The idea for this one is simple, two piece body with no top. Carved. I want the entire thing out of the same type of wood except for the fretboard. So its either gonna be all mahogany or all curly maple. I have some nice 8/4 curly maple that I think I'm gonna glue up today if I have time. What do you think of this?
It plays very well, my last two guitars have played pretty much exactly the same, I like it. It also sounds surprisingly well considering it has GFS pickups in it. It plays very well clean. I'm pleased with it.
The weld on cement is great.. it actually melts the binding and softens it so that its easier to get onto the guitar. I really like that stuff. To route I just mix and match bearings off different router bits haha..
I HOPE I can get this thing finished up tomorrow.. I don't know though, you never know what might come up to ruin those plans. If not tomorrow it's gonna be within a couple days id imagine. I'm really anxious to get this thing done.
there is a tool for this.. It basically measures the distance of the top of your blade from the table.. you just wanna make sure its the same distance at every part of the blade. Their are also other knife setting tools you can buy.. look into it.
cove cutter bit, It was the first time I attempted that, I figured since this guitar was for me I might as well try that out.. only problem was the thickness of the top, it wasn't thick enough. If I would've made a thicker top it would've been much nicer.
