    here is number 500 which SW did up...

    can anyone guess what my favorite body shape is. the two necks in the back belong to a Series 10 korean AEB and the cedar scroll in the other family shot. Yes those are original Ampegs -AUB-1 and AEB-1 (in process of a little overhaul)

    PS - Bruce Johnson is finishing up #70 for May 1 delivery. Guess what it looks like ))))) Fretted old - style paint job

    So, do you sell these after you've finished them? I'd be super interested in the warrior types...


    Insanely amazing collection by the way.

    some more Fod era wanna bees. a 4 string i have finished but changing out pickups (actually took the pickup for a warmoth project, a 5 string also mon arch . both are visibly a little bigger - mostly area behind bridge...

    then the other fodies with single cut aways. yes the one on the left is a real one #34 ))))) and not for sale. and last is a fody "bolt on" - will need carving after assembly for sure.

    Any way that is the bodies. almost all are imbuya AKA brazilian rosewood face. many have mahogany bodies. most have maple neck with laminates...purpleheart etc every one is a project in process. i have added fret side markers on eachone, some have back plates for cavaities some don't, If anyone has any interest send me an email and i will send more pictures and full descriptions etc. all bodies cost me between $350-450 except the foddy single cut aways which were $550. I would need to live to 200 to finish all my projects and that doesn't iclude the honey do list....as a result i will gladly share these projects with my fellow wishnicks.

    I am traveling on business this week so probably not around much till weekend.

    Have you got you piezo solution yet?
     
  18. Pretty sure I'm abandoning the idea because I couldn't find a pickup that got even one decent review. I'm thinking stacked J pickup instead.

    Looks great!! :eek:


    JUMBO: Those look fantastic! I especially favor the Ritter, Alembic (the more symmetrical one), and Fauxderra Imperials. Where do you live, by the way?
