finishing up #12 a custom order type thing
Your work is MAD good, sir! I accord you the highest honor I know how to give to a luthier, and that is to say that I wouldn't change a thing about what you're doing!
If I weren't so poor I'd get on your waiting list for one.
I love these, especially how everyone is a little different then the last.
thanks, the next one I'm building is a lefty
here's number 9, I accidentally routed for a lefty control panel so I stuck a piezo under the bridge and volume and tone sliders in the space
Epic thread. Epic guitars. Epic, epic...epic.
You know it is on my bucket list to get me one, and it is on your bucket list to build me one. Incredibly beautiful work.
Great looking guitars as always. I especially love the truss rod covers. It's an awesome finishing touch.
Love these, thanks for posting the new ones!
#11 is just stunning. Well, they all are, but that one with the black P90's just grabs me - something about all black accoutrements with no big swatches of metal.
You should see if Jimmy Page would pose for a couple of pics playing one with a bow (I know, that would cost more than my house is worth... ) - now THAT would be fitting!
I just found this thread a few days ago and finally got through all the pages. These are fantastic. Your craftsmanship is outstanding, I gave a like on your FB page. I agree with some of the other's comments, the photos of the guitars perched at the edge of the dock are giving me anxiety LOL.
How did the one above, with the biding come out?
i started working on this again a couple week ago, decided on an all rosewood neck with some kind of binding on the fretboard and rosewood tailpiece and bridge instead of ebony this time,
Stop making my pants too tight! These are getting absolutely breathtaking as you progress. Truly beautiful works of art and passion.
Thanks, I have some cool ones coming up
I saw the finish on your lefty in the bench thread. I love that coloring!
You know, I was close to contacting you about one early on, years ago. I think you were only 2-3 Scattervarius builds deep, back then. At that point, I was working a well paying day job and working on pickups just as a hobby. Then my hobby quickly turned to a business and I had enough success to quit my day job and become broke again, as self-employed.
The last few years, I've only been able to put money into necessities and the business. When I make it to the next level, where I can start buying personal guitars (not just common demo guitars for my products) a Scattervarius is on my short list of "toys to acquire."
I've been wet sanding and buffing the lefty all day, i try for a faded burst look, each coat of paint i put on them is a shade darker, just eyeballed while i spray, getting better at getting the figure to pop too without staining and sanding back, really shimmers. these are the best selling things I have ever made, always seem to have one on the bench, but I'm not driving a Cadillac yet
Scatter...amazing man...just amazing!
Excellent concept and a beautiful execution.
The name of it is a bit problematic though. Sounds like the name of a 17th century man who really enjoyed pooping.
One of the coolest long-running threads on this whole sight -- just gorgeous guitars! With the inset binding on the tops of these, I wonder if it would be cool to put some inset binding on the fretboard of one sometime? Like this:
