Needs a Tort JR guard.
I actually went for black trapezoid style fret markers - can’t you tell
Cheers. Ha yeah, I’ll drop Anish Kapoor an email, I’ll see if he can spare a couple of litres - I wonder if he supplies it as nitro in rattlecans
Yeh there is a tone and volume knob recessed in the side near the top bout. I’ve got a few more bits to fine tune then I’ll get some more pics up
Ha, I hope you haven’t suffered any concussion. No obvious knobs, they’re hidden away on the top side...
Thanks for the kind words. The fretboard is indeed ebony, the headstock is an 0.6mm ebony veneer too - but don’t get too close it caused me some issues with splintering and tearing out! I’ll grt some closer pics up soon
Ha! If you can find me a big enough tortoise with a jet black shell I might consider it!
Yeah I'm really curious about the controls!
Ah, go on then. This is an old shot of the innerds from the back
The original plan was to have the knobs in a fixed position in the side - then @mtorn made a very good suggestion of using push push pots to spring them out so they could be fully concealed when out of use - I haven’t fully concealed them in their ‘in state’, it didn’t leave enough protruding to grip into when ‘out’...
That is unbelievable slick.
sound test please , love the look by the way
I think it needs black hardware. All that chrome is very distracting!
Very visually stunning Mat!!!!! Great job!
WOW Mat... that's soooo good.
Thanks gents - I’ll get a sound test up at some point... just to shatter the illusion!
Very clever!!! How did you drill the holes to mount the alu piece holding the controls?
With thumbs, patience and a lot of dificulty.
I found these mini electric motor chucks on eBay - they were just small enough to fit in the cavity and came in about a dozen collet sizes. Some holes were easier to ‘drill’ than others.
In future I think I will try and change the cavity shape/position so I don’t need to use a metal bracket... if I do it again that is
My custom pickguard I crafted on the Jazzmaster body I got for Christmas
That looks fantastic! What's it made of?
