Yeah man, try to get progress pics, i would be realy fucking interested to see how it goes, also if its your first time wouldnt it be easier just to make a soloist shape? i mean a mock would surely recuire random routing tools for the contours and shit.

anyway may you have the best of luck !!!!!11one

i didnt finish it, cuz the body was to thin to fit a pickup init (i think havent realy tryd lol), also the measures of the body were a little fucked so the total thing looks kinda odd, maybe ill finish it off with some cheapo parts just to see how fanned frets play, i might just be able to fit a emg 81 init or so.. i dno yet though, i have a strat that needs pickups, and i have 2 more projects i wanna start with once the strat is done.

Yeah man, i NEED an ironbird, i was looking on edroman.com (i know he has realy bad internet reputation) but it said on the site that he has numerous old bc rich neck thru body cores, if i could get hold of a neckthrough body ironbird unfinished and unrouted it would be a complete godsend, the more time goes by, the more i need a fucking ironbird

anyone know about these body cores?

cheers

uhm, im not sure what you exactly mean, do you want to build or buy a neckthrough ironbird??


and whats a neckthrough body core?? lol

EDIT... oh wait, you mean you want to buy, a neckthrough ironbird, without any routing done, but the body and neck glued together already? so you just have to rout everything and put it together??

i found 2 pics of the fanned fret thing on some other forum..

i fucked yup the ody by shaping the lower part of the body. and you can see the body is to small compared to the neck, it doesnt look right at all. im thinking of putting some cheapo pickup init and some cheapo machineheads just to try and play it, i might find some 2nd crap stuff in the workshop so i can findout what faned frets play like...

So I have a Randy V shaped guitar with a set-neck that's completly stripped naked. The only things on it is the tuners and the bridge. No nut at all. There original nut wasn't a locking nut.

So my question is...Is it possible to put a locking nut on it? Would there be room? Or should I just trash the project and try to find another guitar?

That is really sharp. You did a very nice job on it. I hope it sounds as good as it looks. Congrats!

just finished the fanned frert guitar today, i found some old tuners, saddles and a old ultra sonic singlecoil sized humbucker i could use. i used some ebony for a nut, and some rosewood for a bridge, basicaly this guitar costed me 10 bux for the fretwire, and about 110 for all the woods...

i got used to playing fanned frets pretty fast realy, its kinda weird for bending cuz the high frets bend realy fast and pretty high, bending 2half notes isnt to hard to do, where on the lower frets its kinda hard to do a half note bend due to the angle.

otherwise its not to bad to play on.

if i had a camera id make some pics, but its butt ugly anyway so your not missing anything haha...

ps its the guitar from a few post above, xept i staned the maple fretboard purple
