Are there any sound clips of your guitars/pickups anywhere?


Check out my book: "Playing Guitar Musically: A Guide to Creativity on Guitar & Bass"
Buy the full book here. eBook - Ģ5. Physical copies also available.

PM me if you want to discuss it or just fancy a chat.

I also give lessons over Skype, Bandhappy and within the Lothians.

Not real clips per say. I have been so busy I have not had time to record anything proper.

However Sensory Amusia guitarist uses one of my guitars. His S9 is equipped with Destroyer model 7 string pickups.

You can hear it in this clip

I should have some more clips shortly as the guitarist for Pivot just finished up in the studio. He also uses one of my guitars equipped with the Diablo model Humbuckers.

Pivot | Facebook

I will put some clips up as soon as I get them.

So I found some incredible wood this week. Zebrawood board 9.5' x 12.5" x 4/4. Quartersawn. I had to make some guitars out of it.

My new stainless pins from MasterMcCarr make lining up scarfs easy.

Those are Bocote my friend. They will become more brown as they age. When they are first cut they are yellow green.. later they become more brown/black.

Is that just surface oxidization? if it were sealed with say epoxy or something would that prevent it from turning brown?

Or is it a UV reaction?

It is a UV reaction. But I will slow it down with an oil with UV inhibitors. The biggest thing with Bocote is that it looks sick when you first cut it. Later it becomes brown... you can slow it down but you can't stop it.

Epoxy really would be a bad way to go as it defeats the goal of feeling like real wood...I really always try to make everything feel like real wood. Not a fan of heavy finishes.

Bocote is never as dry as you want it to be. Since it is a brush cut it is mostly air dried. It always seems to be never fully dried.

I love bocote. It sounds like rosewood and looks crazy. However it is about as stable as an 18 year old cheerleader. Since they air dry it you have to be very careful with it as a lot of time it is not fully dry. I usually cut it and let it sit for 3-4 months (or longer) to make sure it is stable and dry.

I missed out on a few wide pieces that they had at my local wood shop... kills me to think I could have made some tops out of them.

Damn, that would have been cool, It would also be cool to cut a smallish square of it out and leave it in front of a window with a time lapse camera taking photos of it each day.

Thank you.

The neck turned out great... the scarf is basically invisible.

Not finished yet though I have to break it down for finishing after it settles... then it is getting oiled.

I think I am adding a Bourns Volume and 3-way switch to replace the push/pull volume setup.

I was looking at it last night and I just don't think I can get the push/pull all the way in the cavity so the answer is a 3-way.

RoboRAD is coming along. I have done all the 7-string templates and it is time to start cutting wood this weekend. I will get some updates on that at some point.

Test run on the CNC.

A little rough but that was a combination of cheap bit and wrong feed rates. Also pine is nasty... the whole shop smells like a dead Christmas tree.
Well the pickup routes are tight and the neck pocket has to be sanded a small amount to make the neck template fit. I was building a tele while the machine was cutting and it is still way faster than I am. I still had 2 hours left to finish the tele.

Heavy metal tele. I was in a race with my CNC machine and lost... it beat me by about 4 hours.
