new planck guitar!


Started to work on a new planck guitar for a friend musician in France - the plan is to make it as quick and as roughly than the previous one... This friend has similar music tastes as mines: huge sound, heaps of effect pedals, complete chaos, so I imagine that what he expects is more a hurricane trigger than a playable instrument!

Maybe I finally found my niche: one-off handmade cheap ugly awful guitars for noise musicians! As for the Mystery Guitar, the gear is recycled from previous projects left-overs, the body was picked in the street, the alu plate was lying around, only the neck comes from eBay - a cheap but honest strat neck with real tuners (I've seen worse!)

Hopefully to be finished next week! (and you can see that I finally have access to a band saw, so I will revive other projects and cut a couple of bodies soon, at last!)


  1. I enjoy seeing the steps as you create. Looks great!

    How do you find the correct place to put the bridge, is there a magic number?

  2. the magic number is the scale of your guitar, you find it by measuring the distance from the nut to the 12th fret, you double it and you have the distance from the nut to the saddle of the bridge - here it is 65 cm - easy, but not mistake allowed or the guitar will never be in tune...
