One day my oldest boy asked me if I had a guitar he could use. Unfortunately mine are lefty and I thought it would be a perfect present, if I could build his first guitar before his 16th birthday. He hasn't determined his music style yet, also he is not expecting gorgeous guitar. He simply wants to have a decent one he can start with to learn music. I decided to go with Telecaster-based, a little bit personalized design that would be good for him. Body : Semi-hollow, maple top, alder back Neck : Typical bolt-on, 25-1/2" scale, 22 frets, maple/walnut 5-ply Fingerboard : Maple (laminated) Pickups : 3 X P90 (non brand) Tuners : Gotoh SG381 diecast Bridge : Gotoh GTC101 with solid brass saddles As always, the first thing to do is making templates.
