  1. Hey guys, I'm going through the planning stages for my next build and I'm stuck on one element... I'm basically looking to build a guitar with a carbon fiber top similar to the one below, with the addition of a thin-ish (3mm) sheet of clear plexiglass on top of it (this will have a simple line drawing engraved into it). I will be buying the carbon fiber as a pre made sheet before adhering it to the plexi and then cutting it down to the right size. I'd imagine that if I was to try and glue the two surfaces together it's likely that there's going to be a very visible residue leftover from the glue / adhesive, so I'm wondering how to go about bonding the two surfaces together so that the join is effectively crystal clear? My first thought is some sort of two part epoxy, although since both surfaces are already going to be glossy and can't really be roughed up, I'm not sure really how well any adhesive is going to be able to hold everything together...
  2. Love the shape and the walnut always looks great. Can't wait to see more of this one
  3. Thanks for the link. That guy's got some serious wood! For any non-German speaking people, this should help you find your way around the site a bit easier: http://translate.google.com/translate?hl=en&ie=UTF-8&sl=auto&tl=en&u=http://www.holz-faszination.de/home/node/2&prev=_t
  4. Looks great. Any news on the truss rod? It would be a shame to have to pull it all apart to fix it.
  5. Guitar looks awesome RAD. What is the output jack/ plate which you are using on this guitar?
  6. The inlay looks very nice and clean. I've been thinking of doing some inlay the same way you've done yours here with the templates so I can get a cleaner route. What tools do you use to make the templates?
  7. Very clean build, and I love what you've done with the jack plate! How did you route the recess for the jack plate? It looks like it would be quite awkward?
  8. Looking great so far. Love the choice of woods. I've got a plank of Tassie Blackwood here for a body and neck and I've been eyeing off some Sassafras veneer for a while so I'm excited to see how yours turns out.
  9. If you don't mind me asking, how much did that cost? Just trying to get a general idea.
  10. All I get is: Even when I click on the links.
  11. Looks good from what I've seen. One question though, where do you guys get pictures of the pickups/ hardware etc?
  12. Haha, +1 to the new guy Welcome to the forum anyway Lovely piece of cherry you got there Narcissism, I suppose this one has got some specs that we all want to know?
