She's been a labour of love and taken 1 1/2 years and numerous setbacks to complete but she's finally finished and I love her.

How much did this end up costing you to make? I would absolutely love to make a guitar similar to this! And it's a 7 string! Lol

The materials and hardware were really not very much. Certainly less than £100. The real cost is in all the tools I needed to buy, as I didn't have anything to start with.

That's not bad at all! How did you make the body? Was it a pre made one or did you actually build the whole guitar?
Chemical-Pony's avatar
I made the whole thing from scratch. The neck and head are all one piece of wood which runs all the way through the body. The rest of the body are pieces glued onto the sides.

Are you going to post some sort of tutorial on this? I'd like to make a guitar like this.

I wasn't going to but I can PM you, if you like. I'm certainly no expert in this!

You don't have to if you don't want to. If you do though, thanks! It seems like you knew what you were doing with how good it turned out.

The finished product doesn't convey the amount of disasters and setbacks I had along the way, and I'm not an experienced woodworker so most of it was working things out by trial and error. Luckily I do have a certain amount of patience and determination to see it through. I'll message you with the basics of how I did it.

Human Lyra from the fanfic 'Anthropology' would love this guitar.

Thanks! She took me ages until I was happy with her.
