  1. The Oracle - First Build in 3 Years - Glad To Be Back!

    At least it's spelled right here
  2. I reeeeeeally want to see some of this stuff in person.
  3. Limba 6 Multiscale Filter'Tron

    I'll be a third, then. I find that it sands quite nicely, though I don't find the smell so appealing.
  4. Being able to see your creative process is always a fun ride. Looking forward to more! I'd love to see a proper 8 string from you some day though
  5. Limba 6 Multiscale Filter'Tron

    Love the pinstripe!
  6. 24 Magnum

    Very nice! I bet that phoenix looks craaaaazy in person.
  7. Kemp Guitars UK Build Thread #2

    Huh, never seen birch like that. I like it!

    And the padauk Pulsar is done! This stuff is damned hard to photograph properly, the red just blows out my camera's sensor at every opportunity. I'm hoping to shoot a little video demo, these pickups are delightful!
  9. Yep, my posts on forums outside of PG have all capsized as expected. I don't know who over in Bucketland thought this was a brilliant move, but I'm sure as hell not paying 400 bucks a year for image hosting. I wouldn't have minded paying something more reasonable, as I do understand that all that storage and bandwidth costs them money. So yeah, I'm just direct uploading here from now on, as I should have been doing in the first place.
  10. Fretlight + Variax hybrid

    This is super cool! Any chance of a video walkthrough/demo?

    Thanks Scott! Bouncing back to the padauk Pulsar for a day, I just got oil applied.
  12. Knightro Guitars 2017

    Exactly, it just sits on the binding during the initial flood coat/overnight soak, then wipes off easily after that. It's pretty much the most hassle-free finish I can think of.

    Back to the body for a sec. Working on bolt-ons is great, I can just finish the parts independently and bring them together in the assembly stage. The finish here is my usual Odie's Oil, applied to a P600 body by (gloved) hand with no filler. The Odie's doesn't dramatically darken the ziricote or muddy the grain, and even brings out a bit of curl that was hiding in the limba. Now I just need to leave the body alone for a few days while the oil cures. Next time: frets!

    The pale moon fretboard arrived on schedule, so let's get into gluing it up. Quick preview before glue prep, I think it's going to be gnarly: So. on to work. As you guys know, I'm a big fan of preplanning and simplifying various construction processes with acrylic templates. My neck templates include a set of holes that are transfer-punched into the neck face and underside of the fretboard, which are then drilled to accept 1/8" steel pins. This allows me to simply apply glue, drop the fretboard in place, and move through the clamping procedure without worrying about the fretboard sliding out of place. Neck-side alignment holes: Stainless pins secured in matching holes under fretboard: Glue, clip, clamp. EZPZ: Nice joint, no worries: Luminlay Super Blue dots: Radius smoothed out, slots cleaned, ready for frets:
  15. Knightro Guitars- Exploder MS8 My first big (in many ways) and serious commission! I had a blast designing and building this beast. The mission here was pretty straightforward: take inspiration from classic rock icons, chuck it in a blender with modern extended range and multiscale amenities, render results in the most dramatic limba I could get my dusty little hands on. Without further ado, here's the Exploder! -Specs- 26.5-28" multiscale 8 string Figured black limba body Katalox neck with carbon reinforcement Ebony fretboard with super jumbo stainless wire Instrumental Electromagnetics SFTY3-8 pickup set Hipshot hardware, nickel plated Odie's Oil finish Finally, here's a pretty comprehensive demo video done by the owner:
