    Been messing with this thing for some time now. Body pics are before clear. Was hoping to get it delivered for Christmas but didn't make it. [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    Thanks, I do all the woodwork at home and used to do the spraying in as plastic spray booth in my garage. Last year I got a job in the violin shop at the resurrected St Louis Music, my boss doesn't care and it's a lot better, I'll try and get some pics for you when we go back on Thursday.

    Used to live in St. Loius and hand several of their old product lines in the 90s. What are they producing now?

    We Have Knilling Violins where I work, Alvarez Guitars (without the Yairi's), Austin Guitars, Dixon Drums, Blessing Brass, and lots of accessory lines. Loud Tech kept Crate, Ampeg etc, we see how that went for them. Still at 1400 Ferguson Av.

    On Friday it will be 195lbs for 6 reps . The bench press that is . I’m doing a program to build me up to 225lb bench or more.

    Great job on that one piece bridge and stepped for intonation too, awesome work. That guitar looks great.

    Cool coils. Are you putting them together like a PBass set or all in parallel?
    Great job on the bridge.

    I sure did. I started with some basic dimensions from the baby grand, and changed to taste.

    Nice!! As a kid, I had on old steel runner Radio Flyer knock-off much like that. It's a wonder I didn't kill myself on it...

    Started working on a hollowed body design that has the belly cut and upper fret relief on the horn...I think I want to primarily focus on lighter-weight bodies with interesting tops, so this part of the design will work for "any" Tele-type setup for various pickups, etc, since that's accomplished after the cap is applied to the core. The back-side gets cut first and then the hollowing is done after flipping the blank over the centerline...indexing pins are used for alignment. I created a 3D model for the hollowing on the left/upper side instead of using step routing because it will be visible through any kind of "f-hole" should one be cut on the top and a smooth contour is nicer looking, even if it's painted black.
