    Kech and I began a conversation awhile back about guitars. I saw his avatar pic at the time and asked him if the guitar was a Gibson Goldtop. This led to me asking more questions about wiring and guitar building.

    Over the last few months, I've begun resourcing all the parts and I'm down to the few parts still needed, mainly the body is being CnCed (still on order) and should be ready maybe mid May. Then the building and creating begins on what will be called my - Grunt-Caster

    So... anyone else want to show off guitars they own or built or ask questions?

    I am in awe of people who are creative, especially musically. I myself do not have this gift and find it amazing when a person creates beautiful music out of nothingness.

    No questions, no guitars, just appreciation.

    I got a 12 string acoustic that I want to put a pickup in, would love to hear some recommendations. I want as little surgery as possible but not a fan of the piezo ones that go in under the saddle.

    I know there are acoustic pickups that attached to the hole under the strings.

    Do a "acoustic pickup" search and many online music outlets will pop up. Amazon too.

    Re: Guitar building, ahhhh Guitar anything thread

    I posted this on FB today as I was thinking about how I want to personalize the guitar I will put together.

    Here is the concept/idea that I have for a parts caster guitar I'm resourcing. This will be on the head stock. The CIB will be an actual miniature badge that I will inlay and I'll decal the words on either side.
    Thoughts, ideas?

    Other players on a forum I used to go on raved about K and K pick-ups . http://www.kksound.com/
    All my guitars have the under saddle pickups which with a good preamp can be helped in the tone department .

    Since this is my first guitar build I did not go high end in pricing. I got my strat neck on ebay for $55. I have to do some fret leveling, fret end work, but other than that, the neck is good to go.

    I went with a set of Warman (out of the UK - used their Ebay store) Tennessee Revival humbuckers and 1 Peacemaker, which is a single coil sized humbucker. The guitar is a HSH route and I will be able to coil tap each humbucker also.

    Yes at that price point I would expect to do some fret work. Those sharp fret end can be rough on the hands !

    Lots of tonal variety to be had with that set-up . I have a Fender 1986 Japanese Tele with SSH set-up and 3 mini switches to get all the combos .

    Yep, doing the same with 3 mini toggles. I went with a TS body, so a tele body but the strat HSH route. The body is the last part I'm waiting for. Ordered from Rosser Guitars out of North Carolina.

    Looks like a three piece solid body, so all routing from the backside for the pots/switch/wiring?
