Have any of you built a guitar? I’m curious to hear your experiences.

I’ve assembled three, usually with some help. Every time I buy parts, even from the same place (so they know they’re going together and should not screw it up), there’s something up with the parts. For example, my 3rd one, they cut the nut too low and it needed three shims to raise it. I didn’t know how off it was (I could just tell it wasn’t right) or have the shims, so I took it to a pro, who fixed that and then re-did my setup.

If you’ve never built one and always wanted to, I have a video showing how easy most of it is:
