I built a. New bridge & tailpiece for this older build of mine
http://descendentguitars.tumblr.com/image/50177775708 Gibson Les Paul build!
I started a couple of SG's. One will be an early sixties styled Special, and the other an early sixties styled Junior. Both will be Spaele bodies with Khaya necks, and P-90's. Once I have a fair amount of work done, I'll start a thread.
That should have been Sapele. Ugh!
YES after an annoying sand through, i bring you.... THIS!
Went over to my dads to mill down some rough sawn mahogany into neck blanks. He bought a few more toys since last time I saw him...
Barnaby, you'll be sad to hear that I only used the bandsaw, the #7, and the infill smoother on the lower shelf. No resawing by hand for me.
Should be starting a build thread soon. Need to order fret wire, magnets, and tuners first.
Oh, come on! Grow some chest hair!
All those toys.
A bunch more pickups:
Trimmed the neck to it's final width.
The board is still separate.
Nice headstock, ha?
Loving the minecraft theme, could be a bit more fluid on the transition into the body... Bandsaw's right over there.
The spoils of war...
Yeah I was wondering when this thread would pop up here.
I always hated the one at MLP becasue I had more than 1 bench ( 12 in fact) and they were always covered in multiple projects. So just taking the photos alone would have taken half the day posting them..
BUT NOW! Since the move. I have only 3 benches and I can mange that, So here it comes.
here are 3 of the 4 bodies I just sanded up for Sims Custom Shop guitars.
and a Fender Vibrolux Reverb that need some serious work..
and a Warmouth Mustang project that a local customer brought in for a set up.
Some templates for my jr-ish build and some white pine grips for my ruger mkiii pistol made from scraps from the body.
Me, I'm trying to figure out how to re-attach this neck;
so, that's one of stew mac's hot rods!
This ones pretty much all done! sounds great too. gonna take it to my tech for a set up. i cant do it as well as he can. been goin to him ever since 7th grade.
waddya think guys?
I think that I really like this guitar!
EDIT: Nice you went with creme soapbars ... good choice!
