  1. Hi @jpecc, feel free to open a post of your project here if you want feedback from us, better than posting in a forum which requires to be registered to see the post. Registrations usually take a couple of minutes and most of us lazy dogs are not willing to do. But for some weird reason we love to see pics of people working so you will get some comments for sure. Your guitar looks really cool for a first attempt, you should definitely keep building more of them. I voted for the one which is in the stage, because that's a real plus to me. I'm not fan of headless and I really don't like the signature in the top, but yeah... it's in the stage.
  2. You can change the file extension manually, .jpeg and .jpg are the same. Nice skull btw.

    Don't you assemble them before painting? Nice work BTW.

    The saw gets stuck in the slots because it's not perfectly perpendicular during the whole process. It happens to me too, so you're not alone. What I do is, as soon I notice it gets stuck, I try to find the right angle, moving the blade left-right and continue without forcing the saw. If you force the saw, you might bend the blade and therefore increase the problem. This is similar to handling a tricky key in a door, you have to find the right position before open it.

    Is there any reason why you didn't make the fret slots yet?... I find really difficult to make the slots once the fretboard its radiused and tappered, so once again you got me expectant. Can't wait to see how you manage this challenge.

    Great job and glad to hear that, I had problems in the past sanding ebony next to maple and couldn't find a way to clean that mess, that was my concern. Keep it up!

    Those stars are really cool, but I'm afraid that mixing ebony with maple is not a good idea. Hope I'm wrong. Looking forward to the result.

    Side dots need to be drilled just 2-3 mm, more than that is totally useless. I always use a hand drill ("berbiquí" in spanish) to be more precise and avoid complications. Nice work, as always!
  9. Here is where I fail... there's always a small triangle left from the corner stuck to the fretboard... If I want to get rid of it, then the file pass through the tape and makes a mark in the wood, even if the file is flat in that side. Really annoying. Thanks for the detailed explanation btw, I'll try next time.
  10. Yeah, I also want frets like those... tell us the secret, please.

    Great work man... not entirely fan of the body shape, but your guitars have their own personality, I must say. This last one looks really pro... love it!
  12. That's because the etching is done before the sharpening, I believe... got addicted to watch videos from blacksmiths in youtube. Really fascinating stuff, some Damascus knives are made with more than 1000 layers. Forgot to say... that handle you made is gorgeous.
  13. That's awesome... but how do you ensure a perfect radius in the jig?
