JS 2422 Custom handmade

Good evening,

As I have seen some very nice homemade JS-models here, I would not hide and show you my one also.
It was finished last friday on a course for guitarbuilding at Formentera Guitars.
"JS 2422" because i put a 22-fret neck in the bodyshape of the 2400.
Iīd be glad to get some feedback, questions, opinons on it, whatever....

You can watch all the images here: http://yfrog.com/5jcimg5544ajx (hope this works)
Iīll just post some personal highlites

Body: Black Korina
Neck: Bahia
Fingerboard: Rosewood
Neck-PU: handwired HB, 12.000 windings of 0.056-wire
Bridge-PU: 15.000 windings of 0.005 wire, also handwired
Tremolo: Schaller Floyd Rose R3

12th fret-inlay is like the "aligned planets" from the 2000 Crystal Planet model

and ready to rock!!!

The horns aren't right and, though I'm no expert, by glance it looks like the trem is too far back thus not intonated right.

Looks nice! I'm not a huge fan of gold hardware personally, but it looks nice on the guitar. I like that 12th fret inlay too. Nice work!

That course sounds awesome. Maybe one of these years I'll try to do that!

Re: JS 2422 Custom handmade

I am confused. Why make a JS2400 body and not put a 24 fret neck on?

@jimmy:
Well, i resized a picture from the internet to get the 1:1 shape on the wood.
but iīm not a cnc-machine, when it comes to cutting and rasping, so itīs as close as i could make it.

and yeah, the trem is a bit back because of the shorter fingerboard with only 22 frets instead of 24.
but itīs only 2 cm or so, still feels very comfortable when playing.
the benefit is also a 2cm longer neck-body-connection with more sustain and some more pressure in the tone.

@ekim
i just wanted it that way not a straight copy of the 2400

Re: JS 2422 Custom handmade

nice, but what's the bath for? is it healthy for the wood or just to take cool pics?

itīs a traditional ritual at the courses of Formentera Guitars
of course, it looks cool in the water and itīs fun
but the practical reason is to get a smoother surface.
at this point of the making, you already sand the body with 240 or 320 paper.
in the water the outer fibers of the wood are soaking and when dried, the surface is rough again for more sanding, wich makes the surface even smoother. you can repat this 3 or 4 times to improve the result

^Yeah, water raises the grain. You dont really need to soak them though, its possible too much could soak in and potentially cause damage later on, but I guess if they do it often they make sure that doesnt happen.
