New through-neck addition to the family
I made a tribute build to the Bailey exotica at The Bailey workshop.
That is top notch Deej, you are very skilled. I am having a practice run at a through-neck but just hardtail for now. I have never done it before and I also haven’t done a Floyd Rose before but I’ll leave that for another day.
Carpe Diem and build your dreams
@mikeyrjiom many thanks....not sure yet. I am hoping to get back into building after 18 months off due to work commitments.
I’m possibly going to finish off my acoustic build and finish off a Tele thinline I started a while back..
Off the back of the workshop course (4 years ago now 😮 ) I have been trying to be quietly productive and after checking out the Exotica on the Bailey site, I decided I had to try a neck through. I also never tried a floyd rose before so I decided to take two bites at once.
I'm going to add pictures as soon as I work out how .. the "attach files" button isn't present here or on any other browser I try .. any ideas anyone?
Hello there Ben,
I'd still like to see your pictures if you are able to upload them.
I was hoping to try an Exotica build for my 2021 visit to the Bailey workshop until the 335 rumours started - would have done a SSH Super Strat pickup config, poss EMGs......
Otherwise I will have to try one here at home 😎
Sod it - make tea!
@russ Looks like I can attach pictures now, nice one Mark!
This is it - it's a nod to the Peavey Wolfgang EVH but neck-through instead of bolt-on.
Spec-wise it's a cherry-maple-cherry laminate with a wenge fretboard, ambrosia maple cap and something unknown for the sides but which looks nice when oiled
I always wanted to have a Floyd rose guitar; now I have one I don't think I want another but fun all the same and gave me something different to build!
The inlay on the 12th and 24th frets are inlaid aluminium tubing filled with dust and epoxy.
It turned out a bit thin and I think the thickness between the bridge pickup and trem cavity is just over 2.5 mm; I had to do some creative pickup wiring too - through the trem cavity and then into the control cavity but hey it works and who looks inside the trem cavity anyway ... 😎
