This was a big experiment for me. more of a curiosity really. the neck is pretty much the “woodworking” portion of this but it was a fun build and turned out awesome and sounds really good. The neck is reclaimed Brazilian Cherry and Oak flooring. The CBG is acoustic and electric. the bridge is a drawer pull. The saddle is a piece of a resin pen blank with a fret cut into it and the silver metal hole covers are plaster washers.
thanks for checking out my first “guitar Build” Enjoy

Nice first try! Not being critical, just trying to help you in your venture, but the drawer pull is the “tail-piece”, the “saddle” is the wood (the resin pen blank) under the fret and the “bridge” is the fret. Keep it up and make a few more, they are habit forming!
