  1. very very cool! Such an awesome choice of wood!
  2. thats really wierd, when i search it, it came up as 0 found....thanks though
  3. I had a topic named giant killer and now I can't find it.....can someone help me locate it?
  4. I may not be as experienced as any of you. I do turn out a good product. A product that other luthiers and experienced guitarists say is high quality. I asked about the Fijian wood because I had never used it. I thank you for your thoughts regarding my decision though. And you assume that I woke up one day and decided this. And that I am oblivious to reality. This isn't the case. I have done a lot of research, and using this website's forum is one of the final steps of my research. I'm going about this very slowly, and am enjoying this endeavor. I will keep you guys posted on my progress, successes and failures. But once again thank you for your comments.
  5. I've used sanding sealer that I bought from a craft store. It's water based, so you can thin it out with water. I used a sponge brush and thinned it out a lot and applied a bunch of coats.
  6. Very, very, very good to know..... Thank you!!!!
  7. Got some quotes on wood today. Anyone have any experience using Fijian mahogany? What are the differences between Fijian and Honduran?
  8. As for competion, no one in my area stands out. They all came from the same school, which offers 6 classes. I'm going to be working with an old repairman that is looking to retire in the next while. Even the other repairmen are reaching that age as well. It's a perfect time for me to get into it around here, and work on my reputation. I'm not looking to make loads of cash, and my question about the return is purely to assess risk.
  9. Let's make this hypothetical then.,... I understand what you are saying, and I'm not trying to be a jerk. But I'd still like to get some sort of estimate. It's all a part of research....and I do thank you for the info that you posted Bandsaw Spray booth vacuum Router planer stationary belt sander table saw etc.... And marketing is what you said reputation is: Marketing is the activity, set of institutions, and processes for creating, communicating, delivering, and exchanging offerings that have value for customers, clients, partners, and society at large. (Copied and pasted from the american marketing association) Reputation would be under the broader category process.
  10. So it's really just a thought. I'd like to get some feedback from some of you guys. My idea is that building guitars would come last and the real "consistent" income would come from repairs. I understand that a great deal of marketing would be needed. As for advertising; I would mainly focusing on word of mouth. How much on a good year would you make....how much on a bad year. (you can pm this answer if you want) I currently have 0 tools. So an estimate for start up would really help. With that estimate in mind, how long until I see a return? More specifically how many customers would I need to see a return? How much shop space would be ideal? If you would like to include any other info, that would be greatly appreciated.... Thanks!
  11. Long overdue update. Pictures: Black stain to add the "pop" Red Stain 1st coat of clear
  12. I'm looking for someone to build me a neck. The neck: 25.5 scale length. 24 stainless steel jumbo frets on an ebony fretboard. Mahogany neck. nut width is for an R3 locking nut. Compound radius of 10-16 (10-17.5 is preferable). Headstock would be just a tilted paddle. The fretboard has a slight overhang of roughly 7.5mm; the 24th fret is flush with the heel. My other guitar has a stewmac neck on it, so I would like the back contours to match with that. My email is zeroiv@live.ca. Please send me your quote
