    Hey, I was wondering if anyone here has made a guitar on their own, or at least modded one and has been happy with the outcome.

    I made a strat not too long ago, and it looks cool and is really comfortable to play. Only the tone is fucking atrocious :lol:



    i modd all my american strats :wink:
    i remove all pots to get the hottest pickup signal to that 1st pre amp tube, which to me is the most important link in a signal chain!

    I build my own guitars… mostly Tele-style (my avatar is one of them).

    I also have several other guitars (including a few Strats) that I’ve modded… some several times because I wasn’t happy with the result and had to try again. Over the years (and a lot of experimenting) I’ve gotten much better at figuring out what I need to do to get the result I’m looking for, though.

    One thing… I don’t build necks. I tried 2, and both came out terrible. Much better to hand over some $$$ to Warmoth or WD and get your neck from someone who knows what they’re doing!




    Heres a really bad pic of it. I wish I knew what made it sound so bad, I’ve played guitars with EMGs before and they didnt sound like this. But yea, there it is.[/list]



    ive been helping my uncle with a firebird style guitar and lol ive put a mustang bridge on my jazzmaster been think about putting a jaguar pickup in the middle position mybe

    Uh, yeah…..I make guitars. So far I’ve made like…….eh…..five bodies. I’ve reconstructed my Cortez Les Paul copy from the 70’s. It was a bolt on but now it’s a set neck, I made the new heel out of baltic birch. Lutherie is fun for now. I want to get more into it though with better gear and make amps, pedals, and…..stuff. My dad wants me to make him a bass but I havent found the right wood yet. I made my friend a mosrite copy body, but I think he is going to put a lefty strat neck on it. I made the same one for myself but made it semi hollow with a maple leaf sound hole……..looks good, but I’m no Canadian…..hi Allison! I did make a head out of an old Park combo, then took the combo cab and turned it into a cab. The head looks nice but is only like 20 or 25 watts. I wish is was louder, it sounds great for an IC amp. But, yeah….I’m into building and remodeling guitars now….along with playing. I just got a ’67 reissue Epiphone V and it’s now my favorite guitar that I own, (which is only like 14 or 15 I think…not including the bodies). I would like to eventually build J a guitar, but I don’t know what kind to build or at what specs…..or if I should even try (I just started)…..I dont know. You can just tell me if you want one J…haha. Just email me….or send me a message on F.S. I’d also like to meet you, and maybe jam a little…..Randy Jane needs to open for you at LEAST one time. Bye all…..R.J.
