All of the stuff for this build can be got at Lowe's Hardware store except for the string fasteners/lugs which I got from an electrical supply store. The Cherry wood was $11. I don't know, maybe I spent $50 buying the hardware, glues, etc... The most expensive thing is farming out the cutting of the wood which looks like around $65/hr from a Cabinetry/Woodworking shop. First two images show the wood marked up on the face and the side. The next two images show the iron reinforcement bars and where they go (they were out of aluminum). The next image shows how the neck tapers from thin at the nut to thick at the butt end and the depth of the reinforcement bars on the back of the neck.
