Take me with you!
Hey Darren, any pics of a Superbird build? I did trawl this thread and hit google up to no avail, I have a stirring in my loins when I look at the CAD model of it!
I haven't started a build yet. I'll likely be prototyping it in the next couple of months.
Well if you decide to part with the proto I'll be waiting with my chequebook! I actually have a Jaden Rose proto as well, maybe I could mate them?
in the meantime I shall add my name to your waiting list as I'm pretty sure I'll be needing one of these in my life.
Interesting design, can't wait to see it in action.
The new site looks great, and renders like these are half the reason I want to see what a solid color Decibel would look like (like my order specs!).
Absolutely in love with these designs. So phresh and original.
Roll on build 193 (i think)
I've been busting my ass on getting the model for the Javelin R refined to my satisfaction. It's bloddy difficult modelling something with almost NO straight edges or surfaces on it whatsoever.
Here's a render for the Javelin R headless body shape. The body is scaled down by 10% so it looks a little more in proportion when you lop the headstock off, and there are slight modifications made to back edge contour to allow for ease of tuning.
Shown here as a 27" scale 8-string, which is being built for Fred.
dB13 just about wrapped up to head to its new owner:
The db13 turned out great!
Love that duvet like case! Very nice!
Is the hipshot bridge recessed?
Yes, the bridges are recessed, since the tops are curved.
Stuff currently on my bench:
Josh's insane cocobolo top glued up. This will be a Javelin R.
Alexander's lefty AMX. Alex opted for a pickguard, so he can swap out the neck humbucker for a single coil. This is why the neck pickup cavity is a unique shape.
Under 3.5 lbs. for a solid ash body is pretty decent!
Saverino's Javelin SL, which is the first "superleggera" to be built. Koa top on An incredibly lightweight Toona mahogany back.
Under 2.5 lbs. for the SL body! And there's no chambering.
The top on that first plank
^This. Also that's a really cool idea with the pickguard and neck pickup route!
It's nothing new, really. Many Strat-type guitars have a "swimming pool" route under the pickguard, so you can pretty much install whatever pickups you like just by swapping out the pickguard.
I, for one, appreciate the whole "taking out as little wood as possible approach."
