I'm beginning on a new build.... and build thread. The plan is to make a (left handed) 12 string (4 + 2 octave strings per string), it will once again be based on my mk4 single cut body design. Most of the CAD-work is already done, the tuner layout, the placement of the bridge and the fret positions. I've also been working on the headstock shape. Due to the huge amount of tuners I'm limited to working with straight lines, if I try a curve somewhere I run into position problems with them. I'm really happy with the tuner layout so I'm afraid I'll have to live with these straight lines. The advantage of these straight edges is that the fabrication of the headstock will be a lot easier. The details I'm pretty sure of: - 12 strings, 4 + 2 octave strings per string. - mk4 body design. - Bolt-on neck. - 35 inch scale. - 24 frets, brass nut. - Two dual action trussrods. - Schaller 3D-8 bridge (which will need some modifications to be used for twelve strings, and while I'm working on it some other refinements as well). - 4 Warwick bass tuners en 8 Boston guitar tuners. Things I need think about in more detail: - Pickups (two, probably dual coils). - Electronics (active, but which one). - Wood: body, top & back, neck & fingerboard. For the top and back I will use one of these two sets: Rosewood: the first one will be the top. Poplar burl: I'm net yet sure which of these two will be the top.
