Great work, Bossman. Thanks for all the "tips". I really appreciate the stoptail drilling
idea because my drill press isn't deep enough for the body to fit in order to drill those two.
Thought about making a 'straight hole jig', but using the square seems a whole lot easier.
I'm in the clear coat process, and it sure does get more exciting the further along I go.
Coincidentally enough, my top color is red as well, lol. Keep the faith and I look forward
to seeing yours to completion (although the race is "ON" now, buwahaha)
Thanks! glade you were able to find some of this useful.
Just need to finish the the head stock and I will be starting the clear coat.
Installed my inlay and sanded it. Appling a second coat of epoxy now.
Lookin good Rob!
I like it! Without detracting from your thread, please remind me of the source for the
custom inlays like you've done.
Thanks. Got the inlay from tulsah. He did a great job.
I'm long over due for an update. Grain has been filled and the back has been stained. Inlay has been completed. If everyhing stays on track I plan to start the finish next weekend.
Lookin AWESOME ! ! can`t wait to see and hear the finished product,, video would be sweet !
Thanks. I will see what i can do about the video.
Had a little set back on the finish today so tomorrow I will be laying down the clear.
Well... I'm a little bummed out today. While the guitar was hanging it fell. Somehow the wind blew it off the hook it was hanging from. Thankfully nothing broke. Here are a couple of shots of the damage.
Well I was able to fix the damage. I saved the all saw dust from when I sanded the guitar so I mixed it with some yellow wood glue and made a putty.
Here it is sanded down.
Here it is stained.
In the picture it stands out but in person it doesn't. I'm happy with the way it turned out. I was able to get 25 coats of clear on the top and 20 on the rest of the guitar. Now I will let it dry for awhile.
Good work there! Keep it up!
Lookin good ! !,, once you nitro it up even close up it will be hard to tell it was ever there.
Thanks guys. I was really bummed when it happen but now that it's fixed you can't really tell it ever happen.
Awesome save Bossman!
Can't wait to see the finished guitar as your new avatar!! Considering what we have all went through with these GM kits, individually, and helping each other to save what turned out to be VERY marginal kits in a lot of ways, everyone should be very proud of their efforts! There are some amazing guitars here, against all odds!
I know I was proud to hang mine beside my Custom and actually find I am playing it more! Anyone wanna buy a Custom Stick with it Bossman, might just be the prettiest one here when its done!
