That’s what I thought too. Really nice playing as well.
Just finished reading this magnificent thread again Freeman, outstanding tutorial, thanks so much for taking the time, we all appreciate it.
Great stuff. You, Sir are quite the craftsman.
Thank you. One of the main reasons for posting this and the chambered tele threads were to show what is possible by a relatively inexperience builder with a really minimum shop. I consider myself about half way between a novice and a real luthier so I am hoping that others can kind of relate to what I'm doing. Its kind of ironic, I just came in from my garage/shop which is currently heated by a 1600 watt space heater and a little portable propane heater - my power is so limited I have to turn the space heater off if I start my compressor. Its too cold to be trying to bind an acoustic, but thats what I'm doing.
Maybe I can inspire someone who wants to build a guitar, doesn't have a bazillion dollars worth of planers and sanders and stuff, and doesn't have the skill set that some of our forumites have. So, my point, and I'm pretty serious about this, is that if I can do it, you can too.
I'd kill for some cold!!!! I'm working outside building a roof extension to the "trailer park" where I keep my boat rubbish trailer and camper trailer. Unfortunately the roof is about 4' short of covering the boat nose and as a result it gets water in it when it rains. My last tarpaulin just rotted away so I decided to make a wood and colourbond roof section that lifts and is fitted with adjustable legs on both sides that set the roof angle.
It is about 34 degrees C in the house and about 40C outside in the sun, feels like 50% humidity Can't wait until it's done and I can have a cold shower. Guess if I was over where you are, I'd be complaining about that too!
This pretty much sums up how I’ve been fumbling around for the last two years.
Awsome build & illustration.
I'm a dabbler luthier, violin & guitar.
Might build a LP style one day. I'll keep this post as a favorite.
