    KEA 2017 builds

    You ,may have and I was just blindsided by your work. I've never seen wood grain like that, and that is amazing!

    Luis, I haven't been on the site for a while until recently. Congrats on the job and I am glad to see you are still building. Amazing work! How is the tamo ash build coming? I never saw that particular wood before and I am intrigued.

    Stripy Double Cut With An F-Hole

    Scott, I continue to go back to the beginning of this thread for the before pics and then look st the after pics. Amazing build, sir! Looking at a few upgrades to the planned second build here.

    Multiscale P Bass

    Your joke assisted me in my planning and drawing of my second build. That is a +1 in my book! Cheers, Chuck

    Multiscale P Bass

    Norris, stupid question here, but is there any difference between mounting the pickups perpendicular compared to angled? My second build (in my head - still planning) is a 5-string multi-scale and that was one of the items for me to research. Cheers, Chuck

    Mr_Riddlers build thread

    Got it. I appreciate the explanation. Sometimes I can't turn off my job.

    @ProsthetaFrom a safety standpoint (sorry for being late to the party) how fie is the silica powder? Silicosis is a nasty respiratory condition. And @Mr_Riddler, this is a cool build.

    Well, It's Official!

    I haven't been on the site in a while. Its been very busy and we just put in an offer on this: https://www.realtor.com/realestateandhomes-detail/412-Glen-Ridge-Dr_Lancaster_PA_17601_M41836-67958 My daughter personally showed me the wood shop. Also, my brother-in-law told me he had a lot of wood for me to take...no charge. I know there is cherry, mahogany, walnut...I think there is even some maple in there. I may start building again...

    I think I may have said this in another of your threads, but you are one of the reasons I want to continue to build. To hopefully get to your level of skill. Yours, Pros', Scott's, and Curtis'. Your guitars are amazing. Cheers, Chuck

    My Bass Project

    Well, a few things: 1. The bass case is on hold. I was at yard sales the other week with my wife and daughter and found this Hohner bass case for 10 dollars. The only issue was the zippers were missing the pull tabs. Enter two keychain rings, and it works fine. 2. We passed on the house. It had a large unfinished basement, but the rest of the house was too small. We are working on becoming pre-approved and are looking at other houses. My wife knows that I am looking for a place to work and she is okay with that. 3. Sad news. After fighting liver cancer for a year, my mother passed away this past Tuesday. She was a fighter and blew the doctors away by living this long and this well. They only gave her 6 months to live.

    My Bass Project

    Okay, a little update. I hauled the Brick to my church Wednesday night. It definitely is a brick - 9.5 pounds. Thanks to Vorson for a padded strap. The one bass player in our worship team asked if he could play it. He sat down, plugged it in and started playing a few licks. Needless to say, I was very happy that it made music, The bass player looked at me and asked, "When are you going to build mine now." We are in discussion about what he wants in the way of wood and hardware. He wants the same shape, so I must have done something right. Oh, my wife and I looked at a house nearby that has a full basement and is being sold 20K under list.

    Finished pics! Psilos Ultra-modern bass build

    I don't know how to take that since my last name is Piper.

    SR, thanks! Coming from you, that means a lot. You and Pros were a big help in this. My friend who is teaching me carving was requested to make birds for the Long's park Art Show in Lancaster this year. He does not carve to sell, he always gave them as gifts to friends and family. He is really excited for this, plus a little stressed. He is making 8 gray catbirds, 3 cranes, and 8 mallards. I told him I would help him by keeping out of his way. He laughed and thanked me for it.

    I didn't know I was old school, just old! Pros, thanks for the assistance and advice on this build. I have a feeling that the next one will go much smoother.
