Guitar Design

June 12th, 2008

I get into these phases which, if you’re on the periphery of my life, look like ruts, but they’re not. I get an idea and I want to run with it, and that gets in the way of what I’m “supposed” to do.

I’ve completed my guitar design, and now I have a general drawing of the whole thing, left and right sideview drawings (to show the contours), a wiring diagram and pickguard layout, and a rough routing diagram.

On top of that, I got another idea for a guitar design, and it threw off my sleeping schedule. I was laying in bed a few nights ago, trying to fall asleep, and it hit me. I stayed up sketching it out until about 4 a.m. I’m not saying what it is yet. I want to get the plans done first. It’s a unique idea that there may be a niche market for. It would also be a good one to start out with as a practice build–but that’s all I’ll say! I already bought a neck off of Ebay.

I’ve been harassing Geek Squad the best I can. I sent a customer complaint online and by phone, demanding my computer be done by Saturday, and I’ve been calling them constantly. I had to explain to one of them on the phone that it doesn’t need to take a week for something to get shipped from Minneapolis to Kentucky. Every time I buy something expensive it gets shipped two-day Fed Ex. Geek Squad, on the other hand knows they’re losing money when a repair job is under warranty and instead goes with the pony express. Figures.
