Velvet prototype [VE6HH-00]


Well, for anyone not knowing, I'm currently using most of my time in crafting electric guitars and basses, this is the first one that I actually finished, it took like 4 months of work, I'm currently working on other proyects as well, hope I can share them once I finish them :p

01 Velvet prototype [VE6HH-00] by PtolemaiosLS

this is the finished piece, laurelia wood 2 piece body, lingue neck(both chilean) and Cumaru fretboard(brazilian), 25.5" scale, 24 medium frets, bone strat style nut 42mm, 6 in line tuners, fixed string through bridge.

02 Velvet prototype [VE6HH-00] by PtolemaiosLS

as you see, I have both the top and bottom carved out by hand, the body is designed for absolute comfort (and it also looks cool), took lot of hours in order to make get this shape.

04 Velvet prototype [VE6HH-00] by PtolemaiosLS

the neck is glued to the body, then carved flush, so you don't actually see the joint between them, specially since the body is stained black with a gradient to the neck, this surely was a pretty cool aesthetic trick, after stained is finished in nitro laquer and then some final clear acrylic coat.

03 Velvet prototype [VE6HH-00] by PtolemaiosLS

Thanks for watching, I'm really sorry that I can't get around dA that much, but I'm sure I will be posting the final proyects, I already share my process works in my facebook page (Spanish) and the MIMF forum, that one is in English but is filled with technical discussion (my username is "Leonardo Silva", which is my real name), more related to anyone who wants to become a luthier, anyway, if someone is interested in learning this art, I can share tips and process just as I did when I used to draw and post in here.

and finally, a sound test  "soundcloud velvet audio test"


That's it, I know this page is kinda dead and the public I used to have is nowhere near the kinda art I do now, I would really love to be able to draw again, it was quite relaxing, but then again, probably crafting instruments will be my job in a close future, so I need to dedicate myself to it, thanks for anyone reading this.
