    How do I yellow a finish?

    I recently sprayed a Telecaster of mine in a white blonde, with Watco lacquer. It has been over a month, and she is all sanded and polished up. I now realize that it would look better with a slight amber tint to it. SO... how would I go about yellowing the finish in the sun? For how long...

    Direct mount Tele neck p/up

    The pickup I bought to put in the rhythm position of my telecaster did not come with any mounting hardware. I would like to body mount the pickup since the 5-screw guard did not come with mounting holes, nor do I like the look of it mounted to the guard. What size and length screw do I need...

    Anyone have a cross or emblem etched on your guitar?

    If you must have one carved in, why not do a small cross inlay in the same place as the inlay on SRVs Lenny? That would be neat lookin'

    Remove chrome to leave nickel

    There is copper and nickel under most chrome. I've talked to a few old guys in metal plating, that's the way it's done. You can't just plop the chrome on anything. Thanks for the advice

    Remove chrome to leave nickel

    I would like to remove the chrome plating on a bunch of parts, mainly because I very much dislike the cold, bluish tint that it has. I know that nickel is plated under chrome, and I would like to strip ONLY the chrome. Is there any home solution to this, such as vinegar or some other acid...

    Need a Gibson custom shop decal

    What the hell happened to the paint on that perfectly good guitar? I thought you put on the decal after the color coat, no?

    White lacquer tint/pigment

    Wow, is that ever cool! Looks like pickling stain. The grain in mine stands out a lot more than the photo shows. Yeah 50 drops is less than a teaspoon. And it wasn't the most accurate way of measuring, but it turned out pretty good I think. :)

    White lacquer tint/pigment

    Here she is after the color coats are applied. I mixed 50/50 lacquer and acetone, with about 50 drops of the white Mixol pigment per 6oz. This was after 4 coats with a HVLP:

    Your Least Favorite Guitar Tones

    I've never understood the hype about Zakk Wylde or Slash. Terrible in my opinion, and to say Wylde overdoes the harmonic squeals is an understatement. Unlistenable. Anyone can get Slash "tone" with some gain and a humbucker, throw in some wah if ya like. Bland, cookie-cutter, uninspiring.
