I like to tinker with guitars, but I finally made an attempt at building one from scratch. The neck was purchased fully finished, but everything else is my handiwork. It's not good enough to sell, but it's better than I thought I would do for a first attempt. Overall pretty happy. Good excuse to buy some new tools, too, so that's always a plus.

That’s super cool. How did things go with the electrical aspects of the build?

The electronics are easy for me. I've done enough soldering in my life, so that's pretty simple. It's wired with a single coil splitter, so you can get a lot of sounds out of it (Seymour Duncan 59s in the neck and bridge and DiMarzio Super 2 in the middle). The woodworking aspect is what I have less experience with, so finishing it was spotty. It looks really professional in some areas and pretty shitty in others, mostly on the curved sides. I'm going to do another one later in the summer, now that I've learned from enough mistakes to make it decent.
