    Its not meant harsh, I have a lot of time for Scott.  I understand if he wants to keep some things to himself... just doesn't need to tell us all that.

    I had a massive screed of text typed... I deleted the lot. 

    In short, I’ll be showing plenty but I’ll also be omitting the parts I didn’t read/view online. These are techniques that work for me, maybe they won’t work for the next guy but when it takes time and money to develop a style and technique I don’t think it’s disrespectful to hold back some info. 

    Perhaps its irrelevant anyway unless you have access to a dedicated work space with a few grands worth of tools and materials.

    Fair enough.   Maybe I am just being grumpy tonight

    I understand the point about being hesitant to share techniques that don't work for all.   I have had that with a few of the things i have shared detailed processes for, but you cant take responsibility for that.

    You could share every single bloody detail, it still doesn't give people the skill to actually pull it off.

    Absolutely, that’s what I was kind of gearing towards but I didn’t want to say it for fear of being narcissistic on my own thread. I could share everything, but it doesn’t mean that the people who read it and see the pics will be able to do it. Well, not without ruining a few bodies in the process ;)

    I will share a lot and I’m happy to add some depth to the thread. There will be before and after pics of the work as I progress but I will omit a few details here and there. 

    I won’t actually be doing a heavily aged piece anyway, if I’m honest. But it will show that this process is long, hard, fun, annoying, tedious, satisfying and amazing all at the same time. And I love it for that :)

    Unless its with a screwdriver and soldering iron, I for one am firmly in the wouldn't be able to do it camp, but I find these builds and the procedures and thought processes behind them fascinating reads.

    Thoughts update... well, not really. I’m not any further forward with my initial thoughts regarding the type of wood I want the body to be made from. After finishing this for a customer...

    .... I’m possibly keeping ash on the table if it’ll end up looking like this. 

    I think if I got alder then I’m going for sea foam green.

    I’ve managed to sort a body from a fellow FretBoarder who had a rather good deal advertised. It would have been rude not to take his hand off tbh!

    So, en route is a 4lb 4oz hunk of alder cut to vintage 50s spec complete with the router hump.

    If I proceed with this body it’s looking like it’ll be a solid colour (although the grain is quite pretty for alder) and out front by quite some stretch is aged sea foam green. With that in mind, I’d rather use a rosewood neck and save my maple neck ideas for the blonde I intend to build later.
