  1. From there I glued the fret board to the neck, trimmed the edges of the neck blank and head stock, then moved onto the inlay work on the fret board. I was originally planning on just doing timber dot inlays, but they just looked kind of boring. I went hunting on Google images for some inspiration and found something very similar to what I settled on. The blue inlay is a reconstituted stone. The light timber inlay is an off cut from the neck blank. Then I used side dots in the front to finish it off. I made a few mistakes when I radiused the fret board and ended up sand

  2. At the begining I was afraid the Fishman flounce are over-rated/advertised They are not. There is some delicacy in the sound of a passive with the active string attack. Dunno how it works but it does. Asked my friend to play a bit for a sound test line 6 spider ii 150+reverb+chorus(?)+delay

  3. I don't know exactly what that is, but it sounds like it's just what you wanted. I hope you get some good use out of it no matter what or how you use it. As far as electric stuff, I ran an extension cord through a hole in the wall to the outside today. I had to cut the wires to go through the hole and reconnect the two of them on the other side, but that's about as brave as I get when it comes to electric stuff. Oh, yeah, I can also screw in a light bulb and change out a ceiling fan. Ron

  5. Hey everyone. I've been lurking for a couple of months, so thought it was time to introduce myself. I'm Nic, from Western Australia. I did an electric guitar building course back in 2015 and absolutely fell in love with the process and promised myself I would make another one. I've had a couple of false starts since then; one later in 2015 where I bought some Australian timbers online but wasn't particularly enamoured with them when they showed up in person (qld maple neck which was nice, some random, brownish aussie fret board which never really tickled me, and a camphor laurel b

  7. I ordered a New Stage Right 5 watt tube amp. They are hard to find at times. For $124 shipped. Been on back order for about 10 months and they only got 100 of them. LOL. Comes with a celestion 8" speaker. Sounds farty at higher volumes ( I expected that with an 8" speaker ). Sounds real good with my 4/12 cab. LOL. Mainly looked to get as it is if nothing else a good source for parts. I can't get the transformers, tubes and the 5F1 Fender type chassis for that. LOL. Only has a volume with a tone control. Very similar to the old Fender Champ. So it will get mods after I get some other

  8. Not the best way of fitting the rail support brackets as having the cross-cut fence "locks" the two halves of the fence together. I might have to re-think that a little, however it isn't the end of the world to remove the cross-cut fence anyway. Just a ballache having to store it somewhere when not in use. The cross-cut fence will see a lot of action when we get around to remodelling our kitchen and making solid wood door frames, some glazed and some with raised panels perhaps. Either way, solid mortise and tenon joinery will be sweet and easy.

  9. If this helps - there is no last place here. It's great to be recognized by peers, but it's not what drives us in this small but strong community. Recognition happens all the time. If there were 500k people in here, a large money prize, and a date with Scarjo, well now then that's different.

  10. Next step was starting on the neck blank, I got the truss rod routed in, then cut the angle for the top of the head stock. I don't have the right tools for that job, so ended up cutting it with a cheapo hand saw, then just cleaning up with the hand plane, very happy with how it came out

  11. First step was cutting the fret slots. I wasn't sure how to do that and figured if I couldn't work it out there wasn't much point continuing. Ha ha. I tried a few methods to cut them by hand but my accuracy was at best so so. In the end, I made up a little mitre box jig and cut it with my small laser cutter.

  12. Talking of electrics, I had a piss take offer on my house yesterday, On the grounds that it needed a new boiler (I replaced the boiler 3 years ago) But they also said our electrics looked terrible and hand't been checked since 2012 so the house clearly needed to be rewired... This was after they walked into my garage and saw my drum sander, extractors, bandsaw, drill press, bobbin sander, belt sander routers etc. I wonder how I run all those power tools. On top of that - my dad is an electrician, I've got the best electrics in town
