rokeros Posted April 20, 2006 Report Share Posted April 20, 2006 (edited) THIS IS MY BIG 1... MY FUTURE IDEA... MODEL... SOMETHING THAT HAS BEEN BEATING MY HEART VENTRICLES SINCE I BEGUN MY FIRST PROJECT...................... Some may find this hilarious, and they should, but I want to do something that no one has ever thought possible or would just seem like a whole load of crap.... I want to and there is no stopping my mind on building a series of guitars/basses with all the current technology and theories that mankind have research since the 30's when mr. rickenbacker discovered the electricrified fretted tincan. I know that I have just have only completed my first instrument, but luthiery is truly an addictive hobby all of you guys should understand. But I don't just think of my next build after completeing my first. I go beyond that to the 30th or 1000th guitar! There are just so many options that are avaliable for guitar and I want to try them all out. But then this stream of thoughts shortly ended when a stumbled on an idea that I could maybe combine all these options into one instrument. It sounds immposible I know, since there are different options and styles for different purposes, but what if the best of these compared with their advantages and disadvantages and maybe there could be one model for metal, one for jazz/blues/rockability, one for general rock etc...My mine is literally erupting like a volcano with ideas for my 5 empty years when I move to the UK for university. I have the space, now all I need are the plans, clients and the faith from all you noobs(me...) and pros (too many to mention) to forfill my craziness and desire. I want to build not just someone's dream guitar, but everyone's dream guitar, something that any person would see magnificant in that instrument from the truss rod to the straplocks to the sustain etcetcetcetc....... I would totally understand if you guys thinks I am a lunatic, and I don't blame you guys...I am myself quite overwhelmed to this moment. But I want to open this thread for ideas from finishing to woods to hardware to manufacturing methods and ergonomics in order to forfill the ultimate instrument. for example the other day, I was researching on finishings and neck joints, and who would have guessed that making neck wood contact body wood would increase sustain by 50%??? I mean its stuff and detail like this that I believe that people are missing out and if all the best of the best in guitars and basses are combined into one and not kept to themselves or as a company, then I truly think that the aesthetics, feel, and tone from this monstrosity will be beyond anything or anysomething on this earth. So please guys, I know I am pushing it, but could you guys maybe contribute to this thread and if successful, I think it wouldn't just benefit me, but to all you guys and you never know, may change the whole thinking aspect of fretted instruments to join all of God's created minds into one and share and think outside the box and I dunno. Something might happen.. But to start off and save from hands from numbing on the keyboard, I want to find out which truss rod is the best and currently I know that modern day two way truss rods are the ideal neck fixers and I also know that carbon fiber rods add sustain and make a neck stronger, but what else do you guys know that I don't. Soon when this is all done, I will write it all down in a list and share it to you all for easy reading. And secondly, I heard that using spray guns are better by far than rattle cans. I reasearched on SATA for their guns, but which one is best and why, thanks anyways. I need to shut up before I lose my account by ya, there you go...
