Make a Modern Multi-Scale Guitar - Ep 10 HAND Steam Bending the Acoustic-style Sides Tutorial
Welcome to Crimson Guitars https://www.youtube.com/user/CrimsonCustomGuitars?sub_confirmation=1 and Ben’s home workshop where he is currently building the modern multi-scale NEBULA 2.0 Guitar. In this episode, Ben finishes making the form to mould the steam-bent sides. This burled wood may be beautiful, but how will it hold up to being bent into shape?
The original Nebula guitar featured here - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NbgwfWZXgBo was so well received that it sold immediately...twice.
In this series, Ben will be building the new and improved Nebula 2.0 as a custom order. https://youtube.com/playlist?list=PLp6z5fUMeeAbybji0M7hS0Xde3YckYxyh Different from the original, this guitar will be a multi-laminate neck, modern fanned fret, semi-hollow, electro-acoustic beauty. This series should be about 10-12(ish) episodes.
