My father was a musician, so I grew up with guitars. Myself I am just a mediocre guitar player and I never thought about technical details until one day the truss rod of my Strat was worn out and I had to buy a new neck. Then I changed the pickups and soon I wanted a new body. Basically I had a new guitar now. Next I wanted to build a custom Telecaster with parts of my choice. So one thing leads to another and I was dreaming of building a guitar from scratch. I soon realised that my knowledge and tools were not sufficient and I was forced to jump in the deep end. I have never regretted my decision, it is a great hobby for me now.
You can see the finished guitar in the image below.
