Holy cr@p, what a score!
Kid in a candy store stuff. Sooooo jealous, but congrats.
The Once in a lifetime major score! Kudos to you
Make a guitar for every kid on your street....
Got to work on a friend's early 80's MIJ Squier Strat yesterday. He was having some issues with volume drop and strange noises. Opened it up to find two ground wires had broken their connection. 5 min fix right? Yeah until I looked closer and saw the hack job someone had done along the way to replace the pickups. Solder joints were atrocious, so i took care of em
Routed the pickup cavity on my Streamer project. Got to get the routing done while I still have some flat spots left Next is a recess for the bridge, then it's back to carving the top.
A bunch of nice Caps - no, no PIOs from the 60’s
Too a timeout in the middle of my cajon build to make a Halloween mask for my oldest son.
5 gallon bucket, some screen and some LEDs...
We had a forced power outage for three days here in Northern California due to forcasted high winds which did not materialize...... Don't get me going. Therefore there was no workbench goings on BUT, I did remember the Pignose can be battery powered and thankfully Boss still makes battery powered pedals! Rob
Toe alert!!! Toe alert
someone had to say it.
Couldn't help it. Went through the bins to find some OpAmps that could work in the buffer. So while not in the workbench - it is on floor realized a A/B switch would come in handy for testing the “Garcia tiger unity gain buffer” - made a make shift A/B switch from a tea tin can. I guess LEO would be proud of me.
Result: Not all opamps are created equal Op07 and TL061 work well even on a drained block battery at 5.4v. The more upscale Op27 only crackles at that voltage. Still waiting on the LF356 coming in which I believe was in the original.
Coming from a state that doesn't allow Tru-Oil gunstock oil I must say I'm not all surprised. 24 hours in LAX to claim my cousins body was enough for me. Finding people like and Musikp there is my amazing surprise. That you guys are from the state as Governor Moonbeam. And this from a guy who DOES believe in alien life
Finally finishing up this tele I made last year. I had just finished wet sanding and polishing the paint when it took a nasty fall. I had to put it away for awhile. Now it's known as War Hoss.
Next up is the black limba firebird. I'm still learning how to fret, but I've been making necks. I kind of took a break from building and was doing a lot of touring this past year, but I quit the band I was in and now I'm getting back into it. Really looking forward to that mahogany reverse non reverse Firebird.
You'll like the LF356
Don’t get me going Dave....
Didn't mean to, had my way I'd have you all safe here in East Tennessee
Just about got this wrapped up. Just strap buttons and pickguard screws to go.
It’s a party at Dave’s!
made a boomerang today....
I play this 3/4 size acoustic a lot. It's fun. The edge gets a bit sharp under my forearm after a while, so I thought I'd make an arm rest as a project today....
looks like a mini boomerang.... gave it some d/oil to seal it a bit, came up ok..
I just bought an old "Musima multistar" -guitar, made in GDR (eastern Germany) and modified it with a new neck, a standard neckplate and a new color, because a friend of mine wanted to have a surf guitar. Here's some pictures of the project: https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/1WZ-s0fXWCsxdaLrbgMySFrD7DJyUtA7z?usp=sharing
On the last picture it is with my Fender. Now I started to work something out of guitar someone else started. It is a bit "wild", not a copy of anything?
Currently working on a Ric 330 build.
That's what happens when you forget to check your router depth. Oh well, it gave me an excuse to make a new tappa with fewer screws.
Now it's ready for sanding and finishing. The round dowel will get some knobs added to adjust the snare wires. Which reminds me, I still need to buy those.
