Django Reinhardt was amazing!
Christmas is over. Time to get back to work.
Here's a shot of the fitted neck joint.
Here's a shot of the front. The provision for the Electrosocket jack is finished and the edges have been radiused.
And here's the back...showing the tummy contour and the rosewood heel cap. Still need to do a little more shaping on the heel and some final sanding before finishing.
wow!! this is really beautiful!!
Great source of inspiration, Mugsy!
Those old Supro guitars probably had the same inspiration.
Thanks, lefthand58 and Big Burly
You sent me googlin' for photos when you mentioned Supro. That's the one I found, too I drew from a few sources for inspiration--one of which was my wife. She suggested that the headstock design mimic the upper bout / cutaway.
Nice Build. I love the grain in the body... How are you going to finish it?
Makes me wish I had a shop, but not in a tiny 1-bedroom apartment. It's fun to watch, though.
These guitars are probably one of the best kept secrets . They certainly match or better far higher priced guitars coming out of the Fender Custom shop. I really really love Teles but why have an upper end tele when you can have one of these! (with a custom set of BG pups?). One day this will be my last guitar to complement my 2 Gretschs. Ok I only have one at the moment but plans for the purchase of the next one are firmly formulated.
Thank you, sir. Bryan chose yellow stain. I emailed a sample photo this afternoon to see how clear/opaque he wants to go on the finish. The stain by itself will leave streaks of other colors visible. The other option would be to do a translucent finish where we would tint the lacquer to make the color more uniform--similar to a Fender blonde.
Thanks, Mike. I'm glad you're enjoying it.
We're working hard to our name out there, and I'm humbled by your kind remarks. They are very much appreciated.
The pickups in this particular guitar will be TV Jones P90s. Mr. Jones' company has been very gracious toward us...and they also make very fine pickups They are my first choice, but we can provide pickups from other winders upon request.
I figured that I had the Filtertron sound covered with the TV Classics in my 6118, and Dynas in my Jet (will probably change to TV's when they come out), so this one is going to be my p90 guitar. Now that it's getting close, I'm really getting excited.
Made some progress on Byran's guitar this week.
The neck is finally glued in, and the fretboard has been properly radiused. The frets are installed, but still require beveling, leveling, etc. One coat of stain was applied, which will be sanded off prior to a second coat. I couldn't resist putting the hardware in place to see where it's headed.
Once the second coat of stain is applied, we'll move on to grain filler.
Man, that is looking sweet. And with all that coolness, it's got the V-neck, too, right?
Alas, no. I debated long and hard on neck profile and went with a med-full C shape.
Hangin' out in the spray booth...
We're spraying a couple coats of sealer before filling the grain.
poor guitar hanging like that...
Yeah, almost looks like a side of beef, but it's horizontal now
