It's time for a new Build Thread... I'll go a little different way on this one and will only use domestic Woods for this build. Maybe some of you allready reallized: there are some new woods listed by CITES this year: Dalbergia conchinchinensis (Rosewood / Thailand) Dalbergia retusa (Cocobolo) Dalbergia granadillo (african Blackwood) Dalbergia stevensonii (Rosewood / Honduras) Dalbergia spp. (Rosewood / Madagascar) Diospyros spp. (Ebony / Madagascar) I have allways wanted to try local woods in a guitar and this gave me the final push. Here are the specs: Body: Cherrywood, chambered Top: Hardash or apple tree wood, not shure yet. Neck: 7 Piece, made from apple tree wood, maple veneers and plum tree wood Fretboard: plum tree wood. Pickups: Lace Alumitone & Deathbucker Hardware: ABM Singlestring Headless Tuners, ETS Headpiece Scale length: 26,125" Apple and plum tree wood are some of our most rigid domestic woods. They were used for gear wheels and large wine presses until industralization started. Because some of you might ask: Yes, I asked Ola and he allowed me to use his design. I would have loved to use his Hardware but it's almost twice the price of the combination mentioned above. On to the pictures.... no CNC here, thats why I need a routing template: wood for the body and fretboard: some clamping action: the result: this will pop under oil.... one of the possible tops: What do you think?
