    Scero Laulita '59 #1 BUILD

    To be clear, I said feels familiar. I didn't say it was a copy or accuse anyone of it. It has some similar aesthetics I made to my Starliner design to feel a bit familiar but I know how hard it can be to thread the single cut originality needle.

    How many guitars could you build in a year?

    When I was working solo I was doing 50-60 a year (before kids), with 2 full time guys and 2 part time guys were at about 85-100 not including Titan. Titan we could do a couple hundred a year easily if we had the sales.

    That's fantastic! Love the design. I have a couple mango builds going right now too, it's new to me but it looks stunning. Can't wait to see these with finish on them

    Operation: Pelham V (Flying V log)

    Just a heads up, to get that super green, it's better to start with an actual green. I had to go thru this for a customer and honestly, starting from pelham it's extremely hard to get that extreme a green with a blue base.

    Sort of. It's actually 5 pieces. The neck section is 2 pieces of quartersawn (same board, split up the center and one of the pieces flipped then glued back up) with a scarfed on headstock. The wings are 2 separate pieces that we pick that are intentionally heavier than the rest. We glue it all...

    That's great Frank! Honestly, I'm jealous too. I'm very good in AutoCAD and anything 2d but have absolutely no skills to learn 3d. I feel like my Dad did when I pushed him out of the way on the CNC 15 years ago and took over. Just to old I guess :laugh2::laugh2:

    Ofcourse! Happy to introduce the Sons to everyone! The first track (Electric Man) is recorded with a Kauer Banshee. The other two tracks we're recorded before we started working with them. Most if not all of the newest album has a Kauer on it somewhere. :D Thanks! I really wanted to show...

    My offset LP concept

    I like your new version more. Or if you have staggered tuners slightly it'd flow with the body well I think. Like I said, I'm sure there are 50 builders who have almost identical to mine as well. I know there's a Jack Briggs version out there. It's a pretty generic shape I thought up because...

    Just rattle can primer (It's plastikote maybe? I don't know I just buy it around the corner at the autoparts store). Anything works but primer is best because it dries fast and doesn't load up sand paper. (since it's meant to be sanded) Technically they weren't mine either.. I was passed out...

    Peter they are drilled at 90* to the headstock face. The table on the drill press is angled to match up the angles correctly. :D

    My version of a single cut...

    Looking great brother! I like the new headstock but I think I like your original one more for this model.
