Beautiful guitar. I know nothing about Hemlock (except that Socrates drank Hemlock as a form a capital punishment), but that’s some beautiful wood. Great work on the sunburst.

Where do you buy your guitar parts?

Another excellent guitar!

Do you find the reclaimed (old) wood to be more resonate than newer woods?

I’m seriously considering a Telecaster, but I really want to find some 100 year old barn wood to make it out of!

You keep inspiring me with your work. I’m a guitarist and I’ve often wanted to do a build on a strat. I don’t have a single coil guitar right now and it would be wonderful to build my own 65 or 61 strat… I’m with Brandon, where do you get your parts and what’s the best advice you can give a first time guitar builder?

Have your say...
