I'll say this one for now.
This one I really like:
Here's the last guitar I finished before I went off to college:
This was an experimental exercise which worked out ok.
Trapasoidal neck, open frame, single HB split for HB, Single coil, Parallel.
Perhaps not the best build in the world, but im pretty proud of it, and it sounds just amazing !! =)
That is awesome! Great job!
This is a great thread! We have some extraordinarily gifted builders here for sure!
I think this has been my favorite so far because of the concept and the cause. The body is built entirely from Matt Holliday signature bats, the neck has a faux pine tar finish, Matt's # is inlaid on the fret board, and the strap was hand-stitched to look like a baseball.
This one raised $45,000 for charity.
I'm proud of it but no longer own it.
I've always loved this S-shape that I built a couple years ago. It's the one I want back. The owner recently brought it in to me for a tune-up (check the set-up, minor adjustments) & I enjoyed every minute I had it back in my possession. It gets gigged 3 nights a week in a blues band. The owner loves it & it's his #1. The flame in the neck is amazing!..............
This one for now
This is my most recent build and new favorite, a Mustang bass, with a body made from 100+ year old wormy chestnut pulled from a barn near my dad's house in Arkansas:
I'm building a tele out of old growth western red cedar that's been down for over 100 years. I find it hard to look at it without denting it, what did you use to finish yours?
Wow that's awesome! I think that this is a fantastic idea, how difficult was it to laminate all of the bats together?!
This is my first completed build from scratch(minus bridge, etc.), I built it for my father.... I do miss it.
I would say right now my 5E3 amps I built, cabs are cherry wood with maple feature. All hand wired they both sound great. Cherry wood is about 1/8" thick bent over 7 layers of 1/8" bending ply. About 30 hours work in each cab.
Those are fantastic, SacDAve! I love those cabs!
Okay, I'm deleting my TDPRI account. Nevermind...subscribed! That carbon fiber Strat is simply spectacular. And so is every other damn thing on this thread that makes me [a] jealous, humbled, [c] sick. My junky partscaster has no place here but I'm posting it anyway because I do love it.
But I guess what I'm most proud of is the blonde. I think I'll be keeping that one. If there's one world-class thing in my house, that would be it.
I got 2 I am super proud of but no longer own.
2 1 piece Tele's Alder and Spruce respectively. The one by the amp (alder)with the bigs on it I built for my buddy Dave who was diagnosed with leukemia. I recently started to put up the build thread (1 1/2 later Dave and I went through a lot together as musicians, I really had no place playing with him and his brother but for a short time I did. The other w/out the bigs (spruce) is one I built for him to use as a way to give back. We raised 1,400 and bought 8 tablets for the cancer center that treated him for 4 months. It was important for him to give back, this made it happen in a major way and I am very proud of it.
