Give me a cave like that and I grow Homo sapiens idaltu again...
@ Ike: don't know what it is with you and the man cave ...
That 'man cave' is the biggest 'plus' where I rent my little shop !!!
Once you're married for 25 years you will understand the importance of a man cave
Ok, I'm not married, but have a girlfriend, and my shop is my baby !
Can't live without both of them, and always happy when I can go to either one of them !!!
But maybe after 25 years the shop is the only peace haven ...
And a little bit further ...
Routed out the top and back:
behind routed, in the front un-routed:
Just with double stick tape to the template:
Of to the table router:
After that, time to glue the first pieces of the core:
Still need an arm rest and some details which I did not figured out yet ...
Previous pictures puzzled me but now I can see how you're building this guitar. Nice job Stijn !
Whoehoe, I've got stars !!!
Happens to me every time I bump my head!
The body is almost finished:
The top has to be a little bit more flexible, because I want an arm rest, so I've routed some "sound holes"
For the control cavity... It was a little bit to small ...
So I had to tune the pot ...
Still needs some channels for the pup wire ...
Lookin' gooooooooood Stijn !
What's the relation between the armrest and the soundholes?
Wait and see ...
Now I'm getting really curious
Looking really cool!
Wow, I love those soundholes. Did you use a bit that allowed you just cut one line, or is
that more than one pass?
It was just one pass, so I had to be very careful, didn't want the router to wander around...
Did some tubing work today ...
On to the lathe:
This is how the guitar will look with a bridge:
I mentioned multi-scale already, I think...
Did I also said hollow neck?
Just throwing a line ...
Whaaat?? Hollow-neck??? You dare-devil!
That is a science fiction Tele! Very cool.
You, sir, are an artist! Very very nice.
Stijn, you bragger
Better tie it to a table leg, when finished, otherwise it might start to levitate.
