Little update for today: got the fretboard trimmed and binding scraped on the ash/walnut guitar.
A lot of routing done today, this guitar is 4.6lb as it sits right now.
God dammit I miss the like button. Great work!
A bit of work on the neck:
It still needs some blending in the heel and volute transition areas and overall scraping/refinement, but it feels nice so far.
A lot of little things today, most weren't really picture material.
However, I did bookmatch some wenge for the upcoming 8 string:
looks like it has a natural fade/burst from one end to the other.
what direction is the guitar going? don't think you could go wrong either way.
Yeah, it's a pretty cool piece, I like the little mountain shape in the middle. I'm leaning toward keeping more of the tighter dark grain, but still having trouble deciding. I'll take a pic and post it when I finally figure it out
Forgive my lo res image and slap dash outlining/Perspective correction, but I think it would look amazing as below (providing this is the body shape it is used for):
No worries dude! That's pretty much exactly what I'm gonna do
Hardware has arrived for the ash/walnut six string:
Installed Jescar 58118SS fretwire:
Made a matching walnut backplate and started the final sanding process:
Started body prep for the multi 8 and chose a top orientation:
At this point in the ash/walnut build I'm just sanding a lot, so there's not really much to photograph. Here's a few little things I can show:
I've gone and installed machine screw inserts for the pickup mounting points, made a walnut backplate from the remainder of top material, and painted the control cavity with shielding paint.
I'm waiting on paint and decals for the ash/walnut 6, so I've been doing a bit of work on the maple 7 and retro V.
Starting another V!
Here's the first day's batch of pics, just a bunch of cutting, sanding and routing.:
Thanks for taking a look!
Another 6 string body ready to be carved:
im diggin those v's, is there a huge difference in price between a bolt-on and neck-thru?
Hey, thank you! Nope, no significant price difference. PM me and we can chat if you'd like
A bit of an update on the surf green Pulsar:
So excited for this one!
Thanks bud, me too!
I did some more paint testing today....
Binding scraped, pickguard made, neck thickness/back taper is set.
