1 Mike2000 2 months ago Something I've always wanted to do is to build a guitar. Last year I built (and modified) a cheap kit, see this thread. It was a lot of fun building and solving the problems that came with it. The guitar turned out looking good and playing nice if I may say so myself. That project gave me the confidence to start on the next build from scratch. I know, another Tele. Even though I have some design ideas I want to build, I figured it would be better to focus on the build itself rather then to design something and try to make it work. The last two years I've been gathering parts, woods, tools and a lot of knowledge in the form of books and countless hours of youtube and other forums. I bought a router and built a router table out of an Ikea side table to get started on the self-made templates.I made three neck and six headstock templates before I got the design looking the way I wanted it. Here I'm making the final template I'll be using on the router table for my build.To be continued!
