  1. Now that's a hell of a title. I think that's it's fairly well-known that I've somewhat of a fascination with Japanese instruments made from 1976-1986 in the Matsumoku factory under the Aria Pro II banner. For the last ten years or so I've been making replacement preamp modules for their classic SB-1000 basses, and doing a few complete restorations for clients. The SB-1000 was an active single-pickup four-string bass made in two versions '76-'80 and '80-'86. It was made beyond this time in various forms, and is still made by the current incarnation of Aria Pro II, however the classic
  2. Starting up the new thread for 2014. Got some great projects for this year. More multiscale madness, headless builds, another express run, and maybe some multiscale basses. Expect custom pickups, exotic tops, and as much instruction as I can manage. Cheers! --RAD
  3. I don't know how many of you will remember me, but I am back in the luthier business! I finished Davids PRS (#3) and then took over a year off. It was quite stressful at the end, but had many lessons within. Here is a pic of it all done. More upon request (as with the rest as well). Before that (for anyone who doesn't know me) I built 2 tele's (one is my first, other commision) and then completed (routed, finished, set up) a tele from an ad on kijiji for 350$ Between then and now, I attempted a dual build and learned more, and didnt finish them off. More lessons, mostly with fretting
  4. Over the years I have done bits of work here and there for Devin Townsend and Strapping Young Lad. I have the privilege of meeting the guys many times over the years. All good times. The second guitarist of Strapping Young Lad - Jed Simon - is probably one of the more under-rated metal guitarists out there and was most commonly seen sporting a custom ESP Flying V over the decade or so that SYL were active. Jed was kind enough to supply me with bits and pieces of information about "whitey" which I cross-referenced with specs from the ESP NV. The production ESP model is fairly similar howeve
  5. Relatively simple project remit - two Les Pauls made from Khaya Mahogany and Karelian Birch. One is to be receive a relic'ed "Gibson-ish" look with a black headplate, faded honeyburst, etc. whereas the other is to be more or less natural and is being made as a surprise birthday present for my wife. Shhh! There are many threads around the net which detail "vintage" Les Paul builds better than I can so I will merely make reference to these rather than rehash the information in them or worse, duplicate contentious information and create more confusion over certain details. The greatest resour
  6. My plate is well and truly being filled this Autumn. In addition to the other projects on the boil I am fulfilling a long-standing wish to make my own "Red Special". Unfortunately since I am putting my energies into advancing my skills in manufacturing repeatability I am making two or three of them! The underlying basics are common however each one will be expressed in a unique manner. - "Back To The Light" relic More-or-less authentic Red Special aged and distressed to resemble the three decades of wear visible at this stage. Slave labour utilised, getting my son to mill a the tremolo un
