A Macleod no less , my Dad's mom's family are McCarters . It's good to see the Tartan represented
Now you've set me thinking... a tartan version of a paisley Tele... hmmm.
+1. Maybe even leave it tuned to DADGAD.
Way too cool , the source of the following LINK. As you know, each clan has dozens of Tartans, depending on the time, what it commemorated, and who was mad at whom . These are a few from Clan Macleod,
Oh yes. Each branch of the family gets its own pattern. This one's ours.
Very nice, love that color and grain on the top. Nice workmanship.
This is looking great , love that stain , and the headstock decal is cool .
Pretty cool, I'll bet if anyone served, or was decorated in war, or otherwise honored, there's probably one or two more. Your right, it would make a killer "paisley"
Given that the average celt can start a fight in an empty room there must be hundreds.
And with the clan crest there's already a cool pre-designed decal for it.
The Danish oil has been going on this afternoon. Here's a shot after the first coat, and shows a much better view of the neck/body transition.
Plus a wee peek of the aforementioned scruffy border terrier lurking.
Very nice looking contours. Beautiful wood grain and color too. - The Dog - OK ship that mutt over to Tn and I'd clip him a bit, but my kids would love to have it.
I'm going to be in Ashland City at end of May, I'll see if there's space in my carry on.
Looks really good.
Thanks for the feedback folks.
Final coats of Danish oil have gone on today...
It is not without a couple of flaws but overall I'm really happy with how this aspect has turned out.
My Tele is ALWAYS tuned in DADGAD its so much different than most that i have ever seen!
I Freaking love the flowing lines of the back of this its just so smooth! the set through style neck the angled headstock the insane grain on the Mahogany and the tone bar you have one sexy telecaster my friend i would love one like this!!!
Oops sorry i forgot this is Sepele not Mahogany lol
I'm loving the lefty headstock....Someday maybe I'll be brave enough to use one!
Thanks for the feedback folks. Not much happening on the guitar, but I've been having a go at preparing bone for making a nut. Not a job for the squeamish, but I think it adds a little to the voodoo mojo.
I found what I think is the definitive process for preparing the bone, written by a museum curator, over at the Acoustic Guitar Forum.
I boiled the bones with a touch of detergent for three hours and then let them dry out.
Cut in half to check the internal structure and I selected this one. BTW: If you're thinking of trying this yourself, I hope you've got a strong stomach. The smell of bone being cut is not something I would recommend.
I cut four nut shaped blanks out of this (with enough left over to do another 6-8 blanks) and now they're soaking in Zippo lighter fluid, aka naphtha.
