  1. An oldie I never entered in GOTM. Jet Jons Jag. Build here: SPECS: 3 piece Alder body Maple Neck, EIR Fretboard 34" scale Tele Headstock Jag bass redesign by my self. All cnc cut by me and finish work by hand. Finish was done with lacquer and 2 k clear coat. BadAss 2 bridge, EMG active pickups w/ three volumes and one tone control Hipshot tuners, 1 is a Drop D Banjo Frets, ( He likes them crisp as he places his fingers on the actual fret, the harmonics on this are a beast) Sorry I lost many pictures in a HD Crash, so this is the

  2. You certainly have what it takes to make tutorial videos! Substituting the filing hiss of the inlay pieces with a longish musical piece indicated perfectly the time needed for such fine job. This time the volumes were again pretty nicely balanced. The music wasn't too loud for my sensitive(ish) ears. Cutting the inlays with the band saw raised a couple of questions. First, how fine was the blade? And second, do you think that could be done with a laser cutter? The small ones seem to be very inexpensive second hand.

  4. I had company last weekend, and got nothing done here. I was able to steal an hour here and there though, and have gotten this thing to its final shape and sanded to 400. It is ready to start the dye regimen and to fill the voids in the burl. So finishing officially begins tomorrow! SR

  5. thanks bud, much appreciated. It's a lovely looking wood but so hard on tools, hand cutting fret slots in it is not fun!

  6. So I've always liked the semihemispherical fret look. I did an ok job on the last one but i feel I finally am on the right track. I experimented quite a while on different techniques and finally found one that works for me. I think I could've done it after pressing the frets in but I wanted the extra length to play with. Used a dozuki saw to cut a slot in a piece of radiused board. I cut the tang and file it down (carefully). I used my fret guru end file to round the end on 90 degrees and then transition to my z-file and run a few passes starting at a steep angle and working it bac

  7. Congratulations! Beautiful guitar and I dig the inlay! I got some ziricote myself recently.

  8. Getting back to the guitar, some shavings have actually been removed again. Continuing the pursuit of noise and dust management, I've tried out yet another hand tool -the Veritas Cornering tool kit. Worked really well for radiusing the edges consistently. Easy to use, as long as you're aware of the grain direction.

  9. My first foray in to Guitars of The Month! I remain humbled at the sheer artistry on display from all the usual members, here is my contribution. This is my 4th build, built in my shed in the back garden. It’s kind of a modern take on the Fender Esquire style that I have built for my nephew Louis. I hope it lives through many happy memories! The Norway Maple I purchased initially weighed a tonne, so a lot of planing on the router was necessary in order to bring the body thickness down from 45mm to 32mm. At I think I got it down to a reasonable weight. A few things I noticed during the bui

  10. Thank you I think most of them were taken with a 35mm f1.8, maybe one or two with a 50mm f1.4 (but probably not shot wide open). I find that both work really well for handheld shooting of progress pictures with whatever light is available. With the light varying between natural light and halogen spots, I could have paid better attention to the white balance. The cherry knobs are great, although the birch would match the E.A. Berg chisels, and I'm quite partial to it after having owned an 80's SonorLite drum kit which I regret having sold:
