    Default Unchained Guitar Project

    Finally got the body and neck for my "Unchained" project!

    Here's the body prepped for the first coat of white...


    Stay tuned for a step-by-step pictorial tutorial!

    jimi, if you get the opportunity later, could you possibly show a normal strat body compared to this one, perhaps side by side? I believe people would get a kick out of seeing just how thick this body truly is.

    SWEEET! I was hoping you'd make it the correct thickness

    Uh, guys... this body is not two inches thick... I'm replicating the "Unchained" guitar...


    ...not the "EVHRude"!


    THAT body ("EVHRude") was the one that was made two inches thick.

    Oooops...rats. My mistake, sorry.

    Any chance you'll be making the "Rude" one as well?

    Oh darn, you're right. I got all excited that someone might actually be building the EVH idiocy that is a 2.25+" guitar...

    Totally my fault, and again I sincerely apologize.

    What kind of wood is the body, Jimi? The tint almost looks a little "green," like poplar or something. What wood was the original "Unchained" guitar?

    Yes, I'll be tackling that enigma wrapped in a riddle very, very shortly!

    You do mean "well-intentioned" idiocy, right?
    I mean, Ed was just trying to compensate for the supposed "loss" of tone from the Floyd by having a 2" thick mahogany body made!
    I guess his logic was that if it works for Les Pauls, it could work for a Strat body as well... it turns out it didn't make a heap of a difference!

    Well yes, but have you ever played a guitar that is that thick?!?! Pure insanity trying to manhandle it.

    A Strat? No. A Les Paul? Yes,... and other than being as heavy as concrete block made for the roof of a 1960's fall-out shelter, it wasn't too bad to play!

    Hehe, I know what you mean. Are you sure Ed's guitar was only 2" thick though?
