Start a thread about your builds?
I will. Just moved and have to unpack the computer with all the pictures. I think just getting the thread caught up to where I am in the builds will take some time here's a pic I took of the 3 PRS/LP axes my buddy designed and I started before I moved.
I've always loved the look of spalted maple, will definitely look for your thread!
So I could participate in the holiest of threads on MLP, bar none.
I joined for Luthier's corner as I'm planning for a couple of builds I will start in about 6 months (I have a Thesis to write first) when I move back to New Zealand. MLP, SS.org and Luthiertalk has been immensely helpful in wrapping my head around the idea of building.
I plan to post pics and all the gory details so hopefully I can contribute to the knowledge pool for other people who wanna build. I also want to build a 7 string Baritone Les Paul one day soon and figured who better to hang around with
At first I joined with regard to a 1974 LP Custom nitro finish (Randy Rhoads style).
But then I seemed to enjoy the majority of the community here, I thought this would be a haven for talking, not only about Les Pauls, but other guitars, music theory, etc.
I was really confused and lost. I joined just to feel better about my self. I was wrong and things got worse.
I don't remember. Probably had questions about buying my first Gibson.
I was (am) a member over at the other Les Paul forum when Flick set this one up, so I joined here back then. Still drop in at the other place from time to time, but prefer it here.
I have an Oscar Schmidt autoharp, and I'm not satisfied with the limited number of chords. I'm designing a sort of slide guitar that will allow me to combine the push button action of an autoharp with the slide ability of a pedal steel. The push buttons will activate separate condenser mic elements (one under each of 15 string) to produce 12 chord forms (Major, minor, 7th, M7th, m7th, 6th, m6th, 5th, M9th, m9th, Sus2nd, Sus4th) in standard guitar chords, with the key determined by the slide bar. I'm planning to use the tuning pins from my autoharp, and knowing their penchant for loosening after a short time of playing, I was researching woods for stiffness and hardness, and came across mesquite, as the second hardest wood. I found a question on this forum about using mesquite, and having previously discovered a link to a Texas luthier who made a guitar of mesquite, I wanted to answer the question "Has anyone made a guitar out of mesquite?"
Check's in the mail Big M.
