I'm back with guitar #3

Post by Jeff Pierce »

Hi everyone. I have built my third guitar and entered it into the Great Guitar Build-off 2021. If anyone is interested, the link to my contest video which includes some build footage is here: https://youtu.be/KXbQpdRJGUY

Very cool. Would be great for some surf rock. Love the care theme (at least that is what it looks like to me, a woody with a surfboard).

Great design and build. I like the way the center laminations in the curly maple looks like a neck-through. Is it? What did you build the rails out of?

Thanks, guys. Barry, the ribs are 3/8" diameter aluminum half round I bought from McMaster Carr. I ground the ends into a rounded shape and polished them. Stainless steel would be better, but I haven't got the tools for that.

It would be heavier but I am not sure it would be better.

Thats so good!!!! But I prefer HSS configuration rather than SSS (because of it's thickness).
