Yeah, i know.....
I used 2 clamps and some bricks if you believe me )
And this is my 2nd build, got a lot to learn too )
I actually do believe that... Do you have some sort of cheap in-house hardware store brand where you can get a little clamp for a few bucks? Load up on those, they're quite sufficient for neck work, as long as you can get a good even distribution (and use clamping cauls).
I do like the project a lot, when all is said and done.
I can get some more clamps but I was hyped..... My father got 2 chinese clamps for $1,5 each, and they work very well. I bought a new one for the body wings that costed like $8.
Awesome job,dude. Congrats! Looking forward to see it finished.
Got some details done:
Stain is done. Tomorrow I'll apply the mahogany varnish.
So I have stained the guitar with some solvent-based walnut color laquer and the surface is very shiny. Can I apply the clear coat directly, without sanding? Or should I wet sand it?
The guitar turned out really nice!
It plays great, very happy with the EMG Hz, I can get a nice thrashy sound;
Minimal fret buzz with a very low action;
The neck it's really straight even on standard e tuning and not very tightened truss-rod.

Pretty damn nice, especially for a second build!! I need to get off my ass and start some builds, too
Good luck, bro!
This is a video with the progress and the sound of the guitar.
nice, but not my cup of tea.
Damn bro, nice job! You own!
