I used to post under "thebadger" but I lost my login info.

Here is my latest guitar...I guess I will call it "Silky B's 9 String Gitfiddle"

It is a 9 string guitar with the 3 high strings having double strings like a 12 string to get that chorus-y sound.

Some of the specs

Carved flame maple top with a purple/reddish stain

Body wood is alder

Neck wood maple

Fretboard is ziricote

Faux body binding

Flame maple neck binding

MOP diamond fretboard inlay

Headstock logo is gold leaf w/ nitro clear over it

22 jumbo frets

24.75 scale length

Gotoh tuning machine

Gotoh bridge

Recessed knobs,switch and straplocks

PAF style humbuckers

Bone nut

All hardware on the back is black to hide it better

Nitro black on the body/neck, Nitro clear over whole guitar

OM Wanna-B

Yes, it's just an acoustic, but it's my first and I am more than happy with the way it turned out, and especially the way it sounds!

The Hand of Doom

Iommi inspired 23 fret Sapele SG. The neck is 13 piece Sapele/Bocote/Walnut with an Bocote Fretboard. Bookmatched Ziricote top with hooded winged figure in the grain. The Diablo mini humbucker is designed and wound to play the intro to Black Sabbath's Black Sabbath.

The most evil cantankerous malcontent guitar I have ever built. Threw itself of the bench while I was building it and cracked its horn. The fretboard lost a fret ending up with only 23... I must have been mezmerized by the figure. The control plate had to be made 3 times as it kept curling up. While carving the top moved continually and reveals new cracks everyday. The finish went bad and had to be completely sanded off. The headplate, top, and body all reveled seams after finishing.

Specs --

Neck : Sapele/Bocote

Fretboard : Bocote

Scale : 24.75

Frets : 24

Trussrod : Allparts double action

Body : Sapele/Exotic Top

Tuners : Chrome Hipshot

Pickups : Handwound Diablo Mini Humbucker

Bridge : Chrome Gotoh 510

Electronics : Volume and three way switch

This started as a straight tribute to Iommi... it is now something of its own. The hand of doom.... maybe.
