Im with the above guy, love the colour, not really digging the art work myself tbh but i've always been like that, never really like pictures on guitars.

Looks better than before. What kind of pickups? I'd assume something as brutal as vikings. Just regular black duncans would look pretty nice of that guitar. JB and 59 seem like a good set to go with it. Jb's imo only sound good on mahogany or other bassy woods.

That viking and the longship are not pictures, they are inlays. Should give you a whole new perspective

That's really good mate.

Even if people don't like it, they should at least admire how well it turned out. How long did that take you?

I love metal but death metal's just a bit too much for me. The most I can get into is serious-illness metal.

...With regards to guitar building, so get your mind out of the gutter you!

Gorgeous... However, I'm not sure I think the ship complements the "flow" of the guitar in the same way the viking does, so they do seem to pull the balance in two different directions, but it's a minor quibble, and I don't think most people think like me anyways... Awesome craft no matter what, though.

Doesn't matter what materials or techniques you use, it's still a picture...

Actully I'm planning to replace the original electronic. I have no idea what Gibson uses.

Thanks for the compliment. I know this type of guitar isn't for everyone. That's why there are so many different guitar manufacturers out there, because every one likes something different. Personally, I can't stand reliced guitars, but other people love them and that's ok with me. Being a guitar collector is sort of like being a dog owner, there is always a breed for you.

I don't know, I haven't really been keeping track. I know it took 1-1/2 hours to get that stain job right. Let me think about it; 4 hours to strip it down, 4-5 to fix the neck, 20 for the Viking inlay, 4 for the back inlay, 2 for the fretmarker inlays, 3 to redo the headstock plate, 4 to inlay the headstock, 3 to prep and sand, ummm quite a bit actually. Of course these are just estimates.

I couldn't find the first thread, until I posted the new thread, then I found the old thread, but somebody has already responded to the new thread, and so on, and so on ...

Those are good suggestions. I may change the pickups at some point, but not right away.

Just got done making the knobs for The Viking. The are the Viking runes for the letters T and V (tone/volume). The knobs are rosewood and the inlays are white mother of pearl. Another step closer.

Doesn't said pulling of balance symbolically reflect the life experiences and historical impact of the Vikings themselves?

Your guitar looks like a album cover :P Awesome job. Took me a couple of seconds to work out what the image on the back was but then i was just like, "Uhm...that is amazing!". Would also love to know how long it took you to complete all the inlays.

I don't like the wooden knobs idea. They would be awesome for another build but I think it overdoes the wooden look a bit. I'd be happy just to see straight forward black metal knobs.

black metal knobs.

But it's a Viking Metal guitar

Oh my god this is epic. Might I just say that the Viking on the back is really creepy
Your mother likes it ruff, Trebeck.

I'd love to add that I really like that finish on a "vintage" guitar being used for metal. By which I mean, if you're gonna be playing Viking or similar metal on a guitar design from the early days of guitars (SG, Les Paul, Explorer, Flying V), I love the tranny brown sunburst It gives the guitar this nice, aged, organic look that fits the vibe of the music perfectly.

Also: I suggest Gibson Burstbucker V's in that guitar, but with black bobbins. give it a nice Gibby-metal punch with a sweet, organic touch (ceramics don't belong in this guitar in my opinion).

this is incredible man, really impressive work
#33
^ Yeah

OR! WCR Icebuckers. They're modeled after the Burstbucker V, and are available with any magnet you want (would definitely do Alnico V in the bridge and II or IV in the neck). Or whip out an Alnico 8 for the bridge...

Alnico 8? O.o theres such a thing? lol

Yeah, and it's stronger than ceramic magnets. It has the tight low end of ceramic and output that puts it to shame, but the smoother highs and sweeter midrange of Alnico V.

Quote by telemetal
ah righto. cheers. thats pretty awesome. best of both worlds there

Exactly But string pull becomes a major issue, so they have to be lowered quite a bit compared to Ceramics or Alnico V, and you need something at LEAST as strong as an Alnico V to balance out for the neck pickup.

LOL. My Mom is French born and raised. One time a swore and then said, "Pardon my French." She screams back "That's not French!"

Makes me laugh everytime I think about it.

Thanks for the comments too.
