Thanks for all the support, I'm glad everybody thinks it's a good idea

The template has been finalized and shipped, and should be here in the next 3-5 days. Pictures will be soon after.

Alright, another update finally!
I got the template in the mail today. Now, hopefully this weekend we can go up to the guys' shop and get things started, and hopefully start ordering some hardware and electronics.

Not promising an update by this weekend because stuff usually comes up and my band is probably going to have practice, etc. No updates for the next 2 weeks or so DURING the week because I'm in the pit for our school's musical, and our practices are running after school until like 9:30. I can't wait till I get my license (Mid July..), then I won't be so dependant on having my parents take me places.

Anyway, enough about my life, on to some pictures. The lighting wasn't great so the quality isn't the best, but it was good enough for this. The light over the pool table makes everything all douchey-colored.

That shows the template by itself

That shows how the neck fits, kinda putting the body into proportion.


I wanted to take more than 2 pictures...Jamie Unden is the man. This picture really needs no description...it's pretty unnecessary.

Enjoy! Hopefully this will keep you occupied at least for a little while.

-Joe

upload them on photo bucket, and then you can edit the picture size to what ever you want.

(you may be able to do that on image shack but I dont use that any more)

Make sure to use a Kahler locking trem system! You won't regret it! You can buy the flatmount hybrid bridge so you don't have to route anything at all!

Haha I decided not to go with a trem on this one... Too much trouble for something I don't use a whole lot, and the cost is QUICKLY adding up (around $1300 so far, trying to cut costs without cutting quality at the moment).

I'm looking into new tuners, the Sperzel TremLok ones only come in sets of 6, so I'd have to buy 2 sets, and I simply can't afford that. The gold colored Gotoh and Schaller tuners are like $150 for 6, so even more for 7, and I can't afford that either (set on gold hardware now, it just looks too awesome on purple and black). Has anybody had any experience with these
Grover locking tuners? For 10 bucks a tuner for gold ones, these seem like a good idea, and saving money. Since I'm not installing a tremolo, the tuners don't have to be SUPER tight, but I want something with good quality that locks.

Also, any other suggestions for how to save a little bit of money? I found out that i need a level and dressing done on the neck...thats an extra $125 :-\

Trans Teal/Blue looks great; however, Trans Black FTW!

This thread needs more pics!

Alright, then I'll probably end up going with the trans blue (actually called Bahama Blue). The reason I'm not doing trans black is because..well it simply doesn't look as good as the blue. But theres still time to decide, so I'm not making any final decisions yet.

was there a reason you didnt use warmoth to buy your tuners? you can buy them individually so theres no need to buy 2 whole sets, just what you need on each side.
(they only offer the schaller and the gotohs individually though - personally id go with schaller)


go here: http://www.warmoth.com/hardware/tun...n=guitar_tuners



also very cool build - very interested to see progress!
