  1. Guitar: Instrument Discussion
    The last of the 24 fret super strats I was originally building for Landon Guitars before USACG/Landon went away. Finally took the time to finish this one. Like the others, the heaviest swamp ash I could find for the bodies. I originally wanted maple bodies but since not many people dig the...
  2. Guitar: Tech, Electronics and DIY
    Any advise on installing a Floyd Rose locking nut on a new build? I've only ever used typical nuts (bone, graphite, plastic, etc.) In most cases, I can file it down and use a feeler gauge as a "safe edge" filing down until the nut slots are perfect. Seems like it would be tough to do that...
  3. Guitar: Instrument Discussion
    This has become my relaxing evening watch lately through quarantine. I have no idea if these wind up being great instruments, but they sure are beautiful, and this guy's videos are awesome.
  4. Guitar: Tech, Electronics and DIY
    Hey all, Given that I now can't rehearse, lift or see friends during the weekends due to the UK lockdown, I needed something to do... So why not revive an abandoned project? I got a reversed Ibanez neck 2 years back for this same idea but never followed it up due to lack of funds, but NOW it...

    I havent built a PC in years and I need some help. I am a Cad operator so this will need decent graphics and be able to handle 32GB of ram. Where do I even start these days?

    NO TRUSSROD :pissed:
  7. Guitar: Instrument Discussion
    I wanted to build a guitar for an old friend and bandmate, and he said he'd love something resembling a Firebird. This is the result, mistakes and all... The body blank started as 2 pieces of swamp ash, and for the riser in the center I added a piece of somewhat curly maple. Neck is maple/ebony.
  8. Guitar: Instrument Discussion
    Long story but basically was on a Fountainhead kick and decided I needed a fretless guitar. Considered buying something cheap and modding it but didn't see anything I liked much, plus I'm OCD about matching guitar, so I decided it'd be fun to try a Parker style build to match my two main...
  9. Guitars For Sale / Trade / Wanted
    Don't really need to say much about this to be honest. Y'all know what these are. Currently retailing for £2500 with a 6-9 month wait time. Grab this for £1750 + shipping. I'll cover half of the shipping cost in the UK. Elsewhere, you pay for shipping fully. You're also liable for your own...

    I'm moving house in a couple of weeks and I'll need a new desk (the current one is built in). I'm torn between buying something off the shelf like the Ikea Fredde or making one. Any one gone the DIY route and feel like posting pictures or tips? I'm looking for something that'll take my PC tower...

    Hopefully this will work. Just posting the gallery link...this build has been so damn pic heavy trying to remember everything... https://photos.app.goo.gl/NfjmpJXu9Q7hcPhB7
  12. Guitar: Instrument Discussion
    Yep, I made one of THOSE. I love headless stuff, I'm a function > form guy and I actually started to love the shape the more I looked at it. So this goes out there to the rest of you with questionable taste. This was originally supposed to be a 'quick and dirty' type build. The initial woodwork...
  13. Guitar: Instrument Discussion
    So ages and ages ago I bought a Warmoth Blank to do a Mockingbird project, since Warmoth isn't ballsy enough to do Mockingbirds as an option unfortunately. Anyways, the blank showed up, and it clearly wasn't big enough to do a Mockingbird, in fact, it wasn't big enough to do any cool shape...
  14. Guitar: Tech, Electronics and DIY
    I found this on Facebook and it piqued my interest. That junction box in the bottom right looks like a sleek and simple solution to run 4CM from the pedalboard with an all-in-one cable. My current setup works fine, however, this interests me because it's just so easy. Setup all the cabling in...
  15. Guitar: Instrument Discussion
    UPDATE!!!!! Some video demos of the guitar! ORIGINAL POST: Old thread about it on another forum: http://www.metalguitarist.org/forum/guitar-tech-electronics-and-diy/78289-arsestick-girlfriends-guitar-build.html Basically, she woke up a morning about a year ago, draw a guitar on a post-it...

  17. Guitar: Tech, Electronics and DIY
    Been wanting to build one of our(USACG) new 24 fret, 25.5" scale necks for a while now. Finally getting around to it since I have had one of the bodies for one here at home. This will be a slow-ish work-in-progress thread since we are pretty slammed right now. Grabbed a roasted maple neck...
  18. Guitar: Tech, Electronics and DIY
    Why wait until you've finished a project to start another one? I know what I'm doing here, you don't ;) you'll have to work out what's going on along the way. First progress pic:
  19. Guitar: Tech, Electronics and DIY
    Today some of the first materials for my girlfriends guitar got delivered! She's going to build it mostly by herself (because unlike me she can actually build stuff and not just rampage). But I'm complementing that with my vast knowledge about guitar construction! Currently it's called...
