Just need a good confidence boost here chaps.
This is my project, I have put a maple centre block in a cut my neck joint which I am worried it too shallow?
I have a cone to put in place and a gibson style bridge to go towards the back.
My electrical plan is to have a blending pot betweena p90 and a piezo on the cone; tone and volume too.
Paint job, thinking high gloss Pelham blue apart from the back of the box where the origional cigar details are... Painted headstock too to match.
Can you guys have a look? Let me know your thoughts? I am worried about setting out with a poor chance of a good action... but I am trying.
Hi Rob, by using a heal I can move the neck forward more (2 holes in neck block 2 screw holes on heal) for better placing of saddle position.
I will make somethign nice out of maple to act as a heel for the neck. Im a bit sad I cocked it up really but I am sure it will be ok... Just another bit of work to do...
I guess I can screw and glue it through to the other block inside... :)
Time to sort out tailpiece, electrics if adding
What's Next?...........I'd be working out soundholes and top brace. Looking good.
Sound hole on top "horn" is what I fancy..... electric pots on bottom horn...
Top brace?!?! What' that? Lol
Deffo electrics... which I'm planning..
I guess get a tailpiece on and sort my neck joint then see what kind of action I've got?
Personally, I'm not a big fan of piezo's, unless a rod piezo with a pre-amp, too twangy, I'd stick with just the p90 for a 6 string, but, your guitar....means, you make what you like, so can't help you much with the question, others will chime in, but, I do like the "F" hole if that's what you decided on. "F" holes are said to be the best for sound/volume release from the inside of a guitar. Are the coins going to be inlay, or used a mountings for pots and such?
Going to be a sweet git when done for sure.
The coins are just to show the location of the controls....
I thought the F hole looked good too :)
I like guitars to be asymmetric.
I have two piezos built into my loom, so i can play about with that somewhat. and using a blending pot would mean I could dial in some normaility lol,
