The Next Round Of Guitar Builds

I've sold out my current batch of Envirocaster guitars, so it's time to get cranking on the next round. The plan is to build 4 guitars at the same time and hopefully have them ready for sale mid summer. This will be tough to do as my freelance graphics business has me jumping and to top it off, I am training for an Ironman triathlon that will take place on June 24th in Coeur D'Alene, Idaho.

The process began today with the fretboards. After cutting the blanks from a slab of Flamed Maple, I carved the radius (12") for each, cut the fret slots, trimmed the boards to shape and drilled the marker holes.

In the next day or so, I hope to pick up a 1/4" Walnut dowel to be used for the markers and some Alder for the body blanks. Building 4 guitars at the same time will be a challenge, but I should be able to do it without any problems. Stay tuned!
