The name of this guitar is H.I.M...His Imperial Majesty. I've always loved Strats, but the 21 fret thing is something I cannot live with unless it's a slide guitar, and then I will cram every inch of that pickup space with p90, Hershey bar, gold foil and and a supro lap steel,..and probably a high gain rail humbucker for the occasional Yngwie twiddle. So this guitar is kinda what I always wanted out of a 24 fret guitar that wasn't full of whimsy and 80s glam metal. Pure statesman meets modern day awesome. Scalloped fretboard, 24 super jumbo gold jescar fretwire. This guitar is pure Amethyst, gold and brass appointments. Haven't decided the scale yet really, though likely 25.5 tuned A TO A and Standard tuning for the middle 6. What I love about building one piece is how little waste there is. I easily have enough to build another guitar body or even a lap steel out of the remainder. Plus enough scrap to make inlays, knobs... Trees don't grow from trees ya know... Part of my faith, without trying to be to religious here, is the sense of stewardship I think life as a human being requires. So I buy large behemoths of wood and turn them in to guitar like objects in various states of non completion. Even the saw dust in this case will be saved and combined with epoxy to create blocks to carve later. Today is about sanding the top back and outer perimeter to see what I'm dealing with as far as wood beauty. Just a little cleaning up of the lines. I have a karaoke gig tonight so those of you local stop on down and let's share in a few pints. 10 bux a pitcher of shiner bock. Pm me for details.
