His resonates more like my prototype. If it had "F" holes, it probably could be played acoustically! The "skeleton" on his is much thinner than mine and therefore the top and back resonate more. I suspect it will sound more like a jazz guitar like my prototype does. Visually, it is knock-your-socks-off stunning!!! Boggs

Tim reminded me that his guitar also has a floating top. That is, his braces do not contact both the top and back allowing it to float like an acoustic guitar much in the functionality as the Holdsworth Fatboy. That better explains the added resonance. Boggs

Looks VERY nice! :thu: Are those "blemishes" above and to the left of the tone/volume controls and below the selector switch near the guitar's edge. (not the light reflection, but the other to the right of it- sort of looks like the finish didn't take).

 

Just trying to be constructive. :)

 

Peace :)

It's just the reflection of the light (chandelier maybe?) in the room. You can see a clearer reflection of it on the tops of the vol & tone knobs. :)

May all your thoughts be random!

Hummm... it IS sort of yellowish/orange in color as is the light.

That sure is one sweet-lookin' geetar! The shape is definately not normal, but I love it! Must've been a bit tricky do build, 'cause the top and back isn't the same form, but that really makes the guitar stick out too.

 

God, I hope those "blemishes" are just reflections, it would be a major turnoff with such a small error on such a purdy guitar!

 

What I'm wondering now is: how would that look with gold hardware?

 

Hey Boggs, what was the final cost for these babies? (I'm just getting these "I have to build a guitar myself!!" twitches, and wondering how long I would have to save up money...)

They cost around $550 to $600 to make using those woods and premium stuff in the necks. Add to that, some garage sale tools such as drill press, band saw... stuff like that. Add the 100+ hours it took me to do it free-hand, and you can easily see that a $2000 selling price would still be a give-away. I'd probably build another one or more though if anyone was interested.
