  2. Great!
    Do you plan to have some f-holes on the top?

    What about the neck angle?
    Will the bridge be short?

    Congrats!
     
  3. Looking good. Tell us more please.

    Well, my long lasting wish was to get an transportable, reliable, nice EUB. So me and local luthier (well... not so local, but ok) designed an EUB, that you see. The neck angle is smaller than normal... its EUB, ya know :D Body is 100% acoustically diesigned, so there will be as many vibrations as possible. Yes, there will be F holes, of course. I will be using Magnetic and piezzo pickup. For magnetic ill use KRivo pickup which is made by forum member jflojazz( or sth, sry :D), and for piezzo, im still deciding between FIshman full circle and David gage realist. I will connect them together with K&K dual channel preamp. EUB is 3/4. I already got strings for it, Daddario helicore pizzicato medium gauge.

    I can't decide which color to choose for the body... Help me :) OF course transcluent, because body is made of beautiful flamed maple!

    If somebody wants to know more about it, ask please.

  7. Very NICE!!!! Keep us posted!
     
  8. I'm a bit of a purist with colour - if you have a lovely piece of wood, don't mess with it! I'd maybe rub the slightest bit of tint in to warm up the shade, but a nice piece of maple looks gorgeous a la naturale

  11. Beautiful!

    The back of the neck is usually left alone though, don't you fear it'll feel sticky?

    Best,
    François
