Cool My Blackmachine-inspired 8 string build

Hey, folks!

It's been a while since I created a thread about my 6 string Blackmachine-inspired build and unfortunately that project is temporarily offline. Hope to get it running again someday soon.

Anyway, there's some good news. I've been working with another luthier for my first 8 string build, so I'll let you guys see how it's going. Its more of a Blackmachine rip-off than an inspiration itself, but in a neck through fashion.

SPECS:
- Mahogany body, neck and wings;
- 27" Jacarandá da Bahia (brazilian rosewood) fingerboard;
- Spalted Maple top, matching headstock and controls cavity cover;
- Black Bareknuckle Pickups Warpig 8 set;
- Black + anodized gold Sperzel locking tuners;
- Black Hipshot fixed bridge;
- Graphtech nut;

Some very exotic looking piece of Jacarandá da Bahia. It's the center part of the wood, we call it "Brancal" here in Brazil, don't remember how it's called in english. That part of the wood is pretty soft, but its more than useable in a fingerboard.






Beautiful piece of Spalted Maple I had to import through eBay. I always digged spalted maple tops






They look alike, I think:

Dude that looks awesome, you should do some sort of oil finish over it to emphasize the wood grain and make it look more alittle darker. That's just my opinion, it amazing looking though.

!!! Can't wait, I' glad you were planning that! Its going to loook soooo awesome with an oil finish over it!

I see alittle imperfections on the back, is it possible to sand those dents out on the back? The only reason I mention is its a shame, considering the quality of the build. You should redo the control plate too. Like I said the only reason I mention these is because I love this guitar so much. Best of luck! I hope to see more of your builds! Hell once you perfect your technique, I'd considering buying one I'm that impressed!

Sure do, sir! When I said "needs finishing", I meant a lot of sanding and them oiling and coating. A faded finish would be my choice, but this piece of spalted maple is really fragile.

Sorry I didn't make that clear. I used the word "luthier" which means "builder". The guy is named Cleder Peruzzo, you can check out his work here: Peruzzo Custom Guitars . Caxias do Sul

Oh, my bad. For some reason I read that that was your second personal build. Whew! But sweet guitar at any rate!

That looks very sexy... I think I'd have gone with a more personal take on the headstock, though. Like Stinnett did. A question, though: The lines on the back- are those veneer strips with light/dark grain transitions, or wonky glue lines? I'm guessing and hoping for the former.

the wood gives me the wood....

looks damn good i love the elegances of this shape
but the headstock though....
it just screams out loud to get broken. i really dont understand what is the big deal why people love the design of the blackmachine headstocks. they are so damn fragile

i think it wont break as long as the wood and the tension are in balance if you make neck with soft wood or the piece is thin will break otherwise its ok
