i like it..but then i'm a rock in the gears sort
Just a tad under 9lbs. You won't feel the carving on your forearm and the gears are carved below the surface about an eighth of an inch. It's been played by an eclectic bunch...from size 2 punk rock girls to 260lb. meatheads with sausage paws. Nobody has commented on getting hung up in the carving, but a valid concern.
It's different! But those 6100 frets
I'll fret it with barn nails if that's whatcha want. 6100's were a good starting point for our 'standard' offering, but we will install any fret size/profile a customer wants...with no up charge.
Man, I wouldn't want to get my finger caught in there while I have that Tele crankin' away!
Hey onespeed thanks for the quick response! My main concern would be the area immediately above and behind the bridge. When doing a gig and getting caught up in the heat of the moment, I wonder if my pick might get caught on one of the edges above the low e string, or my hand and knuckles getting banged up in the carving? Otherwise I'm thinking it's a really cool piece.
You need to do one with painted gears under a clear deluxe style pickguard...that would be sweet...IMHO
Anything is possible RJ, but in all honesty the edge of the carving is really no more of a distraction than say a humbucker ring. Pick it up and play...the only time you are going to notice the carving is when you are looking at it.
You might just be onto something there.
Very cool guitar, very cool thread. I liked it when I saw it, like it more now.
I really get alot out of this forum...
Metallic gears ... I can see that!
That's very cool. Nice work.
maybe not painted, but stained gears would be insane looking! or not the gears, but have the gears taped off and have the background dyed. looks good without, and i think would look great with!
and if you did a deluxe-style with routing under a pickguard then i might have to start saving now... i'm a fan of that!
Thanks for everyone's input. It's really been insightful to read what you all think. Lots of interesting things to consider. Some of your suggestions are very thought provoking, indeed. If any of you are interested, you can track us down on Facebook. Cirque musical instruments. Exciting things are coming.
Any opinions on neck humbuckers? What would go well with the Pre-B1 bridge pickup we are using?
How about a Duncan Antiquity ?
My only suggestion on the carving would be to radius that lower right gear off the tone knob.....and maybe a metal engraved ( to match ) pick guard.
Radius? Could you expound?
