Following my fairly successful ukelele build recently, I decided up the stakes a bit and have a go at building an electric guitar. I’d never built a guitar before.
I would start by making the neck. I used oak which came from some salvaged hat and coat stands – I had to cut them to length, thickness plane them and then laminate two pieces together to give me a workpiece which was the right size. Then I could mark up where the headstock and nut would be, and also where the neck would meet the body.
