Arturo Fuente #1

Cigar Box Guitar #1. The neck is Maple with a curly Maple fingerboard, medium frets and a Wenge nut. The tuners are leftovers from replacements I've done. This is a Strat scale 25.5".
The Bridge is a chunk of leftover maple from the neck. the nail stop bar is mostly for grounding the strings but also to keep the strings from cutting into the wood. The Pickup is from scraps and wound on my new winder as well as a Piezo as a second source, hence the switch and volume knob. All in all for a first time it turned out decent and sounds fantastic. I'm ready to start Arturo #2, coming soon.
