  1. I saw http://www.customluthier.com/ Looked good. Alas works no more.
  2. Have any of you got a U100 fretboard (Ebony, 10" r?) made by a custom fretboard maker /inlay artist? Or experience of a competent custom FB/inlay maker that could do complex inlays good. Looking for someone pro that can make a FB with the elliptic pearloid inlays proper as of the U100. http://medias.audiofanzine.com/images/normal/aria-guitars-u100-585830.jpg
  3. If anyone has a Cirrus - Also looking for the knob placement on a 6-string... A: C-C low-eq to hi-eq B: C-C vol to mix C: C-C vol to low-eq D: C-C vol to mid-eq E: C-C mix to mid-eq F: C-C lo-eq to mid-eq G: C-C mid-eq to hi-eq H: C-C low-eq to mix I: C-Vol to edge of 24th fret ...and back cavities dimensions: http://www.talkbass.com/forum/attachment.php?attachmentid=231770&d=1318531451
  4. New Topic: http://projectguitar.ibforums.com/index.php?showtopic=45576 It's Very Old so humidity won't affect it either way on this issue. Maybe I'll try the superglue.
  5. I have some frets on a old Brand-name Classic neck that is protruding, bending up perpendicular to the fretboard surface, on the sides of the FB - flat in middle. You can press the fret-ends down by hand, about 0.5-1 mm, but as soon as you let go they rise again. The guitar is really Old, so humidity has no short time passing affect on this, either way. More like Metal fatigue, plastically getting back to it's original shape. I was thinking of applying some wood glue at the sides while pressing down for setting, but then you have to make sure that the (new) Fretboard-flat position of t
  6. I have some frets on a Classic neck that is protruding, bending up, on the sides of the FB - flat in middle. You can press the fret-ends down by hand but as soon as you let go they rise again. I was thinking of applying some wood glue at the sides while pressing down for setting, but then you have to make sure that the (new) Fretboard-flat position of the fret won't be out of line and causing fretbuzz and whatever. Has Anyone done it?
  7. Looking for a r 2.5mm Profiling Router Bit for making the radius on the JEM body edges. http://static.keebali.com/jemsite.com/jem/origin/jem777_blueprint.jpg Where can you get them?
  8. Anyone know from what show this was recorded? Yngwie Malmsteen Plays Flight of the Bumblebee http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=70APtQuc31E Seems noone knows on Youtube. Is the whole concert recording available somewhere? (right forum?)
  9. Get som Flat Fret press pieces [stewmac] and press where obvious. Place it over 3-4 frets and where rocking, press. More accurate work than that needs sufficient equipment... Or do you mean on the SIDE of the FB?
  10. Building from pictures, ain't got no access to a Cirrus.
  11. I'm getting it as close as possible to the Cirrus. Peavey won't reveal the extent or measurements of the "Graphite reinforcements". http://www.peavey.com/products/browse.cfm/...206%20Maple.cfm It's Walnut - WN/maple/walnut/maple/WN - neck. See Images on any 6-str Cirrus. 5: 6:
  12. How much Carbon rods, Graphite rods, should be needed for this neck? 2 Gr rods, 1 on each side of the 2-way TR x what length? and x what av. area, circular, rectangular or square?
  13. The 6100 available are 18% nickel/silver hard alloy. Equal to the Allparts?
  14. There are some builders who prefers Stewmacs Fretwire to Dunlop's (6100 etc). They claim it's a harder, more durable fretwire. But why does Fender and Ibanez have Dunlop as standard fretwire on their originals? Sound? A subjective taste and not a "Better" model answer maybe.
