  1. Hi thanks for the real nice comments .This guitar will be no 10 . I started building guitars back in 1997 . I was influenced by Brian May who built his own so from that first guitar built for my self it became an addiction of some sort . Most guitar builders would of built close to 100 guitars in that time . Hopefully i will get some sort of interest in this style of guitar , its the first of my own design.
  2. Thankyou for your kind comments the finish i am using is a nitro type laquer that dosent crack or craze after a few years. Its called excellac 100 made buy a company called sherwoods paints. All i did was wipe the neck down with prepsol which a grease and wax remover. Ps you allso have made some great looking guitars as well keep up the excellent work .
  3. Hi the neck has Had about 8 coats of clear on it . The cocobolo is such a hard timber that it dosent soak that much laquer up at all .
  4. The round holes you see are magnets to hold in the back control cover that is also made of a matching peice of maple.

  8. Hi everyone this may sound like a stupid question but how do i go about entering my guitar in gotm comptetion. thanks www.diquattroguitars.com
  9. Hi i love this guitar your building i was wondering how did you manage to rout out the recurve on the body with out loosing control or keeping it so nice and consistant . I would like to try the methode my self . Any advice would be a great help. thankyou.
  10. Do you have any inside shots of the PRS-style hollowbody? That one is really nice looking. Just curious how the body is designed and what you hollowed out on it. Is it a semi-hollow or fully-hollow design? Nice job on it either way. -Cheers Hi Dave have a look at my site under currant projects and you will see pics of the inside of the guitar. Also have a look at Edromanguitars.com and look at the section were they cut the top off a hollow body prs .You will see good photos there.
  11. When i built my Hollow body guitar i carved the top and back inside and out and i was a little worried about feed back at high volumes . So what i did was i made the neck with a extra long deep set tennon that goes all the way underneath the bridge pickup . I also put a solid sound post in that links the top plate to the bottom plate the core of the body is made of a two peices of brazillian mahogany . www.diquattroguitars.com Instead of routing out the body to make it hollow i cut each half with the bandsaw before glueing the two together . That saved me a lot of dirty work

  13. HI Dave Check out my website www.diquattroguitars.com and have a look at the hollow body i finished in March . If you have any Questions i will be happy to help you out.
  14. My vote goes to hoogle bug i have never seen such a carve like that brilliant peice of work .
  15. Thankyou for your help everyone it is much appreciated , Only one question snowgtr what type of glue is bondo , i have never heard of it before what is it close to. The timber im talking about i bought from ebay ,the seller said that it is for guitar building ,and we did have a very hot summer this year . When i bought the maple i had it stored in the house and now its in the work shop . So that i think has had alot to do with it . Bondo is auto body filler. How severly cupped is the wood? (say you put a straight edge across it, how far off would it be in inches or millimeters?) Acro
