Ed what did you use for the frets on your guitars,?I'm just trying to find wood to work with.I'll take a picture of my little strat ,tomrrow.It mas a surprise stocking stuffer. I thought they made them of wood but this one is made of plastic.It is still cool because I've had many strats.and I miss them all.
The frets are made from a high E guitar string, I think that's recycling! Although I suppose you could use hardwoods, I use bass wood from the hobby shop, the kind people use to build radio control airplanes. It is lightweight and comes in 3' wide by 3' long pieces. I use 1/2" thick for acoustic bodies and to "carve" one-piece necks, and really thin pieces for tops and backs. I have been busy recording this month, trying to wrap up my EP that I want to release by Christmas, but soon I will start a little picture tutorial here is this group on building an acoustic. Edward
