Hi folks,

I just wanted to share the blog I've set up to document the repairs I'm making on my Artist #1412. It's been tricky to find some of the information I've been looking for, so I thought I'd set up something where I could post the things I'm learning. It's been a fun project so far. Hope you enjoy it!

Thanks,
-Fran

Kevin at EGC/Travis Bean Designs can make you new pickups and anything else needed to the original spec.

Thanks Quimby, I've looked into Kevin's website. It looks like he does some fantastic work. My guitar needs a bunch of parts, and when I looked into buying them all, it was going to cost over a thousand dollars for everything. Since I like figuring out how to make things, I figured I could spend that thousand dollars on tools and materials, and in the end I'd have some tools and some new skills.

Also, I might be doing things a little differently than the stock components. I'm a bit spoiled with my guitar. It's actually pretty light, since it doesn't have the stainless steel cavity cover & pickguard. I was thinking of making the cover & pickguard out of polished aluminum (maybe making some stainless steel versions to leave in the case) to lighten things up.

So, I'll see how it goes. Definitely an experiment, and something that'll be slower than buying the parts, but I think it'll be fun and educational.
