I am a novice weekend carpenter and an average rock guitarist. I got into guitar making at the start of 1st Lockdown. My first one came out pretty good, so here I am.

My build for GGBO21 will be either a telecaster or a jaguar, styled with fire and metal and themed around the Greek God Hephaestus.

I will make the body myself from either Sequoia or waney edge English Ash, burnt to look like a burnt log, some 'exposed' steel rods or rebar, some bismuth crystals, all suspended in clear epoxy, and stain the body. As I am doing everything in an English backyard on a small table, I have sourced a canadian maple and rosewood neck, which I'll modify.

I'll then finish it off with a pair of P90s from a London pickup company.
