style" mosrite of burgundya"

Postby ludobag » Sat Dec 03, 2011 1:58 pm

:lol: the title is a joke ;) in burgundy there is only wine
pics stolen from hallmark site
i am hesitate beetween 59 model
Image
and the 60
Image
this one is really beautifull
Image
for the body i have a basswood blank (ithis blank may be first a télé, after a mustang an then now it will be a mosrite :twisted: i hope)
need to glue an hear cause it is little short in larger
Image
i have find this pdf for a mosrite is it the same size than the one i want ? (with the slanted pick up)
it have a thickness of 45 mm at this time, but it will be less after some planing cause i have suck when i glue it! my clamps have made one part go a 1 mm highter than the other :roll: but on the topic for made a clone the thickness is 1 5/8 inch then in metrics it is 42mm
for the neck
i have some rosewood for the fretboard
and some mapple to make the neck but i haven't big blank like EFElliott use to make one piece ,my thickest is 35mm or 1, 37 inch then i think i will have to glue a headstock after a 7° cut or do a laminated
for the heel if i made a screweed neck it will be ok but if i want to glue it i will need to glue another piece of wood to have the mosrite tenon
for the nut i have seen in the topic of EFElliott the 0 fret and the nut fret it is really good idea and so easy ,and it will avoid to find a rare part i think
for the pups i don't know what to put ? i have time for that before i must find the more harder the trem ;) hope my friend will be ok to make 2 one for him and one for me :D

The answer to this question is no. That pdf was made by none other than forum member Bushers, he used his Mosrite MK5 to create it. I have a set of templates of a MK1 (style pictured above) I maybe able to trace and send to you.

Image
with the information on the thread to make clone i found some mesurements
but i don't find the lenght of the head ?
and i must go to laminated neck cause my wood aren't thick for one piece ,i have seen a venture model with a laminated at fretted americana http://www.frettedamericana.com/details ... &counter=7
for sure it will be more easy if i ever seen one and note all the needed to ;)
on this
4. Neck volute thickness at the headstock is 1 3/8", referring to the area at the nut guide (side view).
with the thickness of fretboard or not ?
cause in fact it is really thick :shock:

Maybe Danny will chime in as he's the one who had the guitar these measurements came from but I think the measurements includes the fretboard.

ludobag, are you planning to cast the plate and rocker out of aluminum?

I've got a Moseley vibrato that I could make a drawing, I wouldn't know where to begin making a drawing using a computer. I would have to make a hand drawing with the measurements, photograph it and save it to Photobucket then display it here on the forum. It will be a process I could do when I have some extra time if no one else here on the forum can help you sooner.
