This video is the first part of a three part series where I build a custom guitar based on the Gibson Flying V. Even though I rarely play guitar these days, I have always wanted a Flying V, and building guitars is a challenging and rewarding process, so I decided to make one. This is the second guitar I have built, and I wanted to take on a bit more with this one than the last and improve my knowledge and skill. I also wanted to do it without breaking the bank, while still creating a unique guitar. That is why I decided to make it using scrap walnut that I had left over from previous pieces.
This first part shows the initial process of making and shaping the guitar body. Thanks.
