before & after...

so, here i was... the deck was placed right by my guitar hero guitar and rock band. I was going to do something else with the board first, but when i looked at it, it's about the size of these toy guitars. well, i decided to trim the guitar and make a guitar out of it. (FYI, i wasn't able to post animated gif for some reason.)

obviously, I’m not done… but I decided to post some images on my progress.


  1. i so hating right now that I didn't have this idea.

    this is going to be sick when it's done knowing you.

  2. That's very cool Masa. Are you going to paint in the details or put in actual parts?

  3. i will try to replicate Eddie Van Helen's frankenstrat (http://www.creamcitymusic.com/t-Eddie_Van_Halen_guitar.aspx).

    most likely i won't be using any of actual parts... since they are about 30% (or so) smaller than the actual guitar. i'm in the process of making everything out of craft wood or other material... including pickups, tremolo, etc.
