As someone who had a fun time building a kit Tele (with upgrades), I can appreciate the amount of skill and labor that goes into building a guitar. These are beautiful. I still want to build a Strat & Les Paul.

Thanks for sharing!

I am one of the most unmusical persons you'll ever meet... I don't even play a radio very well, but I do admire your handiwork on the Git-Fiddles...

Hehe, yeah, it went for way more than I was expecting.

Electrics are so much easier to do than acoustics. When you start building your electic, go to tdpri.com and post a build thread in the Tele Home Depot section. There are tons of great guys in there, and they're all extremely helpful, especially to new folks. For the acoustic, go to luthiersforum.com. It a builder community focused primarily on acoustic guitars.

Thank you. Yeah, with a Tele, Strat, and LP, you pretty much have the holy trinity of guitars

Don't know how I could have missed this thread. I have a small musical background but it has faded over the years. My complements on the baseball guitar. There was a lot of thought, creativity, and time put into the instrument. And you want to turn pens? I will be looking for others in the future in this section.

Beautiful work.
Being someone who knows nothing about guitars, does the wood make a difference in the sound quality or is it the electronics that determines that?

Thank you, Woodchipper. There's every bit as much artistry and craft in a well-made pen. Seeing a lot of the work here has me in awe.

Thank you, Scollins.

As far as wood making a difference, it depends on who you ask. That's a huge area of debate in the guitar community. In one sense, yes. Everything makes a difference, but it doesn't mean it's a discernible difference.

In my experience, the body wood on an electric guitar has an incredibly small effect on the sound -- not something that would be noticeable. As a matter of fact, it's never been shown that anyone can reliably tell the difference between mahogany or maple on a guitar body just by listening. The same is actually true in acoustics.

The neck wood can have a fairly noticeable impact, though, because the strings more or less come in direct contact through the frets. The density of the neck essentially acts as a filter in certain frequencies.
