Step 1: The Body

Picture of The Body

In this step I will tell you how to make the body.
picture 1. We'll start on the lower part of the body. You don't have to make the bar that runs through the middle yet.
picture 2.I would recommend this picture for the lower part .
picture 3. Now we'll start on the upper part. I would recommend this picture for the upper part.
picture 3. Now you're all done with the body.

damn i just made a flying v. oh and nice guitar.

doom980 (author)2009-06-15

Im making a flying v electric bass it has rubber band strings so you can play it.

PineapplebobTheGreat (author)2008-07-25

Should I post mine. It uses mostly connectors, it's an electric guitar, it has a bridge, a wammy, pickups, volume and tone knobs, and it has rubberband strings so you can play on it.

yes do it. im searching for a good knex guitar

I'm begging you to; that sounds awesome :D Plus I've known you for quality work, so it sounds even better coming from you :P

I have made two forms, a fender stratocaster and an x-plorer. I think I might make a les paul. Which of those would be more attractive to you, so I know which one to post.


or xplorer

les paul

oh definetly make the strat x-plorers are horrible

x-plorer all the way, it has a more individual design that the stratocaster. plus james hetfield plays one :D

Oooh... uuuhhh... I'm leaning towards the strat, cause I like the feel of a rounded body. Hmmm... can you post pics here to help my decision? :P

the only one that I've made is the strat, so I'm glad you chose that one. However, i'm taking apart the strat to make the strat again, this time with exact colors. (I think I'm going to do a blue body with white pickguard.)

how much have you gotten done so far? I'm very anxious :D

Oh, cool. Alright. I'll be waiting :D

x-plorer all the way!!!! rock out

post it please sounds great

that's awesome could you post.

Trogador (author)2008-10-11

Sorry to sound really nitpicky, but the headstock is rather large compared to the guitar. Doesn't change the fact that I really like this instructable... finally something besides a damned gun >_>

flames10391 (author)2008-07-20

you mean "site" not "sight" but i guess its kinda cool... you should make an electric guitar version

I know I hate acoustic.

don't hate, appreciate :P without acoustic, no electrics would ever be around...I'm more into hardcore/metal but acoustic is always a good touch

ojochris (author)flames103912008-07-26

then you should listen to the song; "The Light that Blinds" by Shadows Falls.

flames10391 (author)ojochris2008-07-26

i know that song its a good one intro's all calm and then it goes all br00tal on you lol

grevious (author)flames103912008-10-04

u want a song that goes soft to brutal then "fight fire with fire" by "metallica". it's good as. and "battery" by "metallica". thats all i remember off my head atm.

flames10391 (author)grevious2008-10-05

haha i know that was one of the first fast-picking songs i learned

grevious (author)flames103912008-10-06

flames10391 (author)grevious2008-10-06


ojochris (author)flames103912008-07-27

flames10391 (author)ojochris2008-07-27

ojochris (author)flames103912008-07-28

The Jamalam (author)knexcthulu2008-08-07

knexcthulu (author)The Jamalam2008-09-11
