Where will the jack plate go?
Mostly done, but I ran out of steam and it's beer:thirty. Just need to hook up pickups to the switch, string with Fender 9-46 Bullets, then test and setup.
Excellent! Looks great - one of my favorites in this forum.
Thanks! I'm anxious to hear what P90 'quack' sounds like through the 5-way Strat switch.
It’s pretty cool and a bit what you’d expect - less quack, more oomph. YMMV
Yowza. That's stunning!
Who's paint did you use? I'm planning a LPB-ish metalic blue for my current build.
I used Duplicolor Paint Shop lacquer, BSP208 Sublime Green Pearl. It comes in quart cans, premixed with thinner, ready to spray. Perfect for doing guitars, but not a ton of colors.
Fantastic design, there's absolutely nothing NOT to like about this! Sweet!
It’s just brilliant! Bravo! (I’ll start right here with the “green with envy” jokes )
Fantastic!! I love it.
Did you put a clear lacquer on it after the tinted lacquer?
Can't wait to hear it
Well, the sad part is I'm a talentless player. I'm attracted to the building of a guitar, but absolutely suck at playing one. I have a little Princeton Reverb that I use to set up & tune the guitars, and occasionally attempt to learn a song or two. But I really don't have any message to convey musically; I just like designing & makin' guitars.
Plus, I don't have a phone or any means to record & send videos, so there's that...
I resemble that remark...and bravo to you. The journey is an important thing!
Good lordy, that thing is so indescribably tough looking I can't hardly stand it!
You could go to a local music store and say you're looking for a player to do a short demo on the guitar you've built. They might be able to connect you with someone, or someone working there who can play could demo it...
You need a case for it anyway, right? Or maybe a final setup? That guitar will get a lot of attention, and people will be falling over themselves asking if they can play it.
Someone on another forum suggested getting a custom neck plate, so I searched around and found a service offered by Philadelphia Luthier. Fair price, at about $20 shipped. I ordered it Friday, and it arrived today (!). Well packaged, and it includes new screws and a small setup gauge.
