(Above): Because this guitar is going to be such an unusual shape, I drilled holes in key places outside of the perimeter to aid the jigsawing process, especially where the blade needs to change direction.
And after much careful jigsawing, here (above) is the cut-out body shape.
Hole drilled for the output jack.
The reverse of the body, sanding having commenced. Note I wanted to smooth certain pointy areas that may otherwise cause discomfort.
To give a better idea of the final product, here (above and below) we see the body with top in place (not yet glued) plus the neck, pickup and bridge in position.
Next job: Much more sanding! And then we can think about painting.
