A linked list of full instrument builds

These are scratch-built instruments, as opposed to restorations or kit builds. We're just starting out on full-builds, so the list is pretty short at the moment, but it'll grow, so hang in there.

Les Paul Style Guitar

Josh and I are building a Les Paul style, single cut electric guitar with a two piece body and set neck. The body is mahogany and maple, and the neck is mahogany with a purpleheart fretboard.

Concert Ukulele

I'm building this uke for two reasons. I like ukes, and I'm practicing skills like bending and bracing in preparation for a full acoustic guitar build. I'm not in a hurry on this, so the project may drag, but life's what it is, right? Mahogany sides and neck, spruce sound boards, and possibly a wenge fretboard (we'll see).
