Active electronics in a surf guitar? That'll be 5 lashes for your penance. What horrors next? Electronic reverb? Air conditioning in your woody?

Sold my electric gear not too long ago:

- Fender Standard Strat, maple neck with Texas Special pickups
- Vox Cambridge 15 Pre-amp tube
- Fender Hot Rod Deluxe Full-tube
- And my pride and joy below 3-color sunburst American Texas Special Strat - Rosewood neck, Texas specials, with a SD Pearly Gates Humbucker.

Now I just strum a beat-up Epiphone PR5-E (Acoustic/Electric).

I never actually played any surf stuff. Back in the days when I did that for money, it was principally blues, with some early Jethro Tull covers (my main instrument is flute), some original stuff heavily influenced by Peter Green, and a few Grateful Dead covers just for variety.

Here's my alumitar. It's got 10 strings, 7+ octaves of range (same as piano). Made from scratch. Coil my own pickups. There's more at www.geocities.com/ubertar. Click on the instrument page link at the top right.

im for making it a sticky

im currently making my own custom. no pics yet, sorry. im currently playing on a monterey stage series, blue, few years old, two single coils and a humbucker, on heavy strings. i like it, but it really is a first guitar. my ex girlfriend has an identical one.

so far, the one im making will look between an ibanez and a strat. the body is queensland maple, the neck and headstock is that of a strat. probably looking at one double coil which can be split into singles (at the bridge) and one single (at the neck). thats it so far, sanding takes AGES!

Default neck-thru-body

hello you all!

well, here is my contribution, besides building a DAC I've been busy the last (few) years with building two guitars. Here is a pic from the latest one, almost finished so only a pic from halfway to give you an idea what it will be.

The guitar has a neck-through-body, made of maple with a ebony fretboard. 24 frets in total. The body is made of (several layers of) mahony.
Machineheads are from Gotoh (the small ones) and I've fitted a Graphtech nut on it. The elements are Seymour & Duncan (Jeff Beck at the neck and Duncan Distortion at the bridge). The bridge is from GTR.

I've builded mostly at the university where I study (Delft) where we have most of the necessary machinery (sanders, bandsaw, etc). Most of the work was to make the neck, the rounding, the rounding in the fretboard, the shape of the head, etc.
Then the body, making it fit tied, making the holes for the electronics and the elements was the other half of the work. In the end, don't underestimate the work needed to finish everything properly .

If I have more pictures (hopefully in a few weeks) I'll post them too,

Chris
