Hi I’m starting to build an Ibanez JS1000 guitar from scratch and I know from other sources I’ve gone about it the wrong way so far but it’s all about learning. It’s going to have a fixed Gotoh bridge and have a Dimarzio humbucker at the bridge and a rails Dimarzio single humbucker at the neck.https://www.instagram.com/p/B6yCGB1FVIy/?igshid=12fc2rb25g9od
I’ve already bought myself a Triton JOF1010 router but for what I’ve already done I’ve just been using a belt sander a mouse sander a jigsaw and a friend of my sons small palm router (which I used to make a mess of a neck pocket, hopefully not as bad as it looks. I’ve got some proper templates on their way from the states which should be here sometime in the next 2 weeks.
My question is I was advised to get a drill press with an 8 inch gap between the chuck and column to be able to drill the body holes that I can’t do with the router.
