You are very kind. Thank you.
great job, nu. that top is really nice, and the burst compliments it well. clear and polish will really make it pop.
Looks great! Better than my first burst.. Glad to see you making progress.. I finished my first build early summer and spent all the warm days playing.. Now it's getting cold I'm ready to start building again and will as soon as I can get some heat in my garage.. Can't wait to see her complete.. It's always inspiring to see a beauty like this come together..
Very nice, while I'm not am huge fan of the cherry burst, that works well! Did you use a light fast toner or will it fade?
It is aniline so it will fade.
Great thread and great work. Congratulations for the results!
I've got a question: what are the dimensions of the piece of wood you used to obtain two necks?
Thanks again for all
Fantastic, fantastic, FANTASTIC thread!
This is one of the best build threads I ever seen, from the point of view of the begginer (myself)! You expose so many details that reveal the solution for several misteries.
I loved your jigs (and their simplicity) and liked specially the one to radius the fretboard.
Thanks for sharing and congratulations for excellent work!
You'd have to start with a blank that's 3x4x32".
I was able to get 2 out of a 3x3x32 after planing.. I didn't have as much left over from the center.. Just barely had enough for the ears.. I would much rather and also recommend having a 3x4x32, but that was what I had and fortunately made it work..
Thank you very much for ALL.
You are making awesome progress & the results look great, excellent work
Waoow, didn't see this before.
how long have you been working on those LPs?
Forever it seems...and they're still not done. I have just about decided that I'm gonna pay somebody else to spray the finishes. I'm set up to do woodwork, and I feel very competent doing that. The finishing process however I'm not set up to do, and I have no desire to do it. It's just not fun to me.
Progress pics if you do any more work, or get them finished?
I don't mean to derail the thread but can someone explain why you need to angle the control cavity route? Also is the switch cavity angled as well? I have never noticed this before. Thanks -Frank
It needs the angle so the inside of the cavity roughly follows the contour of the top carve. Without relieving the inside of the cavity the shaft of the neck vol/tone potentiometers would not reach through the holes.
Similar story on the selector switch. The angle of the inner hole is so that it roughly follows what the carve is doing.
Got it. So the switch cavity is the same angle as the control cavity?
The angle of the switch cavity is less than the control cavity. I'm not sure what the angle is exactly, but it is quite a bit less as the carve in the switch area is less steep than the lower bout around the knobs.
