  1. thanks guys. Haha, yes its a pretty bench. I told myself I'd just get it done but I guess I just like pretty things, and I had some oak and its a slippery slope from there!
  2. Hello, Been a while since I've posted. I've been behind the scenes watching all the projects. Always great info. We moved and I have a lot more space now to invest in a more ergonomic setup. I designed a workbench on how I like to build guitars and thought I'd share it since I've spent about the same amount of time on it, lol. Its a small work surface with interchangeable surfaces on all dimensions so you can alter the top to be what you want. I really just intended for one originally but it just worked out this way. It's also adjustable height from about 35
  3. If I'm going to build guitars I really rather make something original. I think Andy hit the nail on the head. The encore is a style upgrade on a familiar body style. Even if people want something unique It seems they are generally very leery of going on that edge. They just have a hard time envisioning what that would be. Thanks for the opinions guys.
  4. I have someone wanting something unique. They liked the Encore but wanted a single cut or the even possibly the Pennant. I played around with the designs a little to get some possible contenders. I have a color scheme on the Pennant I really want to do. What you guys think? Encore is the "roundish" one and Pennant is the "pointy" one inspired by a flag. Nothing unique for the encore headstock yet.
  5. I think I remember seeing a thread about being careful not to make ziricote too dark. I cant seem to remember where that post is. Does anyone have any input on that? Thanks guys
  6. I think I'm going to stick with the pau ferro this time through. I want to do something with purpleheart or bloodwood though.
  7. Ah I really like that idea. I think that captures their theme really well. Man, I'm pretty sure ive sanded stone softer than ziricote. I feel like I'm sanding concrete.
  8. So its been a while. Moving, job, and everything else but I've got a new workshop and ready to continue my new instrument here. I've been doing some homework and have decided on a few changes and goals. I'm going to be using 2 klein mini-humbuckers. I have the timber for two options I'm excited about. a Pau Ferro combination or a purpleheart combination. What you guys think? Good to be back!
  9. Lol, Death by chocolate. Would be a good name. I'll have to try the ziricote fretboard. Never thought about that
  10. So I've figured out the wiring theme I'm going for. It will have 4 knobs, two tones and two volumes. The tones will actually have dual concentric pots one for treble and bass. There will be a master volume and one for just the neck and bridge. It will have a few other items but here's the basic positions. Still hunting for the right pickups. Oh and I'm about ready for the CAD part. I think my concept is getting closer. Not sure If I have enough meat to make the carve I want. May just do flat top for once. Added an inlay to fit the body at the headstock. The small loop there w
