    November GOTM.

    Its time for the November GOTM already!

    November Guitar of the Month (for Guitars and Basses finished in October 2018)

    Enter your finished guitar or bass here to be judged for the Pit Bull Guitars November 2018 Guitar of the Month.

    Please remember:

    For Guitars or Basses finished on (or before) the end of October 2018

    One guitar/bass per member per month
    It must be a Pit Bull Guitars kit (mods and upgrades acceptable)
    Guitar or Bass must be finished and playable

    We need at least 4 photos:
    · full guitar shot from the front;
    · close up of the body finish;
    · shot of the back of the guitar; and
    · close up of the headstock (please, no brand name logos)


    Please post your photos in this thread. If you are having issues posting photos on the forum, please email them to brendan (at) pitbullguitars (dot) com

    Please note: This competition is open to amateur guitar builders only. If you are making and selling guitars for profit, you are ineligible. Also while there are some stunning guitars around - you never know what the judges are looking for, so we encourage anyone who's built a Pitbull during the month to enter!

    Competition for November closes at the end of October 2018 (Perth Western Australian time).

    The sorts of things we judge on include:
    · How well have the body and neck been prepared
    · Is the choice of finish for the style of guitar appropriate
    · How well has the finish been applied
    · How well has all the hardware, pickups, etc, been installed
    · Does it have the "Wow Factor"
    · Which guitar would you make a beeline for in a guitar shop. That is, which one would you most like to take home.


    BTW - remember that the winner is invited to be a guest judge the following month!

    Hi

    I'm extremely happy because I made it to the end of this project.

    This is my first build, and didn't choose the easiest way. I have put some challenges, to make it more special and more personal and unique.

    The specs:
    - explorer kit from Pitbull ash body, maple neck, ebony fretboard
    - Seymour Duncan nazgul + sentinent pickups
    - some funky electronics : split coil on both pickups, coated all the inside and solderless potentiometers (Seymour Duncan liberator and push pull pot)
    - oil finish no stain
    - lot of work on frets and action etc ...
    - skull pot knobs

    The guitar is amazingly cool to play (funny shape, sound spectrum from metal on humbukers to blue and jazz on single coil, intonation, action really nice)

    Hope you like it.

    There is a video on my build diary of the sound of the beast the different sounds you can have on it are crazy.

    It would have been kinder to perhaps use a Kramer or Charvel headstock, this one is very blunt......

    Having built both EX1 & EX5 the guitar headstock is very blunt compared to 5 string Bass headstock that is more elongated, like it should be.
    That said, this is a very nice naturally finished guitar that sounds as good as it looks.

    Pommy world war 2 fighter pilot terminology used there. No other meaning intended. Probably should have used yankee 10/4 instead?
