New build. Good potential Bobby guitar.

New build. Good potential Bobby guitar.

Postby ac4468 » Mon Jun 27, 2016 10:22 am

This is a guitar I completed a few months back that while not really Jerry inspired it takes a few cues Bobby’s 2681 such as the German carve. It’s solid Limba (Korina for you Gibson fans) with mahogany in the neck laminate. This ones loaded with SD Antiquity’s. I was going for light and this one came in at about 6lb 10oz. I had no real appreciation for how heavy my Wolf was until I finished this one. It’s basically the same dimensions and scale as an SG so I can adapt it for an early Garcia or Bobby guitar. I’ll likely make a handful in the fall with both Korina and Mahogany bodies as well as some of the previous design in Wenge, and lacewood if anyone’s interested.

So this is my second version I just completed. It's a much better setup than the last. I have several unrouted bodies so I can try some other configurations like a middle single coil, but I'm really happy with this one as is. The weight of my Wolf didn't bother me until I made my own design based on Tiger that came in under 10lbs. That seemed light as a feather until I finished this one which is the lightest guitar I own at 6lb 14 oz.

24 5/8” Scale
24 Frets
Body: Solid Korina (Limba) German carve with b/w/cream binding.
Neck: 5 Piece laminate Korina / Mahogany
Fingerboard:: Rosewood with cream binding, abalone fret markers and side dots.
Headstock: Walnut top. Walnut/Korina laminated back.

Hardware
Tuning Machines: Grover Deluxe Nickel
Bridge: Kluson Tune-o-matic.
Tailpiece: Kluson

Pickups/Electronics:
Neck Pickup: Dimarzio DP103 36th Anniversary PAF
Bridge Pickup: Dimarzio DP223 36th Anniversary PAF

500k CTS Volume
2 CTS 500K Tone Pots w/.22 Capacitors
Switchcraft 3 way pickup selector (Neck, Combined, Bridge)
3 way mini DPDT switches Series/Split/Parralel for each pickup.
Mini switch Master Series/Parralell
Mini switch Sets pickups out of phase.

Weight: 6lbs 14.3 oz!!!
