      Fretboard slotted and radius sanded. 10" radius, 24.5" scale. Honduran rosewood board. Very hard stuff. It took hours to sand down.

        This time, I'm not starting with a bunch of jacked up parts.

        So far, it hasn't been bad. Cutting the fret slots was nerve wracking but wasn't really that difficult.

            You folks are so talented. I doubt I could put together a diddly bo from scratch, but I do fine when someone else does all the hard work for me. I can drill holes and screw things together like nobody's business!



            Best wishes on your awesome new project.

              I'd love to see a functioning electric guitar built from a living tree. Need some all weather strings.

                We all have our strengths. Personally, I'd trade the ability to make one for the ability to play one any day.

                  Dang! That's some nice wood (insert obligatory that's what she said).



                  Can't wait to see this as it goes along.



                  Yours going to have a soundhole, f-holes or just be chambered?

                    Some of the best guitars I've made have Honduran Rosewood fingerboards. Love it.

                      That's all walnut left from my haul last spring.

                      It'll be completely hollow but the jury is still out on whether I use f holes or not. I'm trying to avoid making a feedback machine.

                        I learned about it in my research and it gets much praise, though I've never used it before.

                        It's very waxy and incredibly hard. The dust is also a nasty respiratory irritant. I've had to take some pretty extreme measures when working with it.

                          Glue is fun.
