Guitar Build [Complete Part 2]

Published by OurJud in the blog MY GUITAR ENDEAVOURS. Views: 154

So it's finished finished. I'm still not convinced the set-up is perfect. The action at the nut was very high so I adjusted the truss rod and got it closer. I must admit I was doing it blind, turning the allen key without really knowing what I was doing. I then had to play around with the height of the bridge and tailpiece because I was getting terrible buzz when fretting high up the neck.

It's far louder than my Epiphone Les Paul. Don't know if that's because my Epiphone is based on the Les Paul Junior, but it's quite significant. I'm probably only using about 3 of my 10 amps when playing it.

Anyway, pictures as promised.
