    Guitar Of The Month For December

    Yeah...pick one.....right. It's like choosing the hottest chick at the Playboy Mansion. I had to get some GooGone after checking out all the maple on LGM's latest. LOL UncleJ's is a great original design, with some cool woodworking. Erik's bass is a stunner as well. As a Carl Thompson fan (Primus sucks!), I gotta say it's a classy hat-tip. Great work from everyone. Keep it up!

    2004 Tutorials - Duff

    No rush. We've got a couple of months before the unveiling of the new site, so take your time. And even if you miss a few, we can always insert them later. At least we'll have the majority done. Thanks again!

    Dave- you missed a couple of the items in the format! :-) Here's the format we need to use to keep everything uniform: Title: Title of the tutorial. Date: Not Star Trek time, please. Topic Starter: User Name Pics: No (means dead links/pics), Yes (means links/pics are working), Not Available (no photos ever taken) Complete: Yes or No Link: direct link to first post in the thread. Check out Maiden's compilation thread for an example. THANKS!

  9. From the Fernandes-Japan site: (horizontal) http://www.fernandes.co.jp/p16-burny/rlc/65s/images/s/sw.jpg (vertical) http://www.fernandes.co.jp/p16-burny/rlc/65s/images/b/sw.jpg No- you can't buy that guitar in the U.S. (for obvious reasons. LOL) The pics should help with your initial drawings. Remember: A LP's normal scale length is 24.75".
  10. I'll get you the links, but you need to do the math. :-) RG backplate: http://www.tremol-no.com/images/6stringbackplate.jpg Strat® backplate: http://www.tremol-no.com/images/vintagebackplate.jpg
  11. Garage- thanks for your post man. You saved me a ton of typing. :-) With Fender's blatant lack of enforcement, even in the last decade, I don't see them being granted anything. Plus, it'd leave the whole basement empty at NAMM. LMAO Perry- you'd first have to get past the owner of the PEZ trademark- Pez Candy, Inc. LOL LukeR- If you're going to hand out legal advice, please preface each of your posts with "According to Australian IP law...", or something to that effect. While the laws regarding copyrights, trademarks and patents are somewhat similar the world over, specifics can vary drastically depending on the country you're filing in. You might want to hold back for a while until you've got a few filings under your belt. That's not meant offensively; just a suggestion so you can see how the whole thing works- copyrights, trademarks, patents, PCT, international patents, etc. I'm not claiming to be an expert on this, but I have certainly learned a pantload about this over the last 3 years.
  12. Great post, LGM. Dave- with regard to Fender and their designs.... The last I heard, FMIC was trying (very hard) to get design patents and trademarks on the Strat, Tele, P-Bass and Jazz Bass body shapes. Considering the Strat is 51 years old, and the Tele even older, I *highly* doubt their requests will be granted. The Strat/Tele/J- & P-Bass names and headstock shapes are already covered under US trademarks. If FMIC does plan on going ahead with the design patent/trademark thing, there's a HUGE consortium of builders, suppliers, and other companies that are prepared to fight it tooth and nail.

    Nice work, Aid! (I can see your origin though...heh heh) That's a great example of how easy SW is. The wood textures aren't super-detailed, but you can get a general idea, and can label them if need be. If I'm not mistaken, you can also import your own textures. Spy- thanks for the info. I think I'll just stick with 2004 for a while. It's perfect for my needs. Sorry guys, but I didn't have time to get to that neck this weekend. I'll find some time soon and time how long it takes me for each section (neck, headstock, fretboard, frets, etc).
  14. You're in "metric heaven", and none of those guys had a 9x1.0? Disappointing. I have a set that looks exactly like this one: http://www.harborfreight.com/cpi/ctaf/Disp...temnumber=31795 It's a little pricey to get just one tap, but then again, you'd be the only guy in town with a 9x1.0 tap and die. You might also check FleaBay. Single taps will be expensive, so a nice complete set might be the way to go.
