    That's a micro-tone fret (I think). It allows for an "in-between" note.

    Basically correct. Also, Matt's guitar isn't going to have those, he just posted the picture of Bostjan's guitar as an example of the carbon fiber design ;)

    Yes.

    Definitely correct! :lol: No microtonal frets for me, the fan will be enough to wrap my brain and hands around! :rofl: The overall design will be similar except no microtonal fret on mine but mine WILL have a neck pickup whereas Bostjan's did not. :)

    Damnnnnnn. That is looking sweet. Carbon fiber is awesome :yesway:

    I love Oni's body shapes.

    Oh man - I know I say the same thing in every Oni thread, but that body shape is so elegant and tasteful. Beautiful aesthetic design.

    Is that you're own CNC machine Dan? If so that's a very exciting development :metal:

    You people are too nice :wub:

    Sure is Leo. It's a bit of a steep learning curve and a lot of work doing the table and jigs but it's worth every cent and every minute. I've just been ranting to Matt about it so he's probably sick of hearing about it :lol: CNC makes certain things possible that just simply can't be done by hand. Perfect compound radius boards, closed end fret slots (no binding), all sorts of jigs and handy little doodads, and then there's the hardware side of things :)

    lookin good.

    technically it wouldnt be that hard to cover your own guitar in carbon. If you have the right experience. I do some occasional fiberglass work, and carbon is pretty much the same concept you just have to be a little more careful because flaws are more easily shown.

    Fantastic! You hinted before that you were up to something that would help your production capacity and I wondered if it would be a CNC machine.

    I've spent far too many late nights trawling the internet for CNC mills and drooling at the various pics and specs. I haven't seen any that I could actually afford right now, though hopefully in the future I will.

    Looks like you've got a good size moving-gantry type machine. Any more info on it would sure be appreciated - I'm hoping to find a decent CNC system for under $10 000 CDN.

    The precision of the fretboard slots and position marker routes is impressive. I assume you're just going to fill those little oval & circle shapes with something whiteish/light colored?

    And the integrated binding effect you're getting from the fret slots not going all the way to the edge of the fretboard is very classy :agreed:


    Add me to the list of people who envy you Matt :lol:

    I always love seeing updates on any and all Oni guitars. They truly have some of the best designs on the planet, in my opinion. Hopefully the CNC will make the build process easier and quicker for you Dan and that will allow many more Oni guitars to enter this world. :)

    Yep the ovals and circles will be filled, I haven't decided on exactly what with yet. Gotta live on the edge.

    Are you around on IM or Skype? I'd email but it'd be after I finish the business emails so I'll probably never get to it, as I'm sure you've noticed by now :lol: You can get something happening for under $10k ;)
