Very NICE!!!!Did you lay it up yourself? If so, what kind of vacuum are you using? Amazing work!!!!!

Refinish I just finished. Allison did the burst, I did everything else. This thing is olddddddd.
Not only of guitars lives man....
A rather basic tilted amp stand. I needed a way to arrange these two combos in a somewhat elegant, living room compatible way.
Both amps remain accessible, both can be turned on and used at any time.
I recently acquired some great African mahogany that is very light, but it was not too wide
so, I have been wanting to build a non reverse firebird for a long time, so I am in the planning stages of this:
I re-sized it a little bit (less than 10%) to fit within the width
Building a new fret slotting jig. This jig will allow me to do fanned fret and single scale fretboard on necks up to 5.5" wide.
because ive been planning a fanned fret sloting jig incorperating a router... i'd like to see this method too..
It'll make more sense tonight, and be easier to explain. Stay tuned!
See what happens when a guy finally gets his shop set up and can use the table saw.... LOL
...more to come...
It's a King M...or King W...whichever you prefer.
A King Spork!
Just slotted the first fanned fretboard on the new jig
It's a lefty because I didn't want to tape to the paper. Need to remove the paper now
That jig is awesome Adam!
Glued a top.
Roughed in a neck blank.
Shaped a fingerboard, routed a truss rod slot, and glued the fingerboard on.
Flattened the body blank and top and glued them.
can't have too many clamps...
that is an absolutely beautiful top!
I'm staring a new bass build.
3-piece maple neck, Chechen fingerboard, ash body, single MM pickup.
