Well that looks amazing Matt - no other words for it - always knew that was going to pop out but thats cool as!
It's full steam ahead with the next build whilst I'm slapping those Tru-Oil coats on the Leopardwood DC. In all it's Maple glory... it's another 6-string custom DC. The finish on this is going to be quite exquisite, but you'll have to wait until it's done to find out what it will look like
More routing and messy shenanigans in the Kemp workshop today. Started working some more on the competition winner build which is a Korina DC 6-string with Floyd and Seymour Duncan HSS pickups. Edit: and only 24.75" scale length, not something I do often.
First up, some sawdust ...
All cleaned up...
Warning: Pic heavy post
Hope you're all having a good weekend. I've been wiring up some Fishman's and finished this wild beast... @webrthomson
Full spec: 6-string DC with Leopardwood neck-thru-body, Alder body (wings), Leopardwood top with Ebony laminate, Pale Moon Ebony fretboard, Gotoh 510 Series tuners, TonePros T3BT Tune-O-Matic bridge, Fishman Fluence Modern pickups and Tru-Oil finish...
Sorry, I know it's more pictures than usual in one go... Hope you don't mind
Right it's official, I'm now very excited to get my hands on this! It looks amazing with the Tru-oil on Matt
That neck is stunning, great work!
Been a little quiet over the past couple of weeks so have a teaser pic, and just a sample, of what's to come over the next month or so
That green stained Flame Maple top again... But what's this? The Hulk-burst
Me and the Hulk-burst enjoying the sunshine! Should be finished this time next week...
Finished the "Hulk-burst" DC... Flame Maple/Mahogany body, Maple neck, Flame Maple fretboard w/ Luminlay dot inlays, Wilkinson bridge, AT-1 and Cruiser pickups, Gotoh 381 locking tuners and Green-Purple burst under matte finish...
man, the quality of your work looks stunning.
Yeah, been a while but I'm still here and working on a number of builds that will present themselves over the coming few weeks. The first, in celebration of this glorious sunshine we've been having, this yellow SS (actually not influenced by the sun at all, but an idea I had some time ago) in the typical "bridge-only-pickup" style. I went for chrome hardware after seeing an old ESP in a very similar yellow with chrome and thought it suited.
Full spec: Mahogany archtop body, Maple three-piece bolt-on neck w/ reversed head, Wenge fretboard w/ binding, Gotoh Tune-O-Matic bridge and 381 Series tuners, Seymour Duncan Distortion pickup and matte Cadmium Yellow finish...
