DIY mod 3 (arm rest added)



*** Part 4

Got a camera carry handle to try different design.My local hardware store didn’t have the hanger bolts(?) so I’ll use a regular machine screw. The screw goes deep into the wood so it should work just fine, I hope..
Cut the screw using dremel cutter. I think this is long enough.

試してみたいと思ってたカメラ用のハンドルを入手しました。近所のハードウェア屋さんにはhanger boltsが無かったので普通のmachine screwを使います。まあ、結構深くまで入るから木ネジじゃなくても大丈夫でしょう。

Put a new drill hole at the side of the body and use jam nut method to insert the bolt.

他のネジ穴と干渉しないように新しい穴を開けます。で、jam nutメソッドを使って深く入れて行きます。

Hmm..not bad, I like it! The only drawback is it is not foldable so it is always visible.


*** Part 3

I am working on the production model now. I put the wood blocks (red ones) to mount the hardtail-converted bridge.


Why red? Just like the red brake calipers or Guthrie Govan’s Charvel, the red color will be visible only a little bit. Cool?

なんで赤いって? ほら、車のブレーキキャリパーとかガスリー・ゴーヴァンのシャーベルみたいに赤がチラっと見えるのが好きなんです。


*** Part 2

Hmm.. I’m not sure if I like the cheap Overlord of Music bridge, even the original Steinberger bridge which is on the first prototype. Unlike Strat, it uses only one but very strong spring and that gives a lot of stress to other parts of the bridge. I googled and found many people experienced issues with this style of bridge.
Okay let’s forget about the tremolo, I decided to mount the bridge using four screws to use it as a hardtail. I need to modify the bridge cavity.

(i reliced it already..)




*** Part 1

Here is the prototype of my new guitar.


I did this crazy mod on my Steinberger Spirit.

昔買って放置してたSteinberger Spiritを魔改造しちゃいました。


The purpose of this prototype was to confirm my new construction idea would actually work. Recently I released M16 Harrier model from my brand but that guitar is very hard to make so I wanted to try different design which should greatly reduce the building steps.
Oh, I’m talking about the construction of the body, not about the body shape.

I think it went pretty well so I am going to make a production model next. (actually it’s almost done on my work table)

これは新しい構造のボディを試すためのプロト。Yajima String Worksからリリース済みのM16 Harrierって造るのがすごく大変なんです。今回試した新しい構造のボディは大分製作工程を短縮出来るというのが確認出来ました。あ、今はボディの「構造」の話ね。「デザイン」の話じゃないですからね。見た目はちょっと変わるけど、これで行ければ今より大分価格を安く出来るかなと期待してます。次はプロダクションモデルを造ってみます(実はもうほとんどパーツは出来てて組み込むだけになってます)

The AR15 Carry handle, which I used for M16 Harrier, was too big for this little guitar so I put the classic M60 handle. I wonder if one of those video camera’s carry handle would work on this…

M16 Harrierで使ったAR15のキャリーハンドルはこの小さいギターにはデカ過ぎたので、クラッシックなM60のハンドルを付けてみました。ああ、このダサいハンドルがカッコいい。。ビデオとかカメラのハンドルも試してみようかな
