Nicolas LEBLOND: What a clean video...
Really impressive how you got your stuff together man, my questions are
eiclan: mate,as an old machinist ,I can appreciate the work and precision in a
common sense way that you are doing.That flat stone bench is a great idea.I
saw a guy honing transmission valves on such a bench years ago ,great way
to keep stuff flat.You can never have too many jigs. Cheers Ross from
Fidel R.: jigman
Guitar Riffs Drop D Tuning: Great video....
joseph stankiewicz: where are your safety glasses?
sharktroubles: I wish I could commission you to build me a guitar.
jeff wackenthal: Very interesting!!!Thank you!
Alain Rivard: Really enjoy your youtubr channel. But do you do,les,paul kits?
Archie Rodenbo: I just ordered a gibson explorer laser cut template.
Philip Edwards: Enjoyed the video but please, please use push sticks on the router table -
my heart was in my mouth watching you rout! It only takes a millisecond of
kickback to find your fingers hitting the cutter - trust me on this. Also
install a pin on the table so you can safely start the cuts - a pivot pin
makes life much safer!
Keep up the good work :)
Archie Rodenbo: I'm from Michigan to. Great video
Travis Atwell: Sensible foot wear is a key to guitar building I see lol
Paul Simon: Do you sell your jigs? I'm working in an Explorer and I am having trouble
figuring out the neck
Dylan Reynolds: no disrespect intended here, but i will not be glueing a headstock together
haha. I don't care if i have to cut wood away and waste it, I would prefer
all one piece neck. But this is your guitar, not mine ;)
kerry krishna: What a great job you do. Thanks for posting this vid.
Dylan Reynolds: Not much of a wood cutting guy here, but i'm looking up all your tools as I
watch and i think i'm ready to get into the world of cutting bodies and
necks! Planning to put together my own Tele soon, then eventually i'll be
making guitars from a rough piece of wood. Can't wait to start this
venture! Same with engineering effects pedals too!
iListen: I watch this vids and I don't even know how to use a normal saw.
MrShaun1578: Hi making my second guitar first one was a warlock I do like the les Paul
body style and just curious if I wanted to use the body style of a les Paul
but use a recessed Floyd rose do I still have to use a 4 degree neck angle
James Rockford: what does "score the wood" mean? what is that?
johnnypk1963: Big D. Thanks so much for all the vids/info. Fine work on the jigs. Do u
sell your neck jigs? If not how come? I cut my hdstk angles on my miter
saw. Setting the neck of my last guitar I experienced the same prob at glue
up time,it had a very tight neck pocket as well....the heel didnt want to
seat properly. Whats the cause of that?
barnett25: Whenever you change string gauge you will likely need to adjust the truss
rod to keep the neck straight. You want to remove the tension from the
strings, and turn the truss rod 1/4 turn clockwise. Then re-tension the
strings (tune) and check your neck. You can hold down the E string at the
1st fret and the 14th, then look at how much space you have between the
string and the 7th fret. You want a small gap, but not much. Repeat until
it plays well with no fret buzz. Also check your intonation.
Gabriele Ronci: Hi! what a great job! i have a question. Reading some cad project for the
lp 59 i see that the basemant in which the neck will be glue have to be
3.5°..so according to these project how can i saw this angle? considering
that i have a rouler and a jigsaw. any tips? ty best regards gabriele
Tyler Russell: Will you do a body video too?
Trevor Rohwer: thanks for response
leon james: Hi great vids where do u get your templates from?
thebigdguitars: my first les paul was about 8 years ago. I had a tight neck pocket and I
was like this is awesome. I get the glue in the pocket and I try to fit it
down and I freak out... its stuck... I have to grab a c clamp and force it
down. Then its not as close to the body as it need to be so I have to force
down the neck with a clamp jig. Man it was a mess. There is a perfect
balance to get this right.
Trevor Rohwer: when i ask you this im thinking in terms of playability not beautiful
Trevor Rohwer: lookin at getting a tele neck made up for my alder tele body.. i definitely
want a Q-sawn maple neck but dont have a clue as to what the fingerboard
should be, in your experience whats a good tone wood for fingerboard? no
limit in terms of money. at warmoth im lookin at figured ziricote, ebony
(black & madagascar) King wood, bloodwood ect.. any help would be greatly
appreciated, until then ill be sifting through your videos watching ur wood
thebigdguitars: depends on the buzz where is it? its really a fret by fret thing they may
have not adjusted the rod. Also strings may have taken a day or two to
effect the neck, I would take it back to be honest!
Trevor Rohwer: in terms of tone right now, my current guitar i have a 58' reissue tele
from fender; ash body and maple neck & fingerboard, its also very light. i
wanted to create a guitar that was opposite of my 58' tele. basically
opposite in the way of tone AND playability. (i want all the latest
advances to give me better playability. ie:compound radius, for bends,
truss rod access at headstock ect.) basically all the things my 58' dont
have. and yes warmoth has bocote.
thebigdguitars: What tone are you looking for? if you have a maple neck already you are
starting from a bright bass. If you want to mellow it out you can go with
Koa or something figured. If you want really bright then go with ebony or
something exotic like that. I have a kingwood board on a guitar and I love
it. I don't like bloodwood it stains a little. ziricote is actually really
nice, do they have bocote? thats one of my favs
thebigdguitars: in the works!
guitarslf132: Paha! I completely agree with you where the idiots hold the guitar up by
their crazy tight neck pocket
