Have a look:
I know how long it took me to put together one of their bunk beds and it went from being an X-Mas present to a Birthday present for my daughters. I'm guessing you'd have to assemble that block by block with the same amount of fun and excitement as a jig saw puzzle and/or Rubick's Cube. I do like the end product and hardware. Plus it is going to last at least into the next millenium. Not sure how the "wood resonance" would be and you couldn't pay me enough to assemble it. Is there a Mr. Hahn in the house?, (I don't think Ron would touch this one with his current stock of Barn Wood)
Actually, reading the whole article for once, pretty darn impressive......and I think for what it is....that's a reasonable price with it's own version for "Road Worn" knive marks on it.
Whatever you do, don't criticize this guy's work or he will copy your post and ridicule your words on his website. Which no one really reads, or even cares much about beyond the occasional laugh when someone brings it up.
But hey, his words will cut you to the bone.
Okay, maybe not to the bone, but it will definitely sting a little, like Bactine. Oh, wait. Bactine doesn't sting.
Yeah, definitely like Bactine.
There've been a few of those built by members here (that may be one of them)
Search for 'Ikeacaster'
Just kidding around here with the "Ikea" concept and not directed at the builder. If you do read about it, which I finally did, this is very impressive and quite and undertaking. So Ikea in jest and yes that is a very impressive Tele, and no I could not put that together in a 100 years if I tried!
Pretty pictures, hideous text.
After giving this Tele a bunch of flak because of my knee jerk response to Ikea....I now find myself in the position of defending the builder. I think this is a great Tele with the Block wood, Extra Knurl Knobs, P-90 neck. Looks great and I would be willing to be giving some serious consideration to the price tag if not for other builders that I am aware of, (see above post). I would want to play it and hear it before I considered purchasing it, but I do think it's an excellent guitar. Maybe this fellow is full to the brim of himself but I nevertheless think that's a heck of a guitar. Just wouldn't want to build it. In fact, I made it as far as Lincoln Logs and had to call it quits.
Someone sure was full of himself when he wrote that execreble copy.
I built one for my dad. Search for "kitchencaster".
I think its a great idea. I might get a block and i dont know **** about woodworking but for 24.99 i will give it a wack.
For my first build I have used these pieces of wood glued together. Spruce on lower and pine on upper side. I had only problems with sanding. And the guitar (strat copy) plays well. And the best thing: it is very LOUD played without amp.
I looked at it on my phone. The text was fine. Sometimes, font substitution is your friend.
I grew tired of the angst & H8N really fast.
Cool idea. I can't imagine there's much resonance to butcher block. Has he ever posted any videos of it in action?
I like what he did with the neck heel.
The headstock reminds me of Gumby's head. Now he's got me H8N 2.
the z headstock is hideous; man, I wish I had never seen it 'cause what your eyes have seen cannot be unseen...
He needs more pictures on that page..
And yap, the headstock
Are you being witty? ... sometimes it's hard to tell over the internet...
I guess if you substitute obscure Chinese idiograms for the letters so that the text is unreadable
I thought the comment about the text being hideous was a reference to the font used on his web page. Now that I've seen it on the computer, I guess that comment was referring to the lettering burned into the wood on the body of the guitar?
The idea behind the photo shoot is to take a lot of pictures & use the best ones. I guess nobody told him about that 2nd part....
