Since you guys were so nice as to hold off the contest until I was done school wub, I figured that now I'm obligated to get off my ass and make a guitar! Ze plan: use the cheap Steinberger knockoff bridge I bought from ebay years ago with some low end Ibanez pickups and make a baritone headless. Ze specs: - 27" scale 6 string baritone - 24 fret poplar neck with oak fretboard - Maple body - StoneBurger headless bridge - Ibanez INF pickups from My RG350EX - Medium frets bought from AllParts, dual action trussrod from StewMac. - Either a Steinberger broom body shape or some kind of ergo shape a la Strandberg. So today I went to my local Rona (basically like Home Depot) which was having a store closing sale and grabbed the poplar and oak for the neck. I was hoping to find a decently sized wooden cutting board to use that for the body but they didn't have anything. Any wood that was usable for the body came in way too big a length and was usually warped. When I came home I looked around the garage and saw a big enough piece of pine and figured "good enough." When I asked my dad if he needed it he told me to just find a slab of maple that would be wide enough; luckily there was such a piece. Now, in the spirit of this competition, this maple slab was cut from a huge maple tree that was in our backyard that my dad cut down on his own, because he is manly as f**k and refuses to pay people for things he can do himself. Enough talk, PICTURES. Oak fretboard: Poplar for the neck: Really like the black parts of the grain, makes it look really interesting and is the reason why I bought this piece. And here is the maple: Depending on the body style I got for it's either going to be a 1 piece (broom) or 2 piece (ergo). More updates when I actually do stuff.
