A bit late to the lockdown build party, but here we go.
The next build was going to be an incremental improvement on the last one: a small, lightweight headless guitar, this time with Hipshot tuners and headpiece. Then @octatonic
started a thread
about Klein ergonomic guitars. Now I’ve always wondered what a Klein feels like to play. The only way to find out is to build one.
So the body outline is fixed. It will have a J Custom fixed bridge because a) I’ve got one, and b) I don’t use a trem. The headpiece I’m not sure about, I’ve ordered a couple of different types from the internet, and will see which is the most appropriate. With the weight of the J Custom the body is going to be relatively heavy, so I’ll give up the pretence of using light weight wood. I have a length of mahogany type wood which is left over from a window ledge. I was going to use for necks. Instead I’ll glue it up into a body blank.
Meanwhile I’ll think about pickups. Maybe tappable humbuckers
