  1. ^^thank you And here she is: I've also put together a video of the whole process, with a sound demo and also an overproduced song at the end: https://youtu.be/lEKFaflA2CQ Editing this video actually took longer than putting together the guitar xD I've made all kinds of mistakes with the paintjob... but that gives it the homemade appeal Sound and playability is top notch though. The roasted maple neck has 2 thin layers of Tru Oil, it feels really amazing. Roasted maple with a super thin finish might be the nicest feeling neck. Some people leave them co

  2. I still can't believe these works of art have fretting issues. This top looks insane, I'm not even sure it's wood we're looking at. Such a happy sad story man, but yeah. Take care of yourself first, rest will be easy. Burnout is one hell of a state, don't push yourself there.

  3. Been so cold, havent been able to spray. Still finishing up projects from months ago. This has been my longest turn around time ever. Also still having fretting issues. I also announced that i wont be taking custom orders anymore. Got way too stressful, got in over my head, and it was too much pressure. I couldnt handle it.

  6. Certainly is. I think it's a bit over-crazy that Cali has banned PEX down to suspicions of chemical migration from the material. They're way too cautious, what with their organi-friendly vegan piping. I get that they have good intentions, however I do think they're a little mad for the ban hammer sometimes.

  8. That's not actually correct. String tension has nothing to do with the overall length of the string. The only things that affect string tension are the mass of the string (gauge), the vibrating length (scale length) and the pitch it is tuned to. Any additional length behind the nut or saddles plays no part in the string tension for a given pitch. If you strung two Strats with the same gauge strings tuned to the same pitches and one neck had a reverse headstock, the tensions of each string would be identical. You can read more than you care to know about the subject here.

  9. Then it's time to cut buff and polish the finish. I start with 600 grit and work my way up to 3000 using abralon sanding pads. After I take it to the stewmac buffer and run it through the medium and then fine wheels I have set up. I must have been too preoccupied to get any pictures of the buffing station. I welded a sturdy base for it out of pipe cutoff scraps years ago that works wonderful. Then I paint all the electronics cavities with conductive shielding paint (stewmac this time but I've used the stuff from "less emf" before and also works great). Last picture is the guitars fi
