I'm so excited right now...
Sorry Gil, I drove from Boston yesterday, I'm a little behind the curve...
The freezer/heater trick is awesome. Like others here, I've used it on metals before, but never thought of using it for wood. That's good stuff right there.
Pin routers are great aren't they?
Exemplary work Gil.
Wow what a fantastic way to start the Easter break - a new thread from Gill!
Interesting that you went with the wider waist area, I strapped on a LP after reading that and thought ..."he's right". This puts the shape more in the Gretsch Firebird or Guild Aristocrat ballpark. Anyway thanks for sharing all this as it's very inspirational - and for giving me a new mental image whenever I hear the term "a body in the freezer"
Yep...looking forward to this build.
BTW Gil, here are your missing photos
Wow, this is more exciting than Homeland ....and just as groundbreaking!
I will enjoy watching this come together. I learned a lot from your previous builds and I know I will with this one.
Awesome, Gil. Always knew your original designs would be stunning.
Will the paulownia be resilient enough for the neck joint? I would have been cautious and kept a "neck block" of mahogany.
Awesome stuff Gil. I'm along for the ride!
The body shape is very cool.
I remember seeing an article online where the custom shop built a Tele like that. From what I remember it was just to reduce weight and I think it was built for Justin Norvell who was the vice pres. of marketing for Fender.
Happy Pesach, Gil. Thank you for sharing all of the innovative techniques. I am subscribed, and positive this one will be every bit as fine an instrument as all of your previous builds.
Holy cow! I was just thinking today about Preeb's fantastic and inspirational threads, and when I come here to see what he's been up to or to re-read the classics, I find this. Not reverse engineering a classic, but a Gil Yaron original!
I'm so stoked to see how this comes out, I appreciate the classic designs, but there's always something about them that doesn't appeal to me. It's great to see you step out and put your own spin on things. I'm already amazed at the inegenuity of this design.
I really like that headstock. It reminds me of the headstock on a Gretsch White Falcon.
Why the trussrod cover? I thought you were going heel adjust?
Beauty so far Gil. I wish you well deserved success.
Set Neck - kind of difficult to heel adjust?
Sorry - I did not catch the body end truss rod adjustment - I just ass-u-me-d it was set neck - headstock adjust. I still don't see how Gil is going to adjust from the body end easily. I guess truth will eventually be told.
Maybe from the back!
