Ok, let's turn some stuff into a guitar! Have done a couple parts builds so far, and a 'practice' build from scratch using mostly stuff i already had. Ready for the real thing now. Will probably take quite a while since I'm kinda short on 'free-time', but here we go! Body glue up. Nice 8/4 ash i picked up a while back. Had an edge jointed at the lumber yard, and I cut the two pieces to length a few weeks ago. Think it moved on me slightly since it's been sitting, had to try to dress up the edges again before glue up. Not sure i did a fantastic job, but think it'll do. Maple for the neck. Found a length with a bit of figure to it Got to use my new-to-me planer and hack it down to 3/4", then rough cut with the jigsaw Sanded to the line, then over to the router table. Still had an area tearout at the heel - you can see the repair in the bottom right of the next photo Using the jig to route the truss rod slot StewMac Hot rod with the Fender style adjustment. Free handed the wider area to slip the adjustment nut through That'll do Fretboard locators before i cut them down Then hacked the LMII pre-slotted fretboard down to size before glue up That's how she sits for now waiting on my clamps to free up from the body.
