    NGD! First build!

    Finally finished my first build. After some struggles, quite a bit of money sunk into tools and alot and lot of time I'm proud to say I've created not only a guitar that functions, but a guitar that plays pretty nicely and sounds pretty great as well. It might not be the absolute best, but with literally 0 woodworking experience, I'm quite satisfied with my first final product.

    Before we move onto specs and pics, I'd like to thank the people who helped me through it all. The people who posted in my build thread and offered information and told me when I fucked up So thanks for that. This guitar would probably be awful without you guys.

    7 strings
    Modern Tele style body shape
    1 piece African Mahogany body
    1 Piece maple neck
    Ziricote Fretbaord and headplate
    Gotoh Tuners
    Hipshot bridge
    27" scale
    24 frets
    Lundgren M7 bridge / Bareknuckle Aftermath Neck

    Onto pics!

    I love this shot of the board.

    I'm going to try to get some clips up in the next few days.
    Here's the build thread:

    Already started my next build. I'll make a thread and link it here when I make it.

    Anyways guys, let me know what you think!

    Wow, first build AND no wood working experience? Very impressive! I think it looks great.
