Build #2 finished.

It ain't perfect, flaws too numerous, but on the other hand it gives it character and certainly indicates it's hand built. Learned some stuff too.

Gonna try and knock out a '2x4' two string bass from a 60's plan. Got the body rough shaped today.

The baritone (#3) is glued up and the shape being figured out, so a have to ask....

The 'Rock' vid is my dream. I'm going with your info, 29.5 scale, 36 frets wood body. I have a bunch of pickups, and just got 2 p-90's today. I have them, single coils, zebra humbuckers, and a dual rail humbucker, a couple single coils are pre-wired vol and tone. Which do you pick?

Ba ba bad to the bone! Nice job! Post a video, wanna hear it!

Couple of days. Gotta remount the phono jack. Sounds good, but what do I know? My amp isn't the greatest.

I ran it thru these and diddled around, got some interesting sounds. Still looking for Ginormous Crunch, but I think I might pick that up in build #3....a Baritone, 29.5" scale and OAL 40".

Click on the pic a couple times, the Psycho Box is cut off here.

Hi, very tidy work and nice design, well done.

Taff

If you want big crunch, I suggest a distortion pedal with vol.,gain,tone controls & a tube amp? If not , just go for a Big Muff Pi,  plenty of gain on tap(too much) Gilmour uses them with his laps?

It's a little outside my price range, I'm getting ok (untrained ear) sound and am playung around with the Danelectro and Psycho Box. The compressor is getting crunchy too...

try compressor at the beginning of the effects chain. will bring everything up and drive the distortions harder.
