Introduction: Scratch Built Electric Guitar
The final for a music class I took was building an instrument. So I built this.
The electronic components were purchased as a set and then soldered together. The pickups were purchased separately. I added another switch to select either one or both of the coils on each pickup. All the control knobs except the smallest switch were machined on a lathe from aluminum.
The sound is not exceptional and there is some fret buzz, but you can plug this in and play it.
Please comment with any questions about the instrument and the building process.
