Figured I'd start off an actual thread for this build other than the "Let's talk wood" thread which is there just to talk about working with different types of wood etc. Idea for this was needing something light to play since I get a terrible sore back and neck on stage, and I've always loved headless guitars but never really gotten in to the whole rear cut out thing. So I wanted a shape that still looked pretty traditional. A lot of the rear will be carved out somewhat like a Varberg. It's currently an Ash body with an Applewood top, using a Mahogany neck just now as a test I'd much rather have some Ash and use an Applewood fretboard to keep with the wood themes already in place. Mera headless hardware, Dmitry is pretty cool, gives his own advice for your builds if you need it which is helpful. It did take a while for it to arrive though I think I just didn't realise they had to be built yet. Ordered in January arrived late March. They seem to be super smooth when turning so hopefully they work out well. Gonna go with sopabar 8 pups, probably Fishman abasi's when I get another job and can afford them Anyway pics - This is also my first actual build so you can see some mistakes already, few chips from the router getting away. Currently have to move the neck deeper to accommodate for me measuring the bridge/pickup spacing wrong. But once it's done those knots of the Applewood should be right between the pickups. Debating if I should go with clear resin or coloured for those.
