  1. I used to live in Vancouver and one day found myself driving next to Gene and Devin.......they were bombing around in what looked like a newish Toyota Echo or Tercel. For anyone that's not familiar with the Echo it's pretty much one of the smallest cars you can buy in North America. And for anyone that doesn't know Gene is like 6-4 and 300+ lbs. It was the most hilarious metal siting of my life.
  2. Beauty, this should suit me just fine. Thanks Wes......and Swedish for the offer.
  3. I did manage to find some MK II plans for purchase online but they are paper plans only and while I could buy these and trace them out in the computer the whole point of buying the plans is to skip this process. Any links to sources of .pdf plan sellers?
  4. Swedish, I do have the rough body shape that I traced out from a dead on shot that I just grabbed online. Things like neck pocket and actual body size measurements are what I'm after. Based on a few builds I've seen there are plans floating around somewhere but if I can't track any down I'd certainly be grateful if you took a few minutes to bang something out. I'll keep you posted.
  5. I think you're right about it being the same as the M. Perhaps not a bad idea to start with the flat top anyway being my first build.
  6. If I were to supersaturate two pieces of 1/16 or 3/32 thick wood with dye to use as laminate highlights in a guitar body do I risk having the dyes leech into the neighboring unfinished woods during the build process or as long as I let them cure properly will the color hold fast? What I'm envisioning is a dark finish oil or stain back and top to show the grain. Top would be 3/16 to a 1/4 thick with the two highlight laminates directly below that creating pink and teal highlight lines in the body. I was also thinking I could carry the laminate colors into the neck to tie the entire guitar to
  7. Anybody know where I can locate plans for a Horizon style body?
  8. Not to highjack the thread but I happen to be part owner of sign shop that has an Edge. It looks like you've already resolved your headstock issue but if the problem arises for anyone else I might be able to help.
  9. Are you able to temporarily mark the nut to make sure you don't file too low or it it just back and forth with the straight edge until you're at the height you want?
  10. Just to clarify you're measuring the thickness of the business card at the first fret while fretting between 2nd and 3rd frets as in the posted tutorial?
  11. Hey guys, Sorry if this has already been addressed but I tried searching the forums and the results were either nothing or dozens and dozens of threads that may or may not have had this question answered somewhere in the haystack of other info. I'm currently using the guitar setup tutorials posted on the forums here to fine tune a guitar that my father in law had made by one of his buddies for my son. It had some serious fret buzz on the 1st and 2nd frets across all strings when it arrived but this has since been resolved by taking the concave out of the neck and getting the neck relief
  12. Funny you should be the first to comment. I just finished reading through your entire build on the walnut guitar you built because I was looking at building a walnut piece myself so I was searching through all the walnut threads....beautiful work.
