  1. Starting bid price dropped to $500, Buy it now dropped to $950. ~Russ
  2. Hey guys. Earlier this year I got in touch with Helmuth Lemme, author of "Electric Guitar: Sound Secrets and Technology," and had him build me one of his Pickup Analyzers. My intention was to start winding pickups. Well, my focus has shifted a bit, and I never got around to using the Pickup Analyzer. These are rather hard to come by as Helmuth will only build a few a year and he tends to be rather busy, so if this is something you've been drooling over, now's as good a time as any to pick one up. I'm also including a nearly new copy of Helmuth's book along with about $150 worth of various bobb
  3. Hey guys. If any of you were itnerested in these but weren't familiar with kickstarter, the project was successfully funded a few weeks back and since then all orders have been filled. I still have a ton of inventory and put up a new site to sell them through. Check out closetguitarhanger.com if you want to pick one up. ~russ
  4. Hey guys. Great news, I decided to reevaluate this kickstarter project and try it again from a different angle. The project got fully funded in only 3 days and it will stay up for another 27 days. If you're interested in checking it out or were thinking about picking one of these up, you can check it out here: http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1488481841/the-new-closet-guitar-hanger I'm pretty excited about this. I thought it would do better this time around, but I didn't expect quite this result! Thanks for looking. ~russ
  5. I've hung up 3 guitars in a row with about 1" between each and there was no serious concern of them touching as they were removed. The clothing between instruments is a fantastic idea though, very simple and the clothes are there already! Thanks, it's appears that the kickstarter site won't feature projects until they've gotten a decent following on their own. I'm hoping I can get a buzz going in the next few days so that kickstarter will give it a bit more publicity. It's only got 27 days left and if the target isn't reached, they won't be produced. So if you really want one (or more!), y
  6. Thanks mike! I'm hoping to get a house where I can have a new shop in the next year or so. In the mean time, I'm warming myself up with some projects to fund a few builds. If this project succeeds, you may see some hardware projects next! ~russ
  7. Hey guys. It's been a long time since I've been on here. I won GOTM once or twice and submitted a few tutorials to the site years back when I was involved. I had to get out of building when my house got robbed and all of my instruments got stolen. I sold the house to move into a safer apartment while finishing school. Anyhow, I've had the itch to get back into design (related to guitars at least) recently. I'm trying to launch a new project on kickstarter.com here: http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1488481841/the-closet-guitar-hanger It's a new way to hang your guitar: in the closet
  8. That's doubtful. I do not build guitars for anyone but myself anymore, and it's been that way for more than a year. Only my closest friends know I build guitars...I don't make it a point to let everyone know. My house was broken into about 3 months prior and a lap top was stolen. This time a playstation was stolen along with the guitars. I suspect it was the same people both times since the police never caught them the first time. I seriously doubt it was anyone who knew me. My neighborhood has gone down the toilet in recent years. About half a mile away is an apartment complex littered wi
  9. Hey guys, on friday afternoon my house was broken into and robbed. Among other things, 3 guitars that I built were stolen. In total the guitars represent around $7500 in materials and nearly 500 hours of labor. They were important to me because of all the guitars I've built, these three represented the first guitar I built, the first acoustic I built, and what I considered to be the best electric I've built. If you see any of these for sale online or just pictures posted anywhere, please notify me immediately. I'm located in Baton Rouge, Louisiana. My phone number is 919-600-0405 and my ema
  10. Jehle, check out mfgquote.com. You can post up some dimensioned drawings of the parts you need, list the specs, etc, and manufacturers will bid on it. I use it regularly to find new suppliers for the company I design car parts for. I've gotten many good deals through that site, and I've also built up quite a catalogue of preferred suppliers using them. . If it really is simply laser cutting that you need done, it should not be very expensive at all. $500 worth of laser cut parts would comprise either very expensive materials, very elaborate cuts, or a really high quantity. peace, russ
  11. If you thought Gibson was grasping at straws when they sued PRS, then you'll get a laugh out of this. Gibson goes after Guitar Hero peace, russ
