Building my Electric Guitar

My Second Electric Guitar Build

My Second Electric Guitar Build

This is the second electric guitar that I built. Like the first electric guitar I built, this one also uses Mahogany for the wood. The scale length for the neck is based on Gibson's Les Paul - 24 3/4 inches. The body thickness is only 1 1/2 inches, which is thinner than a Les Paul. Whenever people pick it up, their first comment is usually "Oh wow - its so light!". Its also well balanced.

The bridge is a Tune-o-matic bridge, and the pickups are my own / custom wound. They use Alnico 5 magnets, and  resistance of the pickups are: Neck: 8.4 K and the Bridge: 8.6 K.

This electric guitar sits on a custom made shelf that is patterned off of this guitar. The shelf is mounted on the wall so that it appears like it is floating.
