  1. chops: we'd be looking at about 45 a pickup, plus shipping for the whole packege which would be $5 for usps flat rate
  2. I have done some sourcing and have found a place that will do special pricing for a group buy of pickups. Just curious if anyone would be interested in this? Problem is the requirements are large, for seymour duncan we would need a total of 24 pickups order to qualify for the pricing, for emg we just need an order of 500 dollars. Let me know if you are interested, i have a pricing sheet and can tell you what prices you would pay for what pickups.
  3. Okay bring this back from the dead. Been slowly working on this. I only get to work on it basicly on saturdays for 3-7 hours. This thing is getting very close to done. Next week i will be routing the control cavity and gluing the neck in, then just need to blend a few things like the neck joint, sand and will start finishing. Here are a upto date pics. Neck being carved. Body and neck together. I will try to start posting around here more. I always jump on and read just never post. Let me know what you think.
  4. Bump also have oem tuners and oem pickups from a made in mexico fender strat if anyone is interested.
  5. I know this thread is older but i didnt want to start a new one cause i have a similar question. My question is how do you get the grain to show through white paint? Those are a couple of pics of what i am talking about. Does bleaching the grain help make it pop anymore? IS it just a SUPER thin coat of white paint?
  6. Okay, I am doing an over haul on my epiphone les paul custom and changing all the hardware from gold to chrome and putting new pups in. I am selling everything together, here is a list of whats included. As said before everything is gold. The gold finish is also starting to wear off in some places. This would be a great kit for a person new to building who wants a good set is pups but doesnt have tons of cash to shell out. 2 Epiphone Alnico Classic humbuckers Bridge and tailpiece All pots and switch. Grover Tuners (the highlight of all these parts) Plus all the little gold screws and pickguard hardware I would like 70 paypal'd and shipped for everything. Pics will be up within a week, i am waiting for my parts to show up so i can change everything over.
  7. fretboard is slotted, inlayed bound and radiused, just need to sand it up to 2000 grit now.
  8. Did you do something similar? Can you please link the post? here is a link to my rhoads i am building. i havent taking any pictures in a while or updated, perhaps i will do that today. http://projectguitar.ibforums.com/index.ph...c=40900&hl=
  9. I call copy cat lol jk looks good. out of curiosity why did you go with the older designed rhoads?
  10. i dont have any pictures but yes a little progress has been made. Starting the binding channels which should get finished up tomorrow on the new style. I am still deciding if im going to put binding on the older style. Like ive said a few times before prgress on these will be slow, i am working with a friend of mine who is a perfessional luither. He makes mainly acoustics but also does electrics here and there. I kinda have to work on his watch when its good from him so i only work on these a fews hours a week. I am fine with this because i am learning a lot.
  11. Heere is another update. Got the flamed maple glued on the back and front also got the body trimmed up. Here are some pics Here are a couple of pics of body newer and older rhoads next to each other Next will be sanding the sides and then cutting for binding. Let me know your thoughts.
  12. the more im thinking about the build the more it is changing in my mind, i am now thinking of doing a set flamed maple neck instead of a through neck. The body would change to a full alder body with flamed maple front and back. does anyone have dimensions on the higher end neck through randy rhoads guitars? I have templates coming so i have the body shape just need to know body thinckness and neck thickness at the 1st, 12th, and last fret before it connects to the body. All help is greatly appreciated.
  13. the more im thinking about the build the more it is changing in my mind, i am now thinking of doing a set flamed maple neck instead of a through neck. The body would change to a full alder body with flamed maple front and back.
  14. does anybody have rhoads measurements? i dont think my templates will be here in time for when i go get my wood. also how long are your neck through blanks when you start? I wanted to do a one piece through flamed maple neck but am having a hard time finding a blank long enough.... Also am thinking possible a 5 piece maple/walnut neck.
  15. a guy on ebay has them his name is aiguitars i believe, he is the one on there that sales the ibanez pryamids and jem vine inlays. He has lots of different inlays he can do that arent listed such as prs birds and those v's, you just have to contact him and ask.
