  1. Hey, I am planning to build a multiscale guitar (with 6 strings, string length from 25" to 26" and a perpendicular 12th fret) and was interested if there are any neck requirements in terms of stability. Do you think a standard trussrod might be enough or would it need more in order to prevent the neck from twisting (such as carbon rods, etc?).
  2. We are currently about to start developing a range of kits for the DIY community, based around our Multiscale designs. These will be manufactured in Indonesia, rather than the usual Chinese kits, to allow for a high quality level. This will of course mean they are a little more $$$ too. We plan on 6 and 7 string versions, but there are some things we arent sure about. Most kits come as a premade body, and you basically finish it yourself with oil or lacquer, then assemble. Usually a headstock is either precut, or its the paddle arrangement so you can design your own. We'd like to
  3. Well I finally started my first guitar build! Got the body template cut out of 3/4 MDF and trimmed the walnut slab down to the correct width using a band saw and a plane. Also finished my workbench! The frame is made from a 70 year old door frame and the top is 4 pieces of 3/4 MDF glued together. LW
  4. No more stalling. The title says most of it, but a few pictures should fill in the blanks. White Limba, Padauk, Wenge, Hipshot stuff, single TV Jones Filter'Tron Classic Plus, 628mm ~ 648mm Multiscale (approximately Gibson to Fender)
  5. I am on the warpath of trying to figure out what scale I should use for the 1st and 6th strings on a multiscale electric guitar. I used to use .009s, but after trying .010s and liking the tone (and using them for a long time), I recently tried .011s and discovered (much to my surprise) that they weren't noticeably more difficult to bend. So now I am wondering what gauge strings I should use for the "best" tone (perhaps thicker is better to a point), but this post is not about that. If I settle on .011s, does that dictate an optimum scale for the 1st string to get very good tone? 24.5" to
  6. View File Surunmaa 8-string compound scale guitar The Surunmaa design is an outline for a basic compound scale 8-string guitar over a 720mm (28,35") and 666mm (26,25") compound scaling. Initially designed for a single soapbar pickup (EMG 40-style, Seymour Duncan soapbars, etc.) with a minimal control pattern, the Surunmaa is a guitar focused on a tight toneful low end whilst maintaining a looser top end for more expressive solo work. The bridge configuration features the recently-released Hipshot Solo bridges allowing through-body stringing to be
  7. Hello again everyone! It's been a year since I finished my explorer and I'm getting the itch again! This is one which has been in the pipeline for ages, but I wanted it to be right and it has slipped down the order a bit. As it happens, it works out quite well - This will be my seventh guitar build/renovation project, and to celebrate I'm biting the bullet and making it a seven string! At the moment, I'm sourcing parts/measurements/info/ideas but here are the current specs (subject to change through revealed ignorance!). * Through-neck (with contrasting lams) * "Black
  8. I've been itching to build a multiscale and I've never personally owned a 7 or 8 string. I decided to give them a go in one build. Some of the details are, as of yet, undecided. So far I have: 27.5"-25.5" multiscale 29 frets, Dunlop 6100 Seven Strings, I'll probably do the ABM single string bridges Instrumental Pickups, some sort of custom set Alder or African Mahogany Body Curly Maple and Black Walnut Neck Indian Rosewood or Birdseye Maple Board Painted in some sort of Dayglo color. I have the neon green, red, or yellow. First things first. I drew my full size plan. I

  10. Guitars and basses using compound scale lengths have exploded in popularity over the last two decades. Originally the province of boutique luthiers such as Ralph Novak, Ormsby Guitars, Conklin Guitars & Basses, blackmachine, Dingwall, .strandberg* (plus too many others to list) with several luthiers here on ProjectGuitar.com having designed and built their own, the last few years have seen compound scale length instruments become a mainstream feature. How and why would we incorporate more than one scale into an instrument? What advantages or differences do they actually offer? What ar
  11. Well i think it's time to announce my next build. This guitar will be a Multiscale (25,5 - 26,5) hollowbody.

Neck will be flamed maple with black and white ebony fretboard. bindnings will be claro walnut,black abs and with abalone purfling. the hardware will be gold. The finish of this guitar will be transparent white. I will take a lot of influenses from this guitar. http://iheartguitarblog.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/03/0616EXXX54BPFMT
  12. Greetings! I'm new to the forums and have enjoyed looking at all the awesome projects other builders have shared! I'd love to get your opinions of the two new models I just completed. I'm finally fulfilling a long time dream of mine to build instruments as a small business here in Northwest Georgia. I just started the business back in May...we'll see how it goes...baby steps! The first guitar specs: Body: Mahogany Neck: 5 piece Mahogany/Flame Maple Top: AAA Quilt Maple Finish: Midnight Blue/Oil Fretboard: Indian Rosewood/12″ Radius Frets: 24 Jumbo Frets Scale: 25″ Nut Width: 1.75 inch
