hey, i'm really getting bored of the stuff i have(i know, i know, i just got a new guitar) but i wanna expand my collection to atleat 10 or more guitars. will take some work.

anywho, so, i'm just wondering if you guys know any companies that sell different parts of their bodies, or better yet, sell body blanks, or Kits. dont exactly know what i'm talking about? here:

KnE Guitars sells different kinds of bodies that you can modify yourself. and they are pretty cheap at about 120 USD per body!:
http://kneguitars.com/bod_list.php

and what i REALLY wanna get my hands on are these guys. they go by the name of Abstract Guitars. and for somereason are only sold out of Ed Roman's out of i think California, USA. but these body blanks are fairly cheap at 300. i say that that is cheap considering how unique some of their bodies are, take a look:
http://www.edromanguitars.com/newsi.../bodyblanks.htm


EDIT: i just got a price quote from Mitch over at KnE guitars for a neckthrough RR-VEE body guitar with 2 hums, floyd rose, locking nut, and ebony fret board(no inlay). so just a blank body for 450-500. i think that that is decent. but would like it if some other company was cheaper and did the same work....

any other there that you know of?

ontop of that, ed roman is a piece of shit. He will lie, upcharge you, claim he undercharged you for something, and then deny you posession until you slide him the extra 200$. This even goes for fucking repairs! He is in all essence, a piece of shit. I would be elated if i woke up one day and found out his shop burned down with him in it.
His luthiers are all shitty, so all the guitars that are "hand made in my shop" are also peices of shit.
Dont support a piece of shit contructing other pieces of shit.

If you want to know what i mean, just read reviews about Ed Roman on harmony central.

hmm, those KnE look alright, what was the thing you got a price for? just a body with a neck glued in unfinished and with no hardware?

yeah, a neck thru guitar, with alder wings, and perhaps a mahagony middle, or hard maple(still thinking it over) with an ebony fret borad with no inlays(just those lil dots on the side of the fret board), and the gutiar be equipped for a floyd rose bridge, 2 humbuckers.

but yeah, its just a blank, no hardware, no paint, no nothing. the guitar wouldnt have a finish either


and ed romans sucks? really? pitty, coz i think some of their guitars look pretty cool. their head stocks are cool as well.

i know how to paint a bolt on body. like, put some sort of hanger into the screw hole, and start painting....

but i'm trying to figure out how i'd do that with a neckthru. i mean, the fret board is attached to it, so do i put some sort of tape on the fret board? wouldnt that mess up the fret board? plus, how are we to paint a headstock on a neckthru? same concept? just have the fret board taped?

but yeah, i'll get the blank either this summer, or next, depending on how bored i am, and whats my financial statas...

would be fun

i just got another price quote from these guys:
www.divebombinc.com/

i think the guy's name is Dan. but he said taht for an alder wings, hard maple neck, ebony fret board, rhoads body,neckthrough construction etc etc...it will come to being 350!!!!!!!!!!! YES! 3 FUCKING 50 dollars!

he is also selling original floyd rose for 160 for chrome, 170 for black, and 180 for gold. now i dont know if thats the price for their floyd rose original, or floyd rose PRO. i think i rather go for the FR-PRO coz of its spacing being slightly narrorer.

i just might ask him to do my guitar. but i gotta see his work first. and there is absolutly no reviews about him, so i dont know if i can trust him. but 350 dollars is nothing too big, so its not too bad.

just tape off everything you dont want painted. tape wont hurt your woods, i use it all the time on fretboard when polishing frets.

to bad its an unclea rpicture it lokos kidna greyish to me lol, probaly is the picture..

mahogany is always a trouble to get imo, theirs 50 different mahogany species and the specie you would want for guitars is endangered and hasnt been harvested for the last (atleast) 15 years.


not saying any other mahogany specie would make a bad guitar though.

LOl here comes the fun,

and how do you know for sure its honduras?? like i sayd theres (atleast) 50 species of mahogany, you try and get the right one, and if they sell you sumtin as honduras doesnt mean its honduras.. same for swamp ash, most forums about guitarbuilding i see people that think they have a nice piece of swamp ash, but they all have regular ash..

not saying you dont have honduras mahony at all, i realy cant tell by the picture, real honduras mahogany is licht orange, and licht weight compared to other species, though sipo mahogany is sortof orangy aswell. so alot of people get sortof erippedof cuz thers other specie sof mahogany that looks like it, specialy if youv never seen real honduras right nezxt to other mahoganies.

my master has some real honduras wich i compared to the mahogany body that was sold to me year ago as honduras mahogany, and my body is most definatly NOT honduras.
