    Electric build II

    ONE BUILD AT A TIME IS NOT ENOUGH.
    I have these planks for the body (16.5x49.5cm each) as well as a Seymour Duncan Nazgul which I've had lying about for a while.

    Been considering making this a Les Paul Junior shape because of Carcass reasons but I'm feeling indecisive so any input would be appreciated.
    The above comment may or may not be about Morbid Angel.

    What shapes do you find most comfortable? I'd start by building one of those

    I've only ever owned strats/superstrats and one Explorer. Superstrat is a safe bet but I would like to try something different.

    I say if you're comfortable building the thing, go for whatever shape you're interested in - the aforementioned singlecut, for instance.

    No point in playing it safe and wishing you hadn't. Just my opinion.
    All I can ask is that I suck a little less each time I pick up my guitar...

    Yeah, I think you're right, I'll keep going with the LPJ plan. Working on jointing at the moment. Will update when I've made notable progress.

    why not make something a little different? still single cut based, but unique? maybe tweak the shape a little, you could carve the top a bit, or give it some non-Kiesel bevels or something.

    unless you want to go classic LPJ which is still cool AF
