For a few years I had a simply beautiful mini Les Paul styled electric 4 string made for me by Andrew Jerman. I loved it, but at the time I wasn't playing it nearly enough and thought someone ought to be enjoying it, so I sold it.
Still...I still really wanted an electric 4 string. Might even be able to play it in our little Irish band. I've also always had a thing for Telecasters, so I ordered the Saga kit. It arrived today and I quickly slapped it together as a dry run before I apply a finish.
This little thing is sweet! It's missing one or two very small screws, but that's no biggie. I'll also have to tinker with the nut and bridge to get the action right, and ground the tailpiece a bit better in the final build. The instructions seem to describe an adjustable bridge with separate saddles, but the one supplied is a compensated rosewood one with what looks for the world like a real bone saddle.
I think I'm gonna go with a black body using automotive paint, maybe metalflake if I can find it. This is gonna be fun.
Any and all suggestions from people who have built these would be welcome. I've already searched the forum and found some good stuff.
