    Pariahrob's build log

    You can do it @Prostheta. I've sold many tremolos to customers who used them on regular guitars by using the knobs as fine tuners. They're extremely precise and now, with ball bearings, they're also ultra smooth.

    Pariahrob's build log

    Hi to everybody. Nice to hear you like them @Pariahrob. I have recently redesigned my saddle by substiting the teflon washers with micro ball bearings and changing the gear ratio. I have also rounded the upper part of the saddle for a more ergonimic shape. I make the same modifications also for the bass saddles. There are no more coin slots 'cause they are not necessary.

    Guitar Of The Month - January 2018

    New year, new guitar. Hope it can be more lucky than her seven strings sister I posted the last month.. This is one of the three prototypes I made hence do not force me to propose the third one too Here are the specs name: (H)851-6S scale length: 25.5" number of strings: 6 fingerboard wood: rosewood number of frets: 22 with MOP dot neck wood: 5 piece laminated padauk/quilted maple/rosewood/quilted maple/padauk body wood: poplar top wood: quilted poplar neck pu: Seymour Duncan Jazz bridge pu: Seymour Duncan JB nut: CHROME Technology for Musicians (H)Nuts bridge: CHROME Technology for Musicians (H)S single bridge saddles (new version with micro ball bearings) This is my thread Here are some pics: Hope You like it. www.technologyformusicians.com www.facebook.com/technologyformusicians Ciao, Alberto

    If you take a look to the three guitars I've posted I have realized three custom baseplate for our nuts, 'cause I used traditional double action truss rod (I could not find Music Man style truss rod with spoke wheel). Obviously I can't produce this baseplate in 6/7/8/9... version, straight or angled in different degrees for different scale length, in chrome, black and gold finish. It would be impossible have them in stock or produce them singularly under request. Hence my suggest is to use truss rods with spoke wheel where is possibile, or glue the single baseplate above the truss rod hole access with epoxy. Personally I bought 5 truss rods with spoke wheel for my next builds... PS: nice job with the baseplate. PPS: From the fretboard inlay I realized only now who you are... You build great guitars Andrew.

    Guitar Of The Month - December 2017

    About two years are passed from my last build. During this time I concentrated on developing my hardware until last release about one month ago. Meantime I have worked into my own guitar design, changing some details from my last build, such as lower horn shape and jack position and make some tries by using or not zero fret to understand which is the best option in my opinion. Probably this time I'm really close, except some minor technical details, to the final version of my own design. I've build three different prototype versions and I want to give a chance this month to this seven strings,. Here are the specs name: (H)851-7S scale length: 26.5" - 25.5" number of strings: 7 fingerboard wood: ziricote number of frets: 22 with abalone dot neck wood: 5 piece laminated padauk/quilted maple/rosewood/quilted maple/padauk body wood: maple / zebrano top wood: quilted poplar neck pu: Di Marzio Liquifier 7 bridge pu: Di Marzio Blaze 7 nut: GOLD Technology for Musicians (H)Nuts bridge: GOLD Technology for Musicians (H)S single bridge saddles (new version with micro ball bearings) This is my thread Here are some pics: Hope You like it. www.technologyformusicians.com www.facebook.com/technologyformusicians Ciao, Alberto

    As wood selection for bodies I opted for: six strings with standard scale: poplar back, figured poplar top. six strings with multiscale: maple, padauk, zebrano and padauk seven strings with multiscale: maple, zebrano, figured poplar Here are the guitars unfinished with their necks. I have no good pics for the bodies making process....

    Here is one neck from front side, ready for the truss rod installation. This is the back view Here is a special jig I made for gluing the fretboard. I use some non stick film to avoid the glue flows onto the neck....

    Here I am again... A lot of time is passed from my last post.

    How to make a custom hard case

    I used this alu closing profile: http://www.thomann.de/it/adam_hall_6103.htm As you can see the inner space is 9,5mm hence I used a 8mm thick plywood. You have to consider the thickness of the sinthetic leather. Regarding the foam affecting the finish of the guitar... I have not had problems with it. There's many commercial cases that uses that kind of foam.
