The winter projects are done on the Ranchero, so I decided to do another guitar build, this time designing my own body instead of copying popular designs. I call it the Shark. The body is reclaimed Alder, the neck is from a Squier Telecaster, and the whammy is a Stratocaster. Here's the concept drawing and the parts loosely mocked up. I'm now waiting for the lacquer paint to cure for a couple weeks before wet sanding, polishing and final assembly.
