Erics Now Best Guitar

Hey there Phil, I finished up my kit a few weeks ago and haven’t been able to put it down since. This guitar truly was a piece of art before I did anything to it. So satisfied with this guitar. The fret work is the best of any of the guitars I own or have played for that matter.  Definitely learned a lot along the way and made my fair share of mistakes but I wouldn’t change a thing about my first build. Loved every step of the process. My new favorite guitar, I plan to build another one before too long!

Here’s the specs on the thing:
  • Non Chambered – Two piece body
  • Plain maple cap – Mahogany back and neck
  • 60’s Neck
  • Ebony Board
  • Cream bound body and neck
  • One switch (where I like it), one volume, one tone, no bull sh*t
  • Body Top finish – General Finishes java gel stain
  • Neck – Minwax jacobean
  • Back and sides – Just try oil, all finished with tru oil 
  • Tuners – Sperzel trim-lok
  • Nut – Graph tech tusq
  • Pickups – Neck – Gibson 496R/Bridge – Gibson 500T
  • Bridge – Gotoh with Titanium saddles
  • Tailpiece – Gibson TP-6
  • Pots – CTS 500k
  • Cap – Paper-in-oil
  • Pickguard – WD music
