  1. View File Surunmaa 8-string compound scale guitar The Surunmaa design is an outline for a basic compound scale 8-string guitar over a 720mm (28,35") and 666mm (26,25") compound scaling. Initially designed for a single soapbar pickup (EMG 40-style, Seymour Duncan soapbars, etc.) with a minimal control pattern, the Surunmaa is a guitar focused on a tight toneful low end whilst maintaining a looser top end for more expressive solo work. The bridge configuration features the recently-released Hipshot Solo bridges allowing through-body stringing to be added. The modern headstock style derives from both an 80s Japanese influence with the a more modern Parker Fly-ish slant. Visit the support thread for information on build specifics and for further information on this design. Submitter Prostheta Submitted 06/28/2014 Category Instrument Plans

  3. OK, I'm not one of the best when it comes to build threads, but as I already does this in a lokal guitar forum for the customer I might at well share with you guys too. This is a build based on my NorthStar body. However it is going to be a headless guitar with compound scale (fanned frets) and 8-Stings. Oh, and compound radius too. Here's a drawing Body wood, Brazilian cedar Body top, Masur Birch, a quite common birch burl in Finland and Sweden Neck is going to be multi laminated, with a lot of things going on, but mainly maple with mahogany stringer The customer got to choose from one of these striped mahogany fretboards Body being glued up EDIT:Forgot, hardware from fellow Swede Ola Strandberg and it will also have an EndurNeck profile, that Ola is kind enough to let me license for this build. Or anyone that just pay his quite reasonable fee.

    From the album: Prostheta's Past builds

    An old prototype design incorporating a modified Ken Lawrence-ish headstock and an RG-ish body. This instrument used one of the first Hipshot 8-string bridges ever made circa 2000.
