After six months, and lots of work, the day has come for final assembly. Thank God! This is the point in the project that you just want to be done, play the thing, and move on to the next project. That being said, I think I may be able to complete my next guitar in much less time (hopefully four months or less). Oh, and the next guitar will be a “scratch build” from nothing but a block of wood. But enough of that now, we’re here to talk 7-String LED awesomeness!
So without further ado, here’s the final product.
LED Lights are off.
The LED Lighting is illuminated, along with the power button and momentary killswitch button LED lights.
Note the 7-String recessed Floyd Rose tremolo setup. It took a solid hour to tune this for the first time, and adjust the bridge height / intonation.
As I mentioned earlier, it took quite some time getting the string action perfectly set. In the end, though, it was well worth it. This plays like a dream.
And last but not least, the vanity! My signature logo, and model LD-1. LD-1 stands for LED Guitar 1. I hope you enjoyed this build, and check out my future projects.
Next up, I’ll be building a Telecaster Style guitar, starting with nothing but a block of wood. I’m thinking goldtop finish, and chrome hardware; perhaps some electronics or lighting will find its way in there too!
