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/luthiers-corner/4779-less-tall-octave-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:

I hope you like them!


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

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.
