The Workbench

I think these are going to be fun.

I love the grain on the side of that neck

3

Yeah they don’t build trees like that anymore.

5

Are the getting hershey bar pickps?

8

neat! the neck join is particularly nice.

10

Very nice work, Curt, you always amaze me! I bet that really is 2 lbs of rock-n-soul!

So many unknowns that I had no idea the geometry would work. Since it’s basically a StratOtonE it should but I made a lot of changes so you never know until the strings go on which is two or more weeks after the last coat, a long time to consider the vulnerabilities. The schoolhouse wood isn’t great for necks so neck collapse was a real consideration but it’s solid with the quartersawn rosewood and dual action truss rod, more solid than the poplar guitar.

Thanks for the look, going to start building these between repairs.

Well that was cool! Thanks again for sharing. Love that you are making your own models.

13

Way cool. I have a gold foil that Gemini made for me. Rob makes some great pickups.

14

So these are really fun to play. My friend Johah Tolchin wanted to check it out before it ships tomorrow, here's the vid.

I like the tone of this guitar. Single note stuff has a woody kind of sound.

well done

Such a beast for its diminutive stature. Very nice.

Way more low end than anticipated, 200 year old wood and great pickups!
