10 experiences I had from building my own guitar body from scratch

I started with a block of wood.

    1. It was very challenging

    2. It took me a long time: 2 1/2 years!

    It was a low priority.

    3. It would have been way cheaper to buy a pre made guitar: like half as much

    That wasn‘t really the goal but after working on it for a long time I started to consider this heavily.

    4. I really appreciate the quality in a factory guitar more now

    5. I liked being able to shape the cutaways exactly for me

    6. I bought some complex electronics that I could not install correctly

    I gave up and installed a passive pickup instead

    7. I got much better at routing

    8. Had mixed results with the finish

    Parts that I really liked but parts that are flawed

    9. I’m not sure if I would do it again

    I’m glad that I did it but I spent 100s of hours on it.

    10. But if I did I would know how to do it better!
