  1. I only just scrolled through to look at the pics, but damn. Awesome.
  2. I do something similar to this when I'm gluing fingerboards. I use a long slab or marble, only when I do it the fingerboard is on the bottom, and I use every clamp I can fit on there
  3. Hah! I think you may be right. What can I say, I'm a Jazzmaster fan.
  4. This seems pretty cool to me, but I do wish it looked better. Either way, if they ever make one I can use in a Moog Guitar, I'll buy it in a heartbeat.
  5. Thanks again for the additional compliments everyone! Here's a quick pic of the output jack plate that I made for it.
  6. At the encouragement of a few forum members, here is my first ever entry for GOTM. I guess I'll lay out the specs, as that seems to be the thing to do.

  7. Oh, and I'll take a few more pics soon. I forgot to show off my custom jack plate!
  8. Alright, you guys talked me in to it. I'll just throw in for it now, I got nothing to lose.
  9. Thanks for the compliments everyone! The body is somewhere around 1.75" thick. The bevel makes it look thin. Can I do that? Sorry for my daftness, but I've never put in for GOTM, and I don't really follow it too much, or know how it works. Plus, wasn't there a thread recently about people entering for GOTM and not posting build threads? I don't wanna be one of those guys. I want to a do a right proper build thread here someday. I just didn't hardly take any pictures of this one while I was building it.
  10. I've been on this forum for a few years now, and I don't post very much. I just like to be helpful where I can, and I don't have time to be too active on all of the forums that I like to go to. But I really like this place, and a lot of the people here. Yet, so far I haven't ever made a new thread to show some of my work. I would have liked to make a proper build thread, but on this particular guitar I didn't take very many in progress shots. But this section is for in progress and finished work, so I guess this is more like a finished thread. Even though this guitar still needs some w
  11. I haven't made a twelve string, but I did make a ten string. Well not exactly, I just modified a Japanese Fender Jaguar in to a ten string. But still, unison strings and a 24" scale. I didn't notice any issues with strings hitting each other, but this guy wanted really heavy strings on it. The tension on that little neck was insane and I felt sorry for it.
  12. There's no reason why you couldn't do a heel-adjust truss rod on a pitched headstock neck. Probably the reason why it's not often done is because most guitarists prefer a headstock-adjust truss rod, no matter whether the headstock is pitched or straight. So when you do get to that somewhat more limited market of people who prefer a heel-adjust, they're almost always vintage Fender guys and vintage Fenders, of course, have straight headstocks. Additionally, with a heel-adjust truss rod, you have to make sure that there is some kind of access to it, which is why you won't find it on set-neck
  13. Fascinating test, I'll be sure to watch where it goes as well.
