nothing exciting, it’s cold and I’m chipping away at some cozy contours ... it’s funny how much more material ya need to remove here than ya would think lol
... still going and fine tuning
You need a craftsman stationary 6 x48 belt sander to do that arm contour....
I remember seeing that Charvel or one like it recently on Reverb I think. Is it a custom shop? If so that’s an amazing neck to replicate. I’ve played a few and loved them. I just can’t justify the price even used.
I have a MIJ San Dimas that I really enjoy playing. This will be great to watch!
Thanks! Yeah them things are awesome! I took neck dimensions when I had one.... still scrapping away at contours lol
Guitar looks great too
Zweigles or Conti's?...they don't look like Sahlens, which is my dog of choice.
Zweigles, skinless. Key item! Lol
No clue here lol
On a side note: Someone actually paid you to install a D-tuna?
How much do you charge when you change out their light bulbs?
Hahahaa! No, it’s a buddies guitar... he changes my lightbulbs for me.
To cold and snowy to do much else... made this thing last night. Should come in handy at some point.
That be fancy...a party-clip with a burst. Nice!
Probably should have done this planing a couple steps ago but it worked out, thankfully.
I had to jump out into the snow and thin out this neck so it was real close to an inch when capped with the fretboard.
Kept it a hair over an inch for fine sanding...
Waiting for the snow to stop...
Next up, truss rod channel
Ahh the outdoor shop , mines a little brisk right now at -40
Next time around, you’ll make life easier for yourself if you route the truss channel when the board is square, before you cut it to shape. That way you simply run it against the fence on the router table.
To those asking, that Charvel is a new limited run they’re doing. I forgot the name of the artist it’s named after. I love the look. Can’t wait to see this one done!
Thanks, yeah I know lol I’m a pain in my own keyhole sometimes... I’ll get it... just waiting to get outside... to cold and snowy right now for me lol
Is it an Original Floyd Rose?
You probably have seen this already. My suggestion would be to drill the two holes for the studs and insert them BEFORE you route the cavity that goes through the body. Those studs are damn close to the edge and it is really easy to crack your body when you put them in.
The other thing that comes to my mind is the depth of the spring cavity vs. the swimming pool route on top. Since you're going non-recessed, the bottom of your trem block is going to sit higher within the body. Not a problem if you have a long (42mm) block, more so if it's a short one (32mm), because the spring cavity would have to be routed deeper to accommodate for it if that makes sense?
Very cool build by the way, Floyds make me giggle every time I play a guitar equipped with one
These were before the inserts..
Original Bridge Mounting Wood Screws – Floyd Rose
Indeed...But it seems like this one uses them:
I can see how using those screwed-in posts makes sense, though, however primitive they are. Less wood to remove, dangerously close to the cavity.
