    You may have regrets about that axle-flag, but I don't think you should have any regrets about scratching around on a 70's RD350... *...jealous...
  2. Pariahrob's build log

    Which conductive paint do you use Rob? I've been planning on checking out Bare Conductive's 'Electric Paint', but it would be good to get a heads up on any alternatives.
  3. 2.5itims build thread 2017

    Congratulations on the new arrival mate That guitar is awesome too, I love how the light colour of the fretboard seems to flow into the body.
  4. Latest build "Bertha"

    Welcome Matti, I have to agree with these guys, that is one lovely guitar. The sallow burl looks almost translucent. I reckon we'd all like to see a few of your other builds.
  5. Spray finish - neck on or off

    Maybe Will is making a Sprat-ocaster. or a Bass. ...I'll get my coat...
  6. Absolutely gorgeous Norris, well worth the wait! It's hard to believe it's your first build, there's so many brilliant little touches. Such a cool colour too. Can't wait to see more.
  7. What a cool little tool looks nicely made too.
  8. My Les Paul

    Congrats for the GOTM win, looking forward to more inlay wizardry...
  9. Oak for body

    I've noticed that some guitarists dislike Oak for various reasons too. I'll not argue with them when it comes to discussions of how wood affects tone, but I'd disagree about aesthetics, I think Oak guitars look pretty cool. I've got an old Westone Thunder bass that's made of oak and it looks great. Some of the guys here will probably know the details better, but I think Westone guitars were made at the same factory as Aria pro basses in the 1980's (more as a tribute than a copy) and they look very similar to Aria Pro's, many of which were Oak too. So, yeah. One vote for Oak
  10. Osorio - The four years gap

    absolutely bloody gorgeous. I dunno which I like more, silver or gold hardware, both look great on that dark wood. And that shape is such a cool fusion of classic and modern. Hats off to you Osorio, you've played a blinder
  11. Pariahrob's build log

    Completely agree, the maple/wenge looks fantastic, especially with that beautiful top. How did you find working with the tulipwood Rob? I used it on a project a couple of years ago (for Louis Vuitton, don't you know..) and really liked using it, but found it a bit soft.
  12. Limba 6 Multiscale Filter'Tron

    If Ironman decided to buy himself a guitar, I reckon he'd go for this one. Looks great, well done
  13. Ibanez headstock shape ?

    Hi Liquorice, welcome to PG I'm a first time builder too and I completely understand that disheartened feeling that you can get sometimes. I think you've come to the right place - I was new to this when I signed up here a year ago and in that time I've learned more from these guys than I could from a huge pile of books (hoping to finally finish my 'V' before Christmas!) Just keep checking out these guys' projects and see how they work and it'll answer questions you didn't even know you had to ask yet. But definitely keep at it, it's incredibly rewarding and addictive and those disheartening moments will become fewer and further between. Regarding your Ibanez style headstock, are you using a CAD program to help you design your guitar? I ask as you referred to a 'dwg-drawing', I wondered if you were using AutoCAD or something similar (DWG being an ACAD file type)? If so could you plan out hole positions of the 7 tuners, the centreline of the guitar neck and body, and then sketch by eye the outline around the string/hole positions? the shape wouldn't be identical to the Ibanez that inspires it, but you can get the 'balance' right and I always think it's those little variations that make guitars inspired by others more individual. If I've got the wrong end of the stick and you aren't using any CAD software, I'd recommend trying it. There are some excellent free programs out there (ie the awesome Fusion 360) that really help when designing intricate stuff like guitars.
  14. Mate, that just looks incredible. Like Mr natural, I can't wait to hear how it sounds.
  15. Limba 6 Multiscale Filter'Tron

    Nice great looking solution there.
