Re: Jazzmaster done a bit differently

Jazzmaster done a bit differently

One for the electric guys. This will be the third guitar I have built for Ben, I guess because I get him and what he's after, so when he asked me to build him a Jazzmaster minus the BS, the issues and with a unique aesthetic, this is what I came up with. I won't bore you guys with the details , more...

Re: Bandsaw upgrade

You won't be sorry Rod,

I have been giving mine a flogging re sawing all the spoils from my Tassie trip, I have a Re saw King blade , some wood slicers and some 1/4 6 tpi's and that covers pretty much every situation .

Changing blades is pretty easy.

Cheers,

Paul.

Re: Black heart sassafras

Hi Peter, I have built two guitars out of it, they both sounded great, the stuff is pleasant enough to use, but does some funny things when exposed to moisture , ( i once applied some glue to a headstock veneer and in the time it took me to turn and grab some clamps it had rolled up like a newspaper...

Re: Jet/Performax 10 - 20 drum sander again

Hi All,

If you have a 10-20 , I strongly suggest you order the Mod Kit from Ken and do it before it goes and leaves you stuck, Ken Kindly did mine super fast , But that still left me without a sander for a few weeks, it's a fantastic fix and is much smoother than the Original.
