Cool! What's going on there exactly? Busy-bodies like me just need to know the details! :)

I did the Taylor Guitar factory tour a couple of years ago and found it fascinating. I love this kind of stuff. I'm envious of your skills.

Hi Scarebear........Taylor Guitar factory tour sounds great, always cool to see the build assembly and techniques etc  8)
.... this is a shot of the neck construction - here I have hand planed up the maple pieces for the neck and then glued together form a 7 piece laminate with walnut veneers inbetween.  Doing this in one go is a bit stressy, particularly when using polyurethane glue, as the open time is not very long, but it gives a good strong bond.  So, after some swearing and sweating, you end up with the pic here....  check out this link for the rest of the pics.... let me know what you think, I got hold of some really nice veneers for the headstock  :)  http://bordello.guitars/news-article/New-T-Model-work-so-far

Cheers!! :)

...gluing on the Vavonna veneer...


front of the headstock cut to shape.....birdseye maple ...

They're awesome photographs. Thanks for sharing those. I'd love to build an electric guitar just once.

Awesome! I wonder how it'd look with a set of Dialtone Pickups installed in it... ;)

For a VERY quick moment we'd thought about trying to build an electric guitar ourselves, but then we realized how much work it is, and how hard it is to get it right, so we decided to leave it up to the experts. We really respect the folks like you who are able to pull it off! Seeing the development from scratch is really cool, too.

Always open to suggestions/ new ideas  ;). Very interesting concept you have. To add my opinion on finish, I personally like the Cosmo Black finish that Gotoh do on their hardware. Not sure how they achieve that. Bareknuckle do some interesting finishes too.
