Back in the early 90s I made a pair of solid body electric guitars. I copied the Fender Stratocaster body dimensions pretty close using Zebra Wood. I cut the first cody by hand saw then rounded the edges to match the 35th anniversary model I had at the time. I cut the notch for the neck (bought two) by hand. It made me finally get a band saw AND a router with table both from Harbor Freight. The second one went much easier and cutting the openings for the switches, pickups, wires, ETC was way easier with the router! I played them for 4 or 5 years and sold both and my amps to fellow from Tijuana who had a band so I hope they got used well.

I now have a collection of electric sander, planner, better band saw, ETC and find it easier the make my muzzle loaders.
