A Do-It-Yourself guitar for $100?

Postby eriklima » Wed Jul 06, 2016 12:59 pm

Well, I don't have an opinion about what I have found on the U.S Guitar Player's webiste:

http://www.guitarplayer.com/gear/1012/a ... like/58746

Is there anybody here who have crafted a guitar following that tutorial?!?

nah its trash.

im setting up shop right now to do Luthier work myself,

if you have any questions maybe i can assist you in a diy project that is inexpensive but still pro quality otherwise no point in diy kids toys or a guitar warped to dogshit ya know?

you can make your own jigs then get wood at woodshows in your local town for dirt cheap and places like http://www.woodworkerssource.com/shop/BASK.html for certain woods ship to your house but expensive shipping depends what you want then you can even make your own hardware you really need luthier tools to work in 1 thousandth of inch increments or in mm to make a real guitar and machined straight edges the proper tools for job fret installations.
i would say just buy a http://www.rondomusic.com/Agile2500gold.htm

then supe it up with top end hardware as a custom job unless you really want to get into building them
