Alrighty so i already started this project last week but ill make a thread anyway.

I will not buy ANY more guitars until i do something with the multiple projects/parts i have laying around my house.

So lets start off! Up on the table first is my first sevenstring guitar which i played for about a week before ripping the neck to shreds...

here are some preliminary pics...





Here is the plan...

I bought a few feet 6130 fretwire, a neck blank made of Peruvian Walnut and a few Bloodwood fingerboards.

They should be here by next week. Until then, I'm going to strip the body of all parts and paint, then make a few modifications.

-Re-Route the neck pocket to allow a 0 degree angle neck.
-possibly route a binding channel all the way around the body
-plug the bridge and tailpiece holes

The final product will most likely be Orange in color, with a 25.5" scale walnut/bloodwood neck, Schaller Hardtail bridge, with a NON-reverse headstock design of my HM 6er...

Hardware has been stripped...

and this will be my inspiration for the paintjob..





lol jk...



ALSO if you haven't heard of the builder "DeVries", then you probably wouldn't get the joke....

UPDATE

i checked the status of the stripper today....

Final result : MASSIVE FAILURE
the the laquer was more "matte" but other than that, the stripper did nothing...



so we move on to plan B: HEAT!!!
this seemed to work great. i have both the front and back removed fo the paint. Now i will have to start sanding the primer off...




^This is a LOT of primer...


Front...


Back...


alright this is where things get difficult (and ugly).

the paint came off super easy, but the primer is stuff like glue...

i have tried heat, sanding, and now i am using a 2 way electric sander and its taking Forever...

Here is the backside...



TRUSS ROD TIEM!!!

first pass, half cut...



Full depth. this came out a LOT better than my last one... lol





*detective voice* There was Walnut here...



Pile of Projects...

I was bored this morning so i made this craptacular mockup...



I'm stretching my sanity even further lately, i just bought an 8 string neck for another project, so things may accelerate a bit slowly, but trust me, this will get done.
#15
^ oh thats beautiful!!



and im very curious to see what you are going to do with that 8 string neck you got for a stupidly cheap price

We shall see in another thread...


I have decided to pull a Keith Merrow and paint a sillhouette on my guitar...

Keith's...



My plan...

this is "Cubone", a pokemon. :lol:

The stock basecoat of orange plus a Black trace. There will be grey shadows and a white layer as well.



Approximate size in comparison to my strat body in the room...

I didn't think it could work, but now that I see the design coupled with the colour, that could be pretty cool.

I got new pickups today! V77 and V87

im surprised that these things have 4 wire leads. i guess i need to buy a 5 way switch.

#22
i bought these two small on-off-on switches that im going to use with these spare, no-name pups that came out of my FX. that way i can choose which coil im on for each pup! now i just need a guitar to put all that in.

Cubone on a 7 string!


But on a serious note, fun project coming along here...stripping paint sucks hard, doesn't it??

^4 HOURS.

either you are using fine grit sandpaper or you take your time.

I have sanded a strat body (clearcoat and all) down to the wood in about a hour and a half and the I fine sanded and painted..that all took me about 3 hours (not including drying time and clearcoat)

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"
