Alright so, I sat down with a picture of a prs singlecut 10th anniversary, a couple McNaught and a couple Abyss guitar models and came up with the best of all worlds, in my view!

These are some pics of my progress in the past two days.




I was thinking doing it this color, or an ocean light blue, or tiger eye



This is my neck blank I just made today for the 14 String Acoustic Electric;

This is made from main Indian Rosewood, with Osage Orange accent strips! Osage is a super hard wood that's ( in this area ) bright yellow when cut, with prolonged sun exposure it turns a brilliant glowing golden color! This neck is going to be slightly thinner than a normal acoustic so it needed extra strength, finished with tru-oil or tung.


Rough sketch on 1/8" Flamed Maple I planed down of the idea.

The areas you see near neck joint are going to be flamed maple at an angle joining the sides and top.

Comments and opinions are welcome! - Josh

Ugh...

When I brought up this page, so much fail dumped out of my computer screen and all over my hands, severely damaging my ability as a musician.

Looks sweet, awesome idea. I've always wanted to play a good 7-string acoustic, the 14-string should be awesome. On the electric, are those frets 6100? They look really big in the 2nd picture.
O.S.I.

Electric is all routed, all holes joints etc all ready, should start finishing by tomorrow or the next day!

Acoustic neck is roughly done, waiting on the fretboard and frets to get here. I'm making my own binding and kerf out of spare wood I have laying around.

I have some sketches drawn up of the inlay I want I'll upload them soon, it's a nature/outdoors/ tree/leaf theme thing kinda stuff.. O_o


Yellow will darken alot with sunlight

awesome **** man. osage orange is a good wood for necks, its very prominent here in virginia. It is a real son of a bitch to work with. i had to buy a new table saw blade to cut the stuff, the other one would literally just cracked the **** out of the wood.

This = a F**KING nice acoustic design, I think I'm in love...

hehe maybe I should be working on the AE more everyone seems to be more interested =] The dimensions were made for the body to be around 1" smaller width and length, you know how an electric has angles on the body to lean against your body? Well This design is going to have those angles as well this should be one of the most comfortable acoustics to play.. EVER! =]

You're going to contour an acoustic? How exactly are you going to do that?

LPAddict; Yeah it's tough stuff! I'm still deciding on what woods I want to use for the back and sides and top, I'm thinkiinng, rosewood back and sides to match the neck, and a claro walnut top, or something dark! Not sure yet. Contours/Binding will be flamed maple
#23
Unfortunately, I've been working on the electric just because I have everything I need to finish it; whereas the acoustic I have a couple hundred dollars of supplies to buy

Progress Pics:

Body is ready for dye! Masked off around the bindings to apply GRAIN FILLER. I like grain filler because it has huge solid contents and doesn't soak in and bleed through the tape line as easy as lacquer does.


dyed, blue/sanded back/diluted blue.






I'm trying to create a unique pickup mount idea. It's something like Jet mounts, but more of a minimal approach. We'll see how it turns out. Normal pickup rings, even wood, doesn't look clean to me anymore I don't know.

Happy Building! - Josh

Not sure about that top horn, and the bottom horn looks really small with only a lil dye, but otherwise looks fantastic!

that blue looks fantastic man! considering your obvious knowledge and proficiency in dyed guitar tops, may i suggest a died top for the acoustic as well? i think it would look amazing
#27
hmm I think you're right =] I changed the blue :O It's sanded back some to show more "white" or wood. I just ordered 1 gallon of polyester resin clear, lookin forward to using it! I'm making a proper spray booth for it, out in the barn today after I get some sleep B)

Thanks dude =]

Absent Mind; what changes would you suggest to make the body design more aesthetically pleasing? The lower horn is larger than what's dyed, it has a cutout (sorry if I'm making an obvious remark)

seeya
#28
Yeah I know its smaller because of the cut out, it just looks a tad weird from above if you only look at the blue, it makes the bottom horn look tiny, its not something you can change I guess, its just something I noticed

#30
true I could, I'm most likely installing white seymour duncans so I'd hate to cover up these pickups maybe for a more vintage build that would look killer!

Absent; K, well I mean I could dye the part of the horn that shows the natural quilted maple part, that would increase the size of the dyed portion making it look more to scale? Just wondering on suggestions! Peacee

Ohh i forgot to post, it got ruined =] And i'm in the process of making a similar model, with a top carve, making my own neck/inlay, better dye job.

I'm just too picky nothing was good enough that i've made so far. I'm confident that this one i'm making now will be finished fully and be drop dead gorgeous! I wont stop until I have something that drops yer jaw
