    If You Haven’t Tried It, You Should..

    I say “carve templates be damned! Oh, assuming you’re not hell bent on vintage accuracy. Stick a 60 grit flap disc in your grinder, draw some rough contour lines and have a blast. It really was fun and only took 5 minutes maybe? Spent another 5 minutes with 80 grit on the random orbital sander...

    Shaper Origin - A hybrid hand-held CNC?

    Thoughts on this thing? It's not cheap at $2499, but it's also not the cost of a full CNC and takes up a lot less space...

    Why not Patagonian Rosewood?

    So I'm getting the shop set up, cleaned up and even organized....collecting some wood, sharpening blades, etc. etc., all because I'm about to embark on a new build. Happened to go by my local Woodcraft because I wanted something pretty hard to use as reinforcement for a neck I'm actually...

    Meh

    First time I've gone the faded/semi-reliced route. I must say, I really like the way the satin nitro feels. I don't anticipate making another shiny guitar, I'm pretty sure. I still want to get the switch tip soaked overnight in the tea/oil/coffee/etc blend to see if I can't get it a little...

    Ok, it's time to restart now that the Kitchen Island is done

    Tele2 by emoney posted Apr 24, 2017 at 10:32 AMSooo, having said that, what's up with the whole Photobucket thing? I'm admittedly out of touch in what changed and I'm far too lazy to go to the effort of using Google to get the answers, but "back in my day" (said in the crochety old man voice)...

    For those of you newer members that don't know, as a profession, I treat Hearing Loss in adults with hearing aids. May was National Better Speech & Hearing Month here in the States, although I'm sure the majority of you didn't know that. Approximately 80% of the estimated 53 million people...

    Wiring question (yes I know I'm in the LC)

    So sue me...I don't frequent other parts of the website, and my mom always told me to not speak with strangers. We all know I'm lazy, so don't waste your time with the "Google is your friend" thing, and we also know that I hate wiring. Having said all of that, I picked up an older import...

    So what happens to the world of guitars if.....

    The Chinese economy adjusts to a more logical platform where labor is no longer basically free? By no means am I a global economist...heck, just typing that title out caused me to express more effort than I'm inclined to. But even a common ole layman like myself can watch the plunge the...

    The Things I'm Thankful for Thread;

    In the spirit of the season approaching here in the U.S., I figured why not share things I'm thankful for. No, this doesn't exclude all of you outside this country, because regardless of if you have a National Holiday where you get to pig out excessively and lay around watching football all...

    It's official; I enjoy building without templates or even plans...

    Under the guise of laziness, I decided to build myself a "Strat", as some of you may have seen. And while working on it last night, I started to realize that I don't have plans or templates for this guitar, and it's actually been more enjoyable for me. Not sure why, but maybe it's the goal...

    Can I be lazy and someone share some "F-body" dimensions?

    Yeah, yeah, I know all about the "Google is my friend" et al, however, I'm at work and our computers are very well "protected" for data attack reasons. Having said all of that, I need the neck pocket dimensions for a F-type *Strat* build I'm doing.:thumb: IF my memory serves me, which...

    If you hafta use rattle can clear, try Behlen's

    I try to share kudos where they're due, and that's what I'm doing now. First time I've used Behlen's Stringed Instrument Lacquer, but I'm a fan. The crappy cell phone pics in really poor lighting don't show well, but here; I had done build coats on this guitar with the MinWax gloss...

    Identify this "Rosewood"? Help

    Bargain bin purchase ($5.00 per pound, and this was 1.45 lbs), but it wasn't labeled and the counter guy wasn't the species expert one might have expected him to be. So, any thoughts as to what type it is? Just curios mainly, because it's become both a Fretboard and a few bridges; This...

    Here's a reasonable wood source

    Just looking around the 'nets and found this supplier for lumber. Seems to be reasonable on both price and shipping. Wall Lumber Co., Quality Hardwoods and Plywoods For The Craftsman You're on your own as it applies to ordering, meaning I'm not endorsing just sharing information. Best...

    One man's junk....

    Is another man's "E-Hawk" Gotta fix a P90 route, but I think I'm gonna finish this one. Truth is, this is a "left over build", meaning I used leftover Maple and African Hog I had that wasn't going to any good use. The mahogany blank wasn't big enoug for a LP build, so I used it for this...

    What would you do?

    Ok, somehow I "won" an auction on Evilbay for an Epi' 339 Pro. Truth is, I have no idea why I even bid on it, other than the fact it was new, but has a headstock break. At least it was advertised that way. From the pictures the seller posted the crack wasn't evident. Regardless, I entered...

    Acoustic-y Question

    Ok, so I want to build, what would be to me anyway, the "ultimate guitar"; A smallish, semi-hollow fitting halfway in between a 335 and a 339. BUT, the question that's rolling around inside my head, is can I carve it out like a 339 is built, yet get it "thin" enough to get pure acoustic...

    Let's talk Fretboard widths

    Ok, to bring you up to speed as to the purpose of this thread, I was building this into a bass, because I was asked to play bass in the band and the weight of my PBass was an issue; However, since my main duties are Vocals, it's become obvious that it will be much easier for me to play...
