Dragon Guitar Body by jendawn77 Dragon Guitar Body by jendawn77
This was my first guitar body to carve. What better subject than a dragon. I used a Dremel to carve the wood. Then I used wood stain and inks for color.

Really great job! How did approach the project? Did you sketch it on the body first or do it free hand? Did you use any reference photos or just your imagination? I only ask because I am thinking of doing something similar myself.

Dude, I got a question.

How do you drill a hole for the wires between the pickup pots?

Sorry for the late response. Haven't been on here in a while.
That is a great question, but unfortunately I don't know the answer. Because I don't want mess with the exact placement of components I order the bodies pre-routed. Plus it makes it alot easier to design with those cavities already in place. I will have to ask my supplier how he drills those holes.

I want to build my own guitars but I don't know if I should get pre-routed ones or route the holes myself. Is it considered cheating if I do get pre-routed bodies? Does it take away from the creative process at all? Do you feel whole knowing that the bodies were pre-routed?

Thanks.

LOL. Awesome question. I personally don't consider it cheating. It was nice not to have to worry myself with the cavity routing and just focus on the overall design. I don't feel like I missed out on part of the process or anything. Plus I wanted those to be routed precise and wasn't sure I could do that on my own. I guess it's whatever works for each artist. You should definitely give it a shot, lots of fun! Good luck to ya!
