Allllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllriiiiiiiighty boys and girls.

this is my real men of genius competition entry thread. reason it has a codename is mostly for my amusement. But im not telling you what it is and im making sure any pictures of the progress are vague or blurry SO THAT, when it is completed, your socks will be blown off that much more from the sheer amount of anticipation that will be created by me hacking together this project within the next 5 days.


Yeah.. im just getting started. unfortunately ive gotten suuuuper busy this month and kinda had to put this project on ice for a while as i was working and.. starting 12 other guitar builds kinda takes up some time.... and doing my brothers hardwood floors this weekend....

anywho. im rambling. il try to find time to get this build done in time.

it will melt your face off.


right well.. i guess a couple pics are in order...

hmmm... Didn't the contest end the 12th?

But anyway, I really don't know... The pickguard throws me off. Maybe a half cardboard acoustic-electric? so you can fold it up and put it away when your done

I don't know, it says the 12th, but Comrade hasn't said anything since then, so I'm not really sure, it's up to him.

Either way, this build will prove to be interesting. i really don't have any idea...

Plexi glass neck guitar? That'd be really interesting! Although If so, I don't know why you're using a strat headstock what appears to be some flamed maple to clamp it, unless it's just a trick.

lol.. thats actually an offcut from that 140$ piece of birdseye maple...


my shop is kinda messy and i was rushing clamping this stuff so i can let it all cure over tthe weekend so on monday and tuesday i can MAYBE finish this thing.

i just grabbed whatever was nearbye as a clamping caul



$140 piece of birdseye maple? that piece better have been like 10 ft long.. i almost picked up a board that was i think 5ft long by about 8" wide and 1" thick from a lumberyard for about $55 bucks the other week.

GRAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh


so turns out epoxy wont hold plexiglass together.

the one thing i was certain would work is the only thing thats NOT working and im not sure if il have time to improvise a new idea withing the 35 hours i have left before i have to move out.

this is ontop of packing everthing i need for a year and at somepoint packing away the very tools i would need to build the neck.

I came here to say something but it seems to have been already covered...

And here was my newest train of thought

Extract -> Hummingbird (Gibson)
Hummingbird -> Acoustic
Acoustic + Plexiglass -> Plexiglass Acoustic
Plexiglass Acoustic = Win

hmm? Or does the codename not have anything to do with what it actually is?

EDIT:

It's a Ukelele but you get the concept!

Are you going to use that cardboard guitar as a mold and fill it with cement?

blaaaaaah

unfortunatly i don't think i can make this work in time.. there was a big issue with the neck pcoket.. it may or may not have cracked in half. =/

i jsut don't think my material can hold the tension at all.

im sure i could figure something out if i had more time, but i leave in 4 hours and im not even finished packing.

srry guys =[

yeah il be back. and i want to make it work too.. i have a few other ideas to make it happen, but timme is just severely running out.

i think istead of trying to bolt the neck on, i need to form the body around a big neck tennon type thing. but thats hard to do..


but watching everyone wriggle in anticipation is kinda fun.

so anyways, its close to working, with only 2 screws actually touching the ice, i was able to take a full swing without it falling off.. until it hit the brick of course.


so... its nto perfect. but il make it work for thanksgiving hopefully... i know a few things i did wrong.. il switch to a 'not cut' instead of a single cut lp, use a different neck attacthment method, and yeah..


i guess this means i can't win the contest.. but.. i assure you.. it will work.


and for those wondering:


Extract-Vanilla-Vanilla Ice- Ice Ice Baby- baby= Junior,

therefore, Ice Ice Jr.

Wow. An interesting concept, and I would love to try, but living in mississippi, I'm pretty sure it wouldn't work well.
