2nd home build
Finished my second home build yesterday in time for Christmas!
25 inch scale length
Roasted ash body semi hollowed
8mm ziricote cap
Maple binding and purfling
Mahogany set neck
Ziricote headstock veneer
Gotoh tune-o-matic bridge
Iron Gear Blues Engine PAF humbuckers
Maple pick up surrounds
Wilkinson EZ LOK tuners
Silver nickel control knobs
Satin nitro finish
I found this build much easier than than the last (Tele) even though there were more jobs involved. I think I learnt a lot from my last build, and obviously learnt the most from building one with Mark in Scotland, but also the online course is fantastic, as is this forum, and essential as far as I’m concerned. Mark’s right - any idiot can do it!
Thanks to Mark and Carol and the online community for the inspiration and advice
Happy Christmas all and here's to a new year filled with sawdust
Another stunning build from a community member, absolutely fantastic.
I’m proud of you @richyc keep building.
