New Design: Spokes of Sound

This is going to be a new design for a semi solid hollow-body electric. The first step is to always draft a design to scale and make jigs. In this case out of MDF. This is a good step because you can not only use jigs for many routing steps but also to see if it fits in a case. In the past I have made guitars that don't really fit in a case which is a pain. It is called spokes of sound due to an added feature which will present itself later after some progress has been made. (1.5 hr)

In the booth with Rudie

This guitar is getting some lacquer applications. Looks really dark in the photo but has a nice smoky flame burst to it. Its name is Rudie due to the fact that the future owner is a Clash fanatic. Which is OK.
