Members Alchemist Posted March 11, 2010 Members Share Posted March 11, 2010 So I kind of miss my all mahogany G&L Legacy, however, if I were to make it "better", there are a few things I would change.... so I am going to try and build it, wish me luck I want to give it a natural finish, but I dont really like the brown tone of mahogany, so I went with a solid one piece of sapelle.... very similar to mahogany, but it has a nicer orange/redish glow and I liked the figuring on the piece I bought (24x4x14 block).... very nice, not cheap, so I better not f@#k it up I wasnt completely into the mahogany neck and high gloss finish on the G&L, so I ordered a flame maple/indian rosewood strat from the warmoth showcase, with a very dark FB, I didnt want ebony, but the fretboard on my G&L was too light, so I want darker this time around...... the neck is finished in satin nitro... As well, I didnt ever use the trem on the G&L, so I am going shaller hard tail on this one. For pickups, I loved the JB in the bridge, so this guitar gets a JB in the bridge, but I thought the singles on the G&L were too tame and a little noisy, so for now, this guitar gets dimarzio stacked singles in the middle and neck.... All the hardware is going to be black, pickguard is tort, I ordered planet waves locking trim tuners because well.... I like them... I still have to order a few more odds and ends from Stew Mac. Progress will be slow, but hopefully in a few months I will have a nice guitar haha heres a mock up... Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
