theres a headstock veneer i did on one of my first builds, it was kind of complicated, I didn't even bind it... That guitar is getting destroyed soon though, it's not a good player. It's funny how much better you get at building after your first couple builds.
next update will just be closeups of the heel and that will be maybe a day or two, whenever the stuff comes. Then I'll post pics of the oiled guitar, then I'll post pics of the fully assembled guitar... I cant wait to use this neck, its feeling nice.
Heh, I couldn't record anything, I suck at guitar.
I don't see why anyone would do this.. I know from experience that this is just a pain! I actually am a lefty but my first guitar was righty. If you reverse a guitar knobs get in the way of your playing, trust me its just a pain.
Wolfgang shape Nickel hardware TOM HH Carved top Stop tail grover tuners curly maple top mahogany back maple neck rosewood fretboard green dye on the top one strip of thick white binding. I think Ill do the same truss adjustment with the pinwheel.
Yes lol, it's for this. I'm pretty set on the wolfgang shape, I think it looks pretty cool. I'm thinking maybe a 1.75inch mahogany body with a .5inch carved maple top now sounds good. I really like that headstock too.. the little carve in it looks pretty cool.
Yeaa it would be a little bit of work, you'd only really have to repaint the neck pocket area though. I just think that the screw directly in the wood looks a little shoddy.. Maybe you could just use a ferrule for that one screw, I don't know.
Okay so I'm pretty set on the peavey wolfgang now with the 3/4th inch curly maple top and mahogany body. All nickel gotoh hardware. A TOM bridge with a stoptail. It'll look pretty sweet I think. I think I'll start right when I'm finished my 100gbp build.
Hey I'll be making a new right handed guitar that I'm gonna be selling to whoever wants to buy it. I just want some suggestions for what you think will sell easily. Whatever it is I want it to have a 2 piece mahogany body and a .75 inch curly maple top with a DEEP carve. Nickel hardware and an oil finish on this one. Other than that its wide open, I just want something that will be easy to sell and that I can complete on my time, I want no deadline which is why I'm not gonna be making anything "unsellable." I wont be selling it before I finish it.
Awesome man, I am a big walnut fan, I'm really liking this. I gotta do an RG one of these days, all of mine are strats. I just want a plain white lacquered RG with a green perloid pickguard. possible some type of binding.
It still can and will be string through body. This is a 100gbp build and I can only spend 100gbp. After the contest is done I'll most likely install a new bridge unless I really like this one for some reason.
God, this reminds me of what I should be doing.. I know how to and have every jig imaginable radius dishes go bar deck molds side bending press heat blankets etc, but i just forgot about building it last year. I gotta get on this eventually. I even have a set of mahogany sides bent haha.
