  1. Meh it happens! It was more of a boredom build then anything, I was bored, the torches and welder was there sharing at me, going plaaaaay with meeeeee. For what I have invested, I could flip it for over 3 times what i got into it and be laughin, so we will see, I am still looking for an old shovel head
  2. The ground is bad on the input of the amp.
  3. Started off as a TX 500 frame, I cut the rear end off, built the hard tail with a 3 inch stretch and a 2 inch drop. Installed the 8 inch over front end. Got a bare xs 650 block that I installed new. 50 over high compression pistons, web cams camshaft with high lift lobes, titanium valves and heavy duty springs and retainers. At this point I am waiting on new seat, springs, key switch and rear fender.
  4. Nice bike Wes, I am in the middle of building another chopper. Yes its a good thing I am young because that hard tail sucks a big old weiner
  5. This is my cat repellent Oh ya, he is only 3 months old there, hes 6 months old now and almost 60 pounds....
  6. Looks good, I love the carve and I actually like the look of the fretboard, its almost like, it flows with the body. Plus, later on down the road, when you get more practice in, you can add a nice inlay pattern to it if you wanted Curtis
  7. On my newest guitar, a Les Paul copy from the 80's, I changed pickups, tuners, bridge and tail peice and knobs, I am also working on wiring a "varitone" in place were the neck and bridge selector is and having one knob become the bridge and pickup selector Curtis
  8. why not a fabric top? There was a tutorial on the main page, it has been done on here by one or 2 people, it can look very unique as well, also lets you open up a whole range of woods to use for the body to give you different tones. For example, You can use your snake skin for the fingerboard, and then let yourself use a maple neck, and say an alder body. This will open your tonal possibilities, opposed to using a mahogany body with a maple top, Check out the main site under the Tutorials section, it should be there, if not then run a search through the forums and your should find
  9. Butterscotch Carmel in colour looks hot with chrome hardware, If it were mine, i would smoothe the carve a little more and take some more outta the horns, the body looks ok to me, maybe just a smidge more in the waist area, Curtis
  10. Thanks everyone, I will get to work on this ASAP
  11. Ok, How would i even go about clamping the dowel in place?
  12. when you say glue that creeps, what exactly do you mean, i havent heard that term before,
  13. Hi all, I have made a slight mistake on a body, both will be easily fixed, I just have a few questions before i go ahead and do it, One, The body is Basswood, I need to fill about, a 3/4 to 1 inch sized hole, i was thinking about getting a peice of hardwood dowel, drilling the hole out to the correct size and gluing in the peice of dowel, sand flush, is this ok to do, will the end grain of the dowel mess up my solid colour finish? Two, I want to fill my neck pick up, mainly because, i only have one pick up left and its a Duncan 59, suited to be in the bridge position, can I fill
