Plans and Templates
Electric Herald Templates
Fantastic free plans and guitar templates in several file formats. I use these on most of my builds.
Ben from Crimson Guitars walks you though exotic guitars builds and basic luthier skills. Sometimes even super short timeline 6 hour builds.
I use parts sourced from several vendors.
I buy lots of guitar parts and most of my tools from Amazon. As a prime member, I get free shipping and lots of other benefits. Also, as an Amazon Associate, I earn from qualifying purchases.
I also buy lots of parts from Guitar Fetish https://www.guitarfetish.com/. GFS sells parts and full guitars. They also buy semi loads of factory closeouts guitar parts. You can find brand name necks and bodies for about $30 each. Their factory buyout section is worth a look/
One of the largest luthier suppliers in the world.
Yeah, OK from time to time I will buy a few parts from wish.com. Some times you find amazing deals, other times you get what you pay for.
I gotta give a shout out to Joshua Randall a fellow Wisconsinite at Humble Pickups. These are the sickest looking pickups I have ever seen and I need to get a pair for a future build.
