in progress I’m going to use some bluesy type fender type pickups from planet tone pickups
Interesting. I'll look forward to seeing the finish product.
Nice! Is that a round sound hole?
Will there be enough space for two pick ups, a bridge and the tail piece?
I hope it’s close
I think it’s a great combination.
Do you build these for yourself? Or do you sell them off?
Really very nice work . . .
I'm totally impressed with the creativeness,
except personally I would lose that tailpiece, but that is jus' me.
fwiw, the thicker bass E string will have to have a very steep angle in the tiny afterlength off the saddle IF it even all fits. The treble E is about the same angle but with the thin unwound string it becomes a little less of a snag friction point, imho - as I understand it all.
Ibanez has a "tailpiece cover" of a tonewood or other material that fits over the actual string anchoring metal tailpiece - reminiscent of the wood tailpieces typical of many violins. It is still fairly long but doesn't put the bass E wound string at a steep angle, unless strung reverse-lefty.
Yes brianr ! Another "Funky" guitar...
I imagine a LH one in Sparkle Tangerine or Turquoise, with a Bigsby...
Usually for myself but always open to high crazy offers
So the Cadillac tailpiece is to big for this guitar luckily I made one custom out of brass that will work so I put the Cadillac tailpiece on eBay
One of these days I need to build a guitar because I certainly have more than the needed tools. Heck, I have a CNC router.
How do you go about shaping your necks? That's where I'm not confident I could do a good job.
I don’t see how getting high would help with an offer , but would consider it if needed. .
My necks I do probably the way nobody else does
Tung oil for the first time on the whole guitar 1st coat, hell i might do 5? 20?
Lookin good brother
I adore the fact that you stick to a formula that is totally your own. Keep up your good work, Brian.
Funny, that exact method has crossed my mind considering I have the exact same oscillating belt sander. I love the thing.
