Complete – stock electronics, new neck, licensed floyd rose with brass sustain block, black strap buttons and neck plate.
The next guitar project – the world is full of boring V guitars. I want a natural finish V, but not just an average-looking Rhoads. And this is different from most guitars – there are no curves – just angles.
I don’t name things I own, ever… but this design reminded me of a wolf howling. So, as one does, I followed words on Thesaurus.com and decided to name it Clamor.
The parts are in the mail – will go with Miracle Man by Bareknuckle Pickups.
This was donated to me by my good friend Tim, in a state of disrepair and, in my opinion, ugliness. He wanted it to go to a good home, and since it was in fact a stolen guitar at some point, luthiers were hesitant to fix it for him.
So begins the transformation. New neck arrived today.
- Licensed Floyd Rose in black with after-market brass sustain block
- Black machine heads
- New 42mm nut (the neck came with a reverse nut. I know, what the sh!t is up with that)
- Fretboard inlay “tree of life” stickers
- New knobs already added
- 17-80 strings tuned to Drop A# as per the House of Pines standards of string tension exorbitancy
- Let’s hope the pickups are sufficiently metal already, because I’m seriously running out of money with all these projects on the go
Body – softwood from eBay coated in a clear polyurethane stain
Bridge – Hipshot
Pickups – Seymour Duncan
Graphite and copper shielded
