Arrow post guitars you built

Hy everybody, I don't know If there already is a thread like this, but I'm bored of seeking all the building threads again, you know! It's really interessting to watch the building progress, but I'm always afraid to pass up the finished instruments! There are so many building threads out there and I don't wanna lose sight of your great guitars!

So please post pics of the guitars you built. Just the final product! I'd like to see, your awesome craftsmanskills, okay! Let's go!

Re: post guitars you built

Well, I'm definitely not bored with the building threads, but I do like the idea of a thread that features just completed guitars (builds). So, how 'bout if I get things started. Here are a couple of my octave guitars:











Here's the build thread for these octave guitars...although I didn't go into as much detail as som of the other folks around here: http://www.mylespaul.com/forums/luth...ve-guitar.html


And here are some pics of my Less Tall 1/2 scale mini guitars:











And again, here are a few threads that show more details including some build details:

http://www.mylespaul.com/forums/othe...hnsonized.html
http://www.mylespaul.com/forums/othe...tall-porn.html
http://www.mylespaul.com/forums/othe...-finished.html


I hope you like them!


And let's see some more builds!!!!!

Re: post guitars you built

John, AWESOME work, always enjoy seeing your guitars

did you angle the PU cavities in the third guitar pictured or use the carve for your angle?

The pickup angle would follow the fingerboard.
