  1. That is correct. My aim is basically cosmetic in doing that. I really like the accent laminate thing (now I know the term so thanks for that as well.).
  2. Hi everyone, I have a question. I am starting a new project involving a fender style neck (straight headstock and not angled). I'd like to add these decorations usually added on scarf joints. Has anyone tried these on a straight neck? How will it fare in terms of strength? Thanks
  3. Thanks Aperez. Have you had a chance to try them? Are they a match of the original?
  4. Thanks, I'm looking for a Gibson flying V guitar templates.
  5. Hi, I am searching for an accurate guitar template provider. I've tried Ronnie from guitarbuildingtemplates.com and I wasn't really happy with what I bought (it's not 100% accurate - as was stated in the terms of service - nit's not something he hides and i wasn't smart enough to go over them in the first place) the neck pocket and the neck did not match (apparently on purpose). So, I am looking for a provider of foolproof templates (the kind that I can just cut with and not make any adjustments) I would appreciate if anyone can direct me to one. Thanks !
  6. Thanks! How is it texture-wise? how does it feel while you play ? How durable is it?
  7. Hi guys, Does anyone know how Mayones did this finish ?
  8. Hi, What did you use for a filler within the inlayed cavity?
  9. Thanks all ! you made this an easy choice
  10. Thanks guys I'm from Israel which means that Grizzly are costly as muc as Makita (due to the shipping costs VAT and customs fees). My Options are DeWalt which is 2 times more expnsive, Makita and Bosch... I'd always prefer to avoid German products (Historical reasons mostly)... So it leaves me with Makita
  11. Hi all, I am an amateur builder. As such I mainly work at home and don't have much space. So until now I avoided buying a big saw and went to a woodworker when I needed sawing or plaining services. But now I want to buy a saw. which Brings me to my question: I am having trouble to decide between buying a bandsaw - probably this one: http://www.amital-ltd.co.il/ProductsImages/W128655.jpg or buying a table saw - probably this one: http://img.zap.co.il/pics/4/8/9/3/34983984c.gif What I need from the saw is straight and accurate cuts for laminating necks and bodies (also the bandsaw
  12. Thanks It's really easy to make... I used a miterbox and a fretting saw to cut the pieces so it's dead accurate and used a metal cover to drill the holes is 5 times easier than making the rings and much more fun since you could play with the combinations...
  13. I decided to make wood pickup covers ... I got the inspiration from Pukko's amazing guitar. So I took a plate of bloodwood and cut two pieces from it: Then I used a metal pickup cover to position the holes and drill them: The I binded the plates with flame maple bindings and applied a coat of tru oil:
  14. I'm delaying the soundhole routing... I'm still unsure about the shape... I tought about routing two f-holes but then I thought that this is too common and I want to be a bit more outstanding... I'm in search of ideas... something similar to the Butteflies guitar that Tim Robbins did... But I want another theme... I tought about something like this but I'm not sure about it: Any suggestions?
