  1. So I'll kick this thread off with a guitar I just finished today! It's a multiscale Wayfarer 6 with some of the coolest ash I've found yet. -Specs- Ash body Pau ferro neck and fretboard 25-26" multiscale Elysian Pickups Hellfire with Alnico 8 mag Hipshot bridge and tuners Jescar stainless steel fretwire Odie's Oil finish I've been playing with a really fun finish for my other current project, I'll post more details and pics on that one tomorrow.

  2. Seriously though, it's great to log back in to PG and read through the last 6 months of cool builds! In the interim, I've been building a lot, switched schools and job, and have been generally going nonstop. This year though, I'm going to make it a priority to take time and engage with people and communities that I care about, and I look forward to what 2018 has in store!

  4. I also would round the edges - even if a very tight radius as you and @Liquorice suggest. Makes a big difference to the feel, it makes finishing easier (finish hates sharp edges), and it will be much less susceptible to damage. I like the figuring on the neck

  5. It's been a long time. Had a million and one jobs to do... But the big chunk of sapele is back on the workbench! I've almost finished sanding it and I'm about to put some grain filler in the pores. Hopefully I should have some pictures to post when I have some dye on the wood!

  6. Yeah there can be flames in ash or oak or what not, I think it looks great. I have few flamed ash veneers on my thread that might be going on top of my guitars. I have done my roundings with 3mm radius bit (roughly 1/8th), It feels great in my hands and looks nice also. But there is that one ancient Ibanez drawing from the stone age lingering around web and it says that those edges are rounded with 2,5mm radius ( 1/10th). Houli bools I can´t remember if "it" is with a capital letter or not.

  7. I got some work done this weekend. I finished up my 2nd neck and I did some carving on my body. The neck is wormy maple. I love the knots and colors that the worms make. I did have to fill one hole on the back of the headstock. It’s going on a tele body someone gave me. The body is ash, but it seems to have some slight flaming in places. I’ve never noticed this on ash before, but I’m new to this stuff so I’m sure you guys will enlighten me. I did a little carving in it, but I had another question. Do guys that build these types of bodies do a round over on the edges? Maybe 1/8t

  9. Hey! I apologize for the (massive) delay, I switched school programs and jobs in the middle of last year and haven't been nearly as engaged with Project Guitar as I would like to be. I definitely appreciate the samples, and I'm interested in talking to you more about a full top's worth of the figured carbon!

  10. Once the headstock carve is done it's time to add fret locator dots and side dots, and then radius and polish the fretboard. I can't remember ever having as much trouble fretting as this board gave me. I set the depth guide and dressed the slots several times as I radiused and polished the board in the hopes that I could keep it pristine, while fretting. I apparently wallowed out the ends of several slots and they wouldn't grip the tangs. I had to pull several frets and fill the slots with CA, level and re-polish the board and re-cut the slots to get them to hold the tangs. other fr
