AMR – Handmade Guitar

In the past few months, my friend and former band-mate Amr Rifai, the vocalist of Nu.Clear.Dawn has been working on a DIY project unlike any other, an electric guitar.

Amr regularly kept me updated of his project with pictures he’s been taking during the creating process. His project has finally completed earlier this week after an entire year of hard work, and I don’t think there’s a better opportunity than this to share this phenomenal creation and thrilling experience of his with all of you.

And here are the specs for all you guitar maniacs

3 laminates maple, neck-through with mahogany body.
Thickness at first fret : 20.5 mm
width at nut : 43 mm
width at last fret : 57 mm
scale length : 25.5 inches
Number of frets : 24
neck shape : vintage D shape
fretboard : Maple

fretboard radius : 16-14 ( compound )
frets : Super jumbo nickle – silver alloy.
pickups : Dimarzio Evolution neck and bridge.

Not only you crafted an instrument, you created an instrument that is able to create music, it must feel like the greatest achievement and you should feel proud! I’d absolutely love to hear it and maybe play it one day. I hope you keep making more guitars, especially now that you earned tons of experience creating your first guitar, I’m sure you already have improvements in your mind for the next one! 
Amr, my buddy, this is absolutely awesome. You are awesome!
