very cool guitars! i've seen them around before props to your build techniques and vision!
I don't know if anyone else has seen this, but it appears the website is back up. Last time I searched for it (a couple months... maybe closer to a year ago) I couldn't find it. Perhaps Dan is getting closer to the churning more guitars out... At least we can all hope he is!
Anyone else waiting for an Oni build? I need a coffee break because I'm super-stoked for the incoming instrument and need to vent with likeminded individuals!
Is it close to finished? I'm in queue also but mine will be a very long time still.
Nah, top is cut and glued, fretboard is cut and slotted but the rest remains. It's an e-scale seven. What's yours specced out with?
Nice. Mine is his double-cut super-strat sort of shape, non-e scale 8-string. I wanted a good spalt top for it but they were too hard to find, then a good ebony top but that was too hard to find as well. Then a bunch of random thoughts, but I think we now have a piece of quilt maple. May stain it dark and then do white or ivoroid binding, white pickups. I don't know if it's been started yet.
Hey, yeap rounding 3rd into home on my build. I am not too sure how much longer but can't be much more time. Caveat: it will look much better in high light situations, inclement weather forced Dan to take a few of these photos indoors.
Gorgeous as always
FUUUUCK that's nice. Is that a blackwood top and HS-cap?
That's the thing about Onis... just when I thought I was done, they pulled me back in. Almost every single instrument that's been put out by Dan has been an instant GAS-inducer. Some luthiers/manufacturers can make me go "neat", but there's no one that comes close to the visceral desire of ownership that these things conjure in me.
Figured Myrtle (North American I think, not the Tazmanian variety) top and HS cap, Australian Blackwood neck, and roasted ash back. No joke, about the instantaneous and deep seeded gas Dan can conjure up. I "needed" this one immediately after trying a straight scale build of his.
Good to see he's expanding his business with a new workshop.
New material popping up on Facebook.
i think that spalt is mountainjams build is im not mistaken, these guitars are glorious
I've never seen curved fanned frets before. Is it just a design choice or is there a benefit?
HOLY KITTENING KITTEN BATMAN
Great spalt or greatest spalt, c/c
basically it allows for a wider spread in scale length compared to Fan fret, while still making it playable. If you were to apply these scales to a regular fan, it would get ridiculous.
that's my understanding of why Oni would do it..
Edit: it also seems to allow a more gradual scale length adjustment on the high strings, and a more drastic change to scale length on the bass side.
Basically the fan is shifted in such a way that the extra scale length goes where it's most needed (bass strings) and fret angles are likewise minimized in areas where the player is likely to do a lot of chording or scalar/arpeggiated runs. You can thus minimize angles on a "typical"/conservative fan, or you can push the fan width without making it really feel wide with some clever adjustments.
This is mine. Love it. That is all.
