    I wanna make my own guitar from scratch, except maybe the neck. For that, I may buy an oversize one and shave it down. I'm a pretty good woodworker with enough power tools in the garage to make Bob Vila jealous. I'm also not afraid to fuck things up a few times until I get it right. Does anyone out there do it and can anyone recommend any good websites?

    Stewart-MacDonald has a lot of guitar making books, www.stewmac.com and some online tips too. i haven't come across many sites that go into a lot of detail on guitar building yet. Stew-Mac has guitar plans, too.

    I just received my How to build a guitar book from Amazon today. I'm gonna try it too, but maybe just start out buying parts from Warmoth and putting it together.
