I'm in! Let's do this thing!
Frick, I wish I had more money.. I have the school to get lots of scraps from (they usually have one or two sides jointed, yay!) so wood should be cheap, at least... 70 bucks for pickups, bridge, string retainers, and tuners... Seems pretty pricey..
And you get some of this...
And a stack of these...
Had a few templates I needed to make for various projects but somewhere in that stack is the body template for my Build Challenge entry. On top is the require Tele headstock template.
I'm in! I have no idea what I'm building but I'm pretty sure it won't be made of yardsticks... Probably.
I'm already disappointed. What are the rest of us supposed to make bad jokes about now?
If you make a MIJ/MIK version, you can use meter sticks and be fine... just an idea.
I'm in as well but already having "buyer's remorse". If it doesn't go well it may be the shortest beginner thread of all times
Toothpicks? Bamboo skewers? Pencils? Cardboard? Wicker basket thinline? Crochet?
C'mon! Spill the beans.
Speaking of toothpicks.... I am pretty sure I'm out of it this year...I did develop an idea, which I may use sometime, but I think that at this moment in time with the extra cold temps in the shed, that I just don't feel like doing another thread on top of what I've got going on.
5 years in a row was enough I guess. Good luck to all of you that are going to be involved.
Oh' hell no. Your finishing.
All you need to stay warm is one of these:
Got it a few weeks ago (it was supposed to come in November, ...long story)
This sucker puts out a lotta heat! Even though it's been unusually warm here in Utah, so I haven't needed it as much.
But seriously, I'll be looking for that build, whenever you do it.
Yes sir! I sure will
Alright I'm off the fence - I likely fell from a great height in the process
My flatwork and magnets shipped from mojotone yesterday:
Won't be doing THAT again. I could get 2 PU's from EYguitar for what the flatwork and 6 A5 slugs are costing me with shipping....
Guess I'll be stocking up on garolite and mags when I'm in the States this summer.
Did you get a kiss out of that????
What if the winners of the build challenge just got a lifetime supply of hershey kisses... I bet there would be more competition...
Um..... That's not exactly where I was going with that B. ;-) So have you gotten your Mom talked into the Challenge yet?
I first put in a special request to have them confirm the shipping costs and to get the cheapest shipping they could. That went down the well--never even heard it hit the bottom.
9 days later, I sent a nudge mail and they replied that they were slowed down by ice storms, and the PU covers and screws were on back order, and did I want to wait or not. Fair enough.
I replied, asking what the difference in shipping would be in both cases so I could decide if it would be worth it to wait. Nothing but the sound of crickets for 6 more days.
Finally I just said "ship what you got", and that worked.
Last summer, I mailed myself those two honkin neo magnets, in a box, in another box, and it was about 18 bucks, I think.
I'm fine with the price of the flatwork and mags themselves, though I don't think they were really cheap, either. But that's some expensive shipping, especially for something that would fit in a regular greeting card envelope....
I was disappointed that they couldn't cope with my special concerns, and annoyed by the expense, but I'd still use mojotone, under these conditions:
no special circumstances
and that's all I got to say about that. ;-)
I bought some small parts from them once and only once! When the line for the shipping cost says "bend over" that is when I stop being a customer, at least for small orders.
For Ey? I love the site for placing orders for maybe two guitars, but small stuff is kinda silly.
