  1. Nice colour... Are you matching the headstock face? or is it fairly vintage tinted? Have you thought of Gold hardware? Bridge n tuners... Would make the body look softer and warm. Pearloid plate will also soften the look with the body colour.
  2. Makes it look 'Busy'... I'd go with the 'All Over' Its not as if its a different strip of wood or grain down the middle. What does the front look like? and is a fair bit covered by a Scratch Plate, twin large pickups and a big-ish bridge?
  3. Not particularly my vibe... but got to recognise KLF as a real game changer...
  4. Just had a dose of LitHotC... 'ers a song for ya!.. Awsome!... Can it really be 40 odd years... Talbot Sunbeam Ti and Minder...
  5. Genuine Question... (from an ex-electronics eng) Why is the Middle On/Of Switch (Fuzz) Lower? If the unit were to be used on its own, not velcroed to a board, would this not tend to try and flip the box forward... and i would of gone for bezels on the LED... Good luck with intetest and sales...
  6. I saw these... Tempting as never tried flats, and flats are usually so expensive... then again if these were no good, would be a waste of £13, and then you still have to shell out for strings... My SR600 is still happily wearing the Rotosound Solo Bass 55 Presurewounds that @Old Man Rivakindly sent me...
  7. Proper people will be along soon... from a novice, i would say if you can lift the edge up with say a fine blade, then get in some warmed pva wood glue... bottle in a bowl od warm water... to help it flow... from both sides, and down from opened end... then bind till the glue dries. Might be a bit of residue to sand down... depending on the rest of the neck laquer and plans, maybe clear nail varnish to stop any lift and splinters?
  8. Rule #1 in design... Form Follows Function... Rule #2 in design... Learn from your mistakes... Ruld #3 in design... Enjoy what you do...
  9. Alan Parsons Project - Stereotomy and I Robot... 1977 blimey!
  10. Nice... and the subtleties of Paul Rudolph... Astounding Sounds...
  11. IIRC... If I Remember Correctly...
  12. Will the pickups need to be sunk in to the body lower than the raised center? If so the raised centre would look like a ramp... with a slight radius on each corner... and the mounting screws won't be 'edging'... Nice... Neck pocket, how much difference? can't a little be taken off each side and the neck pocket made the correct width that way. especially if length needs to be changed for scale length. 3 n 2 on a fender-esque headstock... rather than ya typical 4 n 1 interesting. Colour or Stain? Standard Style scratch plate, none or something else? Whole length to include the V n T controls?
  13. I wonder how much post production has been done on the sound? If ya got the money, a pro or otherwise, it's £500 for a distortion pedal...
  14. The Darker blue on the headstock wings on the blue burst is nice, and way darker than the body edges... wonder if the back is the dark colour. Glo's look a lot subtler than the Bursts in transition and more appealing.... Then again? dark stage, under lights 'n dry ice - them were the days...
  15. Fate telling ya to keep it wood... Danish?
  16. I'm itching about a pb-50... Re-do the headstock. Would need to loose the EDA900 first.
  17. @Useless amateur Have some Karma Points there fella. Nice gesture.
  18. Some stand out finishes on some of this lot... from Wood to Wowzer!... ^^^ and well above the price point...
  19. SR600 & EDA900... The GSR200 is out of shot, sulking...
  20. Nice and interesting intro... but i'm sure you know the rules... Pictures (or pictures of pictures if need be...) or it didnt happen! lets see 'em... specially the old and home grown... Take at a look at the build diaries... ya never know? Edit: Just googled Harmony H49... more knobs than a boy band!
  21. Headstock front and back, and back of body pics may help a bit... I think you have covered some important points... A hand me down from ya Dad, and a good player... Nice hazy anodized looking Blue enjoy.
  22. Love the Rick Bass shape... Iconic... Never even held one. (Don't really like their guitar shapes, look overly fussey) But to me that blue burst makes it look like a cheap toy... too bright i think. Natural Wood, or a Classic Plain Black or White for me... Style v's Fashion.
