I am really enjoying watching all your hard work evolve!!!
I can hardly call it work though. My back begs to differ and I've sacrificed my right thumb nail a couple weeks ago, the middle about four days ago, and the index yesterday. Ive been working on my flesh technic.
Woke in the middle of the night running through my machine tuner idea. Besides building up the other two Mk-III this will be my next challenge. I'm going to fabricate aluminum frames, engrave, etc... Might try and plate them for a dusky pueter like finish.
Berrals I'll make out of 1/4" aluminium as well but I might make a set out of Corrian material with matching knobs; I'm fond of the varagated yellow myself but see the blue or green color as standing out more. I can also see the frames being annadized black or even red although the triditional gold makes more sense.
I might also provide a ball bearing for the string roller but the whole idea of making these myself is to save weight and use my low profile peg style headstock. I'm aiming for a 1100gm guitar.
Wish I could get the crown and worm gear in titanium... I'll have to look about.
To be honest I prefer the peg tuners but not many have the do.
I hate sanding wood or anything else for that matter I just happen to be good at it...
