de afwerking mk6-6s & mk6-g6 - blablas is doing a double build

Recommended Posts

No pressure Blablas. Heeheehee

One of the advantages of building from kits is that I can watch the real craftsmen carving their visions out from hand picked pieces of timber while I happily put together some generically shaped parts. All I have to do is finish them really but I get a vicarious buzz from posting my meagre efforts none the less. It's been great because I get advice from those who have built from scratch.

Hanging with the big boys; I'm not that creative but it does me good to absorb the knowledge that is being shared here.

Made a rough neck layout, only the scale and fret positions are absolutely correct.
With the use of this neck layout I was able to modify the body design to something that fits nicely to this neck, around it's 1 to 1,5 cm smaller than the bass body.

Still need to work out the headstock, once I've got the nut and bridge I can do that, not urgent right now.

And sawed the second one as well.

Stacked on top of each other to show the difference between the bass and guitar body.

Yet it's true, haven't felt the desire to do something on them. The last couple of months I could vent all my fabricating urges in my work. ;)

This is by far the slowest build I've ever done. :dash1:

Was planning on doing something on the the coming weeks so maybe I might surprise you.
