With this you wont see any new posts from me for a month at least. I'm sure you're relieved ;)

Now they all hang

As a side note, I plan to never again shoot 3 guitars (plus an extra neck), 9 different colors, and 2 different sheens, all in the same week cuz frankly it was too much work and takes the fun out of it.

I may sell the odd guitar here and there, but I do this stuff for fun, not for a living.

2.2Kw/3HP, 220V spindle, a 2.2Kw 220V VFD, and a set of colletes for different sized bits. All from our overseas friends.

So much variation nowadays, even from the same source. Forget blind-buying blanks, unless you're getting a dozen at a time from which to select.

Helped my youngest finish his neck for the 80’s Shredder guitar. Floyd Rose bridge, locking nut.

Flamed maple/walnut/maple/walnut/flamed maple, ebony fingerboard.
The flamed looks roasted, but he ordered flamed maple, so I guess just a darker piece of wood.
Looks nice with some oil on it.

We had it on the guitar. Took off to fret dress & oil.
Pics of complete in a while.

Here's my first attempt at a from scratch build with some dye. I posted some other pics in another thread where I had screwed up the neck pocket, so I was trying to get as dark as I could around that to try to conceal the repair. No finish yet, of course...

It looks like the sun's coming up, Chris.

Absolutely beautiful.

Finished up the youngest son’s 80’s Shredder guitar. Tuned & intonated as well.

JB & 59 for pickups.

I’m sure he will put a back cover on the control cavity.

Nice :)

Classic design, and you just cant go wrong with the JB/59 combo. Same as I use in my rootbeer float

Fabricated the mounting plate for the CNC spindle router this evening.

I had some 4”x4”x1/4” aluminium angle iron in the surplus tower pile.

Cut off 4 1/4”, then one of the angles, sanded flush.
Needed flat for the mounting plate.

Drilled bolt holes to match original router mount on Z-axis.

Drilled & tapped spindle mounting holes.

Mounted nice & square on the Z-axis.

Seems much more sturdy than original wood router mount.
