Very nice work Eman
Cool stuff as always E-Man. What switch-tip are you running with on this one?
Well, he's going with the Fishman Fluence Greg Koch pickups so I'm guessing it'll be a tele knob.
Looks real cool so far. When he puts it up for sale I just might be interested.
What's the button between the pots do?
Since you ask...
1:22 min in. "Opens the Gates of Mordor" - got it.
The templates for the bridge install have arrived.
Only seven of them. What could go wrong?
@audept clamp alert!!
Looking good man!
Hey, be aware that a buddy installed some of those fish man pickups into a standard tele body, and he had to route a tiny bit out of the hot dog cavity. He said the battery pack sticks down tiny bit lower than the cavity. Just something to consider.
Real interested to see how this one turns out. Oh, and please make some clips or vid so we can hear it when it's done!
If I can play that giant neck
Great work, David!
Body is together nicely. Need to do the neck pocket next so I know exactly where to start all that fun routing.
Looking great, I can't wait to see the finished project. I have to give you a lot of credit for adding that bridge, they have always given me headaches to get the fitment correct. Thanks for sharing and continuing on.
Another good release here !
The body shape seems to be inspired by a Reverend model, like Charger or Buckshot, and I find it a nice shape too.
Coincidence : my pal Fred is currently building me a (Lefty) model which has the same body shape as the Charger, but in solidbody version with 2 matched/figured pieces of Alder for a natural finish. The scale is 24"3/4, the headstock is inspired by MusicMan 2+4 model. The hardware and electronics will be the same as my Fake Lefty Minerva Verde Danelectro as below :
The idea of that project arose in February 2016, the contours were designed in June 2016, the body and neck are now started... But Dead Roman's instrument will for sure be finished before mine, my pal Fred being very busy these times.
I discreetly follow your builts, as usual !
I quote myself from post #1
Thanks, don't give me credit yet, I'm perfectly capable of hosing the whole thing up!
So, in between waiting for paint to dry....
Got the neck pocket cut (made an MDF template first). Finished the body shaping, routed the round-over on the back, cut the sound hole and routed for the binding.
Sounds easy if you say it fast.
Neck bolted on. Starting the planning for the evertune fun and games.
