I started it a few weeks ago but only got to rout it yesterday
On my bench currently is a neck getting fretwork done, which will go on the blonde body, which is in the middle of wet-sanding. Putting in two P90's, obviously.
Also on the bench are the guts of a tweed 5E3 Deluxe amp, the building of which will tax my patience and erode my confidence, but, at the end of the day, will hopefully give voice to the P90s.
Assembling my first body from scratch with a bought neck, painted with leftover paint from my new studio space.
That's awesome! Can you elaborate on the engraving process, or do you have a thread on it? What kind of tools/templates do you use?
A friend gave me this Tiesco that his brother brutalized! Sadly the stock pickups are gone and you can see into the body around the cheap replacements that he put in. The tuners are replaced with ones that say Gibson on them.
So, any votes on what I should do with this thing?
Send it to me!
That Makita is such a great choice!
Well, according to eBay those tuners are worth $40-50 a piece! So, my conscience said I should check back with the guy who gave the guitar to me and he'd like them as they're from his grandpa's LP that's still in the family. [emoji20]
Oh well, I think I'll put a large pickguard on it to cover the damage and find some more appropriate pickups... And tuners... And knobs... And gotta cover those nasty holes in the back...
Need an electrosocket and to finish the control cover. And do a full build report.....
Thanks. Barrel grip jigsaws are awesome. It's made in the UK, which is surprising.
But the big surprise is the Bosch Precision blades I'm using. I've got no more than 2mm of blade wander at the bottom of the body with these blades. Relief cuts aren't required, either. The last time I tried to cut a 45mm thick body with "regular" jigsaw blades, the blade deflected almost 30 degrees.
Very, very cool!
Speed holes. Apparently they make the routing go faster...
These... Off to the sprayer.
The top one is a baritone electric ukulele with a custom made TOM bridge, four strings.
and this came back from the sprayer:
Thats awesome Mete!
I've got the bobbins/magnets for the slanted firebird-style pickups for my Photon multiscale guitar. Still a lot of work left to do, but I finally decided to get rolling on them. Up next is winding (I will use a few layers of pickup tape over the magnet prior to winding, should help reduce wire breakage).
That is stunning! The guitar in the foreground is pretty nice too.
They are all stunning. Nice work!
That vase is stunning Mete! Just kiddin'... Very cool design.
