Build treva (6fingers) free guitar thread.

Hi guys. Some of you know about this but here we go. Also i posted this in here because there will be a guitar built to show progress pics as well.

My friend treva lives in brazil and guitars are so out of price range there expecially coming from usa.

He has been wanting a swirl for so long to no evail.

I told him i would make hime one for free and then Alaskabat offered him a neck.

Rgtfanatic offered him a free original edge trem kit.

Then some others offered stuff as well.

So i needed to make an official thread for anyone wanting to help us.

He will make a song and youtube video when he gets it for us all to enjoy what we did.

The guitar will be a jpm hh style body with claw and no grip. swirled with matching headstock .

any parts you want to donate please post here.

Also i would like to offer 1 of these guitars every year for a member who is cool and deserving of it with you guys help.

im sure treva will post some renderings of what it will look like with his photoshop skills lol.

I am putting it together here and shipping finished to him i believe.

This spring i will have the body ready for him .

Thanks to anyone who wants to help a dream come true.

Things needed still.
Pickups. hopefully pink dimarzios.
electronics.
tuners etc.
a good case to ship it in.
knobs.
clear guard to fit. (if not i will).

Im excited and its not even mine lol.
sometimes i used to daydream about someone doing stuff like this for me ,so if i can i will.

my wife and kids help me do this stuff , so its fun for us anyways.

hopefully every year we can hook someone up.

plus who doesn't love a good build thread they were part of?
it would be cool if everyone who donated a part had their name under the back side of the trem cavity plate.

I don't have pink pups. I have black TZ and PafPro available.

Happy to contribute in other ways (Paypal, or I can purchase electronics and send over)

Re: Build treva (6fingers) free guitar thread.

I have 2 pink Dimarzio's Humbuckers from my J custom RG Paint1 that I'm happy to donate.. I think its an Air Norton and a Paf Pro ?? but not 100% sure...

I assume this is a 6 string guitar ??

I have to warn one has about 15cm of wire left, so as long as someone is good at making extension cable, it should still be good. They are in near mint condition, aesthetically..

I got plenty of extra parts, so hit me up with what you need and I can check my box of goodies.. I 100% have a full nice set of Gotoh/Ibanez tuners, so I can also donate that..

Re: Build treva (6fingers) free guitar thread.

Guys I'm speechless.
Don't even know what to say, thanks is not good enough but the only thing I can say is...
THANKS to everybody who is going to help.
THANKS to everybody who will just support this dream with good thoughts.

Guitar parts in USA are so cheap so it's not like we'd asking for a ferrari but still what matters is THE ACT, wanting to help somebody even with only a screw is what matters, remember tomorrow could be you trying to fulfill a dream

THANKS.............THANKS...............THANKS!

Yep there'll be a song and video.
Probably I'll ask to those who helped a pic or a small clip playing guitar(without sound just the scene) to add to my video so at least I think I'll make them happy watching it.

Andrew I hope life will give your act back to you a thousand times, if we all helped somebody to release a dream or something, the world would be a better place for sure.
I help a lot of homeless people with food, clothes etc and I have a girlfriend who is a vet and keep saving animals, she and her vet friends save a lot of animals every year, they treat and find a home to them.If I was rich I'd love helping people with health treatments, cars, houses, medications etc, making somebody happy and seeing that happiness in their eyes is unpayable, you feel like happiness was shaking all your body cells.

Guys if you want a freakish awesome swirl, contact Andrew, his swirls are a must, I always said that so it's not a case of "he's building me a guitar so I'll help him selling them" kind of stuff, he's building me one because I ALWAYS said I love his swirls and if I lived close to him, I'd keep him locked in my basement swirling only for me.......hmm that sounds kinky

THANKS.............THANKS...............THANKS!

BTW as Andrew will give one every year, keep donating to his "Fulfilling Dreams Guitar Parts" box, , even parts my guitar doesn't need or parts we already got, remember those donations could be for your guitar next year, let's spread joy here

Re: Build treva (6fingers) free guitar thread.

se deu bem heim treva hehehe

I gave up buying stuff here in brazil a long time ago, that's why I try to buy my stuff everytime I have the opportunity to travel or if someone is willing to bring me. The basic math when it comes to gear price in brazil is:

US price x 3 = brazilian street price

Anyways congrats on this amazing nice gesture. Been a Jemsiter for over 14 years (yay! the old forum!) and that's the reason I never left - awesome community

Da pra acreditar?! (Can you believe that?)
Onde voce mora? (Where do you live?)
Vai ver somos vizinhos (Maybe we're neighbours)

Sometimes our street price is even more than 3X, people travel and bring mesa boogies to sell, they ask about 4000/6000 dollars for a dual recto head, keep in mind dollar is twice value of our money so 6000 dollars is TOO MUCH for a guitar amp......................AAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHH

Yep some good guys here and that's why I never left too just like I said to some members, I still keep coming here to keep in touch with some cool friends.

Re: Build treva (6fingers) free guitar thread.

hehehe,

to no Tatuape, SP/SP hehe

I'm always in horror when I see people selling an used PRS for about 5K (10k in our brazilian currency) like this one http://alturl.com/a4kwe or a used roadster combo for the same price - like this one http://alturl.com/efg3x

but that's how our economy works, if someone is selling for that price, definately there's a buyer willing to pay for it (even if paid in 12 easy installments hahha)

i'm not in economy and such, but I predict it only will get worse and worse on a near future. The bubble will burst ...

Brazil: the land of taxes and huge profits.

Re: Build treva (6fingers) free guitar thread.

We have similar prices in Australia... possibly we have higher wages then Brazil, so it may balance out, but its still 5k RRP for a brand new standard Jem.... and not many people can afford that.
