making my first guitar


Finally I could start working on this guitar kit project - of course it would have been quicker if I would have just followed the assembly instructions, but the whole thing was of course about getting me started to build things myself - the kind of stuff I probably didn't do since my last pottery class back in 1978...

So I modified the bridge[1] to put a Bigsby clone[2], cut a new pickguard in aluminum[3], tried some different mix to get the right finish[4], redesigned and cut a headstock model[5, 6]... With this little things I already learned a lot and feel more confident - I think that tomorrow I can build most of the guitar...
