The book focuses on the neck/body joint as the heart of the successful guitar and Trekki 8 came out of that video and photo shoot for that eBook. There are some flaws in the guitar (all of which were part of a realistic'how to' for ordinary non-expert builders) and these include: filled but visible'Forstner bit' marks on the neck drop on the back of the guitar. The only reason I didn't continue and sand / carve these out was that I'd reached the minimum thickness I really wanted already so chose to leave them in, albeit filled. The other small flaw is where I demonstrated how not to drill the jack socket hole (lol) accidentally allowing the Forstner bit to wander a mm before cutting straight. You can see both flaws in the pictures.
The basic guitar is made from a 2 piece sapele body with a basic Chinese replacement strat neck which I've fully up-cycled / up-graded with new jumbo wire, re-shaped custom heel and headstock and completely re-finished in wipe-on poly. The guitar features 19:1 tuners, a custom made Tusq nut and a pair of Roswell humbuckers (taken from a customer's new Harley Benton guitar during an upgrade). There's a 3 way toggle switch and volume and tone controls, keeping it very simple. The bridge is a composite of various parts - with nice solid, milled saddles.
It's top-loading for simplicity. The snug neck / body join is held tight by two M8 bolts going into threaded inserts and supported by 2 anodised aluminium gold washers. This fitting allows you to remove the neck for travel if you wish and on replacement the guitar will return to its exact playing action each time.
Because this was made for the eBook, because of the small flaws mentioned and because it's been rented out to someone down in Devon and Cornwall for a week it's not listed as new and is offered at a low price for a Reloved Trekki guitar. Reloved Guitars has been going since 2014, setting up customer guitars, refurbishing and upgrading customer guitars and making custom builds for guitarists worldwide.
You can find Reloved Guitars on Facebook (where there are photo albums for each of these guitars) and on YouTube where I have 750+ full-length set up videos. This item is in the category "Musical Instruments & DJ Equipment\Guitars & Basses\Electric Guitars".
