Welcome to Strat-Talk, JD!
Thanks for cruising in.

Welcome from Hibernia.
Haha yes! I've started work on the garage now, It WILL be clear very shortly..! Currently looks like step-toe's yard.
Haha, don't worry I'll be anxiously approaching each step & it's outcome...!
Greetings and welcome- you will learn loads here!
Surf green/maple neck is a great combo.
Welcome to the forum.
Hi Jon and welcome to ST
If you’re building your own guitar are you doing everything from scratch or buying a kit and putting it together.
just read a review in Guitarist and there’s an article about building a kit, using a Trev Wilkinson kit. Not cheap but apparently it’s all very good quality.
With that you could alter the body contours to your own liking and there’s an option to get the neck with an unshaped head so you can shape it yourself.
anyway, let us know how you get on and photos of the finished article pls
Welcome to the nut house...
Welcome along to the group,, good luck on the build take your time it's better to put on nice quality stuff than the naff,, I built my hybrid strategy around 8 yras ago upgrading it gradually
Hi StratmanNick - thanks for the note! My plan is to go from total scratch, as soon as I've got a clean work area (hopefully by the end of this weekend as been on it most evenings now!!) I plan to start reading through the site to find some drawings for the body and neck. I'm thinking I'd love to build my own guitar from total scratch just because it's an excuse to learn some new woodworking skills and really put my full effort into something - hopefully good enough to be able to pass down one day!
I'll definitely share progress and the finished article! Not sure if it's best to add through this post or create a new post for it??!
Hi telestrat! Thanks for your message - will do for sure! I've got no time frame on the build because I've never done anything like this before and so much to learn.
How did you find building your hybrid? Just love the idea of making something exactly how you want it and you've always got it to improve and tinker with!
Welcome from a "Southern Softy". Lots of good folk on here and lots of knowledge to be shared.
