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

Nothing up online at the moment. Used to have a group in Seattle called Bakshish. We put out two cds and they're still available. On plenty of sessions with various people, including a song with Daniel Johnston that hasn't been released yet ( a cover of Bowie's Scary Monsters). If you get a chance, see a short film called "the Show" that's been making the rounds at the festivals (it's won a bunch of awards so far) that I did the music for.
I'm working on a solo cd at the moment. If I don't find a label for it, I might just put it out there on line for free.

I play a little bit of guitar and have an Martin D-15 acoustic, a Pimentel M1000 Deluxe classical and a USA std. strat (from the late '80s) but my pride and joy instruments are my viola and violin. The viola was made by John T. Honeycutt, a local maker in 1976.

The violin is much older, and is estimated to have been made somewhere between 1800 and 1850, probably in Germany or Austria. I found it at a yard sale in the late '80s and only recently had it restored to playing condition. Now I play on it regularly in a local orchestra.

I tried attaching the files, but was unable to do so. Here are links:

hello DolbyR,

I do have a truss rod in there, otherwise it would be hard to adjust the neck afterwards. I did divide the neck into three parts and then glued them all together again (with the middle part reversed) to prevend bending.
At the moment, the only thing left to do is to level the frets and to make a decent nut,

Chris
