update...not much

ok, I sand the thing, just the front and the neck, the back is in the same horrible way that in last pics.
I use wax on the body, oil on the fretboard and oil+wax on the neck...
the walnut become brown by itself, is not dying.
this is just a try, will be better in the next weeks.


the wood is a little figured





















Remeber how it start?

Thank YOU! I never thought I'd be able to build my own guitar. Since I've seen your thread, I'm getting some things together, woods, materials, etc. and I'm actually going to give it a shot It's great to see stuff like this.

AS much as i love this build, i have to say that you should plane that fretboard a bit before installing the frets. It is not nearly flat enough.

if you can't find a plane, get a piece of marble or glass and tape some sand paper to it, then rub the fretboard up and down that.

other than that i love it.

the headstock seems a bit oversized for me, but its a matter of taste.

Anyway its the most awesome wood-bulk-to-guitar transformation i have seen here so far. Well done Mauricio.

Thank you! and the head is an effect because the angle I took the pics, Is based on an Ibanez headstock, the I cut it to a Blackmachine-ish shape, ant the body is take from a RG (same size) so I think is well balanced, maybe if I take better pics it will be clearer, but if don`t...well, i`m not 100% happy with the head too, I draw like 20 different designs, and no one really convince me, is difficult to choice one, because I literally can copy any brand/builder I want, but with so much options out there so, I come out with this and I have to learn to love it.

thanks! but it will be in march (hope so)...so...I have to wait...

Edit: 888 post...

ok, the fretboard was not flat and I pass it by mistake, so today I make the work to get it flat...maybe the pics don`t show it, but I make sure with a metal rule and is pretty flat.
I have to adjust the truss rod because the neck was not straight, so I use it for the first time and WORK I`m happy with that, I just turn it clock wise one entire turn (because when I install it was very loose) and the neck go backwards immediate, my truss rod work!! but is the last one I build...for the next projects I have to buy one via internet.

of all the guys on ss.org who are in signed and touring bands or who do session work, and the professional luthiers who do fantastic stuff, i really think the most inspiring stuff comes outta the little guys doing it all by themselves, and still doing a great job of it, you sir are definitely in that group

and i really dig that headstock (granted, i'm a fan of reverse headstocks) the way you've carved and sanded it, it looks like a smoother version of the Blackmachine
