So while the clear dries on a Tele type I am building I figured I'd start my next build. My son is taking classical guitar lessons and I thought i'd build him a solid body nylon string guitar using piezo for the pickup.
Does this shape look familiar? It should to the Pantera owners as I traced my X390, and then changed it to a single horn design.
I had already thought about building a single horned Pantera and this seemed to be the perfect opportunity. My application for the Westone trademark is in the final stage, so this may end up as a 'legal' Westone albeit no relation to it's origins other than the shape and the name. If I do choose to use the Westone name, all guitars will be hand made one offs - no interest in going any further.
The body will be walnut/maple/walnut laminate - kinda like the high end daion look, bolt on neck, nylon string, piezo saddle with preamp built in and still undecided on the neck - probably maple. Here is hoping on a successful build eh!
FWIW, an after market esoteric nut is a solution to a problem that doesn't exist, and a great way to convert your money into someone else’s.
