February Guitar of the Month

Recommended Posts

I'll probably enter mine in next month's competition! Cutting out back tommorow! Started sanding.

That's a Hoot!

You were just joking, right? B)

I average a guitar -maybe- every 6 months or so.

Sometimes faster, sometimes slower.

I finished a guitar this summer that's been around for 7 years.

...And you're gonna whip your first puppy out in a month?

Ooh, pretty! Turned out nice, westhemann... but there's something missing from the pictures. Hmm... what could it be... I just can't quite put my toe on it :D.

Well since my first bass went over like a lead balloon I'll try this one.

I call her the Southern Pearl:

One piece South American Mahogany body

Hand rubbed lacquer (no machine polish on this one) Clear only - no stain

One piece rock maple neck (no separate fretboard)

Lo-Pro Bridge (I love this thing!)

Grovers for staying in tune

BassLines for getting loud

Presence Logo on headstock 'cause I made it myself!

This is IMO the best looking and by far the best sounding one I've made (this is #3). I made her curvy for comfort.

how's she play? looks like a bit of a radius on the fretboard for my style, but has the appearance of an "i love everyone and everyone needs to finger me" sort of bass. the kinda bass you don't wanna play...just hug... :D

She plays great! I just put her together this afternoon and need to tweak the action down a hair, but it's not high by any means. I like my action set looooow so even an 1/8" seems too high for me.

As far as hugs......my wife is never real turned on by my work, but she saw this after I put it together and her first words were (I'm NOT kidding) "you're not selling that are you?"

Cool! :D

God, they're both so beautiful!

I'm such a sucker for natural Mahogony, I voted for that Mahogony Tele last month, even tho I had a problem with the guy being a no-show, I just fell in love with that natural Mahogony...sigh... B)

It's gonna be another hard pick month! :D
