No, you are going to build the classical. I'm just going to sit on the sidelines and cheer you on.
Helped my oldest son spray his Partscaster with white nitro.
Went from this
Finally getting aroun to doing a little nitro buffing on the carved top walnut/ambrosia maple build I've been playing with.
If it seems like I am buffing low on the wheel it is because I am. I have significant back problems so I buff setting on my raised chair. I have the buffer belt set loose enough I can stall it rather than it throwing parts out of my hands.
Well, i do expect problems, But!
this is my so called starting point. two solid walnut tele's to be, hopefully someday.

Finishing up on two different pedal circuits called "Redstone". The first is a Nucleon board for three band EQ and boost. The second is a DeadEnd FX clone of the Mercury IV germanium boost, also called the "Redstone", clever
I can't wait to hear them, the last of the parts I was waiting for came from Small Bear and Love My Switches today. The Mercury uses a boatload of JFETs and a NOS 2N404 germanium PNP. The EQ is just a couple of TL072's and a charge pump. I may sub some different op-amps in it after I get it wired up.
I have found tlc2722 to be great for eq circuits.
I've also had some pedals on my workbench (well desk). I've been doing some tone searching, thought I was looking for the right tremolo/reverb setup for a while then realised I really like the sound of vibrato either with dirt or a little reverb. So I designed and built one!
I'm a big fan of top mounted jacks
This next one is for a friend, it's an em drive clone, he has a real one and really likes it (its always on for clean/low drive). He wanted a second but they're not cheap especially for how basic they are so I built him one just using stuff from my parts bin. So his original is always on for low gain, the second one is for high gain. Now he wants a third for medium gain and here it is.
I can't believe how much emerson charge for one of these (£130 new). They do use very nice components though, PIO caps, some very fine high spec CTS pots and switch craft jacks. Thats all well and good but if you skip the mojo its £15 to DIY. 2 caps, 2 pots, 2 resistors (I use a trimmer for one), a BJT plus all the other nescessities.
(I miss wired the switch in this pic)
I love me some DIY pedals. I've been thinking of building my favorite overdrive with a microcontroller and digital drive pot so that I can have one box with multiple drive settings at the press of a button,a programmable overdrive. Shouldn't be too bad.
Wasn't happy with the finish of the birch cap on my thinline build so took inspiration from my GoldTop LP kit. Glad its went down this route. The colours work well together.
Worked on loading and wiring a Strat pickguard.
Deneb-Tone Neodymium mag singles
500k Volume and Tone for neck and bridge with.022 cap
500k Volume only middle
3 on/off/on DTDP switches for series/parallel combos
I would have use STSP switches for neck and middle, but was having a hard time finding them in on/off/on configuration. All I could find was on/on and that wouldn't work for the series option.
I have a 24.5" scale double cut Tele build that has been in the works too long. P90 neck/HB bridge and I've been trying to figure out whether to paint it Rose Gold or Gold Sparkle with Root Beer around the edge Burst style. Can't make up my mind which yet.
Yours looks great.
Wet sanded with 800gt.
Sprayed last coat, 50/50, nitro & lacquer thinner.
Also sprayed another coat of white on my son's Strat.
2 more of the CNC controller boards..
Wrapped my Champ Amp cabinet build in Tweed this weekend.
Now I need to seal coat it, and start assembling the sparky parts.
Wow, that came out beautiful!!
Chasing a wiring issue
The rotary switch was fubar and the wire from the switch to the jack was broken.
The bridge pickup needs to be rewound but the neck pickup sounds great
They appear to be a coil wound around a big old magnet and stuffed into a metal cover - kind of like a big lipstick pickup.
The neck on this thing is HUGE!!
Only 18 frets....
That burst idea sounds fantastic!
what are you using for the LED in that thing mr Asmith sir ?
is it using the full supply voltage, or dropping across that resistor on the footswitch?
