That’s really freaking awesome man!
It's occurred to me you may not "get" certain things I do, some don't. I'll show this picture and explain
Behind my Strat (the only place I use a Tele headstock) is my Snakehead Tele 12 string I built for the 2012 Build Challenge but didn't get finished in time. Big deal you might say, but look closer. A Tele body longer than a Strat, WHAT!? I didn't build the Strat, just heavily modified it. It's also WIDER ! What I did and only one person noticed, it's 1.5" longer than a Tele and has the hips AND width of an LP . There WAS a method to the madness. A curly maple neck, rosewood fretboard and 12 Kluson tuners set Ricky style? I was trying to prevent neck dive in a humorous way, and succeeded. Also look up my Strat Bass, a 30" scale yet nothing is outta proportion. Same deal, 1 1/2" longer and around one inch wider. The mind can't tell because everything "fits" and is in proportion. Just one example of my mind games lol
Do you make your own pickups? It's a ton o' fun..
Just build more guitars - you know you want to.
Seriously, as mentioned, an SG with humbuckers would be a great project to get your teeth into.
I made the pickups for everything except the tele. So Humbuckers, P90s and SSS strat.
Alright, so next project is going to be a 5F1 Champ.
I just ordered a bunch of stuff for it so that the kids can give it to me for Christmas.
Mat, a few years ago I built a kit amp and put it in an oak cabinet. It is my daily player
What if you really need that lipstick pickup tone for a song? Or filtertrons on a semi? Or a double humbucker?
Those look great. I'm amazed you made that pickguard work on the Tele, every time I've seen that pattern I though "who would even buy that?!".
Very, very cool. My initial goal is to not electrocute myself, or start a California wildfire. After that the rest will follow
Yeah, when I saw it it made me think of the ocean. I happened to be walking the dog on the beach and saw a faded, washed out wooden sign and kapow! Inspiration for a driftwood paint job and a ocean pickguard.
Excuse me but your basses haven’t been covered. Wink wink say no more eh?
Amps are fun. Pedals are fun to build and under $20.
I'll leave basses to the bass player. Not my area of interest or expertise.
Why not get your freeky on?
So build him/her/me one.
