He has claimed a new victim.

Here is exhibit A, my first guitar body. a total and complete failure never fit to be anything musical.. so they said..





and with it was discovered an interesting envelope filled with interesting things..




I will return from the shop soon, colleagues.

I hate to break it to you, but you've made the scale length for an electric guitar WAY too short, and I don't see where your tuners are going to go?

Tehehehehe. Seriously though, I love electric violins. Some of the tones you can get from a distorted violin..
#24
indeed. its a shame my last one never worked out. i tried going all piezo with it, this will be all magnetic.

edit- i hear they're comfy as can be.

if i remember, one of Steve Vai's violinist uses one? i cant remember if its the asian girl or the white guy. its one of them.


one day i may fret it like that. lets say that i have a trick up my sleeve to allow me to do it. that and what im using the neck for.

maybe one of you guys can atleast guess that one?

Is your trick the stewmac fret calculator? Hmmm... as for the neck... I really have no idea, maybe you're just reusing it, but it seems I need to think outside the box some more.

the trick is an adjustable bridge. thanks to the dude who makes the guitar-viol, im "borrowing" his design.


the back of the neck will be my new fretboard. the skunk stripe and all. walnut makes a fretboard just fine for my violins.

i think it'll look pretty kickass with a nice finish.

So what does fretting it have anything to do with an adjustable bridge?

makes it easier to get it 100% perfect. remember what a normal violin bridge looks like. the string rests go straight across.

now look at any guitar you own thats properly intonated, i have a strong feeling all it's saddles are not lined up perfect.

Aah, I wasn't thinking about normal violin bridges. How many strings will yours be, what scale length (is it needed if it isn't going to be fretted?), and what are you using for pickups?

not sure the scale length in inches, but the distance between the nut and the bridge will be 328mm.

im just going with 4 strings since ive honestly never really played much violin, and i finally want to make an instrument fit to learn it on.


pickups will be all magnetic, more than likely spun by me unless another builder wants to try it for some experience. i tried piezo in my first violin and it failed miserably.
