Crusader Posted February 15, 2009 Report Share Posted February 15, 2009 (edited) Hi I've enjoyed reading and expressing opinions on this forum so far and would like to show some of the guitars I've made The first one here was inspired by seeing Dave Hill's (of Slade) guitar "The Super Yob" It made me realise a guitar doesn't have to be the usual shape (this was a very long time ago btw) Its made of Western Australian Jarrah. I thought I might 'discover' a fantastic new tone-wood but it sounds like an "arking" crow I made this to tune down to D and is two frets longer than the Fender scale which is 25 1/2 inches or 647.7mm. This is 727mm It has the tuning pegs as close together as possible to eliminate the need for a locking nut As mentioned it doesn't sound the best (A bit like too much Maple) but has heaps of sustain and some good tonal qualities due to the longer scale length...? It nearly went on the fire-heap a few years ago but I decided to keep it for some reason... If you look closely there is a screw in the back which gains access to the end of the trussrod Its wedge-shaped so you can see the fretboard more easily, which works and also makes it comfortable to play More to come soon Edited February 15, 2009 by Crusader Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
