TRULY Custom Build


Recommended Posts

As long as it flutters he'll be happy. With one single string and one spring it should flutter like hell. It might never stop fluttering

Funny things is, that's a great litmus test as to a Floyd's performance capabilities. I've never played a poorly performing Floyd that fluttered. If it flutters, then I know it's well installed and properly set up to do all that a Floyd should do.

Holy shit, he's making great progress!

Burrito Build Blog page 2

Just watching. Did he turn a neck through into set neck?? I would break the idea given's knees.

Hi Gorch. This is neck through. What looks here like the end of the neck is merely a step-down at the end where the fretboard sits to allow for the maple top to slot in around the fretboard.

The top is 1/4" thick and once in place here the maple top will be flush with the end of the "neck" where the fretboard ends.

Gosh. And I thought I had to buy tickets and import a MIK baseball stick to break ... Whatever, it looks very very promising. Can't wait to see the result.

LOL. I wish I had some idea what this means. Is it Klingon or something?

Gorch is one of our members from across the big pond. Germany, to be precise. Occasionally, we have minor lost-in-translation language differences. I believe he was joking about buying airline tickets and bringing a made in Korea baseball bat to break the knee caps of the person who suggested turning a neck-thru into a set-neck. :lol:

But wait! There's MORE!

Since the Burrito is getting a badass figured maple top and bending 1/4" thick quilted maple ain't all that easy, Chris purchased this badass vacuum system to help shape the top to the contours of the alder underneath:

Jim occasionally has internet dysfunctions :)

This is what he was trying to post...

That's what happens when you try to pull an image directly from a lousy bit of email service and post it here. ;):lol:

Can we have a peek at the top now that it's on the guitar ;) . You can see it a bit through the vacuum. This is gonna be an epic build - that top is fucking insane!

I have to clean it up and route off the edges of the top flush with the sides yet. I'm sure Jim will post more as I send him pix. I'll be updating him tomorrow with new pix. I just clamped the top today and it came out of the bag only 30 minutes ago

Wouldn’t it be great if diablo goes to pick up his finished, “El Burro”, only to discover it has a 5-way blade switch? Ta-HAhahahahaha, oh, it is to laugh!

(the builder mistakingly makes it 24.75" scale) :ph34r::ph34r::D
