Three Amigo's !
The sides are almost pointwelded (TIG) on the Baritone. Tired. Time to have a few. Cheers, y'all !

The result of A Hard Days Night: I almost closed the Baritone.
Same trick, totally different guitars !
... not completely closed her up yet ...
Those d%$ned cutaways are the rough part of the welding job ...
Will you be filling gaps and tidying up edges, etc?
(if so, how?)
Of course !
I will fill the edges of the sides by MIG welding them to the body parts; the welds will give me enough 'flesh' to grind a soft edge to it. Did so on Rustkaster 0001.
About the finishes:
The Budget Tele will be a kinda 'reverse rustburst', using the patina that's already there.
The Baritone will be plain clean steel.
Both bodies will be finished with transparent car paint.
As you can see, I had a rough time welding the sides to the cutaways of the Baritone ...
Well, if a welder needs to grind, he's a grinder, not a welder, huh ?
I struggle with those tight radii even when dealing in wood, so you're not alone.
