I asked some basic thinline questions, and got some good answers, but also got the recommendation to do a build thread, so here goes. I can't promise that the build will move very quickly, but we will see. The basic idea is to make a thinline style guitar, but with my own body shape design. I will probably order a neck, as I am not brave enough to try making one just yet. I do think I will try winding my own pickups for this build. For my first build, I bought pickups, but I am trying my best to keep costs as low as possible on this one. I also think I will try putting a piezo pickup under the bridge. A local millworks was going out of business, and gave me some drops. Unfortunately I wasn't the first person to go through the wood, but I still got some nice stuff. I have a piece of poplar that I am going to use for the body, and a piece of walnut for the top. The walnut is not quite big enough, so I think I will run a strip of maple down the center of the top.
