    Thank you very much I couldn't find any exact match for the 'Barolo' colour of the JPX-6, and this was the closest I could get, but I do really like it. It's also VERY metallic but the camera doesn't do an amazing job of showing it.

    I am totally impressed! What a way to start your first guitar. I can remember back to my first build and it wasn't such a pleasant experience, but then again, I just jumped in head first and learn by mistakes. It seems going by your post that you put much thought into the entire process. You sir, are a true inspiration. Thank you. Great sound too btw on your Music-Lad.

    I just stumbled onto this. Amazing work. This is definitely something I could never pull off on my own.

    How is it that everyone has failed to mention Brian May in this whole discussion? In the early '60s, Brian May wanted a Fender Strat, but his family could not afford one. He and his father built the ultra legendary Red Special using an old mantle piece and motorcycle parts. May ended up improving the design of the Strat to suit his own taste by using a chambered body, an extremely complex and diverse pickup switching system and a super short 24" neck scale.

    50 years later, it is one of the most iconic guitars the world has ever known, and he still uses it today. In fact, to my knowledge, the only Queen song not recorded with the Red Special was "Crazy Little Thing Called Love," on which he used Roger Taylor's vintage Telecaster to capture the rockabilly twang.

    Yeah. Like I said, I could never do that on my own.
