Anyone doing new builds on here?

Postby GattonFan » Mon May 30, 2022 7:56 pm

I’d be interested to see any projects anyone may be doing or completed recently. My own projects have slowed down considerably. I think I have parts for maybe 3 Mosrite style guitars but just need to take the time to do them.

Not me, I have retired from building guitars and amps. Ed Elliott and Terry McArthur are still at it unfortunately after this forum died down they moved over to facebook.

Yeah, they did. But those social media platforms just don’t have the information and dialogue that we did on here. Although they definitely are the most popular place to be, this Forum is still a wealth of information.

I've been building amps. I do not build guitars. I'd rather deal with potentially lethal voltages than wood splinters.

Danny did a nice amp build, back in the day, as I recall. Do you still have that amp, Danny?

I built several which one are you referring to? The Bassman I sold to Mel Waldorf along with the 63 double neck Mosrite clone I built. I guess the simple answer is I only have the tweed deluxe. The rest along with the reverb tank are all gone to new owners. Same with the guitars I built, I only kept the candy apple red Mosrite clone. At least I have photo albums of each build. I also sold all the original Mosrite guitars and basses except for the 64, which I kept.

I still have a fantasy of building a doubleneck Celebrity. As far as I know Semie never did one and it would look very cool. I have most of the parts and think it would be a challenge to think it through.

The tweed Deluxe was the one I remembered. Did you also do a reverb tank?
