Tim,
I enjoyed watching this build, Thanks for sharing. Beautiful guitar!

I have picked up a lot from watching these threads. One of my "Ah Ha" moments was just a couple of pictures ago, The one where you are drilling the screw holes for the tuners. You have the piece of wood across the top of the tuners to square them up. Stuff like this makes me feel pretty stupid for not thinking of that. I always just eyeball the tuners, get them where I think they look straight and hope they don't move while I am drilling. That piece of wood is just too simple! :rolleyes:
Thanks
Travis

The Wizard by Tim McKnight, I mean, Uriah Heep!

:D

Mary 05-28-2016 05:13 PM

I know what the song is. I hear it every time a guitar is completed. :)

Neil K Walk 05-30-2016 08:06 AM

Don't sell Tim short. I swear I heard him play a song other than that one! He wasn't bad, either.

printer2 05-30-2016 07:31 PM

Hey, does anyone have something they could bribe Mary with to take a set of pictures of the completed guitar? I think this one deserves to be drooled over.

She might be enticed with a Starbucks gift card ;)

Tim- when did you go over to the "dark side" brother?

Mary 05-31-2016 02:08 PM

We don't plan him staying on the dark side for long, Sharky.

Hey, you Florida boys need to plan to come to the McJam either this year or next which will be our #10. Clif joined us last year and has decided to return. :)

Rodger 05-31-2016 03:02 PM

WOW!!! I thought I was in the wrong thread or had lost my mind. Tim building an electric. I never thought I'd see the day. That is gorgeous!!! Fantastic work Tim!!

Mary - I think we all know what this means... I can bring one of my Tele's and a Mesa amp to the McJam in a few weeks!!! Wooo Hooo!!!

I think it's cool that Tim can travel to the dark side once in awhile.

See you guys in a few weeks!!!!

I think I better start worrying about you boys and all this conversation about "The dark side." :evilgrin:

Doubleneck 05-31-2016 06:04 PM

Going to McJam as well, kind of wondering now if my Les Paul and Mesa Boogie may be a better choice?
