That is ridiculously cool!
Ah that's very interesting indeed!
Slamo Korina Tele gets a Lollar Gold Foil neck pickup. This was a request from the customer who purchased the guitar. All I can say is nice choice!
Stained the top tonight.
archey, what brand for dye do you use and did you mix this particular shade. i like the deepness of the color.
It's just transtint diluted in water and wiped straight onto the bare maple. I just put dye into the water until I reached a shade that I liked.
Wow, lots of cool stuff on this thread since I last looked. Literally on my bench right now is my Brute proto/#1. Had it under tension for a few weeks so now it's getting some tiny tweaks and a quick clean. A few other things are ready too but this is what I'm most excited about. It kind of brought the fun back, plus it's a new direction for things and very adaptable.
Love what you did with the inlays!
Thanks, I'm pretty happy with that aspect too, and how the face and side inlays work together with the finish. It's not obvious in photos but the green is kind of an optical illusion done with a fine gold sparkle over black.
Mike's Eve, with McNelly pickups and a ...subtle...pickguard.
How about a new benchtop for my benchtop?
I know what im getting for Christmas. I may even get one for Mike (maybe).
I'm really excited about them. So far the response has been pretty good today.
Thanks bud! That's very kind of you!
If the measurements work out I'm thinking of having the drawer on the bottom as a pull out pedalboard, the guitar rack on top of it, and then sitting my Aether and 10u rack on the BT7. It would make things a lot tidier for me!
What about adding a
I feel like it could use somewhat of a ledge to keep things from rolling off and perhaps a net or thin layer of something underneath the neck stand. I'm clumsy.
you don't pay attention either
We brainstormed a few ideas, this came together pretty quickly. We thought about building a pad into the top but if you wanted to use the bench top for something other than just guitar work (like put a TV on it or a place to put your beers) we didn't want anything permanent and padded. If I was a bit more handy, we'd make a cool logo'd pad to go with it. The groove around the rim does help catch things (screws, tools and the guitar itself).
It's not really meant to be something you're doing heavy repair work on, just give you a working surface on a rack we already make.
The D36 drawer as a pedal board holder works GREAT if you are using it between the Alpha and Bravo full stack since you have about 2" extra inches of clearance. When you use the BT7 over the drawer, it fits pedals great but it can be really snug for pedals ON a pedal board.
