Re: Future Builds - Kinda Not Random

Slow slow slow - wrapping up my lecturing duties for the semester tomorrow and will then have more time available to progress the wood part of the build. Received these today (thank you, George, for organising them). Very useful 4-way rotary switches, as found in Dingwall basses: https://www.flickr....

Re: Recommend a good multi-guitar stand

$400? US? Hmmm, definitely project time.

Is it made of nitro-safe rubber bits?
It gets a little “sticky” but I haven’t noticed any marks on any of the finishes.

Re: Recommend a good multi-guitar stand



I think it's a Warwick (but could be wrong) - designed for 5 but easily holds 9 if you're careful.

Re: Future Builds - Kinda Not Random

Would have made a nice top in itself (glued together the other way, of course): the wenge contrast layer for the neckthrough Kermit:

How did you know, Bruce?



Same delivery but for a fellow OBFer ... of course, you'll never see or hear me with flats of any kind.

Re: Future Builds - Kinda Not Random

Guess what my favourite strings are?



Slow going with the builds, waiting for hardware, electronics and timber ... .

Re: Darkglass 900 v Bamp

Have to flog the Genzler horse here - I have never found my Magellan 800 lacking anything. You have two contour options (one scoops the mids and slightly boosts bass and treble, the other boosts low mids while rolling off bass and treble) and a useable drive channel on top of the clean channel. And ...

The grumpy face is in no way a statement on the quality of the instrument ;) . Played the 6 fretless as well last Friday, backstage blues at Musicland. https://www.flickr.com/photos/94660385@N02/39519112320/in/dateposted-public/ Regards, Michael https://i.pinimg.com/originals/db/27/f6/db27f69ad8796...

Re: Latest Builds

Should have put on a tort pickguard as well, Blaine. Looks fantastic, would love to hear it, particularly because: Noll (the board? Well, strings are metal, frets are metal, so what’s the big deal?😉). So much good stuff coming out of Croydon atm (and from other places as well), incredible!! Regards,...

Re: NBD - My first build - The Galleon

Exceptional job, Davin, most impressive. What does it sound like? Probably “modern”considering the electronics. Also interesting to see you used stainless steel frets (don’t think you mentioned that before) - how did you find working with those? So, gig report to complete the NBD post :D . Regards, ...

Re: Future Builds - Kinda Not Random

Unlined fretless isn’t an option is it? I’d hate to cover any of it up. Not for the Special Q build, Nick, but I have a body (new Manta shape, northern ash body with walnut contrast layer and zebrano top) that was meant to be an unlined fretless but I completely screwed up the neck so there's one b...
