New custom build 7 .

I got bored mulling about in the garage waiting for the sunshine so I can spray my other builds and ended up cutting this template.

And glued a center piece up .

Re: New custom build 7 .

Had a couple of pieces of Walnut top left over from another build and shaped these for the top wings.

Re: New custom build 7 .

Wow, holy molly. You don't hang about do you mate? You and AndyT should have a race to make a UV and we can all watch.

I also think it's borderline madness for a man with amount of guitars you have to have to resort to making even more. LOL

Nice one Al, the neck looks cool and it looks bloody good too. Nice job mate, that laminate looks nice at the beginning also.

Its not about the numbers Al I just cant get out of the building habit . I found a wood importer just down the road from me after years of trawling the net and driving crazy distances looking for the stuff .
Andy makes complete guitars in his dinner hour so no contest , and he's got more tools than me
