Non telecaster related content I’m afraid although I am thinking of a new quirky build using this, some nice paisley fabric, a Hipshot tremolo bridge that I never used, and some goldfoils. Anyone know what this neck is off? The tuners are Gotohs. No serial no. or other identifying marks that I...
That is absolutely gorgeous.
Is it literally crushed mother of pearl mixed with clear epoxy? Did you buy the crushed MOP?
I'm wondering if I could do something similar with crushed abalone shells, available at no cost on local beaches...
Here's mine... not finished yet.
Currently on around 20 coats of tru-oil. The woods are Australian Red Cedar and Victorian Mountain Ash.
It's getting Lollar Staple P90s.
That's a Warmoth neck. Flame maple and ebony.
I did a Tele body using pine from Bunnings 2 or 3 years ago. I bought the 3/4" boards (I think they call it 19mm) and used six of them - three on top of another three - so that the final total thickness was 1.5 inches, which I like. I used Aquadhere, I think. I managed to find a piece with a...
Here is a body I'm working on with a cedar/Victorian Mountain Ash/cedar sandwich. Mountain Ash is Eucalyptus Regnans, not a true ash, but a very useful wood, used for things like flooring and furniture here in southern Oz, although it can be quite heavy.
It's the tallest flowering plant in the...
I got a nice, reasonably glossy finish on River Redgum (Eucalyptus Camaldulensis) by sanding first to around 600, then applying around 20 thin coats using pads made from an old t-shirt.
I went over each coat after it had dried with 0000 grade steel wool before applying the next coat. The final...
Thanks - and I see from that thread that we have already discussed redgum!
It's a beautiful wood. Like I said on the other thread, I have an old, seasoned stable piece that I've used already for a body. It's hard and wears tools badly but the end result is just gorgeous. I can see how it would...
1) One of those MIJ Paisleys, preferably the blue version
2) A rosewood tele (every time I go into one of those obscenely expensive vintage Scandinavian furniture stores I feel like dropping 1 or 2 grand on an old desk, just so I can cut it up and build my own).
You're not an engineer, are you? I'm an engineer and this bothers me... slightly. I am pedantic, though, and I had to check the definitions. A bolt is used together with a nut to create a bolted joint. A screw makes its own thread or screws into a part that is already threaded, as I understand it.
