My 12-string here needs replacing with something 6 string electric
I just took a few more photos...
I just set the hardware on the violin so you can see what it's going to look like.
I'm probably going to stain the maple dark blue... maybe... I'm still not sure yet.
But I know it's going to be a dark color.
A few more pics from this morning...
I'm going to finish the carving today and have it ready for finishing by tonight.
One of the scroll... I changed the design a little.
Hope you like it!
What's not to like???
Lookin' smokin' great!!! I wanna play it now...
It is stained now.(dark red-brown) I will put the first coat of finish on it later today and then I'll take some pictures. :thumbup:
ok, the final coat of finish is drying!
This is what it looks like right now.
The color is somewhere between those two... I don't feel like spending the time to correct them.
refer to the whitebalance card to the right of it if you want.
It looks great though! I can't wait to play it. haha
When are you going to make me one?
Whenever you want me to.
I've got nothing else to do now that I've finished mine.
Have you hooked the electronics yet? I'm curious how it sounds.
When I get a solid body I want to tune it an octave down like mitica was talking about.
I still have about 2 days left of work before it will be ready to be plugged in... I'll try to get a recording for you once it's finished.
All it is though is a piezo pickup under the bridge with an extremely simple pre-amp to the output jack..
So, it will sound... like a violin...
I was talking to Mitica and I think that my next violin build will be a 6 string. (FCGDAE)
The next one will have more expensive electronics in it... this is really just a test one for myself.(and I wanted a kick butt violin!) lol
So yeah... if you do want one I still don't know how much I would charge to build one... Not nearly as much as a guitar(they are much easier), I honestly don't see why Zeta charges so much! lol
I finished leveling the finish this morning and it looks great... since I got that done I should be able to fit everything together today and have it done by tomorrow!(although I can't string it up until tomorrow... glue dry time)
freakin sweet stuff, dude!!
