Speak for yourself, I dig the "in progress" pics. Sounds like you're looking for a sears catalog
I don't remember saying that's all the pics that should be shown.
Wow. Curious: how long do you expect it to take to build 100 guitars?
LOL whatever you say, my man.
(wait for it)
And his car broke down today and everything.
i know, i saw, i sad
Narad, next time someone puts up a 'hello darkness my old friend' thread due to their Schecter having slightly misaligned frets dots we can talk about whether or not people are a bit sensitive on this forum.
I'm not saying the reaction to these pictures isn't justified, I'm saying that I've seen people get worked up about a lot less. Not quite apples to apples I know.
Generally agree but that fret markers ... I bet i get better results by nail laquer in home
I'm honestly laughing right now at all of this. I made a comment a few pages back in this thread pointing out the likelihood of the *exact* same scenario that is unfolding down here. While I really cannot fault the idea of people wanting their hard earned money to live up to their expectations...it's almost like you guys should start building your own guitars (only kidding)
All that aside, I honestly think it's good that he's on here jumping in, providing context and real knowledge of his guitar building, because well, this is his true customer base. Maybe his idea of a custom guitar doesn't perfectly line-up (see what I did there) with everyone's expectations, but I'm waiting to see how the product really does and how people react to it. It probably plays impressively well and has a unique tone. I've never seen someone use Cedar for a body which I think is pretty cool. The body shape and opposing-grain construction are interesting. Every brand has growing pains, maybe it is our fault that we expected a 100% perfect product the first 100 pieces from a brand new company.
I hope to see these issues resolved as much as the next person too, because I was expecting a lot better than this than the pictures I've seen. He is probably right that it does not really affect playability in the least, but I will likely not be able to touch my hands on one any time soon.
You guys see this yet?
What’s the waiting list on Abasi headstocks to clip onto my Bodens and Salens?
Cedar is not that uncommon, other luthiers use it since years. It's definitely one of the lightest woods available for bodies (besides Pine) which is reason enough to use it. I also built a Strat with a Spanish Cedar body - it's so soft that you can cause dents with your fingertips, but machining that stuff is super easy and the guitar is very light. Needs a thicker PU coat to protect the surface though...
Can't wait for Tosin's country album
A thousand chickens in 8 modes at 228 bpm.
Ugh, look at the rough edges on that pickguard
Guys I'm kidding
It's OK, it's a low serial number model.
Not as kidding
OK I know it's the film
Hah thanks for that. And now to remain true-to-form, now I'm forced to respond that it's actually the clear protective film that you're seeing. The guard itself is cut cleanly on the CNC, I promise.
I thought that was really obvious lol
