  1. I'm still not sure about the headstock, but looks A LOT better then i thought it would. The color is fun, i love those retro 50's colors.
  2. I really appreciate that offer, but i don't think it's a good idea. It would be quite costly to send something, from the US to germany, and it may be quite a lot of trouble to import/export small amounts of exotic wood. I will have to ask around more in the area once the temperatures get a bit more humane again. But it quite surprised me how afraid professionals can be about amateurs, most i've contacted didn't even answer me, and it's not like i asked to get something for free. Coming here is always so much nicer than to deal with people in the region that make their money with that.
  3. I actually didn't since i thought this would diminish the sound. Any experience? Can i still put a french polish on there if i do, and how do i keep it from dripping into the body? Sorry, for all the questions, i've actually never considered this so far. The soundhole is extremely small, putting something on the inside to keep it from running into the soundbox could be quite difficult, or at least i can't fit my hand in there.
  4. No thoughts on this? :/ Well i took 2 pictures just now if that may help. One of the cracks and the material. Yes the back isn't yet done with sanding i thought i have to do it anyway when i inlay wood to fix the crack, so i decided to do that then.
  5. The build-in mic is no good though, a adapter cable can be bought from peterson though, the piezo clip-on pup should then also work with it i guess. Should a overall 40$ or something like that.
  6. Why no peterson? Yes they are expansive, but i'm convinced that they are worth it. But i also got a korg ca 30 and it's mostly ok for what it costs, don't know how good or bad the ca 1 is. Unlike workingman's korg mine is off 2hz though, can be adjusted, but it worries me a bit. Peterson also got a clip-pickup which actually comes with the stroboflip, but it can be bought separately, apparently it even can be used with every chromatic tuner. So if you want that feature without buying a tuner that's not very versatile, then maybe the peterson is the way to got http://www.long-mcqua
  7. I've just received the wood i intended to use to fix the cracks on my parlor guitar: http://projectguitar.ibforums.com/index.ph...=43373&st=0 For those that are interest in the detail, the rest can scroll down. It got 2 (roughly) 10 - 11cm long cracks in a mahogany back, pretty bad stuff from all i know. I intended to rout those and inlay sticks of new wood in there. So i've ordered a 12cm turning blank for a knife. Problem: They all looked a lot lighter in the picture and where all straight grained in the picture, it said "mahogany" but it was just a "stand in" for all kinds
  8. Summer sucks, you need something to remind yourself of winter. Like the green though. Green is mostly a love or hate thing though, have to be careful with that color. I miss you winter please come back.
  9. Haven't seen it mentioned so far so i thought i ask: How many frets? I know joe usually used 22 but recently started to use 24, and also released a signature with 24 frets. I love the look of that quilt on that maple. :3 Not sure though how gold will fit green, i would have chosen black hardware, but let's see how it turns out, and it can be changed anyway.
  10. I also really like the idea with the frames, looks really awesome! Great way to integrate the instruments into a area like this while still maintaining a comfortable and cosy atmosphere. But please be careful when taking those off the wall, not that you (or the wife) slips and drops one of those on the fish tank.
  11. Sorry guys, long time no see. My nerves are gone and i like to recommend to everyone who is reading this: Don't try milling your own lumber! I have no nerves left at this point and will need some time to recover. Just let's not mention that ebony ever again, since i've also sort of wasted a lot of my money which i would have really needed. Well i have the rough cut pieces and in some days from now i will start making the fretboard and bridge. I made a little cardboard temp, and if someone got any recommendations on the design, please tell me now. BTW: Does anyone have a good prod
  12. Is there a good article about that somewhere? :/ Poor guitars
  13. That lappy still is my fav but i have to say, the tele is starting to look quite good aswell.
