Here it is,have marked three tops already .Really pale but will be stained
Time to get busy Dave...you've been procrastinating.
My 23 1/2 fret template.A fine neck really but better for me as a template
Drum roll please..........presenting the uh 9 string thang? Geeeez ,pathetic but since it doesn't really fit a design or category I guess I'll just name it at some point (suggestions welcome). Before anybody gripes, yes I know, my cell phone takes crappy pictures.Next ones I'll dig out my old phone,the camera was pretty good if I recall. But the old HP 320 finally went to that electron yard in the sky so unless you wanna do a go fund me page for a camera we're stuck for now. Below is the body core, top and back and the neck blank.Also a layout of the Ricky style headstock but with only 9 tuners (at least in the beginning lol
Just so you know, as usual I've been working on a few simultaneously. But fear not, just getting my feet wet again here,they'll all have their own build threads,hopefully with wit,humor, and most of all some of my dearest friends on this planet
A $10 bar stool pine round becoming a guitar, gotta be a first there somewhere lol. They have a smaller even cheaper one I keep meaning to make something cute out of, but hey only time will tell.
Oh, and please, BRING BACK THE CHALENGES! Uh, thank you
Oh, and hello to all the new people I haven't met yet . Although you aren't newbies here, guess I kinda am a 2.0. To know me is to............eh tolerate me at least.And don't let the name fool ya, truth in advertising,certifiable lol
Sorry,have not been dallying but working on several at once,waiting on parts,funds etc.Got my laminated neck cut for a reinforcing rod and profiled,Gonna have to extend the headstock for a 12,err 9 and then install ears.Will have a garolite cover with my brand decal (ABBA Custom Guitars).No not in business,yet. The following is from the last few days.You know better than to ask about the other parts,all in good time in their own threads .Good night my friends
Preparing the headstock extension scarf and then truing up.Also cutting the headstock ears.The core is maple/red oak/maple and the ears add a small red oak/maple on each side
Not bad for a flea market block plane and a Japanese saw through red oak
Man, what are ya taking these pictures with?
Sadly my Korean cellphone.The HP320 I used to use packed it in a few years ago and I've just never gotten another though the pawnshops are full.A donation wouldn't be refused lol
PS There in Japan with all those sharp planes,chisels and saws, a handworkers paradise
Oh yeah, they got amazing craftsmanship. Planes and chisels are still a foreign language to me, but I love my 3 Japanese saws!
Hopefully the bad pic situation will be resolved soon,sadly not today
Got the extension glued to the peghead and starting on the multi template lol
Neck extension ready for the ears
Not THOSE ears!!!
.Got the pup and jack template routed
Then got the body core to the line with the spindle sander
Now to glue the top,do a little routing and dress the sides.Won't glue the back for awhile
Changed my mind lol, glued on the back
Come on guys, no name suggestions? LMAO
Hmmmmmmm, I’m cookin on it.
Out of the clamps, not bad
Now for the pointy end lol
