Pickguard test cut out of foamy material whose name is forbbiden here
Was too cold to work out in the shop today, so I rewired my blue Tele.
The switch was getting dodgy, wire from the jack was too short to easily flip the control plate over to work on, tone control was not working well.
switch works 1st time all positions. I wired the tone control to bridge pickup only and used a 500k pot, it now has a very nice sweep. The lead from the jack is long enough to easily pull the control plate, and the guitar is also quieter now! All in all a successful couple of hours
Maybe I missed a post but that looks like a Fender Lead. What are you planning on using for pickups?
Original Lead pickups...somebody butchered original body and pickguard, so I've made a replacement
fixing up little Bluey.... nice guitar with a pre amp in it.... sounds ok for a cheap guitar..
the bridge was stuck down with pva glue on the shiny finish paint and it had steel strings on it.. no wonder it let go... also a brace had popped off one end letting the top sink.....
I scratched the paint off under the bridge and glued it back on with the two screws that were already in it.... it should stay on there a bit longer now.... fixed the brace... good to go...
my clip on tuners don't like the thicker headstocks of these nylon guitars, so I modded it....
Nice! I like decent cheap guitars
Everyone should have a 3/4 nylon string guitar hanging around... they're fun to play watching tv, etc.....
easy on the ears and fingers....
Several years ago I bought an Agile Les Paul that is really great, I paid less than $200 because they said it was a B stock, there is nothing wrong with it.
Fixed my random stopping issue on my CNC, a week ago. Found it was a faulty E-Stop. Ordered a new on, & installed it.
Finally got back to the CNC today.
From software design to styrofoam prototype.
Upper narrow route around edge, is the inlay for the spruce top.
As you can see, the lower pocket route has material still there, so the rear belly-cut won’t route a hole into the inner pocket route. I’m still scratching my head on how to profile the inner, to match the profile of the outer, without cutting through to sides of the top.
Not much material to remove, so a small thumb plane can get rid of that pretty quick.
Taking baby steps, but coming along nicely. I just hope the walnut will route as nice.
Can't you copy the tummy contour and back surface from the outside. Then paste it say 3/8" higher to the inside and then trim it to the sides?
Yes, I have done that, but just trying to figure out how to tell it to not cut into the sides.
I’ll play a dit today.
Little profile contouring
You'll get it, I have faith
Working to achieve this as well today.
Arm cut on my original Acoustic-Tele.
Have to use the Moulding Toolpath, as I did with the belly-cut. But has to be in reverse.
But first I have to plow the 6”/15cm of snow.
A bit of wiring, a bit of a test-drive to get a feel for what a bass looks like. 51 p-bass with a few twists..
does remind me on the cemetery beneath Paris
This is just a stunning finish and boosts the wood in a beautiful way.
does is get a clearcoat, ore does it has one already?
