My first guitar build
As you can see, it's just a mess of parts in a bag with a few pieces taking up the majority of the box.
The body was made to look similar to an Ibanez Jem, although materials weren't the same. Still, it was the look I was wanting to attain.
Before doing any finish work, here's a view of it assembled. The finish didn't turn out how I wanted on this one, so I am planning on redoing it soon. I was trying one of those fancy swirl finishes, but the paint wouldn't float and it ended up running quite a bit, making for some bubbles and drips. It's not all that pretty, but it was my first attempt.
As for playability, it's not awful. The neck feels more like a Gibson than an Ibanez, though. The bridge is ok, but not the greatest. The electronics are adequate, but if I were going to play it much I would be swapping those out for some Duncans or EMG's. As it is, I keep it hidden most of the time.
I think I'll try out my airbrush on it next time and see what I can do that way.
