Anthony put a deposit down in mid 2004. Since then, he has travelled the world, lived in a few other countries for work, and asked me to put his order on hold. The neck was rough cut and inlaid, and body glued up. He later changed his mind from Flame Maple top, to Spalted Maple top, so the body I had rough cut so far became the "Guitar Show Blue DC" built in Oct last year.

Awabi inlay material





Laminated Flame Maple neck. Two necks from this lot...





Ebony pinstripes... you may have seen me do that before...

Fast forward four years. Anthony is back in Australia temporarily, and is moving this month back to the UK. Can we get the guitar done before he goes? YES!

One piece Brazilian Mahogany



Spalted Maple



Chamber for weight relief and slight tonal adjustment.

Suckers... Ormsby himself got first as well as second. I could've had first, but I could see this was gonna be a series so I didn't want to ruin it with an irrelevant combo-breaking post.

This will be sweet!

Hey whats the thickness of the pin stiping you use on those necks? Love that effect.

That spalted maple is ****ing sick, I take it the vacuum chamber is to keep the two pieces together while the glue dries?

My lord. I came all over the place when I saw that spalted maple.


That's how it makes me feel, I just couldn't put it into words.

Question: Perry, do you do compound radii to get the binding at the same height all the way down the fretboard, or do you just plane the fretboard slightly wedge-shaped? Or is it something else entirely?

chuck, i agree with you so much that it hurts.

damn its lookin good. i feel like i know you now because i just watched all of the multiscale youtube videos lol. good ****. yeah how did you do that ebony pinstriping? thats sick!
#22
Ebony pinstipe is veneer between the laminations, 0.7mm thick.

Vacuum press is used to glue down the top.

Pikka... i dont plan or use any special technique, it just magically comes out perfect ever time

That's an awesome piece of spalted maple

Also, the white stuff on the edge of the neck, that's just plastic binding right? I always wondered how that worked
#25
Will be carved top. White around the fretboard is plastic binding. Considered using flame maple, but it would have been too much.

Off to a private party with Alice In Chains tonight so no updates, woo hoo...

So it's just about taking your time with the radius sanding? I just see lots of fretboards where the edge is taller at the headstock end because of the way a standard radius works out. Would you consider that sloppy?
