Building a Flying V Guitar out of Scrap Walnut - Part 2

This is the second part of the Flying V build. This is when the guitar starts to actually take shape and starts to look like a guitar. And this is when all the fun stuff like the electronics, controls, and neck start to find their place in the body of the guitar. I decided to order a neck online instead of making my own for a couple reasons. First of all, it would just take too much time to make one. And second, there would be a bit of an investment into buying specialized tools to do all of the detailed work that goes into making a fretboard and neck. At some point I would like to give it a try, but this was the best solution for this guitar.

Part three is coming soon, so be sure to check out the finished product soon. Thanks.

Building a Flying V Guitar out of Scrap Walnut - Part 1

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.
