  1. As I have worked on my “relic obsession” (and make no mistake….it IS an obsession!) One of the biggest challenges that I had was figuring out the best way to get that ambered 'vintage' look. The goal I was shooting for was that of a ’62 Strat neck & the color of the headstock & back of the neck (I wanted to start with a rosewood neck first. I plan on tackling an all maple neck at a later time). The target neck has this cool brownish-goldish-amber finish (that’s quite a mouthful!). I wanted to make it look authentic; not only in color…but REAL vintage necks bring out the grain of the ma
  2. "Vintage style" truss rods are highly effective whether they are configured as a bending rod or simply as a compression rod. In spite of many alternative designs working around their shortcomings, the original is still often regarded as the best by many builders. Whilst I won't be weighing in on that lengthy debate, from practical standpoint "simple, inexpensive and effective" are worth the cost of entry alone. This article was written to be a suitable blend of comprehensiveness and brevity....if you remain unsure about certain areas, leave comments below or ask over in the forums. O
  3. Hey, I wasn't sure where to put this, but I was sent this message and thought maybe I would share with everyone. Is anyone familiar with this auction house? Any information would help. "Did you know that one auction house was responsible for selling Jerry Garcia’s guitars for a million dollars a piece, Elvis Presely’s first guitar, Les Paul’s “Black Beauty”, Waylon Jennings' most iconic instruments and a wide array of the rarest Martins (including a 1930 OM-45 Deluxe to the Martin Museum) and other treasured acoustic instruments through the years? That auction house is Guernsey’s*, which is no
  4. Hi Guys, I started building this amplifier around Christmas, I finished it in March and have since decided to start work on some new ideas and turn it in to a company. I hope you guys can give me some feedback as I respect the quality of work that seems to be posted here. Unfortunately I'm having to sell this amplifier to raise capital to build my new idea which is a version 2 of this amplifier. Same internal components and features but in a smaller box. I'd have liked to have kept this forever but needs must! I hope you enjoy this build thread and like what I'm doing. Again any fe

  7. So I'm looking at buying one of the guitars in the topic heading (the '57 being the Reissue version, not the real deal), but I'm not sure which to get. I really like what I hear about the V neck on the strats compared to the typical "C" shape, so that's kinda why it's down to these two. I do like the 22 medium jumbo frets on the deluxe, and the locking tuners as well. But I also like the nitro finish on the Vintage and the thinner neck (I'm used to a Ibanez Wizard II neck on my Prestige). Any suggestions, thoughts, positives/negatives? I will also be glad to hear any other guitar ideas in
