yip, yip, Uhuh, Uhuh, briiiiiiiiiiiinnnnnngggggg, brrrrrriiiiiinnnnggggg
Dude, that is wicked looking! I built a basic one like this (its in pieces atm, so no photo), but yours is the real deal. Anymore info/pics?? You should have a build thread about this!
I was ask by a buddy of mine if I would ever consider doing a multi-scale build. Honestly, I hadn't until I played one. For this one, I took a page out of Stranberg's design and decided to go with the zero-fret as the perpendicular fret and then 25.5" on the bass side and 25" on the treble side...the radius is also like the Stranberg's...20". I am not going headless. Haven't decided on body shape or headstock shape yet...I might just have to come up with something.
Yup I have pics from the beginning, I'll put together a build thread if folks are interested in seeing the build!
Well I'd definitely like to see one!
Was going to do a thread for the one I built, but all the pictures I had have disappeared. I'll pop a pic or two up once I get it back together. Got some body work to sort out and gonna try fix the hs. Need to wire it up properly once completed, got a push pull pot for coil splitting, but couldn't get it to work initially.
I'm completely ignorant of this "multi-scale" concept - would you mind telling us a bit about it?
I've built several multiscales. First one was just an experiment, turned into my #1 for a while. Current #1 is also multiscale. I dig them, but they do have their own challenges.
"is that a ruger single action 6" I thought... yup. nice presentation/case. have one myself. might have to follow suit!
yes Ruger Single 6. I have two other cases I made Old Browning 22, Glock 34 9mm
4 pounds, 1 ounce. 2 piece swamp ash .
Still wonderin' what to do with it ...
Mail it to me, it’s too light for you.
wow, some beautiful stuff there! nice work.
2pc... is it 2pc pancake? I def do not see the join. "Noice piece of ash!"
Build a guitar?
I concur. Beautiful looking body. Don NOT paint it!
But it looks so plain just gloss clear. I'm thinking a butterscotch (not BSB) or something dark to give it SOMETHING!
The joint is very well done. I was impressed.
Here’s a few things on my workbench, or rather that I’m working on right now. Guit fiddle building has taken a back seat to courting a special young lady in Texas. She’s gots kids. The end table is to be a Christmas present for her oldest daughter—part of a reading nook for the studious young lass.
This is an art box that I drew atop. It’s customary for all the kids in my family that are into art. This one is for the youngest. She’s into unicorns, dragons and the macabre. I am doing another for the oldest too. I have more things doing I’ll post later.
It’s under shellac, so
Sorry for the glare.
is this wood with a patina? and did you make that patina yourself?
if so i would like to know how you did that?
just stunning, looks like old corroded copper
Squeezing in some finish work, clean up sanding, and experimenting with stain between work and weather
Yes it is, and yes I did. It’s layers of spray paint sporadically sprayed then sanded back to blend
The base is a navy krylon colormaster, there is an aqua color, and a satin sea glass. That kicker color is some rustoleum metallic rose copper. I sprayed a solid or mostly solid base then streaked in the other colors where I thought I wanted it. The copper kicker color I looked for areas I thought it would collect and laid in blotches.
Then I hated looking at it.
Let cure for at least a day then wetsand back with 400 grit to mellow everything out and hopefully you created some texture when spraying that will do magic things. A better techniique may be to use a brush to create texture in the intermediate colors.
I found a commercial patina called “bohemian blend.” That was the inspiration and I remember an old car show I think called Truckin’ with Stacy David. I can’t find it now, but they added patina to an old truck fender.
