  1. +1 That's the guitar of the year right there for me!
  2. Very nice guitars, been a fan for a while since the Kemp days, nice to see you here and on UKGB. pan kara, tru-oil is available in europe, at least in the UK it is, search for Birchwood Casey Tru-Oil
  3. As a massive gamer, who has devoted hundreds and hundreds of hours to the Fallout franchise, I am enthralled by this project!
  4. That's a GOTM right there if ever I saw one!
  5. Sorry, I was only messing around. In all seriousness when are we gonna get an update on your PGM build? I was enjoying following that.
  6. Bob, how I've missed you and your crazy ideas! We can add this one to spraying WD40 on unfinished wood and the fiberglass neck mould, template, sanding block thingy!
  7. Lookin really nice now Lee, love the colour, makes a huge difference.
  8. I think the one sound hole on the upper bout is a good idea, like in design 2, but perhaps with a couple more smaller holes added if you get my meaning
  9. I'd have to agree with demonx and say Daemoness Guitars, Dylan has a fantastic way of making each guitar he builds very personal, beyond the normal customer choosing the woods/specs/design aspects of custom guitars. And the inlays he does...
  10. I used tung oil on the jarrah, maybe 6-8 coats. Very dense wood. Given how hard jarrah is I'm not sure it would translate to a warmer tone. I would imagine your choice of body timber and pickups would have more of an impact. I've used Jatoba for several necks, though never a fretboard. It has a similar look as Jarrah, and is extremely hard and dense as well. It has a reputation for adding midtone warmth, and my guitars with jatoba necks certain have plenty of that. How much the Jatoba contibuted to that will always be debatable....but it's food for thought. SR Thanks guys, I ha
  11. I've also been meaning to ask what the jarrah is like as a fretboard and what you used to oil it? I'm thinking of using it on my first full build, which is mainly maple and alder, in the hope that it might add a bit more warmth to the tone than an ebony or maple fretboard? All the guitars I own have rosewood fretboards so I'm trying not to use it on this one. Thanks
  12. Another tough one, some very different guitars this month. Had to go for the Busy-B myself due to the original body shape that is done so well and I am usually a big traditionalist.
