Hi, I just want to introduce to you my first homemade guitar on which I have been playing for the last 4 weeks smile.gif







Hope you like it.

If anyone's interrested in the building steps, just have a look at my website LBK-GUITARS.

Very nice guitar man!
I'd love to get into that.
I'm curious, how much did the material cost you?

I'm really impressed, looks like a pro-job!

I bet it was a really fun process, much like David above here I'm a bit curious how much a project like this ended up costing you?

All in all, it cost me around 700€ which is approximately 930 USD (tools not included. Just parts and raw materials).

Just so you know, I've got a bass guitar en route. wink.gif
