I wanna see the new design. Best of luck on the build. I absolutely LOVE Firebirds. Would own one myself if I wasn't buying a new amp.

Hey! I was 13 only a few days ago, and I didn't think robot tuners were cool! I feel deeply offended. Just trolling

I think this alberker is on to something. Ditch the entire guitar and build the Tower of London.

...Looking forward to the final product.

that's pretty much case in point though mate the firebird X exists only for young kids to drool over and rich men who have more money than guitar ability :p

And trying to dye with oil based paint. Any better tips on getting a black finish without spraying? The second one down, if I clean it up would be bearable, but I'd prefer a

Mississippi here, I can't spray either. I usually take black createx airbrush paint and mix it with a bit of water before rubbing it on with a balled up t-shirt.

I decided to be stupid and go for paint. Nitro may be easier, I dunno.

You can't tell because it still looks like shit, but I kinda sanded the sides. The glue is still on top because I never sanded it down either... that will get done...

By the way, new design: not all black. Chrome sides and chrome-middle thing that Firebirds have that's normally the neck because it's a neckthrough, but mine is bolt on. Going for an old black and chrome hotrod look.

Just came here to say

MOAR PICS



Keep it up man. Not such a fan of the guitar, but it looks hawt. That cut looks freaking great, all that's needed is just a nice finish IMO. Very surprised how good it came out being freehanded n all I would have no hope at all for something like that

EDIT: Oh and EMGs would be sooo sick :P

Well I didn't wake up 'til noon or so and didn't get out of bed until 2 (with a new girl, there's a certain song by Akon ft. The Lonely Island that describes what I did). It's been raining since then so no work done but I figured I'd get this bumped.

Anyone wanna recommend a way to smooth the edges really quick? As in the sides, since they were cut separately are not completely in the right shape.

I see what you did there

Hey, Wis. YOU SUCK! But, more importantly, does she? And now it seems you have a problem with too much wood. Life's a bitch, eh? Maybe if you put on some sandpaper shorts and strap that body to your butt you'll get it smoothed real quick.

OK. That was way over the line and I apologise. Good luck with your new girl and your build. I know which one I'd be concentrating on. And remember: pics or it didn't happen.

Yeah. Definitely time to go.

I'll admit, it'd be great if I could work on this more but I'm usually too busy.

Schools out which means I have a full time job. You try working 8-5 in Florida heat as a general laborer (digging holes, painting, loading/unloading trucks, etc...) without getting tired. I am modding one of my guitars ('89 Kramer Striker) quite a bit and getting a new guitar (to mod immediately) though if you wanna keep check in the EG forum in about 2 weeks.

Well, technically it could be done, but only in the same way that you could change a cat into a hamburger. It's an unpleasant process, and nobody is happy with the result.

The neck is the most amazing thing ever. When I got it, it had Seymour Duncan JBJ in the bridge, 2 shitty single coils. Changed JBJ with a DiMarzio Super Distortion, added in an EMG Afterburner, took out other pickups (going to add a Fast Track 1 in the neck, leave the middle empty). Of course there's coil split as well.

Not JUST the hardware will be chrome. The middle section (neck on a real Firebird, but only the part that goes through the body) will be chrome. The pickup rings and pickups will be black.
