Not witty when I'm hungry and in a hurry
Woah.. I don't think a lot of people were quite aware of that!
When you registered on the forum you had to click on a little box where it says you have read and understand all the rules. So everyone should know.
Well, I feel like a dumba$$. I did not know that rule - and I should have. Fortunately, or unfortunately, I don't have any commissions, but I know quite a few of the threads I follow are being built for other people.
Thanks for bringing this up. I hope everyone will see this and proceed appropriately. It seems to me even if you are building a commission and you don't mention that, you should be OK.
I'm not sure what the intent of the administrators would be here, other than to keep you from promoting your business and getting free advertising. Which is fine. If you're operating a business advertising should be figured into your budget.
On the other hand, it is inspiring to see folks that build for a hobby get a commission once in a while. Kind of gives you the feeling one day you might be able to sell one
The rules are the rules. This is a great forum. A lot of that has to do with the way they set it up and the rules we all have to follow.
Yeah. By the time I started getting commissions, it had been a long time since I read the rules, so it never entered my mind. Paul let me know that one of my threads was severely edited while another was completely removed, which I understand. No hard feelings on my part. Rules is Rules.
Well things have been a bit slow around here lately but I have managed to get a bit of work done on the SG.
Smithwicks? Could you not get Guinness?
I'm saving the Guinness for tomorrow. ;o)
Interesting way of doing that headstock angle.... Is there another thread somewhere or tutorial on how that's done?
Is the SG going to be a solid finish or transparent? That look like a scarfed neck joint, isn't it?
This link is for another thread of mine that shows how I make my scarf joint.
As far as the finish goes, I won't be doing that part of the build. This is a collabrative effort and I'm only doing the woodworking component. I don't know what has been decided about the finish.
St Patrick's Day in my house..
If you're in the neighbourhood John, drop by...and leave that can of Guinness at home...
Ahhh, I love traditional refreshments . I'm hoping to get "across the big pond" in the next year or so...............Ireland will be a stop
Just wondering John, I know your building other things ATM, but I just got restarted on my Longhorn and thought of you. I was wondering, when you do get around to it, what kind of construction method are you going with? I did a solid-body for many reasons, the long heavy neck of a Bass VI being one. I understand if your going traditional, but it occurred to me with that wood stash you have, nobody on the planet could make a better looking solid body of it than you . I was just curious
Those two bottles will be well gone Dave, but do drop in...FB friend request sent.
Thanks... when I saw that Bushmills I almost bought a plane ticket...
Not sure yet Dave. I've built a few Dano style guitars over the years... some have been solid and some have been closer to actually Dano construction. I like both ways for different reasons. I'll have to mull it over a bit, but in all likelyhood I will go solid... or maybe slightly chambered.
The SG is looking more like a guitar every day... even though it's been too cold to spend much time out in the shop. That cold concrete floor sure plays havoc on the feet and knees.
