Thanks for the reply Andrew. If you look down the page in the Luthier section [about 15 posts down] you will see 3 Guitars I've built. If I played guitar I would be a Lefty, I build these guitars for my sons. They are both leftys. Thanks for the reply Lowtones.I've got alot of designs combining metal and wood, But I,am limited with the with the small amount of tools.As for pickups , Not sure yet. My son hasn't tried a Active type pickup yet. Thanks . Mark.
Thats very impressive, not just building them but that you are making custom guitars for your sons. I hope they appreciate it (it took me a few years after my teenage years before I truly understood what it was for my father to do such things for me)
I have to admit, my guitars and guitar making are very "common".. I cant bring myself to try something outside the traditional sense.
You obviously dont have that hinderance!
I would love to hear more about your trem as well. I do home machining as a hobby (although not for my guitars, I mainly do model engineering, ie, small internal combustion engines) and also do some metal casting. I would love to someday incorporate my own bridges, and other metal compnents on some of my guitars but I havent the time to devote to it now.
Hello, I build these parts from aluminum stock,No steel ,cost to much for chroming .Aluminum polishes up real nice. No fancy lathes or CNC machines .[I wish] I design the parts using the tools I have , a Bandsaw .belt sanders for shaping, etc..Thanks, Mark.
