This was my fist attempt at a guitar from scratch. Body is solid alder with a carved top finished with many coats of wipe-on poly. Neck is hard maple, carved with an asymetrical back and finished with a few coats of tongue oil.

I have all ways thought to become a member of any web site such as this fine web site that any negative thoughts should be forbidden!With this said,I think there are professional Luthiers that have devoted there life's to such an art!I commend these professionals.I feel that if I was going to purchase a Guitar that I needed every day,and I knew I had to depend on it,this would be my choice!This is a great job,but more than any reason for my comment?I love the Body Material,and the SM Components used for the completion of this Guitar.You can buy cheaper parts than SM,but not better!"GREAT JOB".Thank you for sharing this Art.

The templates came from guitarbuildingtemplates.com. Hardware from Stewart MacDonald. I started a thread on tdpri.com - http://www.tdpri.com/forum/other-guitars-other-instruments/352357-wolfgang-build-take-1-a.html
showing progress for this guitar (and some digression.) That's a great site for similar threads. From TDPRI you can search a user named "Guitarnut" with a thread titled "wolfgang build" - that inspired me to start.
I'm building #2 - http://www.tdpri.com/forum/other-guitars-other-instruments/360160-wolfgang-build-take-2-a.html.
I'd be happy to help or follow along and answer questions if I can. Please don't hesitate to message. Thanks for looking.
Darrin_G, that's sharp!! I really like the look of that guitar. I'm actually planning on making one for my oldest son who'll be nine the day after Christmas. Any recommended sources?
