The Great Guitar Build-off
I have spent my career as a home builder. Several years ago, I decided to learn how to play the guitar (unsuccessfully thus far but I am still trying). I discovered YouTube in my search for trying to learn how to play, and I found people teaching the craft of guitar building. I then started thinking maybe I would be better at making guitars than playing due to already having experience in wood-working. In doing so, I absolutely fell in love with this new skill! After a couple of years building guitars and learning from countless YouTube contributors, I also decided to start my own YouTube channel showing people the skills that I have acquired. I just wanted to contribute to the community that opened up this new world to me in hopes that someone would be inspired as I was.
This build will be an entirely new design for me. I am going to incorporate exotic woods, possibly chambered or semi-hollow body construction, multi-laminate neck, and maybe (undecided at this point) P90 pickups. I want my design to have wide spread appeal with distinct characteristics.
