  • Guitar Building Resourses, Please List!

    I like many of you dream of building a guitar. I don't mean assembling a kit or staining a pre-cut body. I mean starting with planks of fine wood and shaping my dream axe.

    Please list the best threads, books, websites etc. and relay your own personal experiences.

    And pictures, pictures, pictures!

    Thanks!

        That's what's so great about the Internet:
        It enables pompous blowhards like myself,
        to connect with other pompous blowhards
        in a vast circle jerk of pomposity.

          Stewmac.com has a wide variety of building resources. Videos and materials. lmii.com has many good building materials. Rather expensive though

                      I will probably read all of his build thread(s). The shop in those first few pictures is beautiful.

                      I love wood shops, factories, labs etc.
