I really like the original headstock-layout more. It is more "gretschy" to my eyes.
Okay E man, it's Saturday so i expect some progress!
However, today's priorities are:
Begin nitro clear on bass body.
Begin nitro clear over the "Fender" decal on the Paisley project.
Wire up P-Bass pickguard.
Finish sanding rosewood fretless neck for P bass.
Hope that replacement module for Evertune arrives so I can finish up that tele project and get it shipped overseas.
Then, if there's time, begin outline for Corvette project.
I also have a nice adler blank for another project using the ebony board neck I made for the Tele originally but based on suggestions from @TSims1
And then after lunch.....
Oh, my. Sounds like a lot of work to do on a weekend.
Hah, sounds like a job.
As well as a few trems, I've got a megatron and a couple of powertrons (I think) knocking around, in case you're interested.
Also watches, Iphones, DVD of latest movies....anything you want, my friend, anything you want.
Got as far as this self-explanatory stage!
Also nice ebony board and half moon thumbnails.
Quickie body shaping.
OK, I've obtained a B50 for this, I'm going to cut it down and use a Towner in the original 6135 position and see how that goes.
Man, my B5 i put on my DeArmond works great. Did i just get a good one or what? Everybody seems to dog the tension bars but they never give me problems. I like the Towner setup and am gonna use it to put a B6 on my Sheraton but it already has a stoptail.
It's mainly the aesthetics I don't like on those.
I will say that when i install the B5/50's i set them back a good bit from the bridge so's to get a good break angle, i see alot that are right up on the bridge.
Have you looked at the TK Smith vibrato? Expensive but it sure is pretty.
Glad that you decided to leave the headstock-shape as it was originally intended.
I'm curious how you went about getting the thumbnail inlays in. I've been mulling it over for when I'm going to try it. I'm thinking of an mdf template and router.
Basically all I do is hold the inlay in place with one finger and then draw around it with a pen (it showed up best on the ebony) then I route it out freehand with the dremel and the stew-mac dremel router base. I squish them in with color-matched epoxy and then sand the radius. Came out pretty good, the smallest one ended up a little cocked but that's my fault for not seeing it.
