The "Worthmaster" Guitar

Designing a Beautiful and Functional Electric Guitar

A custom guitar designed to be best in class in terms of sound quality, materials and construction, as well as price. It uses a "fiesta red" Jazzmaster style body by Warmoth, P90 pickups by Lollar, and a 5A flame maple neck by Musikraft.

There's a full write up where you can read about this project in more detail. The high level summary is that a few years ago I got injured while skiing, and wasn't able to walk for about a year, which is when I started a series of music projects. This guitar was the last of those.


Because this project was completed before this site was made, there's just the final write up.
