howdy jason--apologise fer how long it took me ta get back to ya about yer comment on the oEs licence plate build. i made a frame of old walnut and that is what looks like the masonite-------- haaaaaaaaaa it just occured to me why ya asked about the masonite. thanks fer the comment--i used a piece of 1/4 basswood fer the back it was exactly 3x24 when i got it and one cut down the center made it 6x12 exactly the size fer the frame back. the license plate is aluminum and decided to see if i could put a can in it and it gave it a lil more tone it seems. the screws is something i do often and once ya get all them screws in place it makes everything nice and sturdy yep--thanks again jason.
Hey Jason, I caught a Dan Stevens gig at the Elk Creek Cafe in Mllheim ,Pa about two weeks back. (micro brew cafe three miles from my place) I believe he was using your green telephone mike and CBG with the rubber banded on pickup. "Studio" Stu with his amazing bass was with him and a fantastic blues harp player whose name I've forgotten. The whole show was great. Your guitar sounds and looks incredible.
hello jason,i just stopped by to answer yer questions about the motherboard guitar. first - it is an older matrix motherboard from the early 90,s---i had a friend in texas give me about 10 old computers that were damaged and obsolete.i made several tele and strat pickguards with the motherboards.i had one left that i saved when this build came about. i didnt cut the size of it at all i just made a frame to fit it. second answer is yes i sanded it to the condition you see,then used 0000 steel wool to rub it out with. last answer is 2 parts--i did not unsolder the components to take them off---- what i did do was to very-very-very carefully use a half inch chisel that was very-very-very sharp to remove the components on this motherboard. was a neat trick that saved lots of time in the removal process. it takes a lot of patience to do what i did and i got hand cramps in the process---but i walked away as soon as the cramps showed because i use all my fingers to play guitar and i did not want to lose any of them. i walked back to it when my fingers were ready to cut more components off. take care and if you try this process i used be very cautious of how sharp a chisel can be. talk with ya later jason.
