finishing touches

i then set up the electronics,put the whole thing together,and tested it.

it worked good,so i pulled it all apart again and painted it:

i then finished painting the headstock,sanded down the neck and fitted the scratchplate:

i still have to varnish the neck,do a bit of touch-up painting and paint a maltese cross on the back of it.it has very long sustain,but is very heavy! it has a very rich tone,and is suprisingly comfortable to play.

here is a photo of the guitar im building

i had an old acoustic 12-string guitar neck lying around,so i thought i could make a guitar around it. i origionally made a body out of solid wood,but i made too many mistakes and decided to start again with three sheets of mdf glued together as a laminate. the neck i found turned out to be useless,as it was split,so i ended up making one out of kauri. together,they look like this:

i scavanged the fretboard from the old neck,and made the black bit at the left of the guitar,called the tailpeice,where the strings are anchored. the silver bit next to it,called the bridge,cost $40.
Also, i managed to salvage the truss rod from the old neck,which is a metal rod that stops the neck flexing with the tension of the strings on it.

i am making an electric guitar

i will post pictures as i make it.the neck is made of kauri,and the body is made of a man-made fibre-board called mdf. i couldnt find a single sheet of the right thickness,so i am making the body out of three layers of 12mm mdf glued together. i will keep posting,so keep checking!
