On Order – Body Blank and Guitar Parts

Saturday, I received this picture of the alder body blank Mammoth Guitars is supplying (looks great):

I also ordered several guitar parts from them as well. They are an ALLPARTS dealer and Douglas Jordan has been great to work with.

Among the bits and pieces ordered are the following:

  • Chrome neck ferrules
  • Schaller nickel strap pins (I already own a Schaller strap lock)
  • Black pickguard blank
  • Black Gibson style speed knobs
  • Kahler chrome locking clamp
  • .001 capacitors
  • .02 capacitors
  • 3-way Gibson style toggle switch with black knob
  • Switchcraft 1/4″ output jack

UPDATE 03.16.2006 – Everything arrived yesterday – many thanks to Douglas at Mammoth Guitars!
UPDATE 03.10.2006 – Mammoth Guitars shipped today.
UPDATE 03.07.2006 – They will ship Thursday.

  1. when you ordered the blank, did you use the standard size or did you need a custom size to fit the template?

    great job by the way.

    1. Hi Michael – I ordered a 14x20x1.5 blank. The 14×20 is a standard size for Mammoth Guitars but the 1.5″ was a custom request. Typical body blanks are 1.75″ but I wanted to shave additional weight off the guitar by building it thinner. I would have gone thinner but 1.5″ is as thin as the R-trem would permit and still have some material left at the bottom of the route.

      But, keep in mind that I had to angle the template on the blank in order to make it fit because of the extra width of the Klein harp body.
