Helmut there are three logos on the wood ,so you have one more post, no worries!!!
Nice work mate!
well, i would watch out with that name. its just two little points Knorr or Knörr, but i would not get their lawyers on your doorstep. ;-)
that neck is locking great for a first build. i could not do it better, say, i can't do this at all ;-)
Well, unless I start putting Custom Soups on the logo, I might be good.
Jazz Bass pickups for Mad Mike Johnson of Carter Winter. Took the specs from a fantastic 1965 Jazz Bass down to the magnet charge levels. Plain enamel wire, heavy scatter pattern. 8.3k ohm bridge, 7.9k ohm neck RWRP of course.
That’s how you do it!
Gotta tell you, Mark, whenever I see the ACW, I always fee like this, knowing its back story and all the coolness it's spawned.
Forever grateful for Rob's generosity and gifts. The ACW-1 just keeps going. After I got it from Rob I replaced the 3/8" axle with a 1/2" cold rolled steel rod and swapped the wheelbarrow bearings for some bronze flange bearings. Made a little metal dash board as well that holds the digital counter (I think Rick gave that to Rob). Anyhow, after the overhaul the thing winds perfect coils and I see no reason to replace it. TDPRI history.
It's too bad this needed so much planning.... it's very cool looking
Sadly it's finished thickness is only 1.50.
Check out the bug holes on this thing
I'm thinking about a back cap but it's not what I had intended
1.5" is fine as long as you don't use a standard Tele switch. You can use an LP style 3-way toggle.
Not on my workbench, no pics, and not guitar related. It seems like that happens more often than it used to these days, so here's my non guitar related contribution.
I test drove a Red 2016 392 hemi challenger today. 475 HP is pretty darn cool. The monthly payment with my R/T trade in just didn't cut it for my fiscally responsible nature....so no deal.
Come on, this is a guitar forum! This place wouldn't even exist if it weren't for us ignoring our fiscally responsible nature
It was 2 years old with less than 10K miles on it too. Would have doubled my monthly payment though. Deal breaker.
Nitrous Marty, nitrous...
To heck with the payments Marty! Go for the Demon! You know you want to..
Working on a poplar snake head
Esquire style fun.
Flying T in Korina fresh off the bench.
One piece Alder Jagstang body, painted sonic blue.
Above my workbench...
Headstock repair on a Gibson Les Paul. What a pathetic design Gibson has been running with for so long. Amazing anybody would consider spending money on something that’s guaranteed to fail. This fell face first on carpet off a guitar stand. At least the break was clean and the repair came out really nice.
It's funny how an idea can pull itself together.
This is a new guitar, pickups not working, that I bought for hardware. I have a blackwood droptop, blackwood fb, maple neck, black dots, black guard tele on the go and haven't ordered anything yet.
To make a story a bit shorter, I really like this guitar! I kept going back to it and finally tuned it. It's been played a fair bit, no pickups, the last two days. It's a very resonate guitar. The build quality is surprisingly good enough. Other than the control cavity being badly out of plumb, there's not much work to do on it. The body is one piece of something very light, probably tropical. The frets are all seated and ends finished.
I'm going to try stewmac golden age tele pickups and their pot/switch kit in this one
The burst photographed funny. In person, no red is apparent at all and the light area is more brown. It's a lovely warm tobacco burst. (Those aren't chips on the body, just big bits of dust.)
The headstock has enough room for the tele line. I want to keep the 'Legend' logo, the line will have to be tweaked a bit to make it work. Both sides of the head at the nut need to be brought into line. This will move the carving back some and allow for a snappy volute. At this point, I want the new tele line on the headstock to be right off the bandsaw.
So a classic look gets added to the heap. WooHoo!
