My second build, my own design

My daughter asked me to build her a guitar and gave me a wish list of features. I ended up creating my own design, though much of it was strat based. It has a spalted maple semi-hollow body, carved out from the back, with a mahogany back panel, maple neck and ebony fretboard. I used lipstick pickups...

Thanks to all who commented. Yes, Brian, you were right, there was a next one. I'm not great at documenting things, so I finished it without posting any progress pics. I will open a separate thread to post some pics of the final product later today

Newbie build

New to the forum and new to guitar building. Just finished my first guitar. Not sure if there will be others. I had 'build a guitar' on my bucket list for a long time and I thoroughly enjoyed the process. My next task is to learn how to play it, lol. Anyway, it is an approximation of a Gibson CS-356...
