Hi Guy's, I don't think I have posted here before, too many groups.

Anyway, I see solid bodies are the go here so I'd like to show a few.

This first one has a lot of work in it, it uses my modified shape of the Tele, and is the only shape I use unless a customer come up with an idea. 

Cheers Taff

Start them off young.

I tried getting my daughter interested when she was young, she went with the Clarinet instead and hasn't touched it for 12 years. Her son is 3 and seems to like drums for now. I'll get one hooked eventually. LOL

I'd been wanting a nice long scale fretless, I had a porch rail neck on it earlier, but was digging the flat part. Maybe get some nice nylon coated strings for it.

I've got a Plywood Strat body that's the same color. I just put a metal pan in the center with a piezo. It will get a P90 in the neck and I'm making a neck for it now. It'll be a 6 string.

Repurposed old strat body, and a 1x3.

Tuned DGC. 35" scale. Two proofs of concept:

1. flat fretless fingerboards are fun.

2. you can use guitar tuners for bass strings.
