  • a new build, a PRS'ish style thing

    This is nearing completion....

    - ebony fender scale length board, with 22 jumbo frets (were talking HUGE baby!)
    - multi pc flamed maple bolt on neck, schaller locking tuners
    - Schaller dual pivot floating bridge
    - covered Fralin PAF's
    - single tone, single volume (push pull for coil cut on each pup) and 3 way switch
    - carved flamed maple cap, on honduran 2 pc back, 1 7/8 thickness total
    - prs style body
    - offset mop dot markers and mop side markers
    - matching flamed maple headstock veneer
    - deep red transparent finish on top and headstock, faux binding and brown stained back/sides


    I am in the final stages of clear coats, and should be ready to wet sand and rub out Friday. Should be making music by Saturday!:rockon2:

    Sorry for the quick and dirty photos... better ones when I get a chance.

    Oh yes, this is a scratch build BTW - from rough lumber... no buying pre made parts for me Also, am I the only one who thinks its funny that this build is for the owner of a guitar store (who has access to all kinds of fabulous guitars?)

          I like that you're using a maple neck. I'd like to see more of that in set necks.

                Jim,
                This ones actually a bolt on. But I am doing another just like it for myself but with P90's and a set neck.

                The joint is the same... lots of meat either way to hold screws and/or glue. I have never had one of my guitars break yet! And one guy who gigs 2 weekends a month at a local bar with one I built him 3 years back has dropped it more than once.

                        And I even used a router this time to rout all the cavities... no Forstner bits this time.

                        This is also my first Strat style trem. I usually do Bigsby's or a stop tail.

                            Thanks Quarter - I did about 5 samples for the guy... I preferred a bit darker one myself but he wanted a brighter red.

                            Its just NGR (alcohol based analine dye stain) wiped on, then tinted into the first few coats of lacquer. There is also a subtle shading around the body thats hard to see on the photo but noticable in person.
