    Very cool Dietrich. I've always loved those double cuts.

    Are you making the angle for the neck pocket on the body or on the neck?

    Looks like you added a stop tail to your pattern too, is that right? I kinda like the wraparound, having the strings in contact with that much metal gives that brassy tone and sustain that really makes the "Junior" sound IMO.

    I love the doublecut shape too, very Johnny Thunders.

    more progress


    We must make the hole for the truss rod nut "nut" (as some call it)

    For that use a perforated wooden nitrous cut to 17 º and a lock of 17mm 4-pin
    [​IMG]

    Tested on a piece of pine to not ruin the work
    [​IMG]

    While I agree, maybe a little long, but well ....

    [​IMG]

    Now to do the shovel Jr

    [​IMG]

    Another shot
    [​IMG]

    Here you can see I spend a few mm

    Great! This looks like a place to gather a lot of information for my next build (next to ScatterLee's).

    Good job, sir. Johnny Thunders would be proud! :D

    PS: please tell me you're doing it TV Yellow?

    Looking great dietrichluthier.
    Why not get a longer bit for the mortise... extending those long bits out of the collet in order to get a deeper cut is very dangerous. Don't ask me how I know...

    Thanks friend
    ScatterLee's is very good builder, his post has a lot of information

    Sorry, but TV would not be a yellow, red cherry will
    like this

    [​IMG]

    Gil is an honor you're here, I've learned a lot about you

    I know what you mean, but is the router bit safer than I could buy
    We have a job that is dangerous
    Once when I was 21 years, I remove it with a fingernail bandsaw, really hurt

    It does bolt truss rods, drilled and welded and is in one piece
    [​IMG]

    10-32 thread

    [​IMG]

    It covers the scroll bar of steel with a piece of hard maple, glued with hot glue (hide glue)
    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    after a few days the glue dries remove the maple exedentent
    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    continue with the fingerboard (rosewood), very bright indeed:)

    Cuts are made will go where the dishes, and begin to sand the radio (12)


    Much sand

    [​IMG]

    To do this use a guide to which the cue does not run, it looks like a perfectly flat table of the planer
    [​IMG]

    They are made with chalk lines to see if it goes well

    [​IMG]

    lack a bit in the end, it is hard to see

    [​IMG]

    Once over the radio, holes are made of pearl items, they must be 7mm but I failed, so these are 6mm

    [​IMG]

    Place stick and re-sanding

    [​IMG]

    I am very well!
    [​IMG]


    until next time:D
