    Hand crafting guitars, because Death Rays are expensive.

    Tony's GR-1SFG Build

    Nice work Mark your PRS-1H looks awesome.

    Thought I'd submit my first build. Took on the GR-1SFG through December and January.

    Had some challenges with the finish. Started staining it but then couldn't get a nice smooth finish with the polyurethane so went with paint instead. Not the finish I was going for but happy enough with it.

    Moved some of the control knobs around so it was more like a Gibson ES-275.

    Anyway here are some pics.

    Cheers,
    Tony
