yeahitstaylorb I got a kit from BYO Guitar last week for my birthday. I've been wanting to build a guitar along with having a Les Paul shaped (single cutaway) guitar. I figure if this goes well, I might start building and selling some guitars for a fun job on the side. This is gonna be my summer project, though I'm aching to start it right now.

What color should I finish the guitar? I've been leaning mostly towards giving it a clear coat, but I've also considered a lavender or baby blue. What do you guys think?

  •   troy_castle_echoes I would be careful with those especially since the hardware is really a minus. Id think about getting better parts in the future. But I like the idea of a baby blue Les Paul 2h
  •   guitars_of_insta How much was it? 2h
  •   yeahitstaylorb @troy_castle_echoes Yeah, I agree. I just wanted cheap parts for my first project. If this goes well, I'll probably invest in much better hardware. Baby blue is pretty awesome. 2h
  •   troy_castle_echoes Some really good hardware for the money is "Wilkinson" they make bridges, tuners, etc for Les Paul's and such. They aren't bad for about $20 2h
  •   yeahitstaylorb @guitars_of_insta There are cheap LP kits from like 150-250 depending on the materials. 2h
  •   yeahitstaylorb @troy_castle_echoes I'll have to look into those, I want this project to turn out amazing. 2h
  •   guitars_of_insta Yeah Wilkinson make the pickups that go into the high end fenders. 1h

ohmygodjack We came in fourth which was cool considering the judges were pretty much the most biased people I have ever met. Good job gents. #adamandtheconglomerates #pineapplecowboy #fusion #progressive #softrock #PETEY 15h
