And so it begins!
After playing /working on my own guitars and other people's for the last several years. I decided to make my own LP replica. I'm going to go fairly historically accurate, I'm going to modernize in certain areas. We'll see how that goes when I get there. I'm excited for my first build.
I just got my Brazilian rosewood fretboard. It's fairly dark and uniform in grain and figure. You'll see more as this takes off. It's currently wrapped in plastic.
Now that I'm home from work, I unwrapped the fretboard and added just a small amount of fretboard oil. A before and after. I've heard to store fretboard blanks put in a dry place under a small amount of pressure. Like a box or something. I had a few books, in a box that should be okay.
i should get this strung up next week and I've been dying to get this finished
Original vintage bigsby and dogbone bridge which isn't quite the same as I've seen but if i can be arsed i can put the thumbweels from a 50's bow tie bridge on it then it'll be correct, original 1956 p90's with original bumblebee caps, i purposely did a greened out goldtop to start it off and the checking came out really nice, the more battered this looks the better but I'm not rushing it or it will look shit imo, i also did a darkback
