Thought it would make an interesting topic:

If you're like me you've probably a bunch of potential projects and mods in your head or on the backburner that haven't come to fruition due to lack of time, money, tools, equipment etc. And some people may never hear or see...

It'd be interesting to see what people would like to do, whether it be a mod, build, paintjob or anything.

Here's mine:

Black sg build with cross inlays and custom headstock inlay.

Airbrushed RG

Bass build

Electric Mistress pedal.


Post your ideas and potential projects.

Guitar Wise:
Build a Telecaster
Build a Les Paul
Design a G-bender system
Buy tools to do all of the above

Electronics
Design a discrete CA3080 that doesn't sound like crap
Design a submicron CA3080 replacement and test it out... find a company that wants to buy the design
Design a pickup winder
Buy tools and a desk for when I move to my new place

Pickups
Wind pickups... lots of pickups
Experiment with magnets to try to use less wire to get similar output
Be awesome

Amplifiers
Build a heead cab for my new amp
Rebuild old Fender Brown Deluxe
Design and make a parts sheet for Jason's amp
Find parts for the Little Tiger
Build my HiFi Amp
Build a rocket with reverb
Find a machine shop to make multiple chassis

Effects
Design overdrive, distortion, delay, chorus, boost, and wah circuits
Build them

Others:
Graduate from college this semester
Pay rent
Start working full time
Save for wedding....

As you can see.... the others take up a lot of my spare time and money...

I need to finish my shit.

You mean that green guitar? It'd be great to see that done.

Yeah, i'm the same with the money problem, plus I change my mind a lot and most of my stuff will probably never happen by the time i do get the cash. I saw your tele project though, hope to see that finished.

Edit: Holy crap ^

Acquire, and upgrade, a Vox AC4TV.

Put GFS electronics and Wilkinson bridge in my Strat.

Build another Superstrat, this one with a heavier-sounding bridge pickup and a thinner neck than the last one.

Somehow sell my disastrous Frankentele.

Learn to file frets.

Sell all my pedals (except my wah) and board and build a new, tiny board with 3-4 pedals (versus the 8 I'm using now)

Build a Matchless Lighning clone...?

Most important:
- Finish building my cab (rough cut has been done, but that still needs sanding down etc and screwing together).
- Finish building my head (almost done, just needs a bit more soldering work to be done).
- Finish the 5 string bass (wood has arrived, along with 4 tuners. Design done bar the headstock).
Not so important:
- Swap out pickups on my bass
- Re-do the clear coat on both of my strats (I used the wrong paint, and its waaaaaaaaaay too soft unfortunately).

These are all on hold due to a-levels, starting in less than a month. Then i'll have 3 months before uni to complete the top three and hopefully, money permitting, complete the bottom two as well.
