I sure hope it works out alright for you this time. This is an awesome thread. Keep it coming.
Is your control rout deep enough now?
So... any more updates on this?
Mommy... my eyes hurt!
I tink yo should call it an IKEACASTER
It's still sitting in my body rack.Maybe some day
Patent before Fender sees it - It could be the next new Fad....
Geez They have done about everything else.....
I'm late to this thread.
As the owner and overseer of a recent large home-improvement project, I love the OSB, but I think the burst was a step in the wrong direction. Too traditional. It should have been that pour-on epoxy stuff they use for hatch-cover furniture, in basic "clear".
And for the pickguard? Asphalt roofing shingle. You'll need to wear a leather work glove to play it of course.
This will probably get me on a hit list somewhere , but , what are you planning for a neck ?
I reject your neck on principal !
I think PVC pipe (complete with the numbering visible) would make for awesome binding on that.
You can get the black duct (duck) tape and use that as a binding, that would be sweet.
my other idea is stick with the pick guard you have or go with a hardened flat piece of leather.
someone mentioned branding it which I love, if you don't brand the body then put the thin layer of OSB on the head and brand that with a name or initial.
last series of ideas...................Go with the torched binding and a bit of the torched burst (it really adds something to the look) and see if you can get the metal pieces finished with a black oxide finish to give that made out of iron look, you can even use stovepipe black and toss them on the Bar-b-Que or in the oven on broil to bake it in so it does not wipe of.
That is looking great. I like the traditional blackguard look on the very non-traditional body. I wouldn't change a thing.
Sorry about the bump, but I just read ALL the way through this amazing old (before my time) thread, and I'm consumed by the question: how did it SOUND?
I just think it needs a gig bag made from a blue tarp.
And maybe a strap from that webbing they use for lawn furniture.
When youre not playing it you can use it as a routing template.
I just found this thread and followed it up to here...
I feel like I was just left with the biggest cliffhanger ever...
I NEED to know what happened to this project!!!
