Last summer, our 14 year old Grandson told Grandpa "the woodworker" he'd like to make his own guitar and ask him to help.
So, Gramps armed with wood and tools and Vincent armed with plans and ideas on how he was going to build the coolest of solid body electric guitars EVER, were off and running.
Finding two pieces of pine, they planed, they measured, then they started cutting, trimming and sanding the wood, then the two pieces were glued together.......and looked like this.....
Vincent lives about a half hour from us, so much of the sanding he did at home.
A few weeks later, they were at this point....drilling more holes and fitting the electrical pieces.....
Vincent's dad, Brett, cut and polished a piece of stainless steel to cover the front and back. Vincent painted, sanded, stained, sanded and finally, varnished.
A fellow, Brett works with, helped them with the installation of the components and the wiring.
Finally, Vincent proudly shows Gramps the finished product.
Look at that beauty......
I know, I'm the proud Grandmother and all, but.....believe it or not most of the work on this project was done by a one talented, hard working 14 year old who had the determination to see this project through!
Sure the adults helped and he couldn't have done it without them, but, I'd be willing to bet....he could now!
