Beautiful, can't wait to see it come together and the finished work!
That is going to spectacular. I am watching this thread with great interest.
And here comes first sound sample, recorded on iPhone which was around 1 meter away. Just slapped the neck on and played a bit, no setup yet, strings bit buzing, but anyway, this thing is loud acoustically.
That thing sounds awesome! More Pics please!
@Raimonds ...dude, that is completely awesome. you are very gifted.
Wow I look forward to the finished guitar.
I couldnt decide about colour, first I wanted to stain, but it didnt look good, so I went for spraying. Now its waiting time for day or two, then clear coat and the body will be finished. Still havent decided what clear coat, gloss or matt.
Here is some hint on colour:
the clear coat is on, now I need to wait for some days (according to the internets from 1 day to 6 months ) for the lacquer to cure and then final sanding and polishing.
I am really impressed with the clear coat, there is almost no orange peel and it is really shinny, after polish I will be able to shave using this body as a mirror
First 3 coats:
Last coat of clear:
Just one word: WOW
It's almost ready Need to add strap pins, run ground wire to strings, polish to mirror shine and do some beauty shots in the weekend.
Wow, wow and wow
You have done a great job, you should be very proud.
That's some great work. The unplugged natural resonance it has should transfer nicely when the pickup is turned on (Yes I'm from that camp!!!)
One of my Les Pauls has that same natural "zing" and it's one of the best guitars I've EVER heard amped up!
Very impressive build! I sure you will love it and many others will be interested in owning one.
I wondered if you might tell us about your treatment of the body corners. It appears that the top and bottom have a slight overhang in reference to the side of the guitar. I have never seen another guitar done that way.
There is indeed slight overhang, this comes from the violin design, I like it so I made front and back with a little overhang. In fact the carving around comes from violins as well.
Great work, man! I'm impressed
Makes sense. Nice variation.
Here is really short audio, garageband preset Brit and Clean, volume and tone wide open, no additional processing.
(excuse my sloppy playing)
