    image.jpg image.jpg image.jpg image.jpg image.jpg With the help of two other teachers, we built this guitar as a retirement gift for a collegue. It is a hollow body made of pine cut by my father in law years ago. We decided to use the tele shape because it was simple to do on the cnc. Note the bridge is quite special. It's a string through the sides. We didn't build the neck. Plays nice but will most likely become a wall hanger.

    image.jpeg The biggest issue was to get the strings out since the cnc was programmed to cut the main hole straight down. That created an issue. To fix that, I used an old string to bring the new ones out from the top and to shape the guide. We've added 2 more screws to hold it down securely. The intonation is spot on. It sounds pretty good with the acoustic pickup. We decided not to have any holes for aesthetic reasons. Like the multiac from Godin. Well, we'll do better next time. 30 was there because our fellow teacher is retiring after 30 years of service. The laser engraving was done after. Thanks for all your comments. image.jpeg
