    I am going to try my first build and see how it goes. I am still reading Koch and Hiscock. I am still in the design phase obv but I am thinking of building something based on an EB3.

    I have two old sewing machines that I will try to use the motors from to build a pickup winder and make my own pickups. If that turns into a disaster I will probably throw 2G&L pickups in there.

    So far thinking:
    4 string
    Neck thru
    Probably - Ebony, mahagony, and maple
    35" scale

    Wish me luck,
