Default Guitar Mash Paddle

So I had some leftover wood from my keezer build and decided I needed a mash paddle. So this is what I came up with last Saturday. The other guitars in the one pic I also built for me and one of my sons. Don't worry those don't get put into liquids!

Very impressive. Nice wordworking skills.

How long did each guitar take you?

Thanks! It was about 6 months for each. Just working on the side with limited tools. Would do a kit next time for an easier go at it and less headaches!

I was just going to ask what the bottle cap was, I didn't recognize it.

that's friggin awesome!

not that it matters, I'm just curious - 24 frets is unusual... scale length match any actual guitars? fret spacing looks good, love that they space closer together up the neck. did you match actual spacing or just wing it?

again, awesome! good job

Actually, 24 frets isn't that uncommon.

There is a lot of free software that you can use online to give you the proper spacing for any type of guitar and any scale length.

Or maybe he just held an actual guitar up next to the paddle and made marks where they go.
