    Jaguar I got a good deal on and thought it looked cool. Switches are a pain. Leo thought the Jag was going to take over the Strat...lol. In the link my buddy is playing not me. Audio starts sucking because the phone was dying. But it can play. I keep it around because it's a weird axe and fun to mess with. Japanese make a pretty good guitar. But shoddy wiring.

    Snow is always welcome here. The entire city pretty much shuts down. But in that pic it's just sun glare.

    Beautiful, just really sweet. Looks like they play like a dream too. I especially like the neck-through. Did you pull the vibrato and bridge off a Fender or one of the Japanese guitars (I had a 60's Yamaha with that type of setup)? What wood are you using on the "LP" semi-hollow?

    The bridge on the offset is a Mastery piece (designed as a replacement for the Fender offset guitars). The semi-hollow has a black korina body and neck and flamed maple top, rosewood board, Bare Knuckle Mule pickups. The offset is semi-hollow with black korina body, white korina neck/ebony board and maple top. It was a prototype of a customer's guitar, seen below (yes, that is a mustache-shaped f-hole!)

    Great job all around! Have a site where I can see more? You do your own finishes too?

    Thanks! My website is http://www.bluetoneguitars.com/ . I'm not building so much anymore, it was always a hobby that allowed me to sell a few, but still a loss leader! Regarding finishes, I've done a couple of guitar finishes, but when I moved from Chicago to NJ, I didn't want to go thru the trouble of setting up a booth, when there are people that specialize in that and can do a better job than me. So I outsource the finish work now and don't regret it!

    Really nice stuff. That Fillmore 2 is especially interesting with the body contours you've done. And yes, most of this is because it's a passion. I had a few pals back in the day who were into building but after calculating all the hours involved and the prices things were selling at, they also slowed down or changed over to doing repairs only. I'm actually sending my LP Gold Top off to Bad Mojo to have it refinished. Spoke to a number of refinisher's and decided to go with them based on his gallery and our email conversations. Although there are a number of good outfits to choose from.

    I just bought this 1984 Peavey Foundation in dark natural finish. I believe this is factory, but I have yet to see another one just like it.

    Next step is to get it set up. Truss rod nut is frozen and there is about .050" string stand-off in the middle of the neck.
    I tried to adjust it, but didn't want to break anything so when it didn't budge, I figured I'd take it to a pro.

    The low E tends to go flat about 1/8" step after playing for an hour or so. This may be the new Rotosound flats I put on it.
    And the 5th and 7th frets are a bit sharp due to the neck being bowed.

    Any advice or can anyone in the KC area recommend a good shop?

    Fun to play this bass. I'm getting back into it after a 4 year break and my fingers sure are weak.

    If it were mine I'd take it to a pro. I made the mistake of trying to budge and then adjust the rod on one of my first guitars and it wasn't pretty. But you might be more handy than I was? Nice bass! Amazing all the great amps and instruments Peavey has designed and marketed. Good luck with building up your hand strength. Might take a while but you'll get there and having fun all the way.

    IMG_4321.jpg IMG_4323.jpg IMG_4319.jpg Hi Here is a guitar that I finished for a Christmas gift. The top is black walnut and the back of the body is mountain ash. Both woods are from the Adirondacks. The body is a Tele, but the neck is a Strat neck. It sounds great, but it is heavy. I did not pocket the body.

    Man, you folks have some nice guitars!

    Here's an interesting one that I just added to my not so expensive guitar collection.

    Route 101 Rincon. I can't find a lot of info on it. The company was in Ventura California and made guitars in the late '90s the went out of business in '03 due to disagreements among the partners. That's really all I know.

    It's really well made and plays beautifully. It has a sweet fat sound, a little thicker than most Fenders. It came with a matching hard case with the logo on it. A fun guitar for what I paid for it. :)
