    Tickled Pink: Jupiter's Es-335 Build

    Here's a method to calculate your neck angle. Set your actual body flat on a table with the body resting on the arching, and the sides parallel with the table, Measure the distance from the edge of the sides to the table. Something like one half Inch. This is your arching height. Next draw it...

    Tickled Pink: Jupiter's Es-335 Build

    Yes Jupiter that's right. It's a beam that is straight with a hook on the nut end and exactly from the nut to where the bridge will be sitting there is a dowel that sticks out one half inch. This beam rides on The frets.

    Tickled Pink: Jupiter's Es-335 Build

    I didn't realize you had gotten that far. Looks like it'll work fine. Plaster is readily available in the hardware stores here so that's why I suggested it.

    Make a plaster cast. Use it as a backer. Saran wrap over plate then your plywood cutout then pour in plaster. Level.

    Yes it does. I have a friend in a position to get set up and I could not recommend f360 yet.

    Tickled Pink: Jupiter's Es-335 Build

    Yes. The center block was done differently in different periods. For the first alteration from the solid one that you were doing wasn't cut out to fish the pots through. That sounds little different The consensus is that it doesn't make that much of a difference although a little bit. But Eric...

    Tickled Pink: Jupiter's Es-335 Build

    Jupiter, I just wanted to let you know that I'm taking some time to go through your thread. It's interesting to see how you think things through and get help from this forum. Please ask if you have any specific questions for me.

    there's a little hint. You're going to zero your Z height on the spoil board. Or wherever you are going to zero it. Put the small cutter in the keep it slightly loose. Then jog down to the surface. Slowly until it touches. In the bit will slide. Stop jogging once it starts to slide. 0Z. Tighten...

    The other question is have you ever used Rhino and a rhino plug-in for Cam like rhino Cam or mad cam? I would really be interested in your comparison if you have.

    Very nice documentation. You really do A good presentation of your work. I have a few questions. What is the reason that you removed all of the material around the dots? Is that because you get better round stock? For example couldn't you just use a micro bit and route spiral passes around...

    Yes that is the idea I had. Cad is a whole world in itself. Once you know the commands you can sweeten the curves. There are other ways to achieve good arching also.

    Here is a good photo. See the line where it goes from arching to flat. That line is pretty sweet. Another words there are no bumps.

    Sweet Little Angel

    Here is a hint for making topographical lines that result in sweet arching. Your lowest line, in other words the line just inside the perimeter should be rendered so that it is sections of circles. To achieve this in rhino you can take the existing line and analyze it in different areas where...

    The width of the lower about is inconsequential. Except that if it's too large it might not fit in the case. 16.25 is pushing it. I think it should be closer to 16.00 Where as the 2.15 neck dimension is critical to play ability. As for the arching, I think I would go about this a little bit...

    Scale the body so that the end of the body where it meets the neck is 2.15 inches. Place your finger board so that the 19th fret is the end of the body Scale your fretboard so that the width is 2.15 inches at the 19th fret. Preserve the scale of the fretboard. Keep it 24.75 inches. Just line...

    Can you see the picture Gil? It's a 335 shape made with Brazilian Rosewood veneers. It would probably sound better if it was built like a 335 because I believe the crest is hollow.
