Nice! That fretboard looks really great! Are you going to put a gloss finish over that blue stain?

Flamed myrtle? My initial guess would be flamed maple with a really dark blue stain, but it looks a bit different.

Or maybe figured mahogany?

considering how light the unstained neck pocket is, I'd guess a figured ash.

You sir, win an e cookie!

It's a 6mm myrtlewood top on a white limba back. The hole between the pots serves a purpose...

2nd question: there's some spots in the finish that are lighter than others...why would I not be botheres by that?

You need the darker and lighter streaks to make figuring pop; I was specifically referring to a "spot" under the upper horn carve

The rout between the pots: is that for a DJ-style fader? Chris Buono's got one on his First Act as a volume control, but given your control setup I'd guess that you would use it as a crossfader between the pickups.

Interesting guess! It's actually much, much more simple than that but since no one's guessing I can't reveal it yet :P

In an effort to keep it going, here's the next pic:



Guess the next step in the finishing process. If you all can guess it I'll reveal what the hole is for and what the next actual step is :P

Does it involve that burrito? A small sacrifice to the gods of luthiery, perhaps?

You guys are no fun, only Celticelk is playing along *sadface*

Ok sod it, here's pics of what it looks like now :P




The hole is there for a small metal switch plate (black). The reason to this is because I made the body too thin for a 5 way switch to go in without adjustments like this (it's 39mm). Told you it was basic :P

I like the buritto idea though...

On Monday I'm taking it to my paint/laquer guy to see if we can come up with some creative ideas on how to finish this. Regardless, it will be satin and not gloss, I am 100% set on that unless he suddenly runs out of satin laquer lmao.

So is it gonna have a similar switch to an Ibanez S? Still looking quite nice.

Sorta yea, it's actually just a flat black plate that doesn't really stand out as much. The S switch is too stubby for my tastes.

Richard Thompson's Ferrington Tele has three pickups with separate volume controls, and that's it. He generates variety in tones by changing the relative levels of the pickups. That's a very cool idea in theory, but it's gotta be a nightmare to switch tones in mid-song unless you're the Flash. A crossfader gives fewer options, but it'd be much easier to operate live, and to reproduce specific blends. If you had stacked volume and tone controls, and set each pickup for radically different tones, you could generate some hip filter-style effects in real-time as well.

If you do not bring forth what is within you, what you do not bring forth will destroy you.

So I popped by the guy that does the clearcoating and such and checked a few ideas with him; let's just say I am utterly stoked! This will be a one of a kind, completely unique finish that I don't believe has ever been done before and no it's not some wacky graphics :P

I can't wait
