I've done a few furniture projects in the same style and get pretty similar results regardless of the finish. I've used several different varnishes and hardwax oils.
This guitar is with whittle waxes hardwax oil. My process is several chars to get very deep ribbing, and sanded with a...
I ordered the neck from Baguley guitars - it's pretty great!
Locking sperzel tuners, quite thin - 19mm.
I made the body myself with traditional japanese wood fired technique.
Pickups are dimarzio dominion set and graphtech saddles
I was thinking about stripping back the neck and back of the headstock on my M80M, then dyeing it black so it looks like the full M8M.
I guess I would sand back the finish, then dye, then use a hardwax oil.
Is this a bad idea? Any suggestions or tips?
I tried one of the Ichi sigs in a store the other day and thought it was really good.
Now I'm torn between buying one of those and getting a BKP cobra set to put in it, OR, I can buy a used Fender Elite telecaster for around the same money.
I'm sure the strat is built far better, but the Ichi...
So I have an M80M (29.4" ) and a 30" Oni. The idea here is to have a ~35, tuned to E (same as 8 string), with like a 0.064 or 0.054 or thereabouts. Basically a normal guitar, with normal guitar strings, and a 35" scale. Sorry, if I'm not making it clear. Basically like a proper version of the...
Has anyone ever taken a bass guitar and rebuilt it as an 8 string?
I was contemplating getting a cheap project bass, stripping it down, replacing the nut, tuners and electronics with guitars, then djonting into oblivion.
Anyone tried this? Any reason its a bad idea?
I have a 2013 Jackson B7 with an oil finish. The support site for Jackson isn't clear on how to treat it.
What would you suggest? High quality furniture polish, or just normal guitar polish or something else?
I put some BKP aftermaths onto new baseplates and installed them in my ormsby. Some other smaller pickup companies like Instrumental (I think) will do pickups to the same spread.
You can also get the stock pickups rewound as another option.
I have an ESP Eclipse with stock EMG 57/66 and it is quite a noisy guitar. There is a fair bit of electrical interference so was considering swapping the pickups. The cavity looks like it has been shielded correctly too.
I have a bunch of passive pickups that would do the job, but the wiring is...
