I'm in, but I want to take some better pics to post here. Hopefully Arlo will join us here, since he's kind of responsible for getting us started.

Well heres mine. Picked the Body up from Reddirt on the RR forum. Pretty basic set up. Ten piece pine body-not hardened or sealed, RR fender blonde and very thin clear, just enough to get the shine you see here. it was tough not to sand through. Pick up is a hot alnico II fat body(wider pole pieces-think quater pounder). Custom Tortoise pick guard, Neck is off my 95 Telecaster special (I gotta have that neck on my #1) controls are from the special but the plate and knobs are from a road worn.

Frankly Im shocked at how resonant and twangy this bad boy is!! I get alot of conmpliments on the tone using this with my Blues Jr.

had alot of fun with this.. its aging quickly though. I will try and get a new shot to show how shes breaking in

Ok Pine Boy's Riddle me This??

I am building my first Pinecaster but unsure about the finish i want. I have very limited exposure to wood working and finishing. I would like a finish that looks a little aged but also not so thick. I would like a small amount of shine though. Any suggestions would be great!

Thanks,

sLY

I guess my Tryggvecaster counts too... the body made of three IKEA Tryggve shelf planks and finished with yacht laquer, neck is off a Squier '51.
Bridge pup is a GFS, neck an old Teisco goldfoil.

PineNewbie,
Many people use Tru-oil. It is sold in gun shops and depts. Multiple coats produce a nice shine. Personally I've never used it, but search for it here on the TDPRI and you can see the results.

well i got took maybe. I got the pine body today. i put some cell pictures up a few posts ago. I tried it with the neck and bridge and the bridge rout is off. you can see it in the pic i put up with the neck on it. i didn't see it until i tried to string it. The high e and b strings are out in the air. I wrote the seller i hope he makes good. I REALLY wanted this to work as its just what i wantede an esquire type without the neck hole like my dad is having made in ash by someone. I wanted in pine like leos first ones but NOOOO i had to get the off kilter piney special LoL. well wish me luck I guess i will have to find a body maker to make me one. the problem is they always charge more then i got to spend LoL.

Now I have to find another pine body. The seller just emailed me that I can return it and he will refund my bid plus original shipping. I am out the amount I have to pay to send it back ,but better then being out the whole thing. So this is good sorta. Now who makes pine bodies inexpensively? I paid 108 with shipping on this one so I am looking for something in that range. with the same layout. just the bridge rout and string through holes. I would also like the control rout and the neck mount and bridge mount holes. basically like the one I am sending back but with the rout lined up correctly. LoL.
