I don't have a problem with the way I clamp, I like going old school every time
Yeah, nowt wrong with G clamps, but I remember how long it took me to get to 30 clamps - it's a lot of money for someone just starting out!
I like this way of clamping. you still need some other clamps if you're doing bigger bodies like an explorer but it's pretty efficient.
I just park my car on it.
Did I miss it? What's the inlay material?
I've been tempted to some kind of pattern routing and then fill it with InLace.
Holy hell, I haven't been on SSO for almost 2 years and you guys are still saying that? My legacy lives on!
Btw.... skeels likes this.
I'm so excited... my guitar is almost finished!
It’s not done yet?! I’m kind of shocked...
Well it kind of goes like this...I went out to buy some Danish Oil and ended up going down the devils arse. True story, I've been there 2 days now.
I really hope that isn't Influenza A you're talking about. It's been hell this year.
Rather than thinking the worst, perhaps that's the name of your local pub...
Out of the devils arse now. It's an ancient underground cave system, we did the first section by cave boat and liked it so much that we stopped in the Derbyshire peak district over night and did the rest of the caves the day after. I picked up some prehistoric shark teeth (in the pic below)

Please tell me those teeth are going in somewhere.
Yes they are. I've just finished the top set, I'm removing my lower teeth tonight so they should be in later, I'll post a NTD.

I had one of those for a while but as my space and funds were limited I decided to let it go to get a USA Jackson. The fact that one of the posts had a hairline crack that was quite a bit down the wood didn't really help me deciding it was a keeper.
It played great though and if I had any more woodwork experience I would have fixed and kept it. As it was I put some wood glue to stabilise it and sold it for a loss as I was upfront about the issue. It was quite a bright guitar and I installed a Dimebucker that did help with taming the single volume and all that alder and maple brightness. It had so much mids the scooped character ot the Dimebucker balanced it out.
EDIT: Having said that I kind of keep my eye open in case one of these pop up again for a reasonable price.
"Busy travelling with my severely injured hand, but still accomplished more guitar building today than any of you"
But seriously, you're amazing. I don't know if you realize how much of an inspiration you are. It's humbling and exciting to watch your build threads.
Is it a really thin inlay, or an "onlay"?
Many thanks to you Sir Wade
Its an inlay about 1.5 mm thick.
