The Great Guitar Build-off
Before last year's Unofficial Build Orf I'd made a total of one kit guitar, so definitely in the keen beginner end of the guitar building pool. Had a lot of fun last time and managed to not get divorced so am jumping in the deep end to flail around again and hopefully build something guitar shaped.
For the build I'm thinking something pointy that allows me to use James Hetfield's signature pickups....because he's a bona fide guitar hero! Also barbed wire as what’s more METAL than barbed wire?!
