Wolf Inspired Project

Postby milobender » Mon Oct 27, 2008 8:34 pm

:smile: I finally got some serious time to spend, and got a good start on a Wolf inspired neck-thru design... :smile: Here are some pics of the body blank and neck. The plan includes the basic Wolf electronics, using one of Waldo's UGBs, if he still makes them :cool: and homemade pups. I just scored a used-yet-unused Mini-Milling machine to make the bridge and tailpiece :cool: I may include another onboard Tube Screamer too, I like the one I'm using quite a bit... :smile:

(edit) I forgot to mention what it's made of :D

Center is Jatoba (Brazilian Cherry), Walnut 1/14"(2@1/28th"), Quilted Maple, Walnut 1/28", American Cherry, Walnut 1/28", and Quilted Maple front and back. :D

:cool: Yeah, it's a totally cool piece of wood (top) isn't it... you gotta love it.

TJ, I'm gonna have 3 on each side tuners... I didn't include a photo of the peg head yet, because I'm still working on the design... I want it to be something new :D As soon as it's decided, I'll post another pic.

But Wolf used a Stratoblaster, not a UGB, right Waldo?

Thanks Waldo, and TS, I'm afraid I get a little sloppy when refering to different editions of electronics :x

I've been making my own Stratoblasters, and I like the Waldo mods (tho on the next one I'll use an inverse curve for the control pot). I've got one in my backup Strat clone. But I really like the detail I get with Waldo's UGB... :cool: Combined with the onboard TubeScreamer it gets close to the best of both worlds (with an extra kick at the higher distortion end). I still need to do some mods to the Tube Screamer... it needs a bit more "clean" area on the amount of distortion control, and it's considerably louder than the UGB alone, so I have to adjust the volume pot whenever I switch the TS on or off :-?

Anyway, I also have a CB2 from CAE, I may try that one first, just to compare, but I'm sold on Waldo's "secret recipe" :cool: :smile:

I guess the bottom line for me is: no Garcia guitar "clones" for me... rather "inspired" editions and variations on a theme! :smile:

Just sent Doug at Soulmate an email about a neck. Looks like I'm in business, this project will be moving forward sooner than I thought. Which is nice.

Well I finally, after a mere 15 month hiatus, have gotten back to working on this one! :D Here's a pic of a cutout, just oiled, and dryed, so it doesn't have the depth it will, but it will give an idea.

I'll put some of the roughed body etc... in a bit... just wanted to show some movement!
