  1. I just wanted to say that at first I wasn't really sold on the idea of an amp stand. However, after seeing your threads on here, I really love them! You've managed to make functional furniture that looks great and is super well made! Great job all round Josh!
  2. They are way overpriced but Axesrus has gold polepieces: http://www.axesrus.com/axeScrews.htm The Allparts ones are badly plated, you can scrape the gold off with a light touch of your nail and a screwdriver destroys them I've never tried the axesrus ones, just thought I'd give you a heads up of a UK supplier for them. Their shipping is super fast too!
  3. Im a big Oceansize fan! I listen to a lot of instrument post rock/metal these days. I'm sure you know of these bands but check them out if not; Explosions in the Sky - these guys are the masters of epic melodies Russian Circles - Made up of guys from These Arms are Snakes, Botch etc - pretty heavy at times ISIS - not technically instrumental but similar to Oceansize Others you might like from the top of my head are; God is an Astronaught, Maserati, M83, The Calm blue Sea, Album Leaf, The 6 parts 7. Its a huuuge genre of music but there are some amazingly underated guitarists around in these bands.
  4. I agree with Mark. Sanding colour coats isn't needed unless you get any debris or bugs etc in there. Everything melts in so orange peel should be removed after the clear coats have cured.
  5. Nitro over poly is fine. Just scuff the poly surface with 320 first for proper adhesion then wait 30 days for the nitro to cure before you wetsand and buff. Do a couple of light misting coats first before you do the full coats
  6. +1 - scale 'em down. +2 - yer gonna break the internet!
  7. I really dig that! Looks like a great fun guitar! The thick binding on the inside of the upper cutaway is a great detail too
  8. Looking awesome so far! Can't wait to see the guilding - I love stuff like that!
  9. I agree with the above about how PRS probably did that stain. However, white stains DO exist, I have some of this brand; http://www.wood-finishes-direct.com/produc...based-stain.htm I havn't actually tried to dye a guitar white with it as I simply don't think it'll work well. I have used it to make things like pink stains and just to lighten up the colourtone waterbased stains etc. Bleach is the way to go for what you want to achieve
  10. I really like that! Great way to capture an anniversary of building! I really love the vibe that the guitar has overall- Looking forward to seeing it finished! I dont see any resemblance to that other logo posted either
  11. That shellac really brought out the character of the neck! Its really great and rich- watching this build closely
  12. I've finished a few fingerboards in shellac over the frets like you have. After a couple of hours of playing it started to come of the frets naturally. Play the hell out of her and they'll be good to go!
  13. I really dig the idea One thing for sure, it's going to make mass or bulk building these a breeze- Just make a ton of the necks and when someone orders one, all you have to do is make the body! Great designs too, metal without being too out there Im really looking forward to seeing how these develop!
  14. Another great month! Our Souls- I really like the vibe this has, the only niggle I have is the hidden covers for the jack etc seem to not fit that greatly Paulie MC - I LOVE the finish! The brush strokes on the top look great and really add texture, the back could do with more of a buff though Crow - The carving and finish is outstanding! Really great job, I'd like to see it with chrome covers though - just a preferance thing Restoration AD - Man thats a beautiful top! I love the skarf joint and the pinstriping, this would have gotten my vote Pinker Guitars - Great take on a student classic- I really like the maple scratchplate, great little guitar Avengers - I have a huge softspot for Icemen, I love the mirrored top and the back looks amazing with the contrast of wenge in that deep pocket, not a fan of the red binding though Hitone - Awesome!! Your logo looks really great on the clear body. I'd be really interested in hearing some clips of it Strandberg - I really love what you're doing, Ive shown your blog to a bunch of guys and everyone (even non guitarists) find it really interesting and innovative so I guess thanks for thinking outside the box Notyou - Im digging the overall vibe your builds have, some real cool features, the only thing I dont like is the bridge- Im not sure how well that will intonate Metalhead - Dude. Thats seriously one of the most drool worthy builds I think I've ever seen. Mad Kudos, I would be proud, eveything about it is breathtaking - you got my vote Accidental Chef - The build quality looks great and a nice use of woods, Im not that keen on the overall body shape though
