  1. I've got some of the Oak left I could thin it down and do a matching headstock like on my $$ build.....👍🏻
  2. The more I look at it I'm thinking your right it needs at least a rosewood fretboard but I might stain the neck walnut or something like that?...... 👍🏻
  3. Heres what I'm thinking.... Not sure about the maple fretboard tho? But with a different headstock shape, Opinions please......... 👍🏻
  4. I think I'll leave that for the likes of Andy to build! The top has got a nice bit of a grain pattern to it which I think will really look good when grain filled.... 👍🏻
  5. I'm using the same shape that I planned to do the 6 string body but I've taken about 20mm out of the middle to keep the dimensions right Gluing up the body blank which is Sapele and the top is going to be Oak with a Ebony-esque demarcation line between as I really liked that combination when I did my $$ build The top is going to be Black grain filled again then just danish oiled, I'm thinking of maybe doing a chamfered edge on it instead of rounded for a change? I'm going to go for a full paddle head flat headstock neck I'm not sure which would look better Rosewood or Maple fretboard? As far as pickup config I'm not entirely sure I'm leaning more towards a single MM but that could change? hardware will probably be Black?.....👍🏻
  6. This post cannot be displayed because it is in a forum which requires at least 1 post to view.
  7. Its virtually finished just got the electrics, put the strap buttons on and do a set up......... 👍🏻 On to the next one!
  8. I think that should be a thread all of its own! 😁
  9. You just made me be sick in my mouth a bit!! 🤮🤮 Why would you do that and ruin a perfectly good picture!?! There's only one place Tort (I've just been gagging even typing the word!!) looks good and thats in the bin!!
  10. I like the gold hardware idea but I think I'll leave this how it is When I get round to doing my 5 string P that's going to be Satin Black with Gold hardware....... 👍🏻
  11. I thought I'd try it black and I think that looks better than the white?..... 👍🏻
  12. Thanks I think it'll have to be white as I'm allergic to tort 🤮
  13. I've had a little play with the pickguard shape and I'm quite liking it...... 🤔 The next question is White or Black?...... 👍🏻
  14. Also on my P version I'm thinking does it need a pickguard? as I keep looking at and think it looks a bit bare? Obviously this is a very rough design I need to tweak it alot...... 👍🏻
