Ok, so i got a new laptop and deviantart kinda dropped off my radar because hey let's face it, 90% of it is tweenage girls/porn/twilight slash fiction/a combination of all of these (my keyboard feels dirty just typing that) but anyways.
THE JUICY NEWS!
I've started a new custom guitar for myself to celebrate an unconditional offer from London Metropolitan University to study BSc Musical Instruments (making and learning about acoustic guitars). so that was a combo of news. for £140 i got a 1 peice Cuban Mahogany body blank and a bookmatched Zebrano top, all planed to thickness. so far i've attached the top, cut the body to shape, sanded and smoothed the faces, routed out the Floyd Rose cavity (yeah thats right, Floyd Rose) and the pickup and neck cavities. next on the to do list is route the electrical cavity which requires me to make a template, then contouring the back to make it light and comfortable. after that i'm needing the bursary fairy to buy me some Bareknuckle Aftermaths or perhaps a set of Black Hawks and all the electrickery. then it's just finishing. the neck i'm recycling from my first guitar, except i've re-profiled it for a d-shape shred style neck, and am going to re-lacquer it and paint the headstock with my own logo (branding ftw). Pics to come.
also, i've given up on the Ibanez again. respraying it was costing too much for a guitar that isn't ever going to be top shelf. maybe i'll pick it up when i've run out of things to drink at uni
annd also over christmas, i made my darling lady love Elise a set of earrings to match her pendant, more pics to follow
