  • NGD. Incoming build

    Dang it couldn't stand it
    I wanted a Gibson Modern Double cut soooooo bad

    I contacted my Asian friend
    And they will build me one
    With some modifications

    Here's a link to the build

    US $410 | Customized body and headstock shape 6 string electric guitar solid body,red back,korea locking tuners,ebony fingerboard,own logo
    https://s.click.aliexpress.com/e/bCR1z3sy


    So I get the body shape
    With the Sterling color that's not available anywhere here in the US

    Also get black binding and stainless steel frets

    I get my custom headstock shape with my Ehdwuld logo

    Ebony fretboard
    Tummy cut

    Small hole under the bridge to route the piezo bridge back to the control cavity

    Slim taper neck shape

    I don't need another guitar
    I dont have room for another

    I will feel ashamed for about a month or two till it shows up

    Neat, I enjoy watching your builds progress. You got any tricky wiring in store for it?
    If I only had a dollar for every song I've sung
    every time I had to play while people sat there drunk,

      Nah
      Just gonna put in a piezo bridge like I put on my semihollow Ehdwuld
      Should be able to match the controls as well

      Maybe try out some of the other pickups I have scattered about

      Everything has the JB/JAZZ set
      I have some Chinese JB/JAZZ similar style pickups I had picked up last year

      I'm gonna give them a try . If the installed set dont sound good

          I'm still sorting out the pot size for the volume pot for my piezo bridge

          I have a 250 x 250 k stacked concentric pot
          I am gonna try for the volume tone

          I read somewhere that the piezo needs a 25 ohm volume

          I dont know

              They did
              Years ago

              Like in 2016

              But not with acoustic bridges
              Or some of my own mods

              The color "Sterling " is available at Dawsons I the UK for 2000 euro whatever that translates to plus shipping

              I want something very similar

              My friends in Asia will make me something similar
              I may have to put my own electronics in

              But they promised locking tuners that I spec'd out
              And stainless frets
              And black binding

              Oh and I think I want the transparent cherry back and neck
              Instead of the natural finish I originally asked for
              Its early , I can still change it
              What do yall think

                  That is going to be sweet. I think I would go cherry on the neck and back as well.

                      This is what I'm thinking
                      I have two stacked concentric pots
                      One with both pots 250k
                      One with both pots 500k

                      So what I'm gonna do is add the 250 one to my current Ehdwuld semihollow
                      As the V/T for the piezo

                      If it works out then I will replace the two current knobs with the stacked ones

                      That way I don't drill more holes in my treasured instrument

                      If this gives me what I want then I will repeat on the new one when it gets here

                            Ok on the piezo

                            I'm having trouble separating the tone control on the piezo from the magnetic pickups

                            I may have to go with a master tone and two volumes

                            On the volumes, I will probably scrape off the end of one of the wafer on the pots
                            This will open the circuit instead of shorting it
                            Which should turn it off without both volumes being able to turn it off

                            I dont know how else to separate the two volumes

                            Anyone got a trick for this
                            I think there is one for the two volume/two tone on an LP
                            But I dont know what that is
