    Hey Folks,
    I am noticing that this thread has something like 8885 views! I am curious if anyone has used this thread to help build their own partscaster? If so, I would love to hear about it...perhaps see pictures or links to your build if you are sharing it on the forum...I would also love to hear what people think about my build, so feel free to comment on this thread. So far this guitar has done me right, and has become my main axe. I want to post a video demo of this guitar...any suggestions on the best way of going about that...getting the best sound, etc... Anyhow, just thought I would throw that out there... Thanks for looking!!

    Good job there:D, and the Bennet decals are in my experience the best you can get.
    Next thing for you is to spec a bare body and neck and spray them up in nitro- most satisfying:p

    Short Video Demo

    Here is a very short video of this guitar. I used a point and shoot Canon camera to record this video, so the overall sound quality isn't too great. I thought about using my recording equipment, but that would have taken a while to set up, so that might be a goal for the future. In this video I just demo the pickups clean and with a bit of gain from the amp (no effects except reverb from the amp). This video is sort of a test to figure out the process of creating a video, uploading it to YouTube, etc.. So if you have any suggestions on how to make it better let me know because I plan on making another one soon, and I know this can be better, if not longer. Please give feedback. Cheers! :lol:

    It says this video is private, I'm afraid.

    Nice balance on the pickups! Yeah! Shoot a longer one!
    The powershot doesn't sound bad....I have to do the same thing ( shoot a video on an
    SLR camera and record sound with proper mics into my midi interface and edit the two together )

    I wish I would've seen your thread before I mounted my neck pickup...I have to re-do it..I was in a hurry and botched it...

    Thanks for the feedback, I am going to try recording with interface and camera, we'll see if I can get them to match up...

    When I built mine I couldn't find much on the forum on how to install the neck pickup, and I was afraid that I was going to blow it... I got lucky :lol: Good luck to you, it shouldn't be a too hard a fix.
