This was my first from scratch guitar build that I did for a contest on another forum. I have since moved into a few different woodworking projects and away from instrument making due to the upfront cost of parts and materials. Anyway…this is a headless 6 string baritone with a 26” scale and single humbucker. The body has a white oak top with a poplar bottom. The neck is African mahoghany with a maple fretboard.Came out pretty well and it plays. Enjoy.

Pretty cool, I have a guitar but never learned how to play. It would be nice to make one. Looks like you did a real nice job. Looks professional.

I really like the body on it. The grain and the way you blended the edges really make it stand out. Excellent job !!! Mel

That looks awesome, great job! Making something that is both pretty and works correctly is challenging.
