Firstly, if you don’t know what this is then it’s a good natured competition between various online maker people – each tasked with taking a Crimson Guitars kit guitar and turning it into something special. The results of each to be auctioned off for a charity of the maker’s choice.
I’ve got something in me that wants to build a series of guitars out of one type of wood (in start contrast of the the monstrosity I’m making for the Great Guitar Build Off 2020 out of everything). So when Tomster from IP Guitars announced he and a friend were doing a pine guitar challenge I thought I’d like a piece of that action and invited myself to join in.
I never expected it to stretch over 9 long videos!
What we ended up with was a guitar with a pine body, a pine neck and a pine fretboard. From firewood, an old desk and a floor board respectively.
Months later, despite having a few truss rod tweaks, we have a guitar that I’m still playing on a daily basis. Yay for pine 🙂
