    Azalin's Ibanez Saber type guitar project

    This is my third guitar project that I finished this year (during lockdown). It is a copy of Ibanez S type guitar but I cut all the puzzle pieces independently and used epoxy to have a board.

    I bought a second hand Ibanez S to as donor. Pulled all the hardware, including the neck however I stripped the original headstock and made a new one out of copper plate. Acid etched. I think it looks nice this way.

    I'll attach more pics tonight, and provide some info about the process.

    Thanks for looking.

    That is a really cool build, looks fantastic! What woods are these? How does it play - are you pleased?

    Thanks David!

    I used ash and African mahogany for the body. It feels and plays awesome. Like I play a Prestige guitar. Only thing that I don't like is the EMG 81/85 pickups.

    It looks great! I've built one acoustic guitar and plan to build many more but somewhere along the way I would love to build a few electric and bass guitars.
