Getting some sanding done.
Yes I've used on an SG and like em.
Work as good as a bigsby and give that classic old SG look.
Best option imo if a hardtail bigsby won't work on the Corvette.
Or you could find an original Gibson Maestro tremolo - but they expensive
Pups - can I suggest either
- TVJ powertrons or
- TVJ Classic & Classic Plus combo
Is it just optical or are those really big and tall frets?
So the new B50 arrived.
I placed it on the body. Still don't like them lol. Noticed it rocked sideways.
Put it on a flat piece of metal to make sure it wasn't just the wood. Nope, there's a distinct hump in this thing
So over to the bandsaw
This is how much had to come off the bottom to make it flat.
What do you think? I'd like to cut down the left side more, just worried about stability
Kept finding casting voids as I filed.
I like it cut down it looks good
Yeah, the B50 i took off your Malcom project needed some sanding too. The B5 i bought needed nothing and works super smooth.
Slowly making progress here.
Extra long cavity because of the master volume I want to put in.
Wow, you've been busy while I was away on holiday in Portugal.
It looks really great but we've all come to expect that from you so I shouldn't be surprised!
One of the more fun parts
Got the tuners all set. On to the pick guard next.
Looking good man! I’d cut that left arm off the B5 and screw it down under the spring, that’s just me though. Where did you get your neck material? LMII?
I get all my wood out of Lombard IL. Got a buddy who works at Owl lumber. Decent prices compared to “Lurhier suppliers”.
Took your advice. Looks better.
This is really cool! Thanks for posting your progress.
It looks like another winner! The mini B50 is quite excellent.
Pick guard mock up.
Added a master volume over stock setup. Just a bunch of sanding now before applying finish.
