Quartered Douglas Fir
This is a picture of someone else's guitar. I must take some of mine....
I'm starting to develop an affinity for birdseye thanks to you guys. Nice-looking build. How is the DF? Is it on the heavy side or light?
My work in progress
Here's a cherry Tele that I built some 30
years ago. It gets a lot of use
Had some mahogany scraps and built this one, didn't have enough to do a solid back so added maple strips.
Thanks, the finished guitar is 7lbs 2oz - the neck is actually quatersawn flame maple
Lovely, man. Very nice work.
My homemade prototype offset tele style Lacewood on Mahogany
Edenhaus Mahogany body custom homemade copper pickguard
Bloodwood capped Black Korina body/Bloodwood neck
Padouk capped Black Korina custom sound hole
Warmoth Swamp Ash body/Fender neck
Wow, never seen anything quite like that. Fantastic.
Built this partscaster last year.
Refinished SX Body, Revelation Neck, Artec Pickup. Looks and plays pretty good for a £100-ish guitar.
Random eBay body, Warmoth neck, mostly Fender bits.
A Warmoth Contoured, Chambered Swamp Ash T body from 2014. Simply finished in MinWax oil based stain rubbed on , rubbed off.. BGP roasted maple with Gold EVO 6105's Kinda chunky neck. Joe Barden bridge w/Gotoh InTune brass saddles. Fender CS TT Pickups, MojoTone 4 way wiring harness, Hipshot open gear 18:1 tuners.
She really sounds nice.
The Tele Twins
Sociable creatures are Telecaster's. This one is just hanging out... Well, being lacquered as I type.
Purchased this T-style with a nitro finish over swamp ash that has not had the grain filled. New Fender vintage series pick guard and some new stainless knobs and switch tip from Armadillo.
It reminds me of the back of an old mandolin
Yes it kinda does, can't imagine doing one of those bowl shaped mandolins.
My thought was of a 3 piece Martin back, but with more pieces
There were a lot of edges to slather with glue and then clamp in the jig.
Sometimes a dry run is imperative!
Here's a couple spalted maple Teles I've put together. One for me and one for a buddy of mine. He liked mine so much he asked If I would build him one but with a maple fretboard. I made his nicer than mine dammit!
Mine. A friend did the headstock veneer for me, the rest was my work. Tex-Mex pickups:
My buddy's w. Fender Pure Vintage pickups. Said he wanted a bit of flame and no tint:
This all walnut one is next for me, Filtertrons going in this one. I did the
headstock veneer on this one myself, learned the tricks from my friend:
