June 20, 2019 / By Adeline
Question: I planning to create my own guitar (i will buy the parts, i won't make them). and it would be a great help if someone could write down some information. I need to know the best kind of body woods and the best woods for neck (make them a list). And if you know some good EMG pickups models.One last thing, if anyone knows how the electric system works inside the electric guitar. Thanks in advance.

There are a number of good books on making solid body and hollow body guitars. I am away from my references, otherwise I would list them. Mahogany is a common choice for solid body guitars, but use a resperator any time you are creating dust as most people are allergic to the oils in the wood dust. the same for Walnut species general as well. You can buy the replacement necks, that will save you some time laying out the frets nit the books cover that as well. As for who makes the best pickups- that is just a matter of tastes in most cases as it is subjective. If you are going for a solid body, get the pickups most similar to those of a Strat if you want it to sound like a strat Since the originals devised by Les Paul - the person, in the 1940's he started out with little more than components from old head phones. The pickups themselves are essentially just fine gauge wire wound around a core that can be magentized, but does not hold much residual magentism. so cost and look can be considered valid criteria for choice. Magnetic and stray signal rejection should be considerations, but many are so close you would not hear the actual differences. The hook ups and string distance above the pickup would be included with the pickup if not available as a download from the website of the manufacturer. As for "innards" unless you are set up for phantom power specifically, there is just wire and the 1/4 inch jack inside. The effects are most often attached to the plate you see under the lever ( if you add that) and that would be inset into the body as a unit for durability. Considering the unwanted noise you could introduce into a preamp circuit, you are best off keeping the preamp out of the body, but that would normally be the only thing needing phantom power and potentially the only thing you might put inside.

I must say, everyone could list their favorite type of material used for the body and neck, but if you really want it to be custom to your specifications you should do some research on what the pros and cons are for every wood type, same goes for pick ups. Since it would just be a less personal custom-made guitar if you make it to everyone else's specifications. Anyways, I prefer a mahogany body on some of my guitars.

It could be your picking/strumming technique. You could be stringing too tight or bending too far too often. Or it could be a burr on the bridge or post or a sharp edge on the nut (you should be able to tell if this is the case by where the string breaks and if it's the same string or strings every time). Not keeping your strings clean will also cause them to break more frequently. As for whether you should use a heavier gauge, I would say it would depend on your technique and personal preference. I play alot of heavy rock and metal but use ultra light strings (.08). I do a lot of bending and hammering but if I keep my strings clean and my guitar maintenanced I rarely break strings. However it may be worth noting that I use also Thin picks. If I used heavier picks all of the time with ultra light strings I would probably break strings more often.
