That's not a bad way to do the neck. In a sense, that is what the original RS is; a neck with a body chamber attached around it.

I don't want a guitar exactly like the original, I want to do it like I want it. So don't blame if it's not exactly the same (for the woods). In his book on guitar building, Melvyn Hiscock essentially said that it is easier to create something new than to copy another guitar. I found this to be tru...

These original transformers are indeed very difficult to source, almost impossible now I would say, as it seems not many of these radio sets have been kept over the years, though many were produced at the time. When you look on Ebay at all the european and american vintage radios we can source unti...

Manuel, I contacted you some months ago about your transformers. Your amplifier appears and sounds comparable to the original. Thank you for sharing your build. You are very fortunate to have found a radio and a spare set of transformers. They seem to be as rare as hen's teeth. Forum member Marcus U...

My father bought a Shopsmith Mark V in the late 70's to use for an experimental airplane build. The airplane never got built, but we made a soapbox racer and my first Stratocaster body. He gave it to me several years ago. I have the table saw, lathe, belt sander, jointer, jigsaw, bandsaw, shaper, ro...

Welcome James! Your acoustic is beautiful. If you bent the sides for that guitar with the tools that you have, you will find a way to build a Red Special. Good luck!

Welcome aboard Kelley! That is really nice work for your first and second attempts at making a guitar. You probably won't need much help with the basics of making a guitar, but you have definitely come to the right place for all of the finer details of the RS. Is the blonde guitar a maple neck throu...

Just imagine thousands of people trying to get in the groove of this song at a concert. Luke: I listened to the Radiohead tune and that was something else. "Oh, that's nice. Wait, what? Oh, ok. Rhythm re-established. Wait, it happened again." Doug: Keep your chin up. I'm in the same boat ...

1. Favourite guitar pick? Dunlop Tortex 1 or 1.14 mm “351” style (blue or purple). Look up 351 style. Boom goes the dynamite and mind blown. 2. Guitar solo that you'd most like to be able to play before you die? Probably something Yngwie did. Just to say I could do it. 3. Brian May's most underrate...
