chestnut capped project moving along.... 2 Vols 1 Tone
Yes indeed tnt423 that book matched cherry back is fabulous!
It's bad when the magic smoke escapes. Congrats on a fix that most folks wouldn't attempt!
Yes, thanks. I've done a lot of guitars with cherry and as long as it's semi-hollow or weight relieved it works out well.
Thank you! actually it's not bookmatched it's endmatched, fakes bookmatched ok I think. GTot more clear on it now, heres the front.
Love the Blue top and the Sound hole design.
And they are done. Fully QC-ed
Mutrons all over Northern California are rejoicing! Well done!
My Assistant Luthier-in-Training was a very good girl this year and asked for a crib for her baby doll...
...at the same time our neighbor was ditching this cheap made-in-Malaysia side table.
Side rails coming together. I splurged for 1/4-inch dowel rods, so I've got all of $1.74 into this thing. Cleats screwed down instead of clamps, one of the reason I like having a cheap bench.
Sub-assemblies ready to glue.
Two coats of Tried-and-True Oil.
From Santa's workbench to Mrs. Claus's sewing machine for the mattress and bow. Ho ho ho...
I hope she has as much fun playing with it as I did making it!
That is a very fine job of wood salvage! And a happy little one!
I’m an Amateur Radio operator.
I maintain all our repeaters in the area up here. So I’ve dabbled with electronics a bit.
Troubleshooting is process of elimination, break it down in small areas to diagnose the problem.
Interesting & challenging. Usually simple things.
Started my first guitar build. Maple burl and epoxy for the body. Yes, unconventional. Will probably grab a donor Tele for all the parts (including a neck.)
Today, routed the body, sanded the back, and built a mold. Probably won’t be pouring epoxy until after the holidays.
Thank you for your kind words.
That is some real pretty wood, Mike; absolutely beautiful grain!
Where are you getting the chestnut?
When I was a youngster, I lived on Chestnut Road - named for the profusion of chestnut trees that once grew in the area. But, all that was left of those trees was dead or dying. This was in the 1950's in Ohio.
Started another guitar today.
Used an HH Zane Guitar body, & a Vintage Fender neck I had on my first build. Replaced that Fender neck with a DIY cherrywood neck to match the body. So it was sitting around. I bolted it the the Zane body this evening.
Would look nicer with a rosewood fingerboard, but had the neck sitting around.
I have som Seymour Duncan P90 Fat Cat’s I’ll put in this.
psss… cmere, shh (what the heck is he doing? what is that?
Gorgeous work and build! I see a a real spray booth hiding in the background? Love to see full pics of it!
Very cool! Can't wait to see the progress!
These are some mutant Jerry Garcia Tiger Buffers. They keep mutating further away from the original with every batch.
Once upon a time CJ, there was a nine fingered guitarist who had chemically tapped into the universe and made some amazing music with his merry band. At one point, he discovered a wondrous effect, the MuTron, that was notoriously hard to drive with his Strat’s b and e strings. Fortunately he was surrounded by chemically enhanced electro technical wizards who quickly whipped up a little buffer derived from an old Urei mic amp and installed it in the Strat. Then the electrons flowed with such force from that Strat that the mighty MuTron was tamed and was bent in perpetuity to his will’s shakedowns and other cosmic excursions. That was a long time ago.
Now there exists a few electro technical wizards in the dark forests who remember those heady days and by their sublime abilities will bring back a little of the old magic for those with eyes to see, ears to hear, fingers to callous, and wallets to empty.
