"000 III" with windows and Venetian cutaway headstock

In this project, I will document the construction of a OOO [: tripple Oh:]. The following special features are found again:

  • Window head plate
  • Pearl inlay in the headstock (Design the "torch inlay" modeled)
  • Pearl inlay in the 12th fret as signature
  • Lace Cutaway
  • Fretboard Binding
  • B-Band pickup system A6.2 with web and Deckentonabnehmer

More, if you just press up on the menu - and have fun!

Planning the Project

I need four main templates. Ceiling with outer contour and bracing; Neck including top plate in plan view and side view and the Zargenkontur and a profile template for the neck profile.

Back and Top

Floor and ceiling I build only in defined curvatures. This makes them both sonically appealing but also for the long-term stress in professional use their strength and resistance. I think of stretch and tensile stresses by heat, heat, etc.

The Body Binding

Here I use a multipart Binding outdoor ABS in vintage yellow and interior 2x wood black / white. The milling channel to have any ring milled around the body. Tricky transitions are the cutaway on both sides.

The Guitar Neck

The neck blank is cut out with the mask made of lightweight mahogany and glued. Both the fingerboard and the neck bearing angle are currently being processed by planing. Then follows the gluing of the head veneer.

Preparation of the Slottet Peghead

This window head gets a custom mother of pearl inlay. This is especially geziechnet and then transferred to the expression on mother of pearl and cut with the Juweliersäge.

Since I have several descriptions of the painting of guitars on my website, I'm no longer here in detail the preparation and implementation.
