  1. Spectacular guitar, outstanding work. Bravo
  2. What can I say? Stunning work! True mastery on display Scott! Congrats
  3. Decided on a ‘double binding’ of aluminium and walnut. So far so good. I got the metal from a friends old caravan Hard to make out the fact it’s metal from the photo, but when it’s all radiused and polished up it should look pretty nice
  4. Not a bad weight either, 4.5 lbs before any routing. Pretty good considering it’s 37 mm thick.
  5. So spent ages yesterday on the guitar refining minutiae such we getting the area where the nut goes nice and snug, nothing worthy of photos. I have however decided on a nice fret inlay, which I will be doing with the same aluminium as what’s on the headstock cap. It’s a Phoenix...that mythological bird. I think it looks damn cool
  6. Awesome bass in the current GOTM comp I’m toying with the idea of putting an aluminium inlay on the fretboard to match with the headstock cap theme. Do you think there would be any drawbacks? I’m thinking of when it comes to me putting the 12 inch radius in it, would the metal get in the way too much and inhibit the sanding? Also I’ve heard it might scratch too easily?
  7. So a friend of mine, noticing a couple of my builds has decided to buy a bespoke guitar off me . He doesn’t have hugely exacting requirements, he told me he likes the feel of both his Epiphone Les Paul and his Vantage Strat, and that he loves the look of the PRS guitars. I therefore figured why not combine elements of all of these guitars, Fender scale length of 25.5, Gibson/Epiphone fretboard radius of 12 and PRS shape....so that’s exactly what I am doing. Got some nice woods for this build, Limba neck, English Sycamore body, Stripey Ebony fretboard and Poplar Burl top. At the moment t
  8. Congratulations Andy! A gorgeous guitar for sure! I really must get some Yew some time
  9. What a gorgeous selection of woods! Will be watching this one for sure
  10. As you can enter again with the same guitar, I may as well So I’ve been building a headless recently and now it is complete. It’s neck through design...was so close to a one piece in terms of the thickness of the Wenge blank! Oh well. This gradually evolved in to a Strandberg inspired build. One unusual is the scale length of 23.4 and the deliberate lack of a fretboard radius. Combined with the jumbo frets and skinny neck (almost Ibanez Wizard profile) its ended up quite an interesting guitar. First time using Glu boost as a finish, I like it! Although the poplar burl top was very ‘
  11. Congratulations Mike! You always enter something beautiful and this one was no exception. Definitely well deserved
