New build. Similar design to the 24 Magnum, but with some significant spec changes.
This build will feature the same basic construction methods, and materials, body shape, and top carve as the 24 magnum, but this one will have 22 frets instead of 24, a 25″ scale length instead of 25.5″, a fixed TOM bridge instead of a tremolo, a 3-way toggle instead of the 5-way blade switch, a Brazilian rosewood fretboard instead of ebony, and a quilted maple top instead of flamed, and will also feature a matching quilted headstock overlay. This will be my first build using pickup covers 🙂
This is the block of maple the top will be cut from. Its freakin spectacular!
To the right of the wenge are 6 boards of genuine Bolivian mahogany (Swietenia macrophylla), 3 of those board will be used in this build
Bridge and pickup covers. These will cover Seymour Duncan JB and 59.
Heres those same covers after being soldered to a JB and a 59
An array of templates I’ll use for the build. I designed them in CAD, and a business associate in Sydney Australia cut them for me on a CNC machine.
