DAMMIT JASON!
Stop building so much!
haha, i really wish i had the time and tools to build so often.
I envy you.

This should be cool though. I love fanned frets. They play so sweetly.

Yeah, I get that. About 5 minutes after I had posted that I realized it was from the legocaster. Either way, hope this build turns out good.

So the cut up strat that’s been featured in so many of your threads is finally being built in to a guitar. Sad to see it go, happy to see it being built haha.
#20
I'm a bit iffy on the straight bridge humbucker, I don't think it's gonna sound so great, pretty much like a middle humbucker on the low strings by the time you fit the angled bridge. But if it's just to satisfy curiosity then fair enough, it's something to look into for later builds though

i normally hate light colored fretboards but for some reason, picturing a white guitar with gold hardware and frets, that Birdseye would DEF look better.
Douglas Spad with EMG 81x's
Epiphone LP jr. with EMG 89 split coil, alot of upgrades
Rig:
Power conditioner, Hush, ART Quadra/FX Reverb (all 3 in a rack), Peavey XXX, 2 Mesa 4x12 cabs.

Well depends what kind of tones you want out of your guitar.. more snappy, sharp kinda sound, quicker on the attack, sharper attack, or something beefier, richer.

From an aesthetic point of view I'd go for the MRW. Also, thing is with the MRW it's got a very high taptone, but also is pretty flexible for its density. Also lighter than the Maple I believe.

im really not concerened about the minimal difference to tone the fretboard will make.


purely aesthetics.

also not really worried about weight. cuz.. yeah.. doesn't really matter tons.


edit: HAHAHAHA.. i made a pun.

maple is nice, but not for this IMO

It's pretty hard to find someone as hardcore as Tom. The race for hardcore supremacy would be pretty close but i think Tom's got his nose just in front for now...

If you were painting it black I think I'd say maple, but since it's white the maple will just blend with the body. Rosewood would look a lot better in my opinion.
