I am a longtime guitar hobbyist who has recently gotten into woodworking. Seeing the Great Guitar Buildoff last year has inspired me to try my hand at making my own custom guitar instead of buying one off the shelf. I have long wanted an electric guitar with a piezo pickup, but it has always been lower on the priority list than other purchases-- so that will be the cornerstone of my from-scratch build. For my kit build, I wanted to try some new (to me) shaping techniques before using them on the scratch build. The kit build will involve making a more jazz-inspired look.
