  1. All are marked down to $70+shipping http://shop.ebay.com/soundat11/m.html
  2. AX84 Hi-Octane tube amp head: Handwired by Chris Hurley, the founder of the AX84 project and he's no longer selling them. This is all Point-To-Point Wired. Controls are Volume-Treble-Mid-Bass-Gain 1-Gain 2. It has 2 Ei 12AX7 tubes in the preamp and the option of either 1 EL84 output tube (7 watts) or 1 6N1P output tube (1 watt). Tonewise, I'd put this amp as somewhere between a Vox and Marshall with the EL84. Very bright and chimey when clean, all the way up to pretty crunchy and aggressive when distorted. With the 6N1P tube, it becomes very warm and thick (very brown) sounding. You can tr

  4. Here we go: 4 body blanks to start with: http://shop.ebay.com/soundat11/m.html All of these are solid wood and thick: 13 3/4 x 21 x 1 7/8 Worldwide shipping
  5. Thanks Chris! I have 4 of these available if anyone is interested. All were cut from the same board so they look similar, although two of them are flashier than the one posted in the eBay listing: orange streaks! They are $90 apiece. Buy more than one and save $5 on each. Shipping costs are separate (I will ship outside of the US too). I'll post some detailed photos over the weekend. Will
  6. http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewI...em=140470011652 1 solid piece blank (2 available). They're 13 3/4" wide x 21" long x 1 7/8" thick. They are extremely stable, have no cracks, and are flat as can be.
  7. Clear sustaining tone, density, and good looks are it's Pluses. Negatives would be it's course, open-pored feel. Great choice on the purpleheart and limba, btw, both are great tonewoods that match well. You might consider Wenge for the fretboard. Think of it as a darker looking version of Zebrawood, but it's a little smoother and has more bass to it.
  8. I'm sorry to hear that, Mike. That's troubling to imagine not being able to work with wood without becoming ill. I get covered in Mahogany and Limba sawdust several times a week, for the past 9 months. No problems yet, but I do wear a respirator, goggles, and ear protection, plus I'm not allergic. You may need to stick to buying premade guitars or Warmoth ones :-(
  9. I feel qualified to give a response, as I've cut up approx 1,000 BF of Mahogany, Limba, Purpleheart, Ash, Walnut, and Maple (mainly the first 3) in the past 6 months for my online wood-selling business I don't have any allergies to begin with and with _constant_ exposure over the past 6 months (ie saw, plane, and sand a few times a week, store all cut blanks in my house in a spare bedroom, move them around to photograph, and ultimatly pack them for shipment, I've gotten nothing more than an occassional stuffy nose or sneeze. My roomate has had no problems from any of the dust in our house (
  10. Good points, Greg. Honestly, my current neck-thru guitar doesn't sustain "infinitely" (as I'd wish), just on par with a good set neck guitar. My main line of thinking is a few points. I figure that the more glue in my guitar, the more potential for robbing vibrations of the pieces of wood I'm joining. By that logic, a 1-piece solid maple guitar with it's maple fretboard, would be the ideal......of course, it'd weigh a TON and be ear-piercingly bright. Next, I figure if the neck and body are one literal piece of wood, that all vibrations will be transmitted clearly between the two. I'll be d
  11. I've got a crazy idea: a 2-piece guitar. I picked up a 1 3/4" thick, 6 1/2" wide, and 4' long peice of Mahogany at the local lumber store ($30). I'm considering getting an identical sized piece, joining them in the middle, and litterally cutting a guitar out of the entire board (one continuous piece, no seperate neck and body). Has this been done before? Do you think the neck (let alone the guitar) would be stable on something like this? Soundwise, would this be the uber-sustain, tone-monster I'm imagining or just heavy, dead guitar? I'd have to route and install my own trussrod and
