  1. LOL, ! I honestly, didn't even notice those, damn I need to change my vote now, that feature alone should ensure it's victory. That is a wicked build all in all, I think the headstock is cool, ferrules definately give it a different look from tuners and the wooden pickup cover is super clean. Good stuff!
  2. Yeah, that was an extremely tough vote for me as well! They were all amazing. In the end I had to go with the V, which is amazing as I despise V's and always have. But that V is nice I like how it all flows together from the color to inlays to pup rings. It just works for me. The Priest Tribute is also very nice, I like everything about it especially the inlays and pinstripe. The mythical dream guitar is beyond me, I could never manage something as impressive as that, the carving is amazing, and the wooden pup cover is a great look. Tims guitar is beautiful also, I can never get enough
  3. Seriously some good pointers there! Benedryl can save your life and should be in everyones house. Recently I was real sick in the hospital and they had to give me some pain meds and to increase the effectiveness I guess they added some form of anti-anxiety med in the shot and the anxiety med immediately started having bad side effects. It got really bad because the pain med and allergic reaction combo made it so I couldn't speak or move, only just barely. After 30 minutes or more of laying watching people go in and out I was finally able to convey that I was having problems. Immediately th
  4. My vote went ot jazzclub! Not my style of guitar at all but I enjoyed the design and carve it had along with the finish. It's far from ordinary, and thats something I really like, different wood, different headstock carve and so on. Good stuff. The tele looks good but isn't too far off what Bigd does all the time, the finish color was great but I couldn't vote strictly for a finish. The odd boy is awsome and would be my second choice and made a hard decision for me. I really think it turned out great and it's a great concept, I enjoyed it from the first post. And the custom, very cool,
  5. I was thinking about something for a bit, has there ever been a separete Gotm for bass? I figure there hasn't or it was short lived and it was because there is never enough basses. I think maybe if someone started it people might build a few more basses because they would have a good chance of winning if there was only one or two builds in it, and basically it might cause a big increase of people building basses. I know many people would like to be a winner in GOTM, either bass or guitar. Also if it didn't seem like there was enough still maybe give an ultimate title out for the winner of
  6. I'm all about The Crucible! I feel that there was more details put into it, with inlays, overall theme, great electronics setup, very nice carve with a unique "launch pad" for the controls which turned out far better than expected, along with many other features. There are so many details but none of them stick out poorly which in my eyes means that the theme and details worked out perfectly, it all flows together so well. But they are all great guitars, and I would be a proud owner of any of them, and I wish I was a proud owner of any of them! Nice stuff guys! LAter. Jason
  7. No kidding! That made me laugh so hard!
  8. Another Toxic Wood list Here is a site from the links page over at MIMF. It has what I was talking about. It is worth it to check this out and read through it all. No point in getting sick or worse, stay safe guys. Good luck and I'll talk to you guys later. Jason
  9. I'll look for the page I read this on and post it when I find it, but it was similar to the one posted. It said sensitizers like Fryovanni mentioned mostly will not cause any reactions the first time you are exposed, but the following times you are exposed you will possibly have a bad reaction. Here's what I found interersting it said if that wood is a sensitizer for you each additional time you are exposed the reaction will get worse. And here's the worst part, it will not go away, you will always have that severe reaction to that wood and it will always get worse each time you are exposed
  10. Don't feel unworthy. They had to start just like you and theirs might not have been that good. But yes their work is amazing. I think it's so cool to have a place with so many great guitar builders, where they can share and help others. This is truly a great place. Later. Jason
  11. Thats cool! It might just be the pic but I think I would like a blue led. But it's your guitar and so far it's great, I would keep doing what your doing. I see that you have a number of votes already. Nice! You did a nice job, especially for your first try, it doesn't look like your first, it looks like you've built quite a few and thats why I voted for it. I must say though, Perrys guitar is more my style, if I had to buy one. I liked all of the entries though. I also really liked Maidens. It really had a great color scheme and I liked the top a lot, oh and the black neck was cool t
  12. I agree, I have yet to see anyone do it this way besides that one, which I'm sure worked fine but it seems to me that if you routed two channels one on either side of the truss rod channel that it would be far more effective, as the point is not to stiffen the truss rod which is already made of steel, but to stiffen the neck. Spacing it out like that would probably work better if you were going to go that way, but again is not necessary. Is it going to be 2 parts hard maple and one part mahogandy, or what? Good Luck! Jason
  13. There has been a few people that had that question. There are also a few people that say that they are not needed and they are not going to use one, these peoplecause big debate because this is terrible advice and can cause new builders a lot of problems and wasted money! You need one is about all there is to say. The people that say they are not going to use one seem to never come back and and say that it worked, noone evers hears from them again! I don't know if they are embarrassed about it failing or they went crazy trying to make it work or what. They were invented to help the guit
