LOLOLOL.... you just made my morning Sir..
Gill that sounds awesome, I was only able to listen a third of the way through, but you've got my thumbs up.
I love the neck P'up, you have dialled in it right there! (Or is it your mate's playing?)
Bridge is awesome, lots of spunk, and spank, it's all T, but without anything harsh or shrill.
And it looks good too!
It's my buddy Chitah playing (his first name is my last: Yaron).
Listen to the rest.. there's a Sponge Bob Square Pants style melody at around 03:55 (-;
I'm trying for the life of me to remember what he was playing at 6.09 mins.
Of course, I guess I'm getting too used to watch videos where the tone is mostly shaped after the influence of the amp. As I said, the clarity is there and I'm sure it can be spiced to taste.
You know, I've been using this old early 80's JCM800 combo for testing guitars and PU's for many years and couldn't find (or get used to) any other amp for that reason. It sounds very flat and true and when something sounds good through it I know it will sound good on most amps. Just like a great set of studio monitors. Still has the original power tubes .. LOL
First production Bolt-S.
Oval tuners, 3 bolt neck, rounder body curves.
This particular one has standard P90's (non AirGap) with RWRP middle for complete humbucking silence in positions 2,4.
Mazl Tof !
Looks great! I like the contours very much.
What happened to the ferrule hiding for the neck's bolts?
Thanks. The small diameter holes of the wooden inserts hiding the larger ferrules looked great but I'm afraid they can get easily cracked if someone tries to remove the neck without being extra careful with the screwdriver...
Also, 3 smaller metal ferrules are cleaner looking than the 4 large ones on the proto... So it was the best way to go all-around.
Outstanding Gil! Very impressive.
he is the master.. when i win the lottery ill be making a trip hope everything is alright on your end gil. until then i will drool over his master pieces.. maybe ill get lucky and see one in person one day id settle for that.
that birdeyes neck is fantastic.
Bolt-T with a set of classic Broadcaster PU's
Absolutely beautiful! A modern classic if there ever was one.
Gil, what are the specs on that big 65° router bit? I've been looking for something exactly like it! Great build as usual!
Beautiful! Gil, how hard / dense is the birds-eye maple on that Bolt-T?
What's a modern classic?
A new instrument that looks old, or a new instrument that will look good in the future?
It's a simple 2.5" diameter bit.
Make sure to get a quality bit that will not wobble and use a strong router.
Very hard and dry maple for necks.
Been doing a lot of Bolts in the classic Ash/maple combination lately. but here's a different one, this time in featherweight Mahogany with BRRW board and clay dots. Also note the 2 knob configuration (MVMT) and Jumbo frets.
I'll try to make a video clip when it's done.
