Hand engraved heel plate for Guitarnut
see his build thread for the details.
Nice Mark...that must be pretty tough to do....
Thanks, Marty - the longer straight lines are always a challenge, and not knowing what's under the plating can be troublesome too. Just hope Mark likes it enough to use it.
Just my first build.
made decent progress this week:
That looks really cool! More pics!?!?!
Hey thanks, Mark!
Here are a few more...
Ah, the blades look very clean!
NICE GUITAR!!! How about some sound clips? Is the bridge pu another Barncaster creation as well?
I had my bro-in-law cut me an Ash tele body, with armrest and bellyrest, and I'm going for my take on the Esquire. It is already sealed and saned, ready for primer. The materials list goes like:
Reranch primer and Daphne blue
A fender maple neck I recently got
GFS Fatbody tele bridge pup
RS Guitarworks Modern Esquire wiring (cocked wah mod)
Aged white pickguard
All hardware in chrome
I'll be reusing a set of "vintage" style tuners, knobs, and top loading bridge. Although I am tempted to get a Bigbsy in there.
My take on the Esquire will be a hard hitting twanger... where country lost its "o" and all that remains is... well, you can figure it out. No cleans from this guitar, it will always be an overdriven machine.
Right now it is a bunch of parts, and some I don't have here yet. Will pick up the body from my bro-in-law house this weekend.
I LOVE it!
Working on a sapele Tallahatchie model. The neck blank is walnut. The body is a little over 7 lbs, but I can't bring myself to cut into it to lighten it. I'll just have to live with it being heavy on my shoulder.
I'm pretty happy with how they turned out. Thanks, Rob (and Mark).
Thanks (again), Mark. Yeah, the bridge is one of Rob's stacks.
I only have this one clip so far and it's only for patient and longsuffering....
Sounds great...soulful picking too. Love the guitar!
Hey thanks, Bill!
I really dig that Tallahatchie too.
I would have to chamber it, though....
That thing sounds great and your playing is awesome! Beautiful tones and guitar. Thank you for sharing that clip. Bridge stack is sounding great Rob. Ol' Barncaster is headed for legendary status and he's almost there. Great piece again.
Yeah, Rob's got it goin' on in the winding arts.
That's gonna be awesome.
I really dig that outline.
