Well i ahve a few pictures for you today on my guitar build kind of a spin off of a music man axis with a twist or two thrown in there ..Well i finaly got my cnc router that i built from scatch up and running,,I built all the pc boards and electronics..along with the machine itself.So after a month of trouble shooting I have finaly started the test body I glued up a few pine 2x4s to make up a body blank...I wanted a test piece before i dumped alot money into nice wood only to destroy it with programming issues...And trust me i have had a few wild crashes lol ..Well enjoy the pictures and i will keep you updated as i progress thru this projectAttached ImageAttached ImageAttached ImageAttached Image

Thank you all for your kind words....The top should be all done by the weekend.I have to build a fixture to hold it for when i flip it over to cut out all the pockets for the electronics and curves and spring set up..So far so good though only had to make a few ajustments to the program 1 being the single coil pickup was a bit to small.No big deal easy fix..I have to get some wire tubeing to clean up all the wires so they dont get all chopped up lol...That would be all i need lol .I am sure i will have more pics soon
