Doing a little mockup on Space Cowboy III. I'm leaning towards TV Jones Powertrons on this one. I may end up using the roasted curly maple neck but with a wenge fretboard instead of matching roasted maple. Also doing some painting. Cardinal red is nice. Here's all the necks I'm currently working on. The other day I realized if you go through every piece of maple at Lowe's you can score some nice curly maple.
I've got a couple irons in the fire. Did some spindle sanding, started some MDF templates, letting some lacquer cure, and about to sand some primer prepping for paint.
Score. Show up to a gig and my man @sam_bouve_bass
brought me my black limba firebird body back from being planed. This thing is going to be sweet.
Today I routed a gorgeous Black Korina (Limba) #Warmoth #strat
body to accommodate the new #Fender
Elite neck with the heel mount truss wheel. Fits like a glove, and I LOVE this compound radius!!
Just got a package from @stewmac_guitar
. A maple neck blank, a couple hotrod truss rods, and some pre slotted pre radiused fretboards. Going to attempt to make my first necks. I have maple, pau ferro, and black limba all with rosewood boards. Next step is making some templates, designing a headstock shape, and then lots of filing, rasping, and sanding.
Rough cut out a few bodies today. Here's the black limba (korina) with some of the hardware that I have laying around. It's going to end up with a half Tele bridge and most likely two Mojo UK Mojotrons with a Tele neck and controls.
Got around to making plans for this black korina blank. Cutting it close with the Firebird shape, but I've been loving playing my telebird Space Cowboy lately. The other two are super light pine bodies, so hopefully the change in wood will get rid of some of the neck dive. Also love the natural center stripe instead of the raised center.
