AdamO Posted October 8, 2014 Report Share Posted October 8, 2014 (edited) So my son turns 15 next month and all he wants is an electric guitar for his birthday. It's been almost a year since my business partner and I made the decision to close Dominus Custom Guitars, but, I've still got a lot of the shop equipment and I figured since it's for my son... It's gonna be something special.. ;) I've designed him a guitar based off a Les Paul, but it's got some trick features too. First it's thinner so it won't weigh as much as a typical Les Paul cinder block strapped around his neck. I added a deeper cutaway with a palm relief for extra easy fret access and a nice belly cut so it doesn't jab him in the ribs... <thumbsup> And since I have a left over Strat-style neck laying around it will use that and have the six-on-a-side headstock. Have not decided exatly how I want to finish it quite yet. Thinking of using ash for the body and staining it with a nice tobacco burst around the edges or just painting it white. Either way it's gonna get gold hardware and some Tesla Opus 1 pickups. (Now I just gotta re-teach myself how to generate toolpaths and dust off the old CNC!) Here are a few teaser pics. I'll keep updating as the build goes forth. Edited October 8, 2014 by AdamO Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
