My Francine (long lasting hobby project)

Here’s my Francine (female Frankenstein :slight_smile: )
Soviet guiar body, custom Ibanez-like neck, chinese guts

Stll not finished but playable.
Here’s me playing random stuff


You can’t play black metal unless your guitar is black!

And that’s how you make a middle pickup from neck one (warning: contains graphic)

How many guitars have you made so far?

From the scratch? None ))
I used to repair old guitars some times ago, but it wasn’t for money.
Now I need some guitar to practice, and the only one I have is in drop C ))
So I decided to reanimate that old project.

At last I had a moment to make photoes of my guitar.
As I said earlier I made it from soviet guitar body (which I had to restore, to change for a new neck, to paint etc), a neck from some guitar master, chinise electronics and self-made pickguard.
I had to change middle pickup (reverse the magnet polarity and to change a wiring).

It’s pity that I lost my phone with photoes of making process. Anyway.
There are still a lot of things to do (tone pot, to correct the pickguards shape a bit, to put singles higher, to make the tremolo work etc). But nevertheless - IT’S ALIVE! ))
