Full disclosure, I like tele's just fine. However, I also love trying new stuff. I've looked at ergonomic guitars over the years and none of them seemed to really work for me. Then I saw a picture of an ergonomic guitar loosely based on a tele. I thought it was a cool idea, but there were a few things with the shape that I didn't like, so I set out to design my own. I chose the name Supernova because it fits with my cosmological naming scheme and because it is a very new take on a very old classic. This will be a slow build. I've got several non-guitar projects I have going concurrently, but figured I would start this now. Basic specs: - Alder body - Roasted maple neck - Roasted birdseye fretboard - 25.5" scale length - black hardware - Blonde/off white finish, black pickguard Here is the design drawing. Yes I know the string ferrules don't agree with the bridge. I originally designed this as a multiscale but decided I would prototype it with a standard bridge so I don't have to make the bridge pieces. I started on templates yesterday. Should be a fun one once it's all done!
