    What case for a Blueridge BR-60?

    I just bought a Blueridge BR-60 in supposedly excellent condition on Reverb. I say supposedly because it was pretty cheap, and I haven't received it yet. Don't really like buying guitars without trying them first, but nobody around here sells them, as I said it was a bargain, and a whole bunch...

    Logos & Clones

    Quick question about brand name labels on clones. I mostly hang out in the Home Depot forum. I’m much more of a woodworker than an electrical tech, but I love the sound of tube amps. May make one one day. To that end, I have been lurking around here for a little bit. (I must say there are a...

    nosmo's Acoustic Adventure

    A long time ago, in a forum not so far away, some dummy started a thread about making mandolins. If you’re the type of person that likes self-punishment, you can go back and read through it. I didn’t want to drag it back from the dead (so please don’t post in it), but it does have some of the...

    A Build for Brainy: Carved Walnut

    I was tinkering with this idea, and thanks to Kwerk, I now have a reason to build it. Even though I didn't know him well, Brainy & I had quite a bit in common. A slightly sarcastic sense of humor, a love of good knobs, mediocre finishing skills, and of course the quest for world dominance. I...

    nosmo's Acoustic Bass

    I did a little project as a Christmas gift for my nephew. He requested an acoustic bass to play around with on the couch. I know, I know…acoustic basses are useless. They aren’t loud enough to play with an acoustic guitar. Bla, bla, bla……. We’ll see. It’s hard to find plans for an...

    Acoustic Bass Info

    Anybody got any good advise about acoustic basses? I need to build one for my nephew. I've got a couple good books on acoustics, but I was wondering what the big differences are. Is the top braced more or differently for the tension? Could I just build one like a regular guitar with maybe a...

    EM6000 over Tru-Oil

    Excuse me if this has been covered. I normally hang out in the Tele Home Depot, but I have a quick question. Can I apply EM6000 (with EM1000 sealer) over Tru-Oil? I planned to use EM1000 sealer & EM6000 on the body & headstock, but I like Tru-Oil on my necks and I want the binding on the...

    Foundation 2

    Some of you may remember that I built a guitar for a wounded veteran's foundation last year. Well, I'm going to do that again. I need to give this guitar to my niece for the fundraising sporting clays shoot in April. Figured I should start it now since some of my projects tend to take a little...

    Foundation Build

    I wanted to build a guitar for this foundation since last year. http://www.patrickwilliamson.org/ My niece is pretty involved with the organization as she was very close to Patrick when he was killed in Afghanistan. Every spring they have a sporting clays tournament in Lafayette, LA to...

    Acoustic Feedback

    I'm bored! I can't use my shop at the moment - I'm working. The job slowed down, so I have too much time on my hands. When this happens I start to think too much. I usually dream about the current build or the next 5 or 6. Then, without any grand plan or parts list I start buying anything that...

    nosmo's Duplicator

    I had a couple days before I go to work, and I kind of stopped working on the mandolins. I didn't want to start some part that I couldn't finish. So I started this little project - that I can't finish :roll: Started with a sheet of 3/4" plywood. Not construction grade. You want stuff...

    "Wood" a Mandolin be OK?

    I was talking to a friend the other day and told him I was building guitars. He thought that was pretty cool and said if I built a mandolin, he'd buy it for his step father. Awesome - my first commission! Of course I told him if it doesn't work out, he doesn't have to buy it. And I don't expect...

    Inlay & Black Lacquer Question

    Since I’m away from home a can’t sniff sawdust & lacquer fumes, all I can do is think of more things to try when I do get a chance to build guitars. The quest I’m on now involves MOP inlays & lacquer. Doesn’t really have to be black lacquer, but for the purposes of this exercise, let’s just...

    Nosmo's PU Winder

    I was in the shower the other day and I said to myself, "Self" I said, "with all the talk about maybe having to wind your own pickup for the 2013 challenge, I wonder why nobody has done a winder build thread?” I mean really, I know there are guys here that could do it. I know Scatterlee had a...

    Nosmo #2 - Ziricote

    Hi everybody - I had such a good time building a bass for the challenge I thought I'd try my hand at another build. I have some Hickory left over, and I really liked the way it finished. Not so much the way it machines - It is pretty hard & heavy and tends to split out some when routing. It...

    nosmo's 2012 Challenge Build Thread -- COMPLETED

    OK - I'll give it a shot. I've never cut out a body or neck, so I guess I'll try the Best Beginner Category.

    Looking for Tele Neck Template

    Hey out there, I'm trying to find a PDF drawing for a Tele neck. I have the TDowns drawing (which is awesome!) but it is just the body. I'm sure there is a drawing here somewhere, but I can't seem to find it.

    Hello from Texas

    Hello to all - This is my first effort at actually joining a forum. (Excuse me if I mess this up) I've been sneaking around here picking up tips for my Tele build. I'm amazed at the knowlege of the members here. I am not anywhere near a pro musician, but I entertain myself & I love...
