A Luthier Builds a Whole Custom Guitar in SIX Hours.. from SCRATCH! ep 1

Âm Nhạc



Welcome to Crimson Guitars and the latest guitar building challenge with Ben Crowe. Watch as Ben attempts to hand build a whole guitar in one 6 hour Marathon. The videos were filmed as close to continuosly as we could and the series is comprised of 12 half hour videos watching everything as it happens.. we hope you enjoy the ride!

In this episode, Ben talks about his wood choices, including some timber recovered from an old staircase, and gets started with the build.

Despite the challenge and time constraints Ben is as ever treating this as a teaching exercise and you will hopefully learn many tips and tricks of the guitar building art form.

  1. Haha. Love it! Other than after 8 minutes into the build my pulse rate and blood pressure was creeping up watching you rush!!! ☺️

  2. Hey you're in England you can't order Pizza, you're supposed to be eating stuff like Fish and Chips, Crumpets, Mushy peas, Kippers.. stuff like that.

  3. Ben, why not use a router plane for the truss rod slot? Just sayin', if ya don't like the sound of the router 🙂

  4. You doing the voiceover, commenting on yourself, now that opens up an entirely new dimension to this! just don't be too hard on yourself.

  5. Coming soon, the zero hour build, and the Minus-3 hour build, where you attempt to take an already built guitar and disassemble it and integrate the body and neck back into their original wood blocks within 3 hours.

  6. This might start to be bordering on uncomfortable, watching you punish yourself with these insane tasks.
    a solitary man in the workshop, continually driving himself mad, and loving every moment.
    you may need someone to gently pry you out of there for some sun on your skin 😉
    but do carry on, we love these!

  7. can anyone (including Ben, if it's possible) tell me anything about the real reasons why use 2 wood pieces glued together for body instead of one?

  8. Where do I go to find comparisons between drill, router bits, and endmills? I spend my days obsessing about cutting stainless steels and high temp alloys. Woods pose a quandary to me. High speed steel, cobalt, and carbide would all work so far as I can tell. Edge prep, helix angles flute depth, web thickness… it all gets thrown out the window with wood. I could make some recommendations, but I suspect this subject has been covered.

  9. In case you haven’t figured out the “audio glitch” you noticed and commented on in your voice over, that’s what lapel mics do any time there’s a loud pop, slap, clap, or slam of something. That abrupt loud noise causes that glitch you’re hearing. I learned that when making a video with my handgun – each time I released the slide that loud noise would briefly glitch out the audio.

    Cheers!

  10. was not ready for the pan around to the rest of the shop, Here I thought you were working in a cool antique barn or something lol. Great work!

  11. I AGREE ABOUT THE TRITON ROUTERS, THEY HAVE ALL THE BELLS AND WHISTLES, WHY DIDN'T THEY PUT A LIGHT IN THEM? I USE MY LITTLE DEWALT LAMINATE TRIMMER FOR ROUTING CAVITIES BECAUSE ITS THE ONLY ROUTER I HAVE WITH A LIGHT AND IT WAS HUNDREDS LESS THAN ALL MY OTHER BIG ROUTERS. I DO USE THE BIG TRITONS IN MONE OF MY ROUTER TABLES AND MY OVERHEAD PIN ROUTER. I LOVE HOW THEY COME ALREADY SET UP FOR TABLE ROUTING. AND THE FENCE SYSTEMS ON THEM ARE THE BEST ON THE MARKET, EVEN BETTER THAN FESTOOL'S.

  12. I remember in the first build you mentioned building a guitar with as few tools as possible. Did that ever happen or is it just an idea for the future?

  13. Why would you take someone's special piece of fretboard wood for a project that could easily turn into a complete disaster? Kind of a dick move.

  14. Great watch, thank you. I'd really like to see that build using the minimum of tools I think you suggested, Ben. Is that still in your plans?

  15. would you not have to worry about warping? from what i know after working some types of wood they will warp or can warp afterwards, meaning between different stages you have to let them rest. and ive seen this on real old properly dried wood, so dampness wasnt the explanation.

    also you should totally try a jatobo build aka Brazilian cheery wood, even though its not actually cherry wood. however its got a super nice color too it and it ages really well. you probably wouldnt need any sort of coloring to the finish just a straight up lacquer to protect it. it also gets deeper and deeper in color and becomes a nice deep red with age, if memory serves its sunlight reactive naturally and will darken pretty quick.

  16. 'Why are we watching this in the first place?'
    That's actually a very good question… xD
    In a sense your videos are often quite therapeutic to watch however! And a wonderful voiceover once again! Kinda feels like one of those old wild-life documentaries haha!
    Awesome stuff!

  17. I'm not a guitar builder (yet) but love working with wood. I have a question. Is the groove always the same width for the truss rods? If it is, couldn't you make neck template with a tang that would fit into the routed groove so when you traced the neck outline onto the piece of wood, that it would automatically be on center?

  18. I just stumbled on your videos from around 2012, loved them. Glad to see you are still in business and by the looks of things doing pretty damn well!

  19. "Why are we even watching this in the first place"

    Because I want to start a guitar company and this is literally showing me how to build it without cutting anything out

  20. Love your crazy challanges ! If I were to do this, Id go thru-neck monocoque. Plywood (proper furniture grade) carbon fibre and aluminium sheet. Cheers !
