Cutting out the bodies for a swamp ash Stratocaster and a black limba Telecaster.
Some pictures for size comparison.This a nimble little thing, with a big bite
Weight is only 3.38 kg or 7.45 lbs.
Finally finished.Only some minor details and a polish left to do 🙂
A few more pics of the semi-hollow and neck.Now with no masking tape.
Cutting out a tele body from some mind-blowing wood.Very brittle, but I have infused it with resin for stability.Seems to work 🙂
Doing some high-speed fretwork.:-)
Current progress on the semi-hollow; Got the neck fretted, tuners fitted and fixed it to the body. I handcrafted a volume and tone control from the excess neck wood. The top is still not glued on. It’s held together by double sided tape. Beside that, I still have an installation of Bridge and stopbar/trem to do.Then a lot of fine sanding and details like fret markers and final clear coat before I can wrap this build up
Weight as it is now = 2.9 kg/6.4 lbs
The neck is going to be as beautiful as the rest of the guitar. 🙂
Fitted the electronics and added some shading to the front and backside.
