So in my previous band, the guitar player didn't have a baritone and borrowed my cheapo Danelectro reissue all the time. He's really into Mosrites - so I'm going to try and make a Mosrite-inspired bari... with the catch that the total budget has to stay under $400CAN. << This will be a trick! Progress so far - printed out the plans: And got some poplar to glue up for the body: For the neck I have some flatsawn maple (I'll probably laminate the neck for this, since it's a bari), and a nice piece of Jatoba for a fingerboard (it's cheap! it sort of looks like rosewood! takes frets well too, in my experience...) Don't know what I'm going to do for pickups -- if it were for me, I'd put p90s as a Mosrite ought to have... but the guy who'll get it wants humbuckers... And he wants a trem... A proper Moseley trem will blow the budget though, so not sure what's going to happen there. Wish me luck!
