UPDATE!!!!!

Some video demos of the guitar!


ORIGINAL POST:

Old thread about it on another forum:
http://www.metalguitarist.org/forum...78289-arsestick-girlfriends-guitar-build.html
Basically, she woke up a morning about a year ago, draw a guitar on a post-it and now, it's actually finished!
She built it all herself, while I assisted with knowledge about guitar construction etc.

Message from Karin:
"It's now finished! Three stringed, plug and play, and more sinister than ever!" :flex:

DOCUMENTARY!

At 14:02 I play a little on it!

She wanted me to demo it. She haven't played much guitar before this, but the guitar itself is really cool! I can make a better tone demo of it soon :) it has a very special sound due to the pickup and resistor in the wiring. VERY middy. But it has a very singing quality to it I like, and can probably find some use for myself in a situation or two when recording stuff hehe

Cool :)

It's perfectly aligned. It's just the photo angle.

Didnt watched it all, but why the pickup like that? Curious :)
It's a stacked singlecoil, put in slant, in a plastic EMG-like cover.
She didn't want a "cigarbox humbucker" but rather something like that.
With the wiring (using a resistor for some reason, there's a wiring diagram in the video) she did it gives a very special tone, but a quite cool one.
Nothing a regular metal guitarist would use but it sounds cool!
