Thats the beauty of building a custom ,you can make it to what ever you want.
I plan on making another shortly like Guthrie’s Mahogany Modern .I might try 24 on the next one but there again due to my limited playing do I need the extra 2 frets.
I could probably start the woodwork at the beginning of the week and start spraying at the end of it if I worked on it full time.I built this one when ever I got the chance and probably took a bout a month from the start to say stringing the instrument ( thats always the most exciting part for me when I start to string it for the very first time, and then wait in anticipation for the moment its first plugged into an amp).
I have Suhr Landau single coils and a Seymour Duncan JB for the bridge .
I already had the pickups and when I can afford it with get a Suhr humbucker for the bridge.
I had the Mahogany from the local Builders merchant and it weighed to much so I routed cavity’s in the body to lower the weight before gluing on the top.
I’ve been building guitar as a Hobby for around 12 years and have quite a few Acoustics and electrics from Maccaferri style .Archtop jazzers ,Sg ‘s ,Tele’s, Strats,a copy of the Merle travis Bigsby guitar and a 6 string Bass and numerous necks.and a PRS copy which I think I posted some photos on this forum last year.
