Pretty sweet... Are you a custom guitar builder by trade? How close are the specs to the originals (electronics, scale length, wood..etc)

Can you PM pricing? Unless you are open to posting it publicly?

Thanks

HEY GEMARI77, I'M NOT A BUILDER BY TRADE...I JUST LOVED THE GUITAR SO MUCH GROWING UP AND I ALWAYS WANTED ONE...NEVER COULD AFFORD ONE SO WHEN I GOT 2 HIGH SCHOOL I BUILT MY FIRST ONE BY HAND. ALTHOUGH IT LOOKED TERRIBLE BECAUSE BACK THEN THERE WASN'T TOO MANY GOOD SHOTS OF THE GUITAR TO REFER TO OR TEMPLATES TO USE, IT STILL SPARKED MY INTEREST 2 TRY AGAIN.

SO I WANTED TO MAKE THEM AGAIN, ESPECIALLY FOR PEOPLE WHO DON'T PLAY BUT JUST WANT ONE TO HAVE AND DISPLAY WITHOUT HAVING TO PAY TONS OF MONEY FOR IT. I MADE IT EXACT TO THE PRINCE GUITAR SPECS...HAS WORKING PARTS AS WELL WITH GOLD STRAP LOCKS. THIS WILL BE A BEAUTIFUL ADDITION TO ANYONE'S PRINCE COLLECTION!!

Hey they look good,real good! After I built that one a few years I haven't tried it since. The single coil cavity is where I went wrong along with the slanted outer-edge & that guitar is not even playable at this point. Maybe this summer I may try & correct my mistakes as I spent a lot of money on the maple, I got one with a built neck along with wings waiting to be attached but have not had the will to go at it again for now. Who did your fret work & the painting? This is Brian btw!!!!

Hey Brian, I did my own paint...although its not the best, for a model it looks damn good. But the fret work...being that these are non playable models, those are not frets at all! Lol they are actually just chrome car trim cut and shined to resemble fret wire.

U should pull that wood out and try again...I made a ton....a ton of mistakes, but the good part is u learn from them and u get better! Best of luck Bruh
