Construction Techniques

Construction Technique on most Abstract guitars are usually neck through with solid wings, There are literally hundreds of wood combinations (see my wood selection).  The Abstract guitars are built using the same tried & true techniques that Jackson & BC Rich have employed for more than 25 years. The tooling & machinery is actually the same machinery that BC Rich utilized during their good years.

Abstract guitars also uses the Gibson, PRS methods of building where the maple top is affixed to a mahogany back. The primary differences being the ability of Abstract guitars to offer Neck through bodies on all models and Deep set neck tenon on all models.

Below you will see the steps that are required to build a Neck Through Body

1.) Neck Blank & 2 Mahogany Wings

Using nothing but the absolute best materials the bodyblanks are single craftsman built from beginning to end. excepting in cases of massive inlays.

2.) Bookmatched Quilted Maple Top

It is harder to build a guitar like this when the top has been precut to size but for aesthetic and cosmetic purposes each top is hand cut and glued up later. Normally the guitar is built with wood that has been pre laminated.

3.) Final Glue Up

This guitar is ready for truss rod installation, Fingerboard and any custom routing that the customer may require. There is no charge for such amenities as custom knob placement,  Custom shaped headstocks, special pickup routes or placement.

4.) Ready for Paint

Up until this point the entire guitar is built by one person The next step is to stain and clear the guitar. Abstract guitars uses an extremely thin but very durable gloss finish. The paint shop has developed a new hybrid type of finish that we are using on all of our guitars built after March of 2002. Currently there are no restrictions on colors, you may order anything you like.

The paint shop will accommodate you, as long as you send some type of sample to duplicate. Incidentally besides painting all the Abstract guitars the paint shop is painting all of the Quicksilver, Pearlcaster, LSR & J Frog guitars at this time.
