Theres been a change in schedule. Sometime after July 4th, we're going to go in to do all of the cutting and routing. The guys we're working with have a project they have to get finished, and don't have time for much extra work. There is a good side to this, though. We're going in on two consecutive days, one day to get the body blank made with the top glued on and everything, and maybe a bit more. The very next day, we're heading in to do all of the cutting and routing, and then I'm going to get a good idea of what exactly I need to do to sand out all the bevels well and do the finishing. This should be taking shape very quickly. I'll definitely take loads of pictures.

More news: we ordered pickups last night, as well as the schaller strap locks. Dimarzio Blaze 7 Neck in the neck position should be here in a couple days along with the strap locks, and the Dimazrio D-Sonic 7 should be here a few days after that (was backordered for like 4 days). More pics soon!

MORE PICTURES! Finally, I feel slike something is getting done. The Blaze 7 Neck and the Schaller Strap Locks came today. The D-Sonic has been backordered further until July 4th, so it should get here a few days after that. I thought the parts would be here Friday, but sadly, they weren't. I almost thought they wouldn't be here today either. I saw the USPS truck drive by across the street, and watched it keep going, not stopping at my house. As my friend and I stepped outside to walk to Sonic, a package sits on my porch! I was relieved. Now, pictures you've (hopefully) been waiting for!

Here is the box for the Straplocks. Looked different than I expected, but made no difference to me.


It took me about 10 minutes to figure out how to take them apart and how to put them on a strap. When I put them back in the box, I saw the diagram on the back -.- Needless to say, I felt pretty stupid.


Here's my black and creme Blaze 7 Neck pickup. The hardware wasn't in there that sloppily...I just forgot to take a picture of it before I put it back in the box.


Here's a good (upside-down) picture of it still sitting in the plastic container (which was way too hard to take off and put back on without feeling like you're going to rip it apart, but most people would probably be ready to put the pickup on once they took it out. Not me, though. I wanted to see the whole thing.)


Here is the pickup on the carpet with the wrench and screws.


After July 4th, I should have another few pictures of the D-Sonic 7, then hopefully soon after, heading to the workshop!

Comments are welcome.

-Joe

Hahaha...Me either. If everything had gone according to schedule, the body would be cut out and everything would be almost finished. Only in a perfect world though, I suppose. Luckily, once we go into the workshop, it'll start to shape up really quickly.

Everybody likes pictures...
And I like taking them because I get more views

I got some more hardware recently...the bridge came in the mail a few days ago, and we went out to some stores today and bought knobs, bolts for the neck, pickup selector switch, and ferrules. I only have 12 ferrules, I need 2 more still. The D-Sonic 7 and tuners are still in the mail. Now all I need are some recessed washers, flush-mount imput jack, a graphite nut, and some shielding tape. Oh...and a body -.-

By the way, should I do a simple Gibson-style placement of the flush-mount jack, or do it on the back, a la Ormsby's "The Vine"?

Heres some pictures for you guys:

This is the template with all of the parts laid out on it (blurry)


Closeup of the body, same layout (blurry again)


Here's the push/pull tone with the black dome knob on it


Here are all the pots with the dome knobs, and the pickup selector.


And one more shot of the pots / knobs / selector


Bridge and top ferrules


And my MIA D-Sonic 7
PS does anybody know where I'd get a bride to recess? >.>


Hopefully that'll keep you guys occupied for a little while longer.

-Joe

I'd do a piezo, but it's my first guitar and I'm trying to not spend a whole lot more money

Although, since re-doing a clear finish wouldn't be incredibly hard, I might go in sometime and put in a piezo and a switch for it. Then again, might be too much work.

Btw, I feel weird having every other post in this thread be mine (just about), but I feel weird when I don't respond to whoever posts

Updates, woot. Actually, it's just pictures pretty much. Hopefully this weekend or next weekend we'll be going in to get the body cutting and routing done.

My tuners arrived while I was on vacation, and my friend Nick (castellorizon) picked them up and held them hostage, that bastard. Also, top ferrules and shielding tape arrived. My D-Sonic is still MIA... no word from MusiciansFiend on when it will be here/why it's late (supposed to be in stock July 4th...but as suspected because it's MusiciansFriend, it wasn't in stock.)

The tuners are Gotoh SG38s.


Different angle


Here's a closeup of the headstock with the tuners and truss rod plate...not sure if I'm going to change that plate or not, it looks cool in black.


Slightly blurry picture showing the headstock with tuners and truss rod plate, with a bit of the neck.


Here's the ferrules and the corner of my bag of crack.

(actually it's not a bag of crack if you hadn't figured that out, I had to order 2 sets of ferrules because there are 7 strings. I now have 12 back and 12 front ferrules -.-)


COMMENT OR DIE

I don't think it's being CNC'd, we're just going to bandsaw it and then clean it up. I also think the routing is going to be done by hand as well, because they were talking about making jigs for it. Thanks for the props.
