  2. Im based in the uk as well and i would definately be interested in a few of them mainly a 12 16 and 20. if you need anyone to test other radius's out let me know.
  3. Hi Ive recently bought a load of flamed maple from canada and ive a few sets surplus to requirements. theyre on ebay at the moment. (i have some more to list) ive wiped them down with some water thats all Here are the links http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?Vie...em=280285485716 http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?Vie...em=280285486561 http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?Vie...em=280285487156 Cheers Dickie
  4. i worked at fylde guitars for quite a while and the finish was allways sanded with compressed air palm sanders. if you want to see if it affects the finish or not look ob the fylde website. like glass every time. Dickie
  5. it was just wierd as im used to making right handed guitars and evrything was back to front i had to check check and tripple check every time i did something lol. heres one just for the sake of it.
  6. Yeah there was a number of times i had to take a step back and get the plans out just to make sure. everything allways looked wrong
  7. ok ive been building guitars for 4 or 5 years now as well as spending 3 years at fylde guitars, but this is the first left handed guitar ive done and man was it confusing. (the pictures were taken by the customer not me so excuse the backgrounds) 27 jumbo frets on a rosewood fretboard with a mop teardrop at the 12th fret (it needs a clean). Quilt maple top with a 5 piece (flamed maple wenge oak wenge flamed maple) neck The headstock has been scarfed to add strength to the vunerable bits and the body is 1 inch thick mahogany to keep it light as the customer is quite petit. The covers are rosewood and the hardware is gotoh and schaller. there are some rosewood pickup rings in the works but im in the process of moving workshop atm so they are on the waiting list. lemmi know what you think. http://i57.photobucket.com/albums/g234/bla...1/guitar012.jpg http://i57.photobucket.com/albums/g234/bla...01/untitled.jpg http://i57.photobucket.com/albums/g234/bla...1/guitar008.jpg http://i57.photobucket.com/albums/g234/bla...1/guitar007.jpg http://i57.photobucket.com/albums/g234/bla...1/guitar006.jpg http://i57.photobucket.com/albums/g234/bla...1/guitar002.jpg http://i57.photobucket.com/albums/g234/bla...1/guitar003.jpg http://i57.photobucket.com/albums/g234/bla...1/guitar001.jpg Dickie
  8. it will be a 16" radius all rgs are 16" radius and the edge 3 is only for the higher end korean guitars. the 2 edge 3 trems ive used were both 16" the jem and universe are the only ones to my knowledge (appart from possibly the 8 string) that have an 18 or 20" radius. hope this helps Dickie
  9. just wondering did you use the usual carve method of an angle grinder or did you use another method?
  10. £17.50 PER SET TWO PRONG FIXING 3X3 MACHINEHEADS Looks good, but I'm lookig for 6-in-line, 2 Prong. keep scrolling down there are some more further down The Fender Ones for £56.00? Too Costly. The "Fender® engraved Schaller® inline chrome string tuners" are a bit too Stocky. Other Sellers than Axesrus? they sell 6in a line for 20 quid ish ive bought 2 sets from them
  11. £17.50 PER SET TWO PRONG FIXING 3X3 MACHINEHEADS Looks good, but I'm lookig for 6-in-line, 2 Prong. keep scrolling down there are some more further down
  12. If you do find anywhere letme know ive been looking for somewhere for ages. just doesnt seem to be an option to buy small scale amounts of templates they all want you to buy three million or something (im exadurating) good luck anyhow

  14. il post it when its a bit further along the guy keep schanging his mind ive allready had to re scarf the neck and change the fretboard. Dont you jsut hate musicians sometimes lol
  15. lol no problem that maple that i got for the explorer is looking really nice . its being stained black so you cant even see the colour diference down the middle
  16. Dam you wez it was all nice and then you open your mouth and we get p****d on all day. sods law. build is looking great btw. Dickie
  17. Ive taken 4 or 5 ibanez fretboards off with the tutorial on the pg homepage. ive found the ibanez boards come off faster than other makes i usually get one free within about half an hour. i use a thin knife to start it with then a wallpaper scraper thats been sanded and polished to about 1500. comes off really easy.
  18. the builds looking great. thanks for the pointer on where to scource it. just looking for something a bit unusual to use.
  19. does anyone know of a supplier of the flamed blackwood in the uk ?
  20. It may just be me but the tail stop looks a little close to the saddles to me. could be wrong tho looks like you need to angle the neck as well (someone else pointed that out) hope this helps
  21. yeah dam right followed the progress on youtube would really like to see more info on this build Cheers
  22. hi has anyone used rustins plastic coating on a fretboard? is it comparable to standard laquer for protecting maple etc? ive used it before on bidies and necks. Thanks
