Ok, officially not "starting" this build until I've left my crappy work environment (early May), but I did have the boards lying around already, so Saturday night I started whipping the rough shape together. What's decided so far: Elongated single cut style, 24(+) frets Multiscale 28"-26.5" $9.75.....3 piece Maple neck $16.21....Basswood body $3-$9.....Katalox, Maple, or Pau Ferro fingerboard (have some of each lying around) $11.24....Bitterroot Truss Rod $1.25....Bone Nut Blank $1.99....Cylinder-style jack $5.79....Dunlop Dual Design strap buttons $12-$20..CTS pots and possiblly a 3-way switch $7-$9.....6 single string bridges or saddles, depending on which works best. $34.99....GOTOH SG381 tuners $25-$50..Pickups Not everything on the shopping list is bought yet, but I'm looking at a rough total of $130-160 so far. Some hardware still in the air, looking at possibility of doing 1-2 pickups, and still undecided whether I'm doing 'buckers or p90s. I may "splurge" and do a veneer top Anxious for the next 3 weeks to pass so I can give full attention to it. Work sucks right now with 50-60 hours/week and doing the job of 3 people.
