I'd go full LP Jr,from the back,small control cavity and a small black pickguard avoiding all pups
salvaged American chestnut cap on western red cedar body, black binding
this wood screamed for an oil finish - many many more coats to go
1-ply black pickguard waiting
My vote would be to have just the knobs on top. That wood is just too nice to hide. I don't think it's busy at all. Once you get the PU's, bridge, and knobs on there, it will balance out nicely.
I redid part of my fence & gate not on the workbench but taking advantages of the nice weather we are having for November.
I'm making a roasted ash telecaster in the style of a rosewood one. I started with some 7/8" roasted ash (top one with some shellac):
Made a "sandwich" adding in some thin pine (was pre-thickness and seemed less wasteful than nice maple). Roughly chambered it for weight, in a way that will allow tummy cut if I want it. Made small dowel stubs to facilitate glue-up location.
Cut out, partially routed, sanded to the line:
My wife says it looks like a diner tabletop? It's not that bad! I will say the roasted ash cuts fine but is splintery and gives very fine dust. Weight with chambering is 5lb 8oz.
neck plate material... for the odd sized jobs... 55mm x 1M x 2mm , a strip cut off an offcut sheet from a local SS workshop..
I've been down there a few times over the years to bum a bit for one plate at a time and the guy is always happy to give me some.. chops it to size on the guillotine....
I need one for my bass build, I like to make a longer plate than a std tele/Pbass type as I make the pocket a bit longer to bring the neck back into the body a bit more...
I didn't feel good about bumming any more, so this time I got a strip off him and handed him a 20...he didn't protest.... all good....
I like to be square with the world.... good karma...
Initial set-up of my new $169 Grote:
This is a busy time of year for me has anyone ever tried dill pickle beer sticks?
not on purpose !!
They were so unbelievably good when my wife and daughter were packaging them instead of labeling them like they did for the teriyaki or jalapeno or andouille they just put their names on the packages. They also insisted we make a full 25lb batch of them. So for the year we made 80 lbs of jerky and 100 lbs of snack sticks .the andouille and pepperoni can be used for adding to stews or pizza.
60 lbs of corn beef in the brine to turn into pastrami next week. Then 265 lbs of different kinds of smoked sausage yet to make.That's for 2 extended families
Ah, man....pastrami. Yum...
Just finished up a PAF/Broadcaster set thats going in a ‘69 Telecaster. 6.8k ohm coil mismatched PAF. 10.7k ohm 43awg Broadcaster bridge. Wild scatter pattern breathes air into the smokey hot recipe. Results are a rock and roll pickup that cleans up well with the volume knob and can still twang. The Minniti Burst is just about ready for the time machine. Looked so good on the bench I thought Marty would love to see it! Lol
1930ish Stella and a little home made classical that needs a setup
Here is the story https://www.tdpri.com/threads/nogd.987776/
Started building a ported bass cabinet.
Finished up two sister guitars which will be going to two sisters (my nieces) for Xmas this year. I think they will be pleased!
You are the cool Uncle.
