    Completed Electric Guitar (pic heavy)

    This is a hard tail electric guitar made for my oldest son....my 2nd guitar, and 2nd completed project of the year. The front is curly maple with green dye, the body is ash painted black. The finish is lacquer. Those interested in details of the build can find more info here. Completion time was about a month...roughly 70 hours. There are still a few adjustments to be made, and I need to fit cover for the jack, but it's working well so far.

    Great looking final pics of the guitar Scott Man anyone would love to have that as their own. The only thing I can see that would have been neat to do is to have created a logo and had it inlayed in the head. Great job and luck son

    That is a sexy looking beast. Well done. Great body-style / color combination.

    Great job!

    For your next one I agree with Tom, you might want to explore doing an inlay.

    You could always get some decal paper and print a logo you could put on this one...

    Took the words right out of my fingertips. It came out looking great, Scott. I really like the body shape, and your dye job looks fantastic. What does young "Shredder" Spencer think of it?
