AGP #523 – “Clean Machine”
3 String Fretless Guitar
Scale : 648mm / 25½ inches
Strings : .046NW / .030NW / .021NW /
Tuned: G D g
A bit of a change from my usual Recycled Timber Builds, this one is Hardware Store Purchased Timber from a couple of years back, must have been On Special.
The Box Body is 12mm Radiata Pine Lining Boards, and the Neck is 42mm x 19mm Radiata Pine, all Timber is coated with a Golden Teak Stain, and finished with 3 coats of my Sam Maloof Poly/Oil Mix and 1 Coat of Paste Wax.
This Build Originally had a 7.4 Chrome Humbucker Ghosted under a Pomade Tin Lid, and despite doing a very similar Build a few years back, which worked fine, this one Squealed and Squawked so much, I had to modify it to its present state.
A 5.7k Teisco Type Clip On Single Coil Gold Foil Pickup is wired through 500k Vol & Tone Pots to the Output Jack. :-)

"Thanks Doug", I also like the Clean Tones, but!, I like the Distorted Grungy Tones as well

I like the woodburning too! Top looks great Alan. I tend to favor the clean tones myself. Excellent build.

"Thanks UJ", Built this one with the idea of trying to get a bit of an Acoustic Sound to it, the name "Clean Machine" comes from the fact that it does sound nice, and reasonably loud Acoustically, and does sound best on the Clean and Acoustic Amp Settings, But!, definitely doesn't like the Dirty Grungy Amp Settings. ;-D
