  1. Hello. I am wondering where I can purchase an ebony fretboard, suitable for an 8 string guitar with a 28" scale.
  2. Project guitar Hello ! Thanks for stopping by ! I am building my first electric guitar (thus me being new on projectguitar.com). I will make a review of my build on YouTube or instructables and I'll gladly share it here, but I'm not finished yet! I need your help with the finish. This is my thinline/Nashville tele. I would have had loads of photos to show you but I still haven't figured out the 501 MB file thing for uploading photos.... Here are a few facts about my build : It is made out of two mahogany panels (each made of two pieces) glued one on top of the other. The "glue line / separation" shows a lot, and I've had to fix some holes on the sides ; I want to hide them. Right now, I have dyed the body brown, sanded it down to give the grain a kick, and I've given it one layer of spray varnish (spray varnish being the closest I could find to spray lacquer) I do not have access to spraying equipment, it's all aerosols for me. I want to give the body a dark burst on the sides but I realized on some scrap wood that the black paint have doesn't look good with the orange wood at all. This is where you can help me : what kind of product and method can I use ? Will it be another type of paint? More dye? Really really dark brown varnish that goes black if I spray it heavily? Thanks for reading, I hope someone has advice!

  5. I'm having some trouble selecting pickups for a project I'm doing. I'm constructing a Mahogany Warrior body that I'd like to use with a Jackson DK2M neck. I'd like to use an aggressive set of HBs for this project considering the body shape. I'm just not sure what I should use. I'm considering HBs that are balanced in the tonal range like Seymour Duncans "Black Winter" (high: 6/10 mid: 6/10 low: 6/10). I'm not sure, technically, if this is a good choice considering the body/neck materials. Anyone have a recommendation?

  7. Just wondering, I have 1 gallon of titebond's white glue. I already glued my mahogany body blank with it. But now I'm starting to second guess myself. I know everybody here loves titebond's wood glue (yellow). Is the white stuff good enough? Should I change from now on and use only the yellow stuff? Even worst, should I redo my body blank with titebond 1?
  8. Well, as some of you may have noticed is that I took quiet the internet break, and in the 2 weeks I've pumped up almsot two guitars, this is one of them. The other (superstrat) just needs the bridge posts and tuners drilled, which I'll do eventually. The camera was gone for most of the time, so I was only able to snap these pics now, and one with an iphone a bit back.
