  1. Props to Hooglebug, who had a really classy guitar, and Jaden who had a sweet guitar. But my vote went to the chambered nylon string. The world needs more of these and this one looks pretty cool. The execution is not flawless, but I like the overall vibe. Oh and, Avengers, that scarf joint accent looks familiar huh?
  2. A few older guitars are now for sale. ebay auctions up. Stage Acoustic Amara Nova
  3. Yep sure looks that way. Why such a big cavity for the selector switch?
  4. +1 I also despise bending wood binding around a tight cutaway. Never fun. Other than that it's a fun all the way.
  5. Dave got my vote. Very classy, and his first build at that!
  6. Nice color. Any chance we can get a side angle shot so we can see the black limba and spalt together? Very nice as always.
  7. So what happened to you routing the pickups only after the finish is done? Has your stance on this changed? Thoughts?
  8. The first body shape for sure. That's an awesome piece of wood. BTW, are your toenails painted? Not judging... just asking.
  9. Slightly off topic, but you should try and reuse those pickup covers. You can't buy aged like that. (and maybe even pole pieces if it's possible to screw them out and put them in the new pickup? I have no idea, never seen it done)
  10. Sometimes simple is the way to go. Or, perhaps I'm just simple.
  11. You'd hope so, but why chance it? You never know how much it will move, and it's always better to be on the safe side... Again you'd hope so, but that's extra work, and I try to level frets as little as possible to keep as much height as possible. You'd just be saving yourself extra work/time/headaches if you waited. my .02
  12. I see what he is saying. And the answer is no, you need different screws. The screws that go through P-90s are wood screws and the humbucker screws are actually machine screws that thread into the metal plate of the pickup.
  13. Odds are after you carve the neck will move, even if just a little. Therefore making your frets unlevel. I always fret last. That makes sure your frets *stay* level after you do all the work to get them that way.
  14. Option 3 for the necks, and for the pickups I'd go HH on the top, and HSS on the bottom.
  15. Sorry, but no. The master volume control on amps is a volume placed right before the power tubes. When you turn it down the power tubes are no longer being pushed into overdrive and you only have preamp tube "distortion". The poweramp tube "overdrive" is where the creamy goodness comes from. Preamp distortion is always "harder" and not as smooth as poweramp distortion. But some people hate the sound of poweramp tubes being pushed, so you'll have to decide for yourself.
