Been thinking about building a Snakehead for a while now , with winter at my doorstep its a good time to get started . I am not going to be 100% accurate but I'll try to get close , the neck I think I'll go 1 11/16" at the nut instead of the original 2" , also gonna go without a truss rod , body I'll make out of pine of some sort , 1 1/2" thick , I'd like to get some sugar pine but its tough to find in this area . The pickup I'll wind myself , gotta research that a bit more . I made a control plate out of aluminum , the pick guard I'll make out of garrolite , gonna order a Sankehead bridge from Marc Rutters , tuners I'll probably get from Stewmac . Here's where I'm at for now , still really in the planning , gathering stage. Neck template ready to be cut and routed 1 1/4" x 1/16" aluminum flat stock After some figuring and drilling After some polishing and knobs and pots Here's the garrolite for the pickguard , I ordered this Thursday afternoon at about 4pm , it was here Friday afternoon , McMaster Carr is the best!
