Great job eh - Showed my daughter your headstock inlay, and she loved it.
Hey, did that fox ever catch the mouse, or did the mouse get away?
Wow. Umm, I don't know where to start with replying, but THANK YOU, EVERYONE!
-There was a little bit of a grounding buzz going on, I have no idea why... everything seemed solidly grounded in it. It wasn't a loud buzz and it didn't really show up in the recordings, but it'd be nice if it wasn't there at all.
-Sorry there wasn't more guitar playing in the video; just trying to keep it short and sweet.
-I like monkeys, probably not drunken ones though.
-I used to have a full stack, but since I'm not playing in a band anymore, I only kept the amp head (the cabs were cheap-o's and I sold them to buy bass gear with the thought of buying better cabs if I ever played guitar in a band again). I don't really have any need for an amp if I'm not playing shows or going to a band practice. I prefer playing unplugged. If I ever do feel the need for an amp though, I'd love to make my own and would definitely be learning some tricks from the Shock Brothers section! I would definitely want to make one with a natural finish and nice looking wood. My friends that helped me with the video have actually talked to me about making cabs with them a lot. It might happen some day, if it does, I'm sure I'll start a thread for it.
-The mouse is in a perpetual state of panic and was neither caught nor has he escaped from the fox. Schrodinger's... mouse.
-I think I might start with fixing up the finish tomorrow. I wasn't really sure if I was going to or not before, but after burning the finish around one of the ferrules and finding a few sand throughs... I think it will bother me if I don't. What's the best way to take out the ferrules?
-Everyone here is awesome for sharing knowledge and cool ideas and tricks. It's really fun to watch everyone's threads in and out of the challenge.
Excellent job on the guitar. Most impressed.
Love the headstock inlay!
(the rest ain't too shabby either...)
And there's the name for this beauty - "Schroedinger's mouse".
Your guitar sounds beautiful, Lisa, and the inlay work is gorgeous!
Fantatsic job Lisa, and it sounds very good also.
Oh, yeah! (Or it's a good band name!)
Wow! I havent been able to keep up with the build threads but Lisa your build is elagant beyond words. Sounds as good as it looks too.
Geez, I show up a little late and there are three pages of compliments.
What more can I say? I think everyone pretty much covered it. Fantastic build Lisa.
Thank you, guys!
I wish I would have thought of it before I made the video! That would have been perfect.
I thought you weren't going to leave any more compliments here?
Well, I joined in to see if it was possible for me to finish a guitar in 8 weeks and I did it! I see no possible way that I would be able to do it with a full time job, a family, etc, so I'm amazed by the fact that everyone else was able to get there's done in this amount of time. Congrats to everyone! Also congrats to the people who dropped out in order to spend time making a better guitar!
I'm not sure who to vote for yet! I mean, the other classes are easier because there's not as many people, but I'm not sure how to narrow down my votes in the open class to just 3.
Lisa i knew when you posted your first wood pics this would be a nice looking guitar , but WOW i mean really WOW! You out did your self in every way , I love everything about this guitar and it sounds amazing too! I'm blown away, Congrats!
Yeah, well I'm a sucker for a pretty guitar.
I know what you mean - It's going to be tough.
Yeah, for real.
I think I'm going to copy some other people and try to get a photo collage put together. Hang on.
Also, guys, I've been sitting here going through threads for probably over an hour and every time I think I'm caught up, I click refresh and there's like 10 new updates. I can't keep up!
Tremendously good looking and inventive instrument!
you did a great job on everything from the dye on the fretboard to the inlay to the body laminations.
Just freakin' great!
really nice wood, awesome job
