  1. I gotta love me some redwood burl! Great build Simo! I also liked Tait's, and Jester's a lot! Beautiful work guys!

Its shiny.
  3. He's following my posts and leaving passively derogatory comments because I suggested that sustainer people get along. *shrug* Whatever floats your boat I guess. Nice guitar btw!
  4. I see what u did there. You're stupid.
  5. I would ask what year guitar it came out of. If I recall correctly, the ZR system came out in 2006 or 7. My last review of a broken one was in late 2007. I haven't seen one come in since!
  6. http://projectguitar.ibforums.com/index.php?showtopic=43246 Here's a rough version
  7. I've had a few ZR trems come in because the part that holds the barrings in near the trem arm had cracked. Upon further research, it turned out that was the most common problem with the trems. However, that was a few years ago, and quality control has probably improved since then.
  8. that kitchen oil sprayer looks pretty nifty!
  9. +1. I don't know how many times I've explained that here. I don't mind explaining it, but a tutorial would be nice. Carving and contouring for beginners would be pretty cool too. Like, drawing your depth on the edge of the body and then drawing the start of the slope on the face of the body. Simple stuff like that. What i'd really like to see is the missing pictures or a redo of the finishing tutorials that Lex Luthier posted. Same goes for a neckthrough tutorial that includes clamping, as I've never seen anything like that, and I'm sure a lot of people have questions on weather to clamp before you carve the body parts out or after.
  10. It was a close call between the Texas Tele and the Gecko explorer. I ended up voting for the explorer, because it's the one I could picture owning. A few months ago, I wouldn't have even thought of voting for the Tele, because the pictures just made it look... bland. But now that I'm seeing it in proper photographing, It really blew me away! I couldn't even tell that there was top carving on it from the earlier pics. When I voted, I noticed that the invader is pretty far ahead. I'll review this one, simply because I'm confused. I didn't vote for this one because it looked nice until I saw the kill switch button... Kinda reminds me of a beer can in the middle of a crystal clear lake. So yeah, nice guitar, except for that killswitch.

    Bear Carving

    I'm really enjoying watching this thing emerge from the wood! Thanks so much for documenting it
  12. I just fill the slot with super glue then take a rubber tip hammer and push them in with that and slide the hammer across the fret pushing it in instead of hammering then take an extra radius block and squeeze clamp the fret in (I usually have three frets in before I clamp) let it dry a couple mins, move on and repeat. I find this is cheaper than buying press inserts and all that stuff and with this process I have only had to level the frets once (my first build) other than that the frets stay perfectly level, that is if the board is level to begin with. Love this build though, its lookin good and I like that ebonizing technique I will have to try it sometime. But now the radius block has fret imprints and superglue all over it
  13. Most of the 50's guitars were hand made anyway, weren't they? With that in mind, no two would be exactly alike. So you're paying more homage by not being completely accurate!
  14. the headstock has just enough end to it to not make it look phallic. I think it'll look better with tuners, but we'll just have to wait and see. I really like this build!
