My new signature model guitar is about to take the world by storm!
Should be in every major music store in no time!... once they uh... call me back.
In all sincerity though, thanks for watching! It's good to be back :)

Hmm. Not sure about the logic of not knowing what a truss rod was for years, and so then assuming it doesn’t matter. 😀

So you did all that work and then fucked about with frets. Makes no sense. When you stab yourself in the eye you'll regret it. Could have had a decent guitar there...

28:31 to be a little more accurate, the greater the scale length, the more frets it has, but their positions are still in accordance to the fractional values one calculates mathematically. The result is greater scale lengths mean more notes, it's another way of extending an instrument's range besides adding another string entirely.

Should have done a bolt-on neck, you wouldn't have had to wait for glue to dry, and you could have put on a good neck later. The lack of a radius on the neck really got me, I'm surprised it didn't come up in the video.

Other people: Clip the excess strings, you could poke out an eye. Rob: This thing is dangerous. Like Skwisgaar Skwigelf before you, you have redefined the guitar and the term "shredding solos". Loved the timing of this video; I just started building my own cigar-box guitar in preperation for a full-sized electric. Thanks for all you do!

you gotta look at schems for soldering the electrics. eventually you'll get to a point of expertise that all you need is to look for the ground wire, which could be green or black. hot wire bieng red white is probably for the switch and if you have seymor duncans you have five wires why? idk but you can get a quick understanding after a while. oh! by the by, get rosin core soldering its makes pot soldering for the ground wire super easy. make sure to always twist the braid the other stuff is all you

since the daw, plugins and virtual instruments available for free on torrents there has been a revolution so most musicians has home studio, the music creation has been democratized, it doesn't belong anymore to mafias as motown controlling the media and brainwashing the taste of the mass. now you or your neighbour do can actually obtain better recording in your bedroom than, say the viena orchestra poorly recorded as heard on youtube. the sky is the limit. we have access to the knowledgement and the technology so we don't need to fall in love adoring any celebrity anymore because you can do it by yourself, you are same special. then youtube came in in those asholes so-called the guitar community, which are les than hundred people has chosen to become the new celebrities, and they treat the audience as if we were stupid, they force us to swallow the propaganda as if this was the television, they don't have an actual hit good song whatsoever and they are not wise but regular people, as the rest of approximately 100 million musicians those youtubers are targeting. anyone of us could talk about guitars and probably better than them , but we sit and watch without taking action, because we are used to shut up and just sit and watch on school for 15 years. those youtubers are ignorant and they talk us as if they were teachers. they take the ideas from the unpaid people whom chat at them, they are the script writters, and the owner of the genuine idea should be the only whom ethically deserves to be paid, but the grief of youtubers won't share. i already demostrated hundreds times why they are wrong on this and on that, since i am the inventor of the law of harmony so i'm the biggest expert ever on harmony, so i do can correct them, spot their mistakes, do they ever admit were wrong? no. they play dumb. they are selfish egomaniac and they are not searching for the truths in life, they just want to make money. they get more viewers by using gambling "giveaways" which is unethical, and they talk forever about whatever in example wills easy guitar nowadyas nick is dr guitar he talks politics (kukluxklan) more than talking guitars and luthery which was the first hook. then most of them are making an union, as the club bilderberg, some became rich from fraud on thomann and enherited na zi mansion Eytsch43 and they want to control the market of the guitar industry including the entertainment about guitars on internet, in example rob chapman increased popularity with andertons guitar shop which increased its sells to become number one on england, then rob chapman used his popularity in order to make a brand built by children in indonesia and eventually become a millionaire whom left england to live a wealthy lifestyle in macedonia or whatever luxery corner of the earth. they talk forever as 60cyclehum and his friend. he is super ignorant. he will never teach us anything, is the worst guitar teacher ever, he just mocks at ridiculous guitars from a conservative point of view. and they all are completely agressive censors as that australian lefty "intheblues" he accepts no critics. they will deberately skip the questions as the dictator of northkorea, i lived that, Ronquillo is one of them. Adam Nelly never replied when i corrected their harmony.ola englund is the biggest bully, he was super agressive against me a decade ago when i published guitar prototype on facebook. a french youtuber i don't remember the name did a contest where we should invent a melody playing the major scale in one string only. so i did and he never paid nor recognize i won. he was an scam and answered unpolitely. i wrote so many times the arguments why they are wrong, and never i received a thank you. they don't want you to make your own music, they want you under them, inferior, the way bill gates looks at you. so i do i am glad stevie t has been hacked. they will never tell you clearly , hey, get utorrent go to this site idope) and this other link (plugintorrents) so you can get the waves 9 and all those thousands virtual instruments here and there for the daw available here. because they don't want us to success. they want to be the only ones in charge, as centuries ago the church spoke only on the latin nobody could understand, so the priests had control over the mass of the entire medieval village. no way. we are all the same, so youtubers shouldn't earn money.

While I realize a lot of this is a joke, for the future, please start at a drawing board. You do your research. Then do your calculations. Then design it, either on paper or in a CAD software, whichever you choose. Then you review it, and build a prototype. I promise, your design specs will change while building - some things are easier to design than they are to build. Then you test it, see what doesn't work, adjust the design specs, build a second prototype. And so on, until you get what you want :))
