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.
Thanks Doug. Unfortunately the full stack would be too tall but I wouldn't be using an extra board within the drawer itself so it might be ok. As it turns out, my Aether and rack side by side are about five inches too wide but that's a solvable problem.
Sanded back the blue some. I was trying to get the PRS faded denim color. Looks pretty close to me.
How high of a ceiling do you need to do the stack with a drawer? I asked you this once, but have moved since then.
We recommend 8' standard ceiling.
Thanks. Will measure.
Just finished this one today. My first bass!
Wow, that turned out really well.
I strung it up with the strings backwards the first time -_-
Prototype for a new body style. I'm calling this the Instigator, after the guy that talked me into it. The main idea is a small body so I can use some heavier woods without having to do chambers or glue. This poplar body is about .7 pounds lighter than the poorboy bodies. Should be about 6.8 all buttoned up. I did the design with the curved line tool in Excel.
Also finally tried a narrower width at the nut. I've been hovering around 1.71 to 1.73 and this one is 1.65". Probably not a big deal for most of you, but it took me four years to get around to it. Now just need to work out the string spacing. The neck is Goncalo Alves.
My first try at the Doghair finish on this Honduran mahogany Tele. i used Feibings black dye and copper metallic pore filler/paint. It still needs fill and top coats and I need to decide on what I am going to use - lacquer, oil, ca? I may go with ca on this one. I have been wanting to try it.
I also just finished this sweet JM style made from the same wood.
Love the knobs!
One last shot of this one all buttoned up, front and back. Just waiting on the Mono bag to ship it.
Really pleased with the Rutters bridge!
Who likes zebrawood?
That will do nicely! Very nice!
Fed Ex will be delivering this to me this week! I can't even sleep...like a kid on Christmas Eve.
