I had just read an old post about making a guitar in Danelectro style. I looked around the garage and found an old 2x4 stud and some 1/4-inch MDF. I figured, "What the heck?" So here I am. After gluing and shaping, I applied fabric to the top and back. Then I painted the sides black, and taped off a 1/4-inch faux binding. Then I painted the sides red, and lacquered the whole thing. I just finished wet sanding and buffing the body tonight. I'm working on the neck now. Got a ways to go, but it's been fun so far.
