My bloodwood fretboard is awesome. Bloodwood chips easily but if you work with it right it's great. Very warm wood and even though it's a hard wood it has a rosewood like feel to it.

Its supposed to be partially buried in the guitar. Im accenting the entry points with a thin black line that will hopefully show this alittle better.

Kyle arnt you supposed to be trashed right now? You words are entirly too coherant... Fix that.

+1. I've played on a few bloodwood fretboards and it's a very nice choice. Looks awesome, plays well, sounds well. I've heard that it can be difficult to work with (noxious dust, aforementiontied brittleness, etc.), but all the finished products I've played on have left me impressed. Anyway, I'm not a builder. I just play the things.

Hey guys sorry I keep getting distracted. This past week I decided to build a wood bending iron so I could start practicing for my acoustic builds. Its a real simple design that uses an charcoal igniter to heat a 12" long piece of 2" steel pipe. I put a dimmer switch through the power chord which acts as a temperature control. I bent one side and got some scorching but with a few more tries I'll get everything dialed in and will be able start using nice woods. I also think I will be adding a piece of 1" pipe to make tighter bends since I plan on doing a custom shape uke before I tackle bigger instruments.




Now back to the anchor build. Like I said I'm redoing the neck, which is coming out much nicer, so some of these pics might feel familiar. As soon as I'm done typing this I'm heading over to the shop to work more so I'll have some more progress around 4pm today.

I should probably stop giving estimates of when I'll be posting more pics because I suck at it. Something always comes up!



Filled in the black line and did some spot filling for air holes that appeared in the epoxy

This guitar is beautiful. I would Love to have one like this. If you weren't trading for it, how much do you think you would sell it for? Just wondering.

You should make a cool case for it too

Dude, a guitar with a fouled anchor, how awesome.

Anchors Aweigh my boys
Anchors Aweigh
Farewell to foreign shores
We sail at break of day 'ay 'ay 'ay
O'er our last night ashore
Drink to the foam
Until we meet once more
Here's wishing you a happy voyage home!

Nice build, aren't you worried about the weight? I mean, LP are heavy, and you just added a freaking anchor in it....

I'm not sure how much I would sell it for. I'm still learning things and its not perfect but I think I'd ask for about $1000-1500. I really need to work on keeping track of my hours because I do this for fun but I plan on taking it more serious soon and need to know how much to charge to make it worth while based on time and materials.
