If you are referring to the router bit, I got it for a hundred bucks on Amazon
A freshly routed neck pocket.
What is that top wood?
Thanks Chris! The top’s Cocobolo. It’s the 2nd one I’m doing from a couple of billets I picked up shortly before The CITES changes for all rosewoods went down.
Working on this right now...
Just mocking some stuff up before drilling and routing:
For some reason I thought this was going to be multi-scale.
This one is going to be hammered charcoal, it's for my cousins friend. Also the bass that I'm doing is going to be the same colour
That was my original plan, but then decided I would just go single scale length on the proto. I like multiscales, but they can be a pain in the rear end sometimes.
I'm glad. I think the screwey frets would be too much with all the other unique lines of this build. IMO it would make the guitar too...chaotic looking
This guitar was inspired by ergonomic designs, most all of which are multiscale, so that was the original intent. There were a few contributing factors that led me to not do so on this one, even though that is how I drew it up originally.
Dont get me wrong, I really like this design. Its unique, and it flows without looking like its trying too hard to be different.
You've incorporated a couple Tele-like features, but left out the ones that I personally dislike
I'm just not a big fan of multi-scale. They really screw with my OCD I guess and look "wrong" to me. Just a personal preference, so I hope you'll forgive me for being glad this doesn't have it
I've got no problem with you having an opinion different from mine . There are a lot of guitars and features out there that I have a hard time with. Ergonomic guitars challenge my sense of aesthetic, which is one reason I decided to try this design, to try and take something that I don't particularly like and try to make something in that vein that I really do like. I'm glad you like the design, I quite like it as well.
Oil day is always a good day!
This guy finally got off all of my many benches. Some cosmetic issues and the last few days have seemed like 1 step forward, 1 and a half steps back. But I finally got it. Sounds awesome with a cheap Chinese P90 that I swapped magnets for an A8 and a UOA5. Give it some dirt and it's the stuff that classic rock is made of.
Got working on this, I realise why Freddy says to do the pup routes after you get the neck in. Silly billy here measured for a 34 inch scale instead of the 30 that this neck is.
Good thing I'm painting it.
Also it was too hot to spray the charcoal guitar. I suppose I should update my thread
Oil day, pt. 2!
After issues with paint I'm glad it's coming along, and also after brain farts the bass won't be too far off getting the same colour paint
And I know the contrasting wood is off centre lol
