Let's see those unfinished guitars and projects hanging around the shop!
I'll start with one...cause I got a few..lol
Here's a paisley tele with a neck contour that I keep telling myself I'll finish it some day...
Here's one I started about 35 years ago that's inching closer to my workbench. It needs a lot of work. The neck pocket is too deep, too wide and slightly off angle. I blame a teenage me for that.
See the majority of my threads....
The neck is from another guitar, a bad strat copy with a heavy twist, just put it there to see how the strat will look when finish!
So I need to build a neck!!!
You just don't get the effect until you put them all in a little piggy pile! Sheesh... that's a lot of unfinished guitars!
Stop slacking off dude, get to work!
Current project that's taking forever... Body is a sandwich of Mountain Ash (Eucalyptus Regnans, otherwise known as Tasmanian Oak) inside two pieces of Australian Red Cedar (Toona ciliata, from an old piece of furniture) - with an elbow cut. Neck is Warmoth with an ebony fretboard and turquoise dots. It's waiting for a Hipshot tremolo bridge and Lollar Firebirds.
Grass is couch.
Just waiting for some parts to arrive....
I still need strings.
The top one is obviously your favorite, and rightfully so!
Not a tele, but maybe one day I'll go back and finish this little guy. So many dumb mistakes in it though.
Well, there is this Thinline project I started in '13 still gathering dust...
I hogged it out of a cheap donor body, selected a top... then other builds got precedence...
Thought id try and build a guitar in my last two days at school, also thought i'd be smart and use epoxy to glue the blank up. glue let go 1 day after that photo. made a good chopping board
Wow very sharp! It's that paint, fabric or paper?
Yeah, I got just a few . . .mmmm... maybe more
It's Fabric. I done one side at a time using mod podge for glue,which I wouldn't do again because it took forever for it to harden,then I coated the fabric heavily with clear acrylic laquer before trimming the edges with a razor blade. Once the laquer was hard it was like cutting through wax and it was easy to get crisp edges.
This has the potential to be a very embarrassing thread for me.
This '02-ish MIM strat body gave up and lives outside now. It's had two refinish attempts. I'm trying to build up inspiration to try again, but I got nothing.
A lap steel I was working on until I found a Supro that was, you know, functional and real
