DIY - Warmoth anyone?


h*ll
o!

Ok, let's get it right from the start. I've wanted to build my own electric guitar since fourth grade. The thought of playing an instrument I made by myself has never quite left me alone, and it keeps poping up in my head every few months or so. Truble is, I don't have anywhere to do it. I mean, you don't start buying power tools and messing up your (very tiny) appartment for making a guitar, do you? However I've got a fiend whose father teaches wood shop at a nearby school,so thet might just work itself out eventually.

The question is do i start from scratch or do I buy parts and if so, which parts? I've heard Warmoth is prety good but they don't exactly come cheap.

Please help!

Mikael

I have a guitar that I built a little over 10 years ago and it was my main guitar until I bought my universe. It's all Warmoth parts and I've been very very pleased with it.

The ppl there are very nice and they have a fantastic product. The quality rivals most popular guitar manufacturers.

I think you'll be happy with their stuff.

Thanks man!

Did the Warmoth parts require any actual woodworking?

Hi, good luck on your upcoming project.

I'm also making an electric guitar. I have the luck that my dad has 'woodworking' as his hobby, so we have a limited set of powertools at my home. (beltsander, router,...)
This allowed me to start my guitarproject "from scratch".

I'm working on a website to show how I did it, and how i'm doing it.
So all those who are interested in guitarmaking: feel free to go the the following address:

Oh, btw, I ordered my hardware from warmoth.com (see hardware section on the site)

Cheers,
Joten

You *could* assemble it without doing anything, but to really set it up and tweak it to play the way you want, you'll have to do some cutting, sanding, routing etc.

I ended up routing out the neck pocket to lower the neck to the body more and recessing the bridge into the body as well as putting on a roller nut.
