  1. The ground is bad on the input of the amp.
  2. 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
  3. 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
  4. 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 something. Curtis
  5. 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
  6. Thanks everyone, I will get to work on this ASAP
  7. Ok, How would i even go about clamping the dowel in place?
  8. when you say glue that creeps, what exactly do you mean, i havent heard that term before,
  9. 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 the pickup route with, say a peice of walnut, as i have a peice ready at hand that will only need to be planed down to fit in, or should i get another peice of basswood? This is going to be a solid colour, so I am not too worried about the woods not having matching grain or anything, I just want to know if the end grain of the dowel will mess up my finishing, and if you folks reccomend using the walnut or another peice of basswood (i think i have a peice left over, it maybe too thin though) Thanks, Curtis
  10. good luck with the project, where are you thinking of relocating the toggle switch, and what will you do to cover up the hole, if your not going to re finish the body, I would suggest, keeping the toggle where it is, and adding a kill switch down near the volume/tone knobs, or have the kill switch where the toggle is right now, and have the toggle down near the volume and tone knobs, Curtis
  11. ........and just to throw everyone off course, did you folks hear Ozzy was releasing a new album in stores may 23? With none other then Zakk on guitar, I heard one of the new tracks today on the radio station, it sounded, kind of heavy, but the solo was just to thumbs way down, too digital and just a complete wanking on the guitar, And yes, the one Zakk is holding in that picture looks alot different then the production guitar, Curtis
  12. It could be possibly made to look nice, if you taken the back end and instead of it just like a Vee, shape it a little more rounded, and it may not look too too bad, But his version of the national anthem was just noise, you cant really top Jimi Hendrix's version. Curtis
  13. Well, I finally have a day off work so i am takin a little road trip to Oshawa first thing in the morning, have to sort out my passport in Whitby Ontario (just a little further then Oshawa) so, on my way back, I am stopping in at my uncles music store and tryin to strike up a deal. Curtis
