Greetings from Italy

Post by Gianca Faco »

Hello guys,

just found this interesting forum. I'm a guitar player from Italy, please to meet you!
I'm also a wood carving hobbyist,here's one of my last works.
I'd like to start learning how to build a guitar from the scratch. I have two spare necks from old guitars, one from a Jackson Kelly and one from an Ibanez Jem555. So the idea would be to build the body and use one of this two necks. About the electronics I have a good knowledge of wiring and drawings (I'm also a sw engineer).. so I joined this forum in order to learn new things. Thank you very much and Happy New Year!

You might even combine your hobbies. Here are two guitars which were posted a few years ago, which are right up your alley:
