So... When's the blue dye going on???
Quote by Spaztikko
Imagine the part of the ballsack where occasionally old poo sticks to the pubes and hardens, and you then have to pull out, but as an amp. That's an MG.


Greatest quote of all time?

I think so...

Nice carve! Did you do those with rasps? They're super smooth for a rough!

Shwiggity.

Mick- I don't think the Blue would go well with the red and browns, plus trying to keep it from bleeding into unwanted sections would be a nightmare at this point.

Def- I use this guy right here for the bulk of the wood removal :

I get pretty close to my marked lines and then I clean it up with a couple different size sanding blocks and a sharp scraper


Cleaned up the body and got the rear carve done today

marked out


and cut



I'm not happy with the fret board. Using the 8in stewmac radiusing sanding blocks has left me with a board whose thickness varies from one end to the other. Rather then fighting to get it back to where I need it I'm going to take a day to make a router jig and save me a lot of time and frustration in the future.

I think I'm going to do a version of this:

Awesome build. The anchor and chain inlay on the body look really great.

I'd happily commission you to build my guitar.
If I had the money...

Anyway, looking absoluely awesome so far. IMO not using a really dark transparent blue is sacrilege though.

Hey guys sorry about the hold up, been workin on some other stuff recently. I'm not satisfied with the neck and fretboard so I decided to redo both of them to hopefully get better results.
Heres the new fret board I made using the fretboard radiusing jig I found on youtube.





Once off the jig you still need to clean up the surface with the radiused hand block but it takes less then 5 minutes, compared to the hour it took to shape everything by hand.


#60
This is looking really really awesome. Also, thanks for the link to that radiusing jig, that'll come in very handy!

Can I ask whats happening with the part of the anchor that's missing?

My bloodwood fretboard is awesome. Bloodwood chips easily but if you work with it right it's great. Very warm wood and even though it's a hard wood it has a rosewood like feel to it.

+1. I've played on a few bloodwood fretboards and it's a very nice choice. Looks awesome, plays well, sounds well. I've heard that it can be difficult to work with (noxious dust, aforementiontied brittleness, etc.), but all the finished products I've played on have left me impressed. Anyway, I'm not a builder. I just play the things.

Hey guys sorry I keep getting distracted. This past week I decided to build a wood bending iron so I could start practicing for my acoustic builds. Its a real simple design that uses an charcoal igniter to heat a 12" long piece of 2" steel pipe. I put a dimmer switch through the power chord which acts as a temperature control. I bent one side and got some scorching but with a few more tries I'll get everything dialed in and will be able start using nice woods. I also think I will be adding a piece of 1" pipe to make tighter bends since I plan on doing a custom shape uke before I tackle bigger instruments.




Now back to the anchor build. Like I said I'm redoing the neck, which is coming out much nicer, so some of these pics might feel familiar. As soon as I'm done typing this I'm heading over to the shop to work more so I'll have some more progress around 4pm today.

This guitar is beautiful. I would Love to have one like this. If you weren't trading for it, how much do you think you would sell it for? Just wondering.

You should make a cool case for it too

Dude, a guitar with a fouled anchor, how awesome.

Anchors Aweigh my boys
Anchors Aweigh
Farewell to foreign shores

O'er our last night ashore
Drink to the foam
Until we meet once more
Here's wishing you a happy voyage home!

Nice build, aren't you worried about the weight? I mean, LP are heavy, and you just added a freaking anchor in it....

I'm not sure how much I would sell it for. I'm still learning things and its not perfect but I think I'd ask for about $1000-1500. I really need to work on keeping track of my hours because I do this for fun but I plan on taking it more serious soon and need to know how much to charge to make it worth while based on time and materials.

Digging this so far! Just goes to show you, good guitar designs haven't been exhausted yet!
Then there's this band called Slice The Cake...

Bunch of faggots putting random riffs together and calling it "progressive" deathcore.
Stupid name.
Probably picked "for teh lulz"
