Specs :
5 piece body, curly maple/bloodwood
5 piece neck. curly maple/bloodwood
all chrome hardware :
gotoh floyd rose
direct mounted dimarzio Fred in the neck and undecided bridge pickup
He wants 27 frets, but i am going to convince him otherwise
25'' scale length
gotoh 16:1 tuners
one volume one tone, 3 way selector switch
all sorts of my favorite carves
bolt on neck w/ AANJ

the 8/4 wood for he body has the most extreme damn curl ive ever freakin' seen
the neck has medium curl, but its still quite noticeable. the whole guitar is made out of soft maple to help with the weight, however the neck will be 3 pieces of quartersawn maple, and 2 pieces of quartersawn bloodwood, all with the middle pieces flipped, so im thinkin its going to be nice and tough.

this will take priority over my two stock guitars i have going, the sapele telecaster and the walnut RG, so this one will probably be done by next week or so, shooting for next friday if the parts order goes swiftly.

pics once i prepare the stock
this guitar will sell for $900~
im workin' too cheap damnit.

You CAN play anything with anything....but some guitars sound right for some things, and not for others. Single coils sound retarded for metal, though those who are apeshit about harpsichord probably beg to differ.

Nice wood! Can I touch it?
Then there's this band called Slice The Cake...

Bunch of faggots putting random riffs together and calling it "progressive" deathcore.
Stupid name.
Probably picked "for teh lulz"

LP Addict that is some sexy maple grain.
May i ask what you payed for such a thing?
#16
wow! that wood is gettin me all hot and bothered errrr uhh, i mean, I cant wait to see this thing progress. It better not get pained over.
#18
900?!?!? Wow that's cheap. For the quality of your instruments, you could charge 1200 easily.

when u set a price do u ever like barter for it or do u set the price (or do they)
cause i think a more experienced luthier than i would say taht $900 is chump change for a build of the stature i have seen from u before.
wood looks great though
how much did that chunk o maple cost you?

Thats ridiculous, you may as well just give it away.
#21
well in today's US economy, if i sell guitars for under 1,000, i will keep a steady business, and 1,000 dollars a week is a **** load of money to a teenager, that enables me to not have to have a ****ty job and all. the 8/4 maple was 35 dollars, the 4/4 for the neck (i bought a 17 foot long piece of it by 7'' wide) was 27 dollars.

I wish i could find a lumber yard around me... everyone always finds such great deals... so if i don't find one soon ill be PMin you LP

Nice vibe you just put out there. Its like daddy just hit mommy at the dinner table and we all still want to eat.
#25
How many hours do you put into each build?
It might be interesting to figure out your hourly wage.


Of course, it could be depressing as well, trust me.

That is a really nice fingerboard!

Hey LP, are you too busy to sell me stuff? I want to know whether or not I should hold off on e-mailing you.

That first shot you have of the body gluing up is craaaazy. I didn't quite see why you thought that stock had such nice figuring from your first pic, I thought it was great, but not mind blowing. But then I saw that shot of it being glued up, and well.........

.....holy crap.

Beautiful wood you have there! I'm excited to see how this progresses.

Sorry I haven't been on much in the past few months. I missed out on a lot, I gather. I've been hustling to make money doing repairs and setups, and not building anything. Coming back here to see you guys working is motivating me to find the time.

If you're cranking out a guitar a week at that price and you don't have to pay for hardware... hell, you can't complain. Just be sure you feel you're getting paid enough for your time.
All my photobucket pics are dead so no links to my guitar build threads.
