**The Official Guitar Thread**

Recommended Posts

Is there actual guitar discussion in this thread anymore? 

Been playing again since January, only friend locally who plays is extremely good and plays in jazz bands.  I'm to embarrassed to play around the guy.

Theres the odd reply here and there. When i started the only people sround me were pros and i felt too embarassed, but everyone  has to start somewhere, and having having experts around can be a huge benefit for you

The only person I've ever forced Tool on is my wife, but I didn't even have to push hard

Cool. I post here from my tablet, but the pics are on my phone. Actually not sure how to post pics on a forum from either device. My phone is an old ****ty windows 10 phone (I think it spies on me the least). My tablet is on android.

Lol. @Eclipse76 is the fora expert on posting pictures from multiple devices. 

What do you play? And do you make guitars as a hobby or for a living? Either is pretty awesome!

Lol im just getting old and bitter seeing something that used to be subversive and counterculture become mainstream with a huge and vocal fanbase. Im also getting disillusioned with fandom culture and the never ending critical analysis of art in general, and the unfair weight of expectation it brings. 

When i was back in school there was a couple of nerdy guys in every year that would spend hours in these pretentious heated debates about whatever it was they were obsessed with, endlessly shouting over each other about how x was better than y and could beat them in a fight etc. Lol Now anytime i go on the internet to look up anything i enjoy all the discussion has become exactly the same as those arguments.

My news feeds have just been saturated with tool news the past few weeks as it reaches fever pitch, and im just a bit worn out lol

Ok cool, I figured it out.

This is Thrall, the first guitar I made when I was 18. I had a dream about it one night, woke up, drew the image in the middle of the night so I wouldn't forget, then started making it the next day. I had no prior knowledge of how to build it, just researched everything and didn't cut corners.

Plays fine, but obviously a bit big. Still metal as fck though. I mean, how many other people can honestly say their guitar wears socks? That's fcking great, if you ask me.

Here's the second one I made. Kogeki. 24 fret solid ebony neck with gold fret wire on this bastard. Strings go through the body like a tele. The snake was actually stencilled around a real snake, my old pet Evil. Also note my AV and the headstock logo 😉

I made excuses for years that I couldn't play certain stuff because of my tiny woman hands.  Then I saw a YouTube channel with a 16-year-old girl absolutely murdering difficult songs and solos.  Just takes practice to develop muscle memory.

I've been playing again since January and my left wrist has developed to the point where I had to get a link added back to my watch.

Same, only due to excess masturbating.

Chit, just found this thread. I make guitars. I'll dig out some pics.

What type of wood do you use for the main/string sections ?

Honestly,  I think every guitar I have made is different woods. I've used maple, mahogany,  koa, swamp ash, American ash, ebony, rosewood, alder, and a couple of really exotic ones that I can't remember offhand.

I do need a new Zakk Wylde Bullseye ... hint, hint - nudge,nudge -

Honestly,  it's probably cheaper to just buy one than make one. Wood is ridic expensive these days.

10-12 yrs ago, the Gibson version was 5700/usd, the Epiphone wasn't cheap either -
