Tapestry, How did you get those effects to mount vertical like that? for the guitars, this site is THE place for fine guitars. HOLY CRAP Alcorelectric! You have a MC fetish something fierce, I think they may have a 12 step program for that if it gets worse! Beautiful collection my man... :cool: to all, Peace Jboy

I have a few more of those.

Hey everyone! I LOVE to see that I'm not the only CRAZY JERRY ADDICT that HAD to build his own TIGER!

Here's a few pics of my homebuilt Tiger and a vintage Ibanez "bobby" style guitar. After 15 years playing the tiger, It's time to build another. I'm collecting wood now and will massage the body shape to make it a little 'horny'er". This one's lower boute was based on a LP I had at the time and is a little smaller over all and the horns are smaller and point to the headstock.

25.5" scale. 1.72" nut width. Fat 'C' profile neck almost an acoustic neck really. Pretty high action and 'vintage' frets. Bridge pickup is a SuperIII, middle is a SuperII and Neck is a 'humbucker from hell'. Has a OBEL and Silicon Transitor unity Gain P-amp. Wiring is Standard fender 5way selector with tone pots on middle and bridge. Middle and bridge pickups have coil selectors, that is, one coil or the other. No serial or parallel humbucking available. Neck pickup is serial humbucking ONLY and NO TONE CONTROL.

Body and neck are Rock Maple core. Next one will be Western Big Leaf 'soft' maple as it should be. Laminates are Padauk under Cocobolo top and back and padauk center pc on the neck. I didn't do a lam. of maple veneer between the top and back laminates so it doesn't really show up. Over-all thickness is about 2.125" and 1.625" at the edge. Weighs in at about 12lbs. I would decribe the clean tone as very 'piano like'. When playing with some gain it has a kind of natural wah to the notes. A Bass playing friend of mine calls it 'pitch focus' similar to the way a string bass' notes blossum as they decay. People ask me how I did it and I reply 'I don't know'!

I'm going on VACA so won't be around for a while. When I get back I'll post some sounds.
Will

Tx Stuco!
It's a resurrection tiger, took about 2 years and it was way worth it. It is not exact replica which is a ok with me... Has standard Jer tiger dimarzio's and Waldo's T-Clone (which makes a BIG difference IMHO) Awesome Tiger inlay by Ron Thorn.
It just needed the frets worked on which was not a big deal or expense.

I used some diamond shaped iron that i found in a hardware store. I bent it to fit and attached it to the rails with some wood strips. I have the pedals zip-tied on for easy re-arranging.

You're damn right they count...and if I recall...you built it yourself. Beautiful bass.
And the Resurrection is maybe the prettiest I've seen...but interestingly enough it needed fret work.
