Wiring channels are all drilled. There will be nothing visible.
Yes, I’m going to finish it as is.
I had enough wood left over from various things for another guitar and since things are quiet right now I decided to have a go at it.
The body is...
I find pawlonia bodied guitars to be quite lively.
Not normally unless requested. I have to think that kind of conductive stick-on stuff may be more for ensuring a good ground between the pots than...
So I’m calling it done even though there’s something odd going on with the tone pots. I never use them anyway.
Including a thick leather strap, right at 10 :/
I may well do that too, but I want to start off with everything as new :)
Is it this one?
We play with the drums behind the shield but we also have side monitors giving us some ambient sound also. This is handy when the drummer falls...

I have to say that since I got some custom in-ear monitors, they are so good at filtering out ambient noise and you can hear the band mix at a...

I used them on the Bigsby style guitar I built. They do look cool and they work fine.
I'd like to have one of these.. only 19K at CME
