Unbelievably COOL !
That's gonna be one tough guitar. Very cool the way you milled your own base plate for the vibrato. I wouldn't gretschify it too much if I were you. It's your's. It's probably better... You should be real proud of the work you do. It deserves your name on it.
This is a cool one.
Very cool! Outstanding work!
Wow- do you expect it to have extra jangle?
Thanks everyone, I'm verry happy with the result
BTW here's another "White Chicken", just a few minutes old, and number 4 of this day.
There's at least one chicken in white, if it is a female we will keep her and name her Fender, so I will have a real Fender White Chicken
I haven't seen this thread - the guitar looks totally wicked... I wish I had your skills! I think I like everything about it - the brass knobs look fantastic and the pickups you selected and the tail piece really set the guitar off. Really Tasty! and the milling work is wow as well.
I want one
Didn't do much this week. Only started finishing the neck and polished the bigsby.
Today the pickup rings arrived. Ordered the rest of the parts, which I will pick up tomorrow.
Is it to early to dub this year's lot of guitars, the best ever?
Wow there are a lot of great guitars, and that is right up there at the top.
any chance you could draw up some plans for that bigsby? (to push my luck even more in metric mesurements?) i am studying fitting turning and tool making (so machining) so i have access to a couple of very good mills to use and i can make random things if i want haha.
I took an original Bigsby, coppied the mesurements and only make it a lot shorter.
Here's the last mockup picture.
Sprayed the body with primer/filler. One of these days I will spray some color on it. Still not sure what collor, so suggetions are welkom (I would say metallic orange or green).
Got all the parts, so will start to assembling very soon.
why doesnt the steel effect the magnetism of the pickups?
Wow, such an incredible guitar. Endless cool details, I could stare at it all day.
That looks good even in the cream colored primer.
I second MadJack but my vote would go for either a metallic green or that pale (non metallic) green that Gretsch use that reminds me of 50s kitchen cabinets.
oh yeah I nearly forgot .....WOW.
I have a jones for a Filtertron equipped Tele. I just have to hear this thing. I second the vote for that creamy Gretsch light green color. Great build!
Would that be the Smoke Green, as seen here?:
That would be a good classy look, especially with the gold hardware. I don't think he'll get the binding on there though.
Yes, that is the color and is it sweeeeet!
Yep. That color would make a great, low-key guitar, but if you really wanted to stand out-- metallic orange ftw
