Thanks for the compliment - all the top wood is Cherry Walnut is middle - I used it to look like a band around. It has great tone. I picked the cherry bc I liked the the litlle grain waves and the worm holes.
I lined all the cavities with copper tape - it takes away all the buzz. - it sounds so smooth
Topdown and Roger - TY it screams for someone who can really play to give it a go - it has a beautiful sound to it.
Bill- trust me- there are a lot of things I don't do well - i.e.. haven't you heard me sing ? If you need a list - contact my wife - she could give you plenty of examples!
(P.S. - I haven't forgotten the songs I have promised you - I have some stuff down already - I've just been overwhelmed at moment with a million things going on)
Phill and Bill - TY it was quite a project. I am so happy I didn't screw it up... The neck angle was quite difficult - and the cavities for the pic ups also had to match that angle ( 4.5 degrees)
Ed - Thanks for the comment it was strenuous but fun building it.
As you can probably tell - I love to imagine things - and then create them
Thank you to all the chordians for your encouragement.
This place is the greatest !
I was not comfortable after all the work I had put into it to try to put a binding on it. I thought the cherry top sufficed as the bing look.
Bill - I wouldn't have a clue about a price. I really have built these last two guitars ( Strat and LP) as kind of a long term plan - I am hoping my grandkids will someday be playing them and think of good ol' "Pop" when they do.
Thank you so much all of you -
