I don't think my Raven properly qualifies for the member-built thread because I only actually built the pickups myself. But I'm in a 1-year master luthier course now so there should soon be qualifying builds I could post in there.
I agree with your posts about the helpfulness of singing
Awesome, that would have been a wicked client to have!
I'm a semi-professional (only sometime paid) musician (although I do always ACT like I'm payed)... so part of that is learning as much as possible. Zappa is important to the evolution of guitarists, so I did as much listening as I could so that when a friend wants to do some jazz arrangement of Zappa, I can pick up my sax and say "what song?"
I was just pointing out how that left field quote came out of nowhere.
Despite being an icon to guitarists, so many don't know him. He died 18 years ago or so now. I'm 21 and so many of my generation have no friggin clue who he is, and what the quote is from. So it's left field really
Danica McKellar (played Winnie in The Wonder Years, now writes books about math for young girls) is, if I'm not mistaken, 5 or 6. I think the lowest is an MIT professor who worked with the Good Will Hunting writers and coauthored a paper with Erdos.
My 9 is 62mm wide at the nut with straight frets, 27.5" scale. It's really just a prototype that I hacked together, I'm hoping to get a slightly more refined one put together sometime during the next month. You can check out the build thread:
Hi Dude, thank you for the nice compliment
It is (to my surprise) well-balanced, the body is quite thin and very comfortable, the weight of the whole guitar is only about 3kg (6.6 pounds). The only stupid thing is that i broke the (lower) horn during the building process, so it's shorter then I wanted. I was able rescue the looks, but it doesn't sit on the leg very well. I play with a short strap when sitting (and I play mostly sitting)
What's your fanned frets sevenstring build doing?
Cheers, f l o
Hey, funny you should mention Ergo - I recently tried tuning my 10-string Ergo in all major 3rds! It was really interesting, confusing, and fascinating. I think I've just got too many years invested in all-4ths to convert though
