David began by showing several full size paper patterns of the solid body electric guitars he has designed. After the shape of the outer body is decided, the electronics has to be chosen and recesses have to be located for the pickups, controls, and jacks. Next the wood is selected based on the desires of the end user for the tonal quality, weight, and finish. All of the paper patterns eventually become wooden templates that are then used with routers equipped with pattern bits to shape the body and create the reliefs for all of the imbedded electronics. He finished up by showing 2 of his finished electric guitars that were simply stunning. Thanks to David for sharing his passion with us.
