  1. They re-create the '59 PAF (amongst others) to the exact original specs and materials. I put a set of the Wicked PAFs in my last build and totally love them. I've got a set of single coils on my kitchen table for my current build that I'm dying to hear. Several of my favorite players use these, so I thought I'd give them a try a few years back and learned why. SR

  2. Inlaying is the one thing I do not enjoy....much rather carve the top....or neck....or headstock.....or..... Your work is gorgeous. SR

  3. I found my hard drive that had way more build pics from earlier stages of this build, many of these were from the inlay process. I'll drop those in here, just before we do the dye. 1. Cut everything from a pattern. 2. tack it onto the board and scribe around it. Rub chalk on that to fill, wipe it off and you have your routing lines. 3. Route those sections out, you can go outside the lines some. 4. Fit all the pieces, and pack ebony dust in the gaps 5. flood with thin CA. 6. Block sand to get everything flush to the board again, and presto. Easy. LOL The ebony dust trick is so cool it's not

  4. Never tried vegamite though. Sounds particularily nasty to be honest haha.

  5. Yeah the tonebone has the same one output problem as the rest of the switches I see around. These are all for two amps into one cab, what I was attempting doesn't seem to be possible with the equipment I have. My idea to use two ABYs won't work either because to run a 2 speaker setup the connections need to be in the 2x16ohm or 1x8 channels. Being that my cabs are 16s when I split the signal the amp going to 8 would probably do damage. I've ordered one of these.. will just put it between the board and the amps with one cab powered by one amp. Thought about buying another cab for the Orange,

  6. These things happen. I wanted to point out that you'd built the body back to front, but obviously it's far too late now.

  7. Some more pics of the woods involved here. The grain on the neck piece is pretty much perfect. Flatsawn for the top. I'm going to resaw this piece on Saturday. Black & white goodness, with blind slots! Some more body pics And for the padauk guitar: I've been saving this piece of pau ferro for a few years now, finally found the right guitar for it. It'll get ebony binding rather than blind slots. The grain on the top edge is my favorite part, I think. Thanks for looking through my huge batch of pics!

  8. Hi Guys, Sorry, been away from the site for a while but have made some more progress on this one. Not far off from completion, maybe two weeks or so. Masses of updates to follow... Got the inlays in... I fixed up the bodged jack socket with a different style jack plate Drilled the ferrule holes. The ferrules aren't pushed in but the lines not too bad for a first attempt.

  9. Welcome aboard. I'd wager most of the forum regulars here are self-taught, or at least picked up the bulk of their initial knowledge from internet or printed resources, myself included. If you're a practical, hands-on kind of person, you may find it logical in the short term to just dive in and have a go. I'd suggest taking on a smaller project for starters and build up from there - say put a cheap kit guitar together, or construct a body for a premade neck you may have lying around. Once you have some basic experience, you can progressively up the ante with your builds - make a neck
