Git was born a 6 string, can't even tell you what brand, was hodge podged together with all kinds of crap, First Act parts, Harmony neck and who knows what else, drilling in this body was atrocious, everything was askew big time, and junk parts that have been cobbled together over time.
Reason for this build, Step Son Christmas present, wife said he'd love another guitar, lost his old one. I said how? He pawned his old git to pay some bills, and lost his ticket after paying part of the pawn loan off, and couldn't get it back, shyster pawn broker wanted it for himself so the story goes.
Redesigning the body, he's young(24), likes different cool stuff, and everybody has a Tele or Les body style, going to fill in all the drilled holes and re-drill correctly, even neck alignment was off.
Going to be sanding the neck some, removing the plastic around the neck and headstock, changing the headstock to the design drawn on paper, unless.....I decide to make it a 3 string, then the headstock changes again.
Just not sure if he'd want a 3 string to bash around power chords, he's not that a solid player yet, but was learning pretty steady for a while, some job changes and moves made him give git playing a rest for a while, but he does still have his classical acoustic I gave him a few years back.
Enjoy the pics and build;
