Here he is!!! (my charvel is done and he's called Jake)

Postby timstar » Tue Aug 15, 2006 1:30 am

He's finally finished.

I know there are a few issues like logo placement slightly out, no slanted singles (which I might change at a later date), no pearl buttons, but this guitar sounds and plays like an angel.

Enjoy! (I am, lol!)

One thing, does anyone on here have any contact with Jake himself? I was wondering if I could get my back plate signed to give it more mojo??!?!?

I think Deansolo is the only one here that
is in contact with Jake every now and then. Check with him.

I just checked out the link to the guitar before it got white,
and I looked through the specs ... Laminated hardwood sounds
... cheap :roll: but hey, as long as your happy with it :D

now, if you decide to do something closer to the real deal
in the future, I suggest that you look on eBay for
Swamp Ash bodied Strats ... they can be really cheap :D

Thanks for all the comments people!

Metalhead, I agree with your points and yes the guitar does sound a little thin compared to say a Les Paul, but I cranked it last night for the first time through my 100watt Hiwatt and it cuts really well and does sound pretty damn good.

If I get anothe grand I'll start a "proper" project but for now this'll do.

cheers

Yeah, humbuckers through cranked tube-amps tend
to sound great :D ... but I'm a SS man myself 8)
