A few efficiency issues to address but o/w looks like it’ll work
What kind of wood is that?
Looks like alder to me.
How many Wide Range humbuckers are you putting in?
So yeah, it's Alder that I got locally. I figured I'd just paint it. But then the grain was looking pretty nice so I thought maybe I'd just Tru Oil it which I've never done for a body.
But there are a couple of hairline checks in the wood at the bottom that I need to fill (I HATE that).
I've been burned a few times with locally bought wood. It's never really luthier quality and sometimes just doesn't work out.
So I will just go ahead and lacquer it. Prolly surf green with black hardware.
Again it's a first run which is inherently a bit of an experiment but I think it will make a fine replacement for the Strat that I shouldn't have sold.
I think I'm gonna prolly put in Seymour D pups in there. I've been using them and they sound very good to me. They're basically humbuckers in a single coil profile.
Not a Stratoblaster then. In guitar lingo, -blaster guitars have Wide Range humbuckers.
Second possibility is you're putting in some Alembic active electronics:
well, I came in here thinking I was going to see some questions regarding the alembic stratoblaster circuit... have a personal interest because built my own variation and put it in a few guitars. still nice to see a lovely alder strat so... thanks for that?
Apologies. I didn't even know Stratoblaster was a thing.
I just thought it was a cool name
Beating a dead horse here a bit but for any modelers...
What took me a week to do the first time around I completely revised this AM in a couple of hours.
Sooo much better model. Did all the body edge curves FIRST, then cut the tummy and elbow cuts.
Much cleaner work.
Live and learn!
What CAD program are you using? That looks great.
It would look really cool natural with some stain,. Solid finish is ok too.
I use Rhino (5). Love it.
Takes a good while for it to become really comfortable with it but I feel like I'm getting there.
Same with any CAD program I'm sure.
I "grew up" on TrueSpace which was pretty rockin' in it's day.
I musta spent $1500 on TS and it's updates and then Microsoft bought them out and gave it away FREE! It's basically extinct now of course.
I used Rhino 3-4 for the past 15 years to design jewelry, and some guitar related stuff. You knocked the Start model out of the park, dude. Did you start with anything imported?
Thanks for that.
I gathered a bunch of "blueprints", data, and images online and used the sum of it to make the model.
There's no shortage of that kind of stuff out there for Strats.
One of the coolest tools in Rhino is that ability to bring in an image and scale it exactly. It then serves as a template for modeling.
I imagine jewelry is challenging. All those organic shapes!
A guitar (esp Strat) is relatively simple since most of it is kind of two dimensional.
