  1. After finishing the 2/3 scale guitar build for my daughters I took a little time off to work on other projects. Household carpentry, building a combat robot, etc. But for the past few years I've been wanting to build an acoustic instrument, as that's mostly what I play these days. I play primarily mandolin, and I have several of those as well as a guitar bodied octave mandolin. So I thought, why not fill in the gap and build a mandola! I love the look of guitar bodied octave mandolins, which are becoming more popular. They're generally based on smaller bodied archtop jazz guitars. My octa
  2. Hello, I am new here so if I am posting in the wrong place etc , please tell me nicely ! I have just purchased a cort mini OP guitar 3/4 size, (not seen or collected yet) . I fancy adding a pickup and would appreciate some advice if possible. I have seen two on e-bay. One a fishman that has a piezo and microphone , and another whos name escapes me at the moment is a lot larger . What I am asking is , has anyone any experience with any of these cheaper pickups, and what would they recommend. I raelise the site is about building your own guitar, but that is a question for another section, I b
  3. Would it be possible to do so, if I stripper all the nitro off of it? I have no idea what kind of wood it's made from, since the guitar is like 20 something years old, and I'd rather not try it before knowing if it is possible, beacuse I really don't want to ruin it
  4. tl;dr version; Just bought this guitar, humming issues, no experience in electronics, please help! Hello everyone...it´s been quite a long time since I last visited. I hope you guys are doing well. I just got myself a beautiful, previously owned Godin A6 Ultra, just got it today in the mail! As you can see, it was modded. I bought it on a site which I believe is owned by ebay. I´ve purchased many things there, and never had an issue. Certainly, I hope that is the case this time as well, but I would appreciate guidance. I have zero experience with electronics. Ok, so the guitar w
  5. Hi friends. I've sanded the damaged resin finish from the top of my nylon guitar. Ended up overdoing it, and the more I tried to mitigate the harm done, the worse it got. These ugly blots emerged. I'm now looking for ideas of what to do to make it nice again. Is there some kind of sealer or something that would retain the wood but get rid of the blots? Or maybe would it be better to glue a layer of veneer and then refinish it? What would you do:? It's an old and cheap guitar, but it is surprisingly good and stood the test of time bravely, Thanks in advance!
  6. Hi again! Apart from the single-cut bass I've just posted, the other project on the go - albeit a longer-term project - is a dreadnought acoustic 6 string. It is due as a surprise present for our old-guys-band's vocalist who has a special birthday in July next year. The spec is: Lacewood (London Plane Tree, specifically) back and sides European spruce top Mahogany / Walnut / Mahogany neck Ebony fretboard 25.5" scale Built-in pickup(s) and pre-amp, make to be confirmed So far, I've: built a simple plywood mould thicknessed and j
  7. This is a project which will have a reasonably lengthy build-up time, so this thread exists purely to gather information, consolidate the design and work methodologies. A little background. I have never built an acoustic or archtop previously to this, so much of this particular thread will consist of my research and references to information online or from books, etc. The Gibson EB-750 and its sister the EB-650 were extremely rare (less than 100) basses built upon the designs of the Gibson ES range. The EB-750 was (as far as I am aware) the same underlying design as ES-175 but with a bass n
  8. I allready made a topic where I asked some questions on how to make an electric, but what came to my mind in the meanwhile is that I'd actually like an acoustic! So could you please tell me, what are the differences (in building them) which is generally cheaper, and which is harder/easier to build?
