Nice guitars man, and I like the all in one thread idea. I can't wait until I have enough money to start my build. This only makes me want to more.

Recently, I saw a Tele that had been made with a rosewood body. I can't remember where, really... But it looked great, and I can't help but think it would have a bright and unique sound for a Telecaster. I just thought I'd bring that up before you used up all of those wenge necks. It sounds like a great combination for aesthetics and tone, or at least worth the gamble. Though, I can only imagine that a slab of rosewood would be pricey...


Hell, maybe I'd buy it...

I've got a 5-piece wenge and maple neck sitting in my closet waiting until I find a chance to take my body woods to someone who owns a planer.

The neck is fantastic. Wenge is beautiful and the unfinished feeling is incredible. can't wait to hear it wonce the whole thing is assembled.

probably wood of some sort.. flamed maple? i unno.

this isn;t a real planned build.. jsut like.. one of those things that would be fun. but.. i have so many other builds that take priority in september.


i guess this is a good place to update what im doing with life.


In September i am going to be learning under a guy named Garren, of loucin guitars.

hes currently building guitars for Phil X, zakk wylde, and.... Dave grohl. so.

thats flippin awesome.

anyways, im going to be building a sweet acoustic and documenting the crap out of my experience there.

also in september im building an electric for a guy from "Said The Whale" theya re one of my favourite bands so im SUPER stoked to be able to do this.


also this year (from september to Jan-ish) you can probbably expect:

new legocaster neck,
neck/guitar builds for my first few customers as a token of appreciation for starting me out.
fanned fret heeless strat

well. i got an order for a cajon from the girls section of camp here.. i guess they were mad they never got to use mine but the youngest kids did.

so anyways. they ordered one.. and i built it in 2 days. woot.




and then within the past 24 hours, i got orders for 3 more of them.. so. thats pretty sweet.

il be making a bunch of them it seems during the next 2 weeks.. going to devise some jigs to make gluing them easier.. may get a biscuit joiner or something.
#58
that's cool mate, how much you charging for them?

Yeh, cause my current 2 guitar builds, 1 guitar make over, a guitar restoration, 2 amp builds, a self designed ts9 mod (admittedly almost done now) and a distortion pedal design and build from the ground up isn't enough to be going on with >.<

Think I may clear out some projects first

woah.. i've mever sold hotcakes before, but i think this is what it feels like.


in 24 hours afetr completing my first cajon sale, i have orders for 6 more.

and i had planned to build one for myself, and a couple for some friends of mine..

i need to think of a way to speed up the build process.. kinda like.. production line this thing.


the only time consuming part is the glue up.. getting things square and in place is tricky. i need to build some sort of jig that lines everythign up, so all i do is pop the pre-cut pieces in and clamp them.

any ideas?


alternatively i may just buy a biscuit jointer... maybe that would make things easy.
#65
I've got a few ideas, no idea how I would describe them or of they would work though :p

Biscuit jointer may be the best option :p

either a jig that sits on the inside, or like a frame that goes on the outside maybe?

like, a skeleton made of 2x2 or something that you put the sides into, then the inside framing or bracing holds the sides tight against the jig/big frame

if that makes sense. I don't even know how you're bracing the insides of these actually, lol
#70
If you wanted to production line the cajon and find a way of gluing it up square, try a dovetail jig for your router. Once your set up, its easier and more precise than the biscuit jointer and the joints pretty much always glue up perfectly square. Also you don't need to worry about the glue squeeze out gluing the cajon to your frame
Was lacking a decent sig. Still is.
#72
there is a cajon in the shop where I work thats dovetailed myrtle wood. (disclaimer: myrtle wood is not exotic where I am from, its everywhere) its very pretty.
no sir away a papaya war is on
#73
Good luck with the cross bracing then, can't really help you with that. Also, if you get the inclination to do dovetail joints by hand, don't :P

Hey! First time looking at one of your threads. I like the work! Just curious, do you take custom orders from anyone? If i PMed you some specs, think you could give me an estimate? I've been wanting a custom guitar for a long time now haha. Still, love the thread!

Goddamnit Jason you're always getting tools that I need/want before me
Congrats though
Just call me Julius, J, etc.
Taking an Internet break for a while, will come on when I can.
