Building my Electric Guitar

My Third Electric Guitar Build

My Third Electric Guitar Build

This is the third electric guitar that I built. Like the first electric guitar I built, this one also uses Mahogany for the wood for the body, and the neck is maple. The scale length for the neck is based on Gibson's Les Paul - 24 3/4 inches.  This electric guitar seems to have a little brighter tone than my other ones. I attribuite that to the maple neck.

The  pickups are my own / custom wound. They use Alnico 5 magnets, and  resistance of the pickups are: Neck: 8.9 K and the Bridge: 9.1 K.

The more overwound humbuckers give this electric guitar a hotter, and fuller sound than my other ones.
