Over the last two years I’ve built a few kit guitars and a couple of high spec partcasters. Have fully caught the bug I’ve spent the last few months gathering the tool, material and hopefully knowledge to start building from scratch. Logical first project was obviously a pair of Billy Bos, right? I mentioned this to a buddy who immediately gave me a big ole slab of cherry, so I made some body blanks. I’m using a Potvin template as the starting point. The bodies are chambered a have a quilt/flame top and a mildly flamed cherry top. Since the bodies are cherry, I figured the necks should be too. I spent a ton of time figuring out break angle and tried several jigs to get a tenon joint. Both neck pockets are cut, and seem like they are going to work well. The cherry top one has been routed to shape and dry fit with the in shaped neck. The should get the maple top one to the same state any day. I’ll do my best to document the rest the best I can. Neck shaping , fretting, inlay, binding will all be firsts. The maple top will be an over the top triple filter’tron, triple bound, bigsby monstrosity and the other will be a very simple wrap-tail, single power’tron + JR style. Any feedback, advice, experience, wisdom is invited. Stay tuned, I guess?
