Step 1: The Body

picture 3. Now you're all done with the body.

Step 2: Neck and Frets

Here we'll make the neck and the frets.

Step 3: Headstock and Machine Heads

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.

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

author

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.

author
Trogador made it! (author)Trogador2008-08-08

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

author

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.)

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 >_>
