Show me what ya working with :) Guitars People! ;)

Let's see some guitar pics! Fronts, backs, inlay work, cool rosettes... What ever you have and want to share!

I had a pretty extensive collection about a year ago but have sold off the ones that didn't get played enough to justify keeping.
Here's what I've currently got (nothing fancy but all are real players...IMO)

'80 Yairi Dy-75

Re: Show me what ya working with :) Guitars People! ;)

Hey Pix,

      How do I post some pics.Remember I am old and slow and It took me a year to figure out how to post some vids on youtube.
I would love to play your yairi's,I think my yairi is one of the finest guitars as far as detail and quality of workmanship.The small body won't stand up to jumbos and dreads but what a nice guitar plugged.Are the necks on your yairi's fast and smooth?

Hey Wayne, This should help with posting pics. http://www.chordie.com/forum/viewtopic.php?id=11322   

Yea, the the necks are very nice on the Yairi's! To me they have the absolute best playing neck of any acoustics I've had my hands on. It's amazing how consistent they are considering each one if shaped by hand http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9j3__CnZAQM There's a few more good tour vids on youtube if you want to check them out as well. I also have a DY74 but I keep it at a friends house where we practise a lot and don't have pics uploaded of it... -Pix


Very nice Det! Love the look of that pickguard smile

Here's a family portrait. Left to right:

Composite Acoustics 7i (now called GXi I think) - my everyday go to guitar
Fender Uke - a fun toy
Alvarez 12 string - a joy to play - Pix remembers this one
Gretsch Americana - my sons guitar really, but a solid wood fun time
Takamine EF508C - plays and sounds great, but she is somewhat neglected.

Built it.  Grand total of $47 in parts, and most of that was the tub, which I paid to much for because I bought it at the local small town hardware store.  If I'd have done the whole thing at Home Depot, it probably would have cost me less than $30.

I added a $0.59 teak plate I bought at Goodwill to the underside of the tub.  The string is held on with an eye bolt, and the wooden plate vibrates against the tub.    It's still out in the garage, so I'll go take some pics and see what comes out.

Re: Show me what ya working with :) Guitars People! ;)

Hey Tops,
I have an idea,how about grabbing that twelve string and coming to Wyoming for the Bighorn Mountain Festival July10-12 and I could give that 12 a workout.It looks like a dandy it looks a lot like my WYSB Yairi which is a sunburst 6 string.

Wayne,

I did a search for the festival and that sounds like a blast. Looks like beautiful scenery too.

http://www.bighornmountainfestival.com/schedule.htm

Unfortunately, I'll be doing the beach that weekend instead of the mountains. Should be doing lots of jamming right here:

Maybe next year!

Re: Show me what ya working with :) Guitars People! ;)

OK, here's the detailed layout of washtub bass engineering.

This is the $1.50 eye bolt used to connect the string to the tub.  As you can see, it is quite complicated.  The other side has an eyelet just like this one.  The line is nylon, I forget which size, but it's a 7' segment, and cost me $.25 a foot.

http://img8.imageshack.us/img8/9327/eyebolt.jpg

This is the actual tub.  There are two kinds of tub you can get.  "Hot dipped" which is shiny and stronger, and the other kind (like this one) that isn't as strong but sounds better.  This one is a 16.5 gallon tub.   Bigger is louder, or so I am told.

http://img191.imageshack.us/img191/693/tubcloseup.jpg

This is the Jerome's Not Yet Patented Goodwill Teak Delux Resonator.  Otherwise known as "a wooden plate."  This helps to transfer vibration to the tub, and it also helps to prevent from yanking the eyelet through the tub as you yank on the stick.  Stick not pictured.

http://img8.imageshack.us/img8/5936/resonator.jpg

This is the Deluxe Model Rubber Foot (a.k.a. "toilet plunger"), which helps keep the lip of the tub up, and allows it to sound out a bit more.  You can see the delicate custom fitting I cut into the top with a band saw and a metal hasp.

http://img190.imageshack.us/img190/4402/plunger.jpg

And when you put it all together, it looks like this.

http://img193.imageshack.us/img193/4681/tubtotal.jpg

I'm going to build a legitimate four string upright washtub bass the next time I get ambitious.


Someday we'll win this thing...

Re: Show me what ya working with :) Guitars People! ;)

I'm not sure how to do this posting of pictures thing. The University of South Florida journalism department is doing a human interest story on yours personally. They came over to my house and took some pictures and put them on their/my space. I have no earthly idea how this stuff works other than the basic cut and paste thingy-ma-bob-a-jig. Anyways, if it works, you should see my 2005 Gibson J-45 and my 1988 Standard Les Paul;
http://farm4.static.flickr.com/3329/3635604470_24ec41019f.jpg

and then my 1976 Fender Strat and my personalized/customized 2007 Washburn jazz guitar http://farm4.static.flickr.com/3632/3635604520_b94efb679e.jpg



Very nice Toney!  Hope you don't mind.... I editted the post so the pictures would show. I had to upload them to flickr -Pix

Very Nice guys!!!

Thanks for the breakdown Jerome! Looks like a fun weekend project smile

Tops, That CA is a sleek looking guitar! Love it! Can't wait to try one sometime!
I do miss the 12r she was a real joy to play...

Hello geoguitar,
The one I own is the basic HB 15, custom converted to lefty. They don't make this one in lefty style so I had my good friend ( Ed Wright) fix it up for me. It is not close to a ES335 but then again there ain't too many guitars on the market that are. But for the money, I absolutely love my HB 15. I blacked out the logo on the headstock because I know the guitar has no equity and I love to frustrate "look at headstock guitar guy". I thought about painting the ole one finger salute to replace the logo but many of the places I play are family friendly, so that's not gonna happen.(haha)

Yeah, it's a great guitar and it'll run you between $350-$425 new.
