Glad you dig!!!
Also he says pickups have since been lowered so the string isn't scraping it
Pull volume knob kill switch and momentary button killswitch in the red circle!
The only thing I think is a bummer is those blue lines not being smooth and even. It would be awesome if he could template cut with a router, or even CNC, and have them be perfect. It just looks too freehand for me.
You know I thought he actually did more cnc work when I started the build had no idea it's all hand done. On that note I would have opted to get inlays only on the neck more straightforward blocks and side markers. For a cleaner carbon fiber look.
The inlays by far was the longest part of the process and leaves something to be desired. My signature WIZARDTAC MOD-1 on the back of the neck does look stellar though.
Yeah, that part looks amazing. I wonder if he did it in a different way? Maybe he had preformed letters and inlayed them?
There's an Instagram video of him doing the inlays on the signature and it was basically a micro Dremel and some kind of transfer material as a stencil it looked like
Not gonna lie - that looks awesome! If the stuff I mentioned earlier (the lack of smooth/ straight lines) was corrected I would pay virtually any amount of money for something like that!
Holy hell that came out awesome. Cant wait for vids and sounds. Amazing
man that body/string action is looooow, barely any pickup left for anchoring your thumb.
Who needs a finger ramp when the whole bass is a ramp hehehe
but agree with Holloway, love the design and aesthetics of it, but those lines should be dead perfect, rather than "organic"
Looks cool but the control cavity covers not sitting flush with the body is not that nice looking and would have been fairly simple to fix.
This forum can be hilarious sometimes, with the absolute bipolar extremes when it comes to things posted on here. From dogpiling on nearly impossible to catch flaws or "well this is probably messed up" based on a flaw seen elsewhere or on another build entirely, to "I'd pay anything for that if the flaws were fixed". Like, there's no rational in between?
Also, I get that no flaws > flaws and that it's supposed to be a futuristic biomechanical design, so precision is the assumption but I think it's sick pouring on the guy's build for the inlay work being done by hand instead of by CNC. Yeah it's less than absolute perfect but the notion any of that is done by hand is impressive and I'd personally take near perfect by someone's hand over perfect by a machine, in terms of appreciation for craftsmanship and value.
That's an absolute beauty. Have you received it yet?
Yeah, well that might be more me than anyone else. I just can't get passed the waviness of the lines. That being said, this is the internet, so I would not literally have paid any amount of money . It's more of my way of saying to Wizard that, after all the dissing I did, it actually came out looking really cool.
I really really stressed the importance of snake shit action to him all through out the build and especially as we've entered this QC portion of the build
Which is true I feel in away I really rushed him on the inlays too, I stated previously that was the absolute longest portion of the wait. I'm floored that it glows and from a performance aspect it will look "perfect" from a distance. If I could go back I'd of minimalized the inlays to markers only
