I started this build about a year ago and then left it. I originally intended to build a seven string slim bodied guitar, but I lost enthusiasm for it when I realized I would probably rarely play it. I hate building guitars that just sit. Guitars are made to be played.
When I built the Acoustic Seven string Jazz guitar I used a donor acoustic as the base. That acoustic had a bad neck set and at the conclusion of that project I came across that neck which had come off the acoustic body with little damage and decided that now that it was off the body it should be recycled. So I began this scrap wood build with only a neck that I was reluctant to throw away and a body blank I had made from some recycled roof rafters and abandoned for a year. I looked over the drawers in my shop cabinets and decided I could pull enough parts together to do the build that would save that orphaned guitar neck and body blank. And that is how the Scrap Wood project began.
