well, his reasoning behind it makes sense, he's got 2 strats and a lp. wants something different and pointyish.

also, bshuker, did a bit of autocad dimensioning. the shortest distance between the horn and the neck is... 66.149138726 mm

Well.... This thing has an interesting story.

It was going to be a tele, but I glued the flamed maple BACKWARDS. I salvaged it by changing the shape. Two horns instead of one.

Then I went to route the first neck humbucker spot, and my god damn template slipped and put a visible gouge past where the humbucker ring would go, making the screw up extremely obvious. So I had to make matching fancy pickup thingys to try and cover it up.

It will be stained dark dark red, and the sapele parts will be black.

Set of P-Rails. String through.

Sapele neck/ebony.







Edit: Here is a better look at what the pickup mount things will look like, i just threw a random humbucker in there.


I'm going to stain the wood of it black

Wow as much as you fucked up on that I think it looks really sweet. Good work on covering that up! I'll admit the outer casing on the pickups would probably piss me off because they might get in the way or get scratched up easily (well how I play anyways) but they do look reallllyyy nice.

I've seen basses actually fit with a pickup casing like that, and I loved every part of this! Just shows how a mistake can turn out really nice.
I doubt it'd get in the way, but I can't tell how much they stick out.
I'm very curious about the result of this one! Red and black should come out looking very nicely.

Are you making the neck yourself too nowadays? If so, have you tried and inlays yet?

Just next time don't fuck up flame maple okiez?
