It's ok, I know that you CAN do an a-hole. I just don't think you SHOULD.
i was just about to chime in that I only like traditional f-holes (think Gretsch 6120) until I started scrolling down. Very cool stuff.
Thanks, glad you like it. I cut it after the top was glued, no problem. The pickguard in the photo is a mock-up, the real one is to the side, the blue thing, in 1/8” clear acrylic, which will be painted metallic silver. The upper switch is the pickup selector, only a volume and ‘mud’ switch on the pickguard.
Seeing this is my take on Tele-meets-Gretsch Duo Jet, I thought the Roger Rossmeisl thinline design could use some Rickenbacher-meets-Gretch cat’s eye design nods.
One of my faves, from Zachary in The Great White North somewhere.
Here's another one, inspired by Rickenbacker.
Here's one a friend made using the same template, with less sharp corners. He also considered flipping the template upside down.
The first one looks like a penguin doing a swan dive. Not that there's anything wrong with that, it's just what I first saw...
Or something like this:
Have been working on this idea. Sort of snake/dragon/treble clef thingy.
May require a support within the cavity to strengthen however. I have done that before. Doesnt show.
The Frits' Bros. went Ricky cat's eye on the Roy Buchanan thinlines:
I came up with this for my latest build. Started off by googling a range of designs and then playing around in Illustrator until I came up with something that might be suitable - a bit like a gum leaf crossed with a snow pea... A bit of final sanding to be done but almost there.
Some awesome stuff in here. One of the more unique ones I've seen was the one Samantha Fish has on her custom Delaney...
So shall we call it the "Gumpy" hole??? Actually looks simple and elegant, I like it!
Wait.....you mean there's a guitar in that picture?
I have that exact guitar barely used at $250 and it's a very sharp S/H guitar.... good pickups and well-made. The brand name is equated to crummy SamAsh acoustics. but some of the Robellis are pretty good guitars
Just make three different size holes in it. Larger to smaller. Kinda like the Ovation hole thing but inline and arcing.
Thanks for all the inspiration guys!!! So I went for the traditional... I just couldn't see any other shape on there.
Old growth cherry wood. Some flame. Pine back that's been burned and milk painted, then sanded.
I'm in love with this guitar!
Most tasteful IMHO.
Thanks! Going to wrap this up soon, solid color on the maple top, stain on the mahogany back.
Looks very traditional..... yet very different. Very nice!!!
That maple is pretty nice. Sure you want to opaque over it?
