UPDATE: Jan 18, 2012
Right now I’m keeping alot of it under wraps, but here are a few pieces of info: The body is styled after The Green machine featured on my blog and made out of mahogany (painted in a fantastic glitter green color) and will sport a full rosewood neck and tremolo bridge. Some of the bells and whistles are still undecided, but Steve and I will figure all of that out soon.
Big thanks again to Steve for giving me this fantastic project!
Here’s an up date on the Ultra Green Machine (now dubbed the OZMA Racer).
Since there are different shades of green glitter applied, the color can vary due to angle of view, lighting or surrounding colors. In normal lighting it looks much less yellow than what the photos show. It’s pretty wild, and possibly not the final coat of glitter. Steve wanted bigger, chunkier glitter- but after this step I had to stop to get his opinion on going further since it’s already amazing! I’m trying my hardest to complete this in time to play at a special show this Halloween.
It’s also time to decide on the controls and their placement- we still haven’t decided if there will be a science kit of knobs and switches or just a simple volume control and a single pickup selector. The plastic oval pickups surrounds are being made now and I plan on having them available to order online soon.
