    I use Gotoh 2-way truss rods ,and would never consider not using a 2 way ,unless it was for some sort of vintage replica style build

        ChAoZ, I'm impressed by your luthiery skills. That fanned fret 8 looks gorgeous and it's not even done!!!
        Squier Bullet Special or a Squier Partscaster into a ZOOM G1Next into either a Fender Frontman 25R or a Vox Pathfinder 15R.

              Tablet browser glitching cant upload:

              1) ibanez 540s "naturalization": stripped, dyed transparent cherry w/ RIT wine colour (grain highlights courtesy of rusty steel wool w/ darjeeling aka ferrous tannate aka kanemizu), building up a few rounds of BLO
              2) strat with tele neck mutt, neck rescued from epic dumbarses and actually required surgery, including a graft of maple on first fret just off the nut, and refilling a gazillion sloppy headstock holes
              3,4,5) pickup swaps and cosmetics on stuff so itd sell better

                  I am finishing up a build...I think. This guitar seems to never be done. I am putting the black tuners and bridge on my black Tele finally. The headstock was hacked when someone tried to remove the serial number. I cleaned up the headstock before putting on the tuners and drilled it out for the bigger posts. Now I am gently going downstairs about once an our or so to add another thin layer of poly to the headstock. Once I buff that out I will put on the tuners and done. I think.

                      There are times when burl works for me and time when it don't. This is one of those time when it works! Did you make the body?

                          Sure did. Mahogany body. Traced my Peavey Wolfgang Special for a template. Even found a copy neck off eBay with an ebony fretboard.

                                Hello,
                                I built this guitar with my Dad. The stripes are the end grain of alternating layers of plywood. We ripped sheets of oak plywood into strips, then we stacked and glued the strips to make blanks that we cut the neck and body out of. It was our first guitar build, just a fun experiment, so we went cheap with the wood. I took these pics after we tested it and were disassembling to apply a seal.
