Well for the past few monthes I have been on A roll in my home shop took a studio break for a while..With the goal in mind of makeing a cnc router from the ground up...I built the whole machine except for a few electronics..I also run solidworks basicaly a program that builds 3d models of any parts you can imagine...

I have been a machinist for about 15 years so the shop life is nothing new to me,,Well with that in mind i have designed a guitar that im going to build with the router. I have held nothing back custume inlays ,, the body ,, the neck the fret board..the body will have a book matched quilted top ..walnut fret board 22 frets...with a 10 degree radius..that will graduate up to a 12 degree radius at the 22 fret...

Basicaly i took alot of consideration into the neck and pretty much have a matched evh wolfgang back countor..I got the specs thru warmouth guitar.. they have alot of the specs there on most guitars all you have to due is bring them into the geometry of solid works..The basic idea is if you can draw it then you can machine it to any specs you want.. Basicaly i will be building a music man axis with a few mods...like a back contour..the addition of a tone pot..for the custume stan hinesley electronics

As allways any comments are allways welcome ...the solidworks model I hope you will be able to view this timeAttached Image

The design looks great mate, I like the headstock more than on Tele's really smile.gif

I know you already know this, but I suggest that you find the best wood possible, from the highest mountain, where the Sun is setting wink.gif

Will it have a set neck or bolt-on neck?

Looks nice, kinda like a telecaster with contoured body (except for the headstock ofc), is it going to have humbucker at bridge and single coil at neck?
