That heel really looks nice, really slick looking neck. Looks fast.
It's almost identical to a Fender C shape. It's very easy and comfortable to reach the 22nd fret - one of the things about CF is it's strong enough to open up a few new design considerations like thru-neck comfort.
How's the front finish going, Nick?
Good. Should have it together with some sound clips/videos in a week or two.
I'll make a carbon/kevlar cone too, and see how that changes the tone.
One thing that really impressed me (before I took it apart) was with a little bit of overdrive it'll sustain indefinitely on any note.
Lovely stuff Nick. Great build.
this. is. awesome.
cf is one of the sexiest looking materials there is.
+1. Hey Nick- you got any videos of this yet?
Still needs a sand and polish and final wiring. I'll get onto it in the next week or two . Kinda busy with another guitar at the moment.
So where's THAT thread?
If I made a thread for every guitar, I'd not have time to make guitars!
So any new pics of this? I just plowed through this thread. What a project! I know I'm late to the dance, but I have a Q about the binding: Was the binding ledge built into the body or the soundboard? Do you have any pics of gluing and trimming the soundboard?
Also, have you tried this construction with an accoustic guitar? If so, any pics?
Oh man - I've been swamped with other build stuff lately! Will get it on the rack and recorded. I miss not having it to play.
This is the single most fascinating build thread I have ever seen.
Way cool!!!!!!!!!!!! But to difficult for an idiot like me!
Since you've done so much work with carbon fiber, I'm curious to get your thoughts on an idea.
Would reshaping a Moses carbon-fiber headstock with a table router and template be similar to working with a traditional wood neck?
As long as the milled portion was recoated with resin, would you anticipate this causing any problems?
I'm not sure how the Moses necks are constructed. If the necks are hollow then it would be an issue.
You know, I never really thought about them being hollow until I remembered this thread:
From the Moses website:
3) Tuning key installation:
d) Moses neck headstocks have an airy low density filler as part of their
composition. You may see voids along on the inside walls of the tuner
holes. This is part of the manufacturing process and not a defect.
A reshape might not work on a "standard" headstock, but it looks like they make paddleheads, too.
You not in for the challenge this year Nick?
I'm enjoying watching.
