One of a kind, hand build semi hollow body.Maple body, Bubinga top and eucalyptus back. Bubinga neck with eucalyptus fretboard. Bare knuckles Pickups. Weight = 3.5kg
Finally finished.Only some minor details and a polish left to do 🙂
Semi-hollow almost done
A few more pics of the semi-hollow and neck.Now with no masking tape.
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. 🙂
Real guitars have curves
Making some curves in the semi-hollow horns. Both for looks, but mainly to get easy access to the lower frets.
Some still pictures of the current work.
Routing the trussrod channel in neck intended for the semi-hollow.

Doing some finish work on the backside of the semi-hollow I’m building
When finished, this one will stand out for sure
