Hey everyone, thought I would go ahead and start a new thread for my second project. The first one has been put on hold indefinitely (artist has been busy) so I decided to start work on a new guitar. This one is pretty similar to the first but with some minor changes to the body shape (particularly the neck pocket) and different specs. I'll be utilizing headless hardware, a 24 fret neck, and going with a dual pickup configuration rather than single. Quick Spec List: BTB body shape Licensed by KD Patent headless hardware Dragonfire screamer humbuckers 24 fret Amazon neck (surprisingly nice for what I paid, although the frets probably aren't all that level). This will be a pretty picture-heavy thread, I've been taking greater care to document the process than last time. Here is the 2x10 Home Depot pine board I picked up for the body blank: Pieces chosen and lined up: Template placed over it to get an idea of the wood grain on the body: Boards ripped and joined: Body cut out and edges routed: Same as last time, did a roundover on the back only: Neck pocket routed. Routed to 5/8" the first time not realizing that the neck heel is thicker than a standard fender by about 1/8" so I had to go back and route it deeper. Close up of the headless bridge I'm using. Kind of a neat little thing, got it off Amazon. It's an interesting mechanism, sort of like a regular guitar tuner but tiny and built into the component. Can't say how well it works but it seems to be of decent quality. Progress so far: The upper fret access on this design still isn't all that great, so I was thinking of doing a small bevel on the lower horn just to clear that sharp corner. Any thoughts on the shape of this sketch? I consulted with the artist and she thinks it should have "longer and swooping lines" for a better aesthetic. This is all I've done so far, next step will be getting the bridge installed then routing the pickup and control cavities. Any and all feedback is welcome, and if there is a problem with the pictures let me know. I just started using a different image hosting site and you guys know how finicky they can be.
