  1. I love the detailed explanation of not only the process, but the thinking behind it.
  2. That tiger's eye is to die for! I might have to try that on one of my builds.
  3. LOL! Gorgeous build Andy! You are an inspiration (one of many on this board).
  4. A pair of four way rotary switches with a three way toggle would give a LP style appearance, but with a bunch more options. Plus, the rotaries would be easier to mount.
  5. For getting a true flat surface on a neck (or other part), I like a piece of granite from a counter shop. So far, I have had excellent luck getting cast off pieces from an order. I just go to the stone shop and ask if I can buy a chunk of left over granite. Since I don't care what it looks like, it's easy to source the stone. I have gotten chunks left over from sink cut outs and end cuts for free. I use pressure sensitive adhesive backed sandpaper and run the part over the stone instead of the other way around.
  6. Looks like shoddy templates to me, but a total newb.
  7. I saw the four position Telecaster switches that Obsidian offers and got to thinking I could use two of those to create an interesting sound chain in a dual humbucker design (one switch per humbucker). My thinking is that I can wire the switches to give me the following options: single coil (bridge side), single coil (neck side), both single coils (parallel), and humbucker. Combine that with a three way toggle switch (ala Les Paul) and I imagine I could have the ability to create a guitar with 24 pickup sounds (4 single coil, 6 dual single coil, 3 humbucker, 4 tripple single coil, 1 quad single coil, 4 humbucker/single coil, and 2 humbucker/parallel single coil). Has anyone here tried something like this? Has anyone heard of anyone doing this?
  8. Lovely guitar you built there. Anyone should be happy to have it in their collection.
  9. I hear that. I already have my next 5 builds planned. So far, the next three are kits, but I plan to build a scratch made body for the fourth in line.
  10. As I get more into the woodworking aspect of guitar building, I will need to invest in a dust collection system. I will probably cobble something together using a Shopvac and HEPA filter.
