I'm doing some sculpting, of the more conservative kind
Love that cutaway!
I've been infatuated with concave carves lately. I love the way they look!
The headstock for the guitar above:
what are those laminates in the neck? ebony? how does one get laminates that long?
Looks like black dyed veneer....or wenge veneer.
Yup. Dyed veneers.
Worked on the 9 string today, routing cavities, drilling holes, the usual. The spacing on the string through holes on the back looks funky because the top 4 strings have different spacing than the bottom 5 (also the lowest string will use a bass string ferrule).
I notice you changed the cavity that weakened the original body. Pickup switch? Did you change from blade to toggle, or am I way off?
Going to be using a Freeway switch, so I was able to make the cavity much smaller.
Whoa...those are like a stick shift for pickups. Haven't seen those before.
First coats of oil on the HS-II 7-string build
That's a really nice bolt-on neckjoint. Don't you oil the recess for the screws?
Nice job Aaron!
I do, I just snapped that picture directly after wiping on the very first coat of oil.
Tung? BLO? Dutch? Tru?
That's a beaut, Aaron! The neck joint, the concave curve in the cutaway, the finish, great design on the body and headstock. ..everything about that guitar is right.
i think i got a bit carried away......the 2 skull and crossbones bodies on the left glow in the dark.....freakin eerie killing the lights and walking into the shop. they look like theyre just floating in the air there.....i shot glow over the white, then shot the black over that, so the black dosent glow.
The headstock on the fanned fret BW is stunning
