Re: Mock up

Cheers Ray I'm doing mock up in some scraps before hand so I can dial in the bridge. I'll use your tips to get there. It seems like one of those bridges that you really need to get 100% perfect due to the small amount of movement in the saddles. It's a well made bridge just a bit on the small side. ...

Re: Mock up

Cheers for the reply Ross. Not at all I haven't done much reading up on wiring, circuitry etc. I know the pickups I like the sound of and I have a few random ones sitting around that I hate. I haven't found a dimarzio pickup that I like yet. I have a few Benedetto B6 series pickups I wouldn't mind t...

Re: Mock up

Sorry Ross I wasn't clear enough in my original post. I'm building a 12 string tele thinline and a few standard teles as I'm way out of practice with my router. I've been looking all around the web doing research. To me 12 strings with tremolo just sounds like a tuning nightmare. Some people buy the...

Mock up

I'm starting a 12 string partscaster and the bridge has 6 intonated thru body holes. Just wanted some opinions as to whether I should find an alternative to having the ferrules on the back straight or keep them staggered on the back of the guitar. Or am I committing a cardinal sin by keeping them st...

Re: Miratone or Wattyl Stylewood

I was reading somewhere on the forum recently (can't recall exactly where) that if you use the mirotone sealers in your finishing system (i.e sealer then topcoat) you run the risk of cloudiness in your overall finish due to the matting agent within the sealer. So for matt/ satin furniture it's not s...

Side Bending Practice

I'm toying with the idea of using 2 mm oak edging that you'd use on an edge bander in a cabinet making workshop for making some laminated sides for a hollow body electric. I'm using a bending iron/ heat gun with a spritz of water to do the bending. Surprisingly the pieces are even fairly stable when...
