So for my second full build I'm going for a replica of the Turner Model one, as played by Lindsey Buckingham! I've admired this one since "The Dance" first came out. I recall attempting to replicate the tone with my Samick Les Paul in the band I was in back in the day... I grabbed some Tas Blackwood for this one as I've read it goes close to Mahogany, and I'm liking using local timbers. A bit of work on the planer getting the wood flat and thickessed. For the neck I've laminated some merbau between Blackwood, Hopefully it'll work nicely... Glue up, some bandsawing then a relaxing time with the hand plane flattening it out.
very cool pod cast if anyone is interested- its long- 2hrs+- but very cool discussion between Rick Turner and Jack Casady- who had his customized guild starfire bass stolen in 1969- and returned just a short while ago. The story takes many turns and somewhat unrelated tangents- but very interesting- at least I thought so, (and if you listen to it- comment if your heart sunk when you heard that all too familiar sound of an instrument being banged into something)- ouch (careful bub!!) https://www.fretboardjournal.com/podcast/podcast-139-rick-turner-jack-casady-dan-schwartz-fretboard-summit-2016/?mc_cid=6312af510c&mc_eid=44ded9edeb
