Wow! Wow! Wow! Wow! Wow!
I've been carving out the inside of the pegbox over the last few days. Normally I hog out most of it with a drill press and then just tidy up with the chisel, but... no drill press. I've intentionally left the walls a bit thick so that the roughness can be cleaned up easily.
I think that Cherry is far too soft to be used in a friction pegbox, so I'm going to install small Maple bushings in each hole to reinforce it and hopefully get smoother peg action. This is a very common repair for acoustics, and it's pretty straight forward. It will be slightly noticeable, but it's necessary I think. Hopefully I won't have any issues with maple pegs turning in a maple bushing.
The inside of the box is narrower than the last one. I tapered this box off over its length rather than leaving the edges parallel, which looks a lot better. Acoustics are done this way, and I'm not sure why I didn't do it on the first neck...
The working name for this project has been "Ariadne" (I need to keep my CAD files organized). That's a Greek name, and this really needs a Gaelic name, so here are a few options. The name and my logo will be laser engraved on a piece of maple veneer that will be inlaid on the bottom, directly covering the neck joint. What do you guys think?
Dubhchobhlaigh (10 points to anybody who can guess how to pronounce this )
Neamhain (NYAV in)
Ailill (AL yil)
Ainnir (AN nyir)
Is it Duv-cov-ley?
Maybe Duh-cob-lay? ...........................my Queen
can't wait to see this thing get finished. really amazing concept.
Something like that I'm not exactly sure myself... Points to both of you!!!
Why thank you sir.
I actually went and researched it for a bit.. All I know is greek is a lot more complicated then it needs to be.
Hey Bentley, did you accidentally put your update in the wrong thread?
Well, that works, because I was thinking of scrapping the violin neck altogether and going with a tele neck. You just beat me to it ;-)
Great work on the violin BTW. Very cool and original.
I love these co-operative builds. Kudos to both of you.
OH GOD. I came on here to check out the build... SO EMBARRASED.. oops.. sorry!
It's no problem at all.
Heck, it was dinner AND a show for free.................can't beat that
I laughed at myself for a solid three minutes. I was so tired last night, I just wanted to get it done.
Haha totally cracked up at this!
Very cool thread....hey who remove those photos from the telecaster build?
