Cool Video. I was amazes how the color he sprayed buffed out! Very nice.
He‘s only using „real“ nitrocellulose lacquer without any „plastic“ ingredients.
Waiting for the new Atkins bracket...
But the narrow vintage handle is a nice alternative and works great with a 7/8 spring. I like the look of the Chet handle more, but the vintage handle is real 50‘s and much more authentic if I follow my concept
Can you see the touch of gold? Brass postscrews. It‘s all in the details!
Yesterday I built in the new Neckpickup from David Barfuss- finally I can play the middle position and it sounds great, but I still prefer the pickups solamente!
Know what? Honestly the best guitar I‘ve ever played. It is amazing!
A thing of beauty.
Wow! Very nice job. I'd own it in a heartbeat.
Very nice . . . so are you freakin' done yet?!
Yessir! Still seeking a case but the guitar is ready and man, it plays and sounds as good as it looks
Sweet colour. Reminds me of air force blue.
Faded sonic blue nitro.
Great guitar Stefan ! I'd be pleased to find a B16 too and do the same assembly, but it doesn't exist in LH...
By the way : did you find a suitable case for your TV Caster ? If you find one, let me know, because I'm thinking to built a LH Tele Bigsby B5 from a regular Tele (possibly a Squier Tele Classic Vibe LH), using rcboals Bigsby install...
Still searching but I‘ll let you know!
Concerning lefty Telebigs- contact TK Smith for a lefty vibrato and get a non-tension bar vibrato!
Thanks, Stefan !
Ordered this one today:
Lifton reissue. It say‘s made in Germany but it‘s made by TKL in Canada. The dealer told me it’s roughly 3,5“ deep so fingers crossed
What an Odyssey... but I guess it's worth it. An outstandig guitar, totally tailored to your needs, so of course the case has to be the best available, fits and looks.
OK, fine !
I hope it will fit your instrument : I'm still interested to know... Because I think it's not cheap ! Where did you find it ?
Thanks Stefan !
Surprisingly not, 120€, cheaper than G&G.
We all know TKL cases from our Gretsches so I guess quality will be fine. It‘s covered with real tweed, nice to have. So now I‘m hoping it will fit the TVcaster!
Stupidly I‘ve opened a new thread- mea culpa!
Here’s some noodlin‘ from my workroom:
Ooooooh. That’s a gorgeous piece of design and engineering
