  • My other Big Beard Guitar

    Pics of my first custom:





    One of the back of the guitar too:

    sorry guys!!!




    we were a little frisky the other evening, and she offered to pose with my guitars. I should have got the old strat out of the case too, but by the end of the photo shoot, we were both pretty drunk and tired!!!

    So about the guitar. This is a Carvin neck through neck with maple wings and some walnut inlays. Only finish on it is Johnson's paste wax and a little stain around the outside rim and the back of the neck. It has old Dimarzio Brian May pickups wired in series, with three on/off/on switches. TRS effects loop before the volume, which is bypassable. 25" scale, sperzel lockers ebony fretboard. It started it's life off as the shape of a Yamaha Weddington, then I decided to rebuild the entire guitar. I have a spot for a preamp and a control cavity that more resembles an inground swimming pool than a hole for pots and switches.

    This one is the ongoing experiment with guitar concepts that I think of. If I have an idea, I try it with this guitar first, before I do anything else to another guitar.

    How does it sound? Not like the red special. Close, which was what I was going for. It Emulates the red special, but it doesn't copy it.

    That's all I can think of at the moment. After I get some sleep, I'll put up more specs if I can remember them!!!

    Comments on the guitar, please!!!! I know my wife is hot, so you can be tasteful about compliments on her!!

    Jeez I just realized that I need to put up pics of my reworked 'ugliest bass in america' rondo music special bass. that is a frankenstein with a wicked 3rd fret buzz that I cannot get out. Someday soon I'm going to refret it. But it hit every branch on the ugly tree on the way down, I tossed it together with junk I had laying around my shop and a SX rondo bass. I really don't like playing the bass at all, so I never touch it, kinda just sits here and collects dust, and looks ugly. I did make wood pickup covers for it but it is another thread on it's own.

        well buddy do you have any idea how hard it was to take those pics without getting a nip slip or some of the 'kitty' in the pics.

        Believe me bro there are a bunch of pics for me only!!!!

        We had a lot of fun doing this, we thought y'all might like some of these pics!!!

        Anybody else have an adventerous wife or girlfriend that will pose with your guitars?

        She thought it was really hot that I wanted her to pose with them!!!

        I guess I should take that as a compliment?!?!

                    Jeez bro I didn't even know I was supposed to change strings in the first place!!!

                    It's funny you say that because I just changed the strings on the WGD yesterday for the first time!!! I'm really bad about changing strings, unless I break them. Probably one of the worst guitar players of all time about changing my strings

                    The strings on this guitar are pretty new (well nevermind the picture!!!) I barely play that guitar, and I changed them about a month ago. Why didn't I change them both at the same time you ask? Because I had exactly $4 cash on me at the music shop and this guitar had a broken B string, so it got the strings first.

                    I guess I'm so bad about string changes because I really check the intonation when I change them. I make it a really tedious process that I honestly would prefer multiple root canals than changing guitar strings. I'm obsessed with intonation!!!! I once wasted 2 hours of rehersal time in my old band messing with the rhythm guitar players bridge to get his G perfect. He switched from plain to wound and for some reason that fucking epiphone cheapo LP would not intonate. I almost went Pete Townshend on it, seriously. But I digress

                    Butt.........seriously bro, i'm sure you'd much rather the guitar not be there at all...I still gotta keep it PG-13 somewhat....and she says no nakey unless I win a guitar of the month.

                    What do you think the guys over on the turtle forum are gonna do when I post up that pic of her with the WGD? I don't know if I'll post it early or late. I bet they delete it...The mods are being real pricks over there with me. They really don't like me over there, and frankly I don't care. I'm sort of under the radar with my 'new' name, at least with the mods. Most of the members know it's me. Anyway I don't know about that forum anymore honestly. But I would love to see my guitar on the homepage, but honestly I don't think it'll happen over there.... That GOTM poll over there is bullshit politics vote for your buddy crap. It really has nothing to do with the guitar, at least that's what I think. I hope this one isn't like that........

                    I don't know, we shall see

                            Olav's post she liked, it had her giggling


                            And thank you Olav for removing the picture from your quoted text. We really appreciate that.

                            Thanks for the compliments and thanks for being a gentleman. You said more by not saying anything!! That is how you compliment a naked woman holding a guitar, not saying you would 'wreck' it!!

                            we really appreciate you taking it down bud. Thanks again.

                              Yes, it was very disrespectful that I never mentioned your wife in my post or demanded more pics of whatever was being shown off in the pics. And I certainly found it respectful to be called a two-pump chump in response. Haha, are you kidding me? Everyone can be mad at me then, so be it.

                              P.S. Ultimately, I apologize that you were so offended. My intension was just to have fun like everyone else, and I expected you to respond with pride and not derision. Had I known you would be so offended, I wouldn't have taken the 5 seconds to post that message.
