    Making a guitar body!!!

    Looked on a swedish used instrument site and somebody sold a silhouette of a strat body.
    So I bought it.

    Now I'm shaping the tummy and forearm contours.

    I'll probably make it a 1-hum 1-vol body with no pickguard. And EVERTUNE of course

    Why bother with the volume? Just a pickup, and a jack, for always on, always raging TOOOONNNNEEEEEEE.

    You can just superglue the volume knob to the top - no need to bother with a pot underneath.

    Without proper routing table I simply rasp/file/sand the body edges slightly.
