  1. Oh well stinky poo happens!! 😁
  2. Its a brand of Kentucky bourbon..... 👍🏻
  3. Heres a quick mock up of the body its going to be a 5er and the MM pickup I've got coming is a sealed one and the neck is going to be all Matte Black, Oh yeah and I thought it looked a bit too plain so I added some fake branding forgood measure..... 👍🏻
  4. I'm thinking that it might look better with black hardware so it will tie in the pickup aswell?.... 👍🏻 And I think I'm going to bin off the pickguard it doesn't look right to me with not having the raised middle section?
  5. It all depends on what look your going for, I have used them on my jaguar build which was a painted finish so it needed a lot of filing and sanding and on my fenderbird build which I've embraced the knackered/rustic look..... 👍🏻
  6. I'm going to tarnish the pickguard so it will probably end up having a lot of different colours in it but I don't know if I should make the control plate out of galv aswell of have it tarnished chrome?? 🤔
  7. I've sanded it back a bit because it was a bit too dark for my liking, tiday I thought I'd make a galv pickguard to see how it would look?...... 👍🏻
  8. Quite a few of my builds I've used reclaimed scaff boards the only problem with them is they are very prone to tear out but its nothing a bit of sanding can't sort!...... 👍🏻
  9. I am toying with the idea of headless as I haven't got one as yet? 🤔
  10. Heres some pics of the kinda distressed look The top has had a wipe of danish oil on it but the back hasn't yet Opinions please..... 👍🏻
  11. For some reason you don't really see alot of barncaster basses and I like to use reclaimed timber so it seems a natural style for me to do, I did think about a MM pickup at first and did a mockup of it originally.....👍🏻 (That is just a neck off another build) I didnt know if I should go all out barncaster and have a number plate pickguard?
  12. I had a thought maybe even an epiphany of sorts why go to the hassle of trying to make an reclaimed damaged old scaffold board look half decent ready for painting by filing and sanding and more filing and sanding etc instead I'm going to embrace the rustic charm of the timber and finish the body in a kinda barn wood (as I really like the barncaster look!!) style with slightly relic'd hardware bit like the fake barrel top guitar builds I've done. I've started doing the body I'll take some pics tomorrow for your opinions....... 👍🏻

  14. Thanks any input or idea's are always welcomed! I'm not sure whether to do a tune o matic Bridge or just a standard fender type? The headstock is probably going to be Tele style This is the pickup I'm thinking of going for? Yeah using old scaffold boards is great for playing sole!! 😁
  15. I feel the same way as you the headstock is awful! I'm thinking with a tele style headstock the weight will be reduced so it might not want to neck dive as much?..... 👍🏻
