That's a nice looking piece of Macassar. And the bird is very classy! Just thinking about inlaying that with hand tools makes my head hurt!
Oh well, so much for the "pure thoughts"
What a neat inlay idea! And BTW, may the (hand-tooled) Force be with you, that maple tops are simply sick!
hey barnaby another stunning guitar, do us all a favor and never get any power tools. all of your guitars are amazing!, makes my build look like monkey poo
As for power tools, we shall see. I suspect that they may be in my future, but only if I continue building after guitar #10 or so. That's the moment when I have decided to undergo a bit of reflection about the whole process, including wondering what it is all for.
Barnaby, did you ever do a review of the Katana and littlebone fret leveling/dressing, if not this would be as good a time as any
yeah i know what its like to have work get in the way,i only have to cut a recess for my electronics cavity cover and do the cavity cover and im ready for paint, the place i go to do my guitar is only open 2 days a week and both days this week i had to do overtime so i missed out. anywho im always impressed with your work
Hey! Haven't yet - almost no time. I hope to before the next ice age comes, so...
...probably this year.
yeah im a beef technician and we dont have a designated finish time so its whenever we are done is when we go home, hopefully monday and thursday this week are good days so i can get my guitar ready for paint grrrr
I'm amazed you get anything done on your schedule. I feel shame every-time I read a build post by you.
No problem, look forward to it when it comes. What are your initial views on them and reckon they'd be any good for an amateur? I've a couple of old guitars I'd like to bring back to life but just aren't worth the cost of a levelling. There's so much info on these boards and it's not rocket science so thought it's about time I took the leap.
has work given you a let up yet? we had a public holiday today so im nearly ready to prep my bad boy for paint woop woop
