    Rezin's Brotherhood 2022 build

    Alright guys I cant make up my mind. I'll be using a switch of some sort to switch my single humbucker from series/single/parallel. Should I use A tele 3 way switch or a mini switch dpdt on/on/on? I have both, and have room for both. I'm stalled right now.

    So this is what a neck finished with z-poxy looks like. You need to do a couple of coats that have a certain thickness to it but not create runs. Sand between coats if you have specs of dust in the finish. Once lets say 3 coat have been applied with a spatula I sand with 1000 grit until all...

    Now for the finishing of the neck it sounds weird but I actually like z-poxy. It gives a nice color and is relatively fast to do. I always go for a satin finish so it will be sanded up to 1500 and left like that. I've done 2 like that and really prefer that to tru oil. And for the body I got...

    Alright another update. During the week I pressed in the fretsI have an old 10 press drill thats perfect for that. If it breaks I'll only cry just a bit hehe. I buy my frets pre radiused because I haven't got around to making a fret roller yet. I overbend them just a hair by hand. For this time...

    Thanks eallen for the heads up. I was going to sand the burl. Do you think the 1/4 inch top will be strong enough since this is a chambered body? Or do I need something to support the top?

    Hey everyone, got enough work done to be able to do a small update. Work has been crazy and I didn't get as much time on my build as I would of hoped. Anyways, received my burl top. I planed on using dyes on it but I might just go natural with Z-poxy and a black burst. I think I'd be crazy to...

    Worked on the neck blank today. I hesitated on laminating at first because it wasn't the look I was going for. But decided to go with it anyway. I'll change my original plan again :lol: . The last neck I did I did not laminate and it developped a short hump near the 12th fret a couple months...

    Rezin's Brotherhood 2022 build

    Well, did a bit more work. Hollowed out the blank and cut the shape. Sanded to the line using the ROSS. I still have some bits to take off the body but I'll be putting a 1/4 inch cap so should even out for the weight. It's now exactly 4.5lbs. I left the back 3/8 thick, but I might make it 1/4...

    Haha ok sometimes you just need to breath in a bit and think. So I made myself a plug cutter and tried ti find a matching grain in the end that will be cutoff. Its not perfect but only 1/16 will show. Now I need to make sure I'm straight :eek:

    Ok guys I put my dots in the fretboard. Obviously like an idiot I didn't recheck my marks and the 15th fret marker is 1/16 off. What could I do to fix that? Maybe redrill 1/16 in the other direction and have an oval dot? It would be the only one though

    Neil's Brotherhood Build 2022 - Tele-gib

    This will be nice! Just a quick question, what are you using to check your neck pocket angle? I have an adjustable metal protractor but I find it really unreliable. Adjusting it at 90 degrees with a machinist square and it doesn't indicate 90 on the gauge.

    Rezin's Brotherhood 2022 build

    Thanks guys. Today I was able to do a bit more work. It was fretboard time. I chose wenge. Since my fretboard blank was a bit less than 1/4inch /I wanted to do the radius and fret slots before the neck so I can adjust the thickness of my neck blank to get my total of 1 inch. I totally HATE doing...

    Hello everyone, for the first time I'll be trying a Brotherhood build. This is only my second complete build, but I've built a couple necks for existing bodies. I really hope to be able to make it in time, but that 90 days will be hard with my crazy schedule at work. The guitar will be a sort...

    Is this fretboard blank usable?

    I've used an iron with a damp cloth over bowed fretboard with great success. just let it sit for a week to make sure it wont come back.

    mishap with my tele but happy ending...

    Nice one. I used to have a squire CV in vintage blond with a white guard. This thing would not sell. Put a black pickguard on it and sold instantly o_O. White was much nicer to me.
