The neck is glued and the heel transition is carved, its very comfy.




I'm putting my sig on the truss cover for this one because of the small headstock shape. The raven lost his usual spot but I decided to perch him on one of the rear tuners instead.







Small epoxy smudge on the six string's headstock that I didnt get to sand off today. Ill take care of that tomorrow morning then begin the sealing/color/sealing/clear process

Got some fretting done



In one of my first posts I mentioned a snake inlay for a guitar I'm building for my dad. I finally got a chance to work on that

58 pieces, using various woods and metals




ran out of time before work but all the pieces have been joined and this will be inlaid later on tonight

That inlay looks amazing, the only thing that bothers me is the scales don't 'twist' with the snake.

I have started the finishing process for the seven string and duality based builds. I used an epoxy as a grain filler, let it cure, started to sand back. I will repeat this process one more time to make sure that when the clear coat is applied there will be minimal shrink back if any and a thinner finish can be used.







Its not much to look at now but it will make all the difference in the outcome of the final product.

I put those Dura Blocks on my amazon wish list after seeing them in your last build, and i went back in it recently and it took me a hot second to remember what the heck the dura block was for in the first place. Love the headstock design (as always), do you do any lateral reinforcement to compensate for the hollowed out offset?

Yes I do actually. The shape started to make me nervous so just to be on the safe side I put a carbon fiber rod into the head stock. I used a rose wood filler strip on top to seal it in. Its invisible unless you know its there

truss rod installed with a walnut filler strip, and the walnut headstock plate was placed also


I love the cocobolo fretboard and it looks even better with a finish on it!


I wanted a matching walnut plate on the reverse side of the headstock so I broke out the bendin pipe to create the volute curve.




More epoxy and time to wait

Theres that magic chisel again... Love the way the top almost seems to float right off the back with your sculpting, this will just need a clear coat and be good to go finish wise!

I think I have just had a guitargasm...

Breathtakingly stunning, love the finishes on both. What did you do to finish the neck naturally on the blue/green guitar? The headstock design looks great with the dark hardware.
#66
I swore pretty hard when I saw these two. The 7-string still steals it for me - it's an absolute beauty.

How much do your guitars usually cost man? Really realy great looking guitars.

Been away for awhile but I just finished another build I thought you guys might like to see. I got another request for a duality copy after someone saw the blue one and I agreed to do it to make some extra cash to survive while Im up at the Galloup school of lutherie for 8 weeks. Been working on my own line so expect to see those build coming along in the new year! Any way heres what I ended up with:

1 piece curly redwood top
1 piece black limba body
rose wood neck
ebony Fb and binding
Schaller Hannes bridge
Bareknuckle VHII in the neck, nailbomb in the bridge
bourns pots with a pushpull tone
switchcraft 3-way and an emerson .47 cap

The main draw to these thing for me was the size. I'm trying to get more intricate/exact with inlays and some times the 1/32nd is just too big. I'm hoping they will be able to handle cutting thin lines and cleaning up points so I can do more accurate lettering or stuff like this


I'll giv'em a shot and let you guys know how they do


Haha, that guitar belongs to me!

Your trying to get rid of it though arnt you? Unless your not the Guitarporn guy, in which case there are two of these exact inlays floating around haha.

How come you're trying to sell it?


That would be me. I'm selling it because I have a Myka/ViK and Bond on order. Need to clear the house out

Hey guys, I have about 2 weeks left before I head up to the Galloup school of lutherie so I haven't started any new guitars but I have been working on smaller projects to make some extra cash and I thought you might appreciate this long board I'm making for a friends grandson. He will be receiving this for Christmas. The grandfather owns race cars and has people drive for him. One of his drivers passed away who was close with the grandson. The driver had a flaming skull as sort of a trademark, so the grandfather asked me to include the skull on the deck. I went a little overboard but I couldn't help it and I love the way it came out.



Here Is the Skull the driver used


So lets inlay...
