Unholy Union..... if there ever was a better goth or metal band name I am unaware of it!
Fretted a neck.
Then fitted it in this neck pocket.
And got some plating done.
Should I fear being unable to turn you off? I dig these unions. Bra, you got those unity gainz.
Turned some pens for a local retailer. These are olive wood, some sort of burl, bloodwood, African blackwood, and katalox. He wanted them finished with a matte finish so that the wood would be the focus.
He ordered a batch of 20 which I just finished, and he just ordered 20 more.
That is a beautiful guitar!
Thank you. Yes, I do think, as well, it's not gonna be too shabby.
Haha. This is just fun and games. Playing with these mash-ups and offering the bodies & pickguards as well as DIY kits and a few complete builds here and there is just one aspect of my bidneth. My 100% original design completely handmade guitars that I don't show much of here are my true passion. But you'll never be able to turn me off from guitars; please don't try. Many have and failed. It's all aboutz unity gains bro...
I wouldn't dream of it. All of us blokes are a touch twisted and love these stringed things. I'm so involved in building lately that my playing skill is taking a serious hit.
As I always say when I'm trying to unease a prospect, "if you turn me on, you won't turn me of."
It's time to make some big pushes on my original 5 string bass build. The Stingray is based off the pre-Ernie Ball 4 string pickup. Magnets are 3/8" x 1". I'll be shooting for a similar turn count as well. When EB released the Stingray 5 they put much more wire on the bobbins & shrunk the magnets to 5/8" tall. Using an Aguilar 3 band active pre amp. Really high hopes for major Slap-A-Da-Bass funk/thump action here.
It's really funny you say that. My playing had taken a serious hit lately too!!!
There are some mad magnets in that puppy!
20 magnets between 2 pickups!
Waiting to get some new sanding pads, I fixed the little chunk out of the neck pocket on the karri topped one.
I also got the top and the back chambered in the pine build, it's getting a karri neck and blackbutt fretboard. Also got the bolt soundholes cleaned as best as I could. Going with a bucker in the bridge and a hot rail type pickup in the neck, both will more than likely have trapeze tail pieces and definitely have roller bridges
Nice... do you have any concerns that pine will give way to the threads when tightening neck screws? I've never been brave enough for pine necks, unless it was laminated with a hardwood lining up with neck plate screws.
Had someone questioning how I glued the middle part of the body on the karri topped guitar, saying it will move but surely it would be solid enough????
Been using it for 5 years and haven't had a problem, these bodies will have the necks glued in, but my other guitars have been fine, if they do fail I could always plug with a harder wood and re drill
Maybe he was just nitpicking who knows, seemed like he wanted an argument by the way he said it
Oh and I'm not using pine for the neck, the one with the pinky type top is getting a maple strat neck with a rosewood fretboard and the pine body guitar is getting the same wood for the neck as the pinky top body.... hope that makes sense
