Guitar for auction in support of forum
« on: October 17, 2016, 12:07:35 PM »
In a month or so I'll start work on a guitar build that once completed will be auctioned off on the forum, with proceeds in support the forum.  Kudos to forum member hackbarry Jake, as he has born the major piece of the cost (sent me a pile of great looking Osage Orange). It'll take a year or so to finish this off, mostly evenings, a few minutes here, a few minutes there.

So I'll end up putting in around 120 hours of my time.  Jake has supplied me with a number of Osage guitar sets, so that's my payment.  There is an opportunity for others who what to contribute to the build.  I will need wood for the neck, and tuning machines.  Suitable neck wood is high grade quarter sawn Cherry or Walnut.  The tuners I would suggest are good quality Gotoh.  Other than that, I would suggest a decent guitar case.  Electronics are also an option. Shipping cost with be around $100, so we'll need to decide who pays for that. 

I'll build a guitar loosely based on the Martin D28.  The soundboard will be Spuce (likely Lutz), the back and sides will be Osage Orange.  Binding will be curly Maple with herringbone purfling.

So how to go about this:

I'd suggest I build the guitar, posting pics of the progress.  Once completed I'll get some clips with a pro player doing a demo and commenting on it.  Then auction.

For neck wood:  Quartersawn with no knots, faults, or twists.  36" length x 3" width x 1" thickness will give you the neck in drawing #3.  Would be great to avoid having to laminate the heel, but that would require a 3" thick block (drawing #2).




The quartersawn grain should be running up and down, not across.

Finally finished off a guitar I've been building for my uncle. D28 style bracing, with Indian Rosewood back and bearclaw Lutz top, herringbone perfling and curly Maple binding. The finish on there is a product called Royal Lac, which is shellac with a added hardener.

I'll get started on the auction guitar shortly.

Hey guys, it's over a year later but I've started the build.  Sides are bent, back joined, top joined and rosette installed.  I'll be gluing up the back this month and the top next month.  Expect to be done towards the end of June. 

I know this has been delayed for years at a time, but this time it'll get done.  Reason being I'm teaching a high school guitar building course where all the students build their own acoustic guitar.  The guitar I'm putting together will be the auction guitar.

I have a Banjo.  Can't play it and it doesn't even have strings, but I have one.  Has Wizard written on it so I guess that it is a Wizard Banjo.  It hangs on the wall at the Cabin so I guess that it is a Cabin Wizard Banjo.  ;D

I don't have a Guitar.  Can't play one, but I guess that I will bid on this one.  I could hang it...........    :)

I have a couple of wall hangers myself, but you can play em if you want to.  The ole banjo belonged to my mothers uncle...his grand daughter gave it to me.  The hanger guitar was given to me by a dear friend.  I also got players  8)  Debbie has a mandolin and 2 upright bases.  I think I have 4 fiddles, one is going to my grand daughter when she gets old enough to take care of it.  Banjo

An old banjo / fiddle player from around here will tell banjo jokes in between songs.

A couple of them are "perfect pitch is when you can throw a banjo and hit an accordion"

What is the difference between a banjo and a trampoline.... you take off your shoes before you jump on a trampoline.

Glad you got your mill going again!

  Not trying to hijack. Banjo picker, do you play Scruggs or Clawhammer? I have learned Cripple Creek and love the banjo now. The jokes are really funny. I have heard quite a bit and laugh every time, I would love to hear more. I would love to bid on that guitar but knowing the time effort and craftsmanship going in to it I cannot right now. Just a thought, we usually auction a gun off for our Lodge. We get raffle tickets made and then a lot of folks can get 100 dollars worth (or much less ) and still have a chance to win it.

I also like the idea of the raffle, I've seen many fundraisers around here that do much better on free will offerings than other types but auctions are fun too.  I don't play guitar and as was already stated couldn't afford one with that kind of craftsmanship but wouldn't mind buying in on a chance to win it.  Doesn't matter but I'll stay tuned.

A raffle can only be conducted by a registered charitable organization in MS.  Don't know about anywhere else.  Goat butts are free so I guess that is charitable enough in SC.

 I am on the clawhammer style, the OT (old time ) music.  MM, being that I am from Mississippi, being Charitable AND a Registered Voter ;), would that make the raffle legal?

 I doubt I'd be able to bid on it but if it we're to be raffled off I would certainly be interested in buying tickets  8)

 I play guitar a little as well as my brother. I just like playing along with songs by ear mostly, fun hobby.

Michigan laws makes it prohibitive on a raffle because of it being a form of gambling. Way to many fiery hoops to jump through to do it

   Roger that. Sorry I brought it up, I should have thought about that I guess. It never crossed my mind as to being a legal issue.

Or mine as well, I think it could have made a tremendous amount but all is still good and can't wait to see the finished product!  I'll push it as far as I can, I have a plan  ;).

 I had'nt thought of the raffles being a problem in some areas. Anyhow, I'll be following this thread to see the finished guitar. Can't wait to see it's progress. 8)

Went to bed very disapointed yesterday.  I had put the finishing touches on, hung it up to dry and the darn thing dropped.  The only good thing is it landed right on the tail block and seemingly only damaged the top.  Cracking stops right at the braces, so the structure doesn't seem compromised and it may be fixable.

Lucky I built 2 of these, so one left for the forum.  This one was the nicer one though, work was cleaner.  Over a hundred hours in this thing.
