Can't wait to see some more pics! Love the idea. I also love the RG.

Well, I've been gluing it together piece by piece and it's going pretty well. I definitely shouldve used some type of dowel or biscuit to keep them in place while gluing, but it's gonna work.
I've probably got one or two more nights of gluing left before I'm able to plane it all down and attach it to a pine body. I've got 3 pickups out of a Mexican strat, but I'm not sold on making it a strat body. (I wouldn't have posted on tdpri if I was!) Any ideas how to integrate those pickups and a strat bridge onto a tele body?
Only concern I would have is the end grain butt joints.
That's true. We'll just have to see. If it doesn't work, nothing lost but time and glue.
That's the pioneering spirit that put a man on the moon!
Go for it.
This one from our own Davemac comes to mind as a fine example . Dave's build thread here. Of course you could just use two pickups and a hardtail bridge
The guy is kind of out there but here is a zachary.
Wow. It's crazy but I really like it!
A masterpiece of understatement
the word MOSAIC comes to mind. No reason it shouldnt be succesful with good joinery techniques.
It's crazy enough!!
Go for it.
Tragedy has struck.
Stupid planer. I'm trying to decide where to go from here.
I think I'll just cut the top part off, then trim off the ripped up walnut, and recreate the top. Glue it back on, good as new.
wicked planer action! look forward to seeing the fix
Oh, and next time, don't use the planer. Use a sander..............belt sander, thickness sander, heck, even a handheld DA. But never.............a planer
