Single Cut Fretless 5

Recommended Posts

I contoured the edges ( by hand!) . I wanted a chamfered look rather than rounding over. Here’s a pic.

So neat this, I truly am amazed by this Origin thing.

It’ll be great for block or custom inlays

As an alternative to CNC price isn’t ridiculous, but I will stick with my 2 Tritons and Makita palm router just for now. There is no way I could get my mrs to approve 🤑

I still use routers for a lot of operations. I just tried doing my logo and infilling with resin. Looks pretty amazing. Its great for stuff like that.

I’m experimenting using the Shaper to create a headstock logo. I used a 0.5mm bit and infilled with blue resin. It turned out super crisp!

This will be the sort of instrument that you look at and immediately want to pick up and play, regardless of what you should actually be doing. Very nice.

I’m wondering whether I should take the fingerboard to the pickup or not. If I don’t, I’ll put some matching wood on the neck to hide the laminates. What do you guys think?

I would. Looks a little odd to the eye but as a fretless I think it'd be genuinely useful and give you the range of a 6 string.

Leave it so we can see the laminates - it looks really good having those stripes that line up with the pale wood beyond the pickups.

I'd say put the board up to the pickup if you like a ramp under your fingers. If you don't then keep it to the end of the neck and leave the space under the strings.
