Eddies right, the wider is a sewing machine that I tore apart. To buy a winder its like 400 bucks or more and I made this for less then 40 and it works well. If you want to make one just google it, there is all kinds of info about how to make them, and of course feel free to ask me anything and ill do my best to help.

Sent the guitar to the shop to be cleared today hopefully Ill have it back within a few days. I'm just gonna leave you guys with a little teaser now. I put some naptha on to show what the woods should look like with a finish. These will be the last pics of the guitar until its complete.



When I make a new jig or come across one that works really well for me I like to show it off with the hopes that it can help someone else who might be having the same difficulties as me. Up until now I have been cutting the fret board tapper free hand and spending a lot of time sanding it to get it perfectly straight. Today I made this



Its a board with two hold down clamps from rockler and a rail on the bottom that guides it through the saw blade. Its zero clearance so what ever you line up with the edge of the platform will be cut. You simply mark your fretboard taper, line it up on the platform, clamp, and cut. Cuts a perfect taper every time in seconds.

Ran into a slight problem today. I got the guitar back from being cleared and as I was putting the hardware on I realized the pickups don't fit at all. I used a template for a humbucker with out a cover and since these have covers it doesn't fit. I now have to make the cavities bigger which is not that hard but I'm going to be freaking out trying not to mess up the finish. I'm going to tackle this tomorrow and hopefully not ruin everything, wish me luck!

Hey guys I'm running late for work but I promised pictures so here she is all strung up!





It plays and sounds fantastic even before I gave it a proper set up! I'm very happy with it and almost sad to give it away haha.

Ill post the other pics I have that led up to the finished product tomorrow and a friend of mine will be taking profession pictures within the next few days. I will also try a get one of my friends who can actually play guitar well to do a demo for me so you guys can hear it for yourself.

HOLY ****. This is nothing short of INCREDIBLE. Wow. Amazing build. Why do you have to give it away though? And what's the scale length on this thing?
