A bit. I've been working on that Raze for the last couple weeks. I drew her probably a month ago. I've done a lot of drawing and I'm trying to get the more interesting ideas cut into MDF. Here's another that I have kickin' around for a headless.
I've come up with a single-cut design, but it leaned a lil too close to the Sully '71, so I'm tweaking the design. 3 designs with double horns...I really need a single-cut option. I've got another headstock to reveal as well that will look REALLY good on a V.
I've been busy...really busy.
Nice! Oh yeah I'm busy as well but not only in the shop Wish I could spend more time with my guitar stuff.
Fresh out of the clamps.
Back on the bench after a long break....
Started 5 basses. =]
This is my first guitar build. Getting close to applying the finish stage. It has been a heck of a journey! Learned a lot about the process. I picked a set neck to start with since I deemed it to be the most difficult and wanted to prove to myself I could do it. Anyway here are a few shots of the progress so far:
That's quite the shape you got there. Very organic.
Two necks thicknessed and ready for profile carving
Started making some wooden knobs ...
Those look awesome! How are you making those?
Thanks! With one of these
Ive been working on this 17" carved arch top on and off for many months. Its for a player in Oregon. curley maple rims 3 piece figured maple carved back Uber spruce top ebony appointments and a maple neck and inlays. It needs to be done by mid September . This year yikes !
my unfinished 17" arch top
Wow! That should be beautiful when you finish it.
I'm over here like "I BUILT A GUITAR!!!", then I see something like this and I'm immediately humbled. Solid bodies pale in comparison to the amount of work I see there.
