    No worries mate, cheers for the nudge. Been having a bit of a Christmas break, with no access to a workshop, back in action starting this Tuesday.

    Here's a teaser for what's yet to come:

    That's very pretty! I looked into getting some DPP, turns out it's pretty hard to get this side of the pond. Then I did some more *ahem* research, and discovered the Molotow Premium spray bomb range. Those wacky Germans.

    Yes it is, it's the postage that breaks the deal. Other flake brands are around, but pink flake by any other name would not look as sweet (on a Brainy tribute), now would it? Anyway, I'm sort of relieved that I now don't have to figure out how to get the flake from the jar onto the body. One of these days I will get around to doing a flake finish... but not yet.

    Finally a little progress, even if some of it is sideways.

    [​IMG]

    Should have put the top on ages ago. Maybe then the plywood back wouldn't have twisted the body quite this much. Nothing that a few passes on the jointer won't fix though. Good thing this isn't a Strat so I don't have to worry about body thickness too much.

    [​IMG]

    Gluing the 2-piece top together. It's from the same birch plank as the body core, about 5 mm thick.

    All taped up.

    Ah, there you are. You can't introduce PP to us and then just disappear, you know. But I know Andy would have been deeply appreciative of your efforts to find just the right color.

    The only thing about that PP is that you can't just USE it. It's not like DPP. You have to warm it up gradually. Talk nice to it. Let it drink a little thinner. Rub its can gently. Maybe bring a little gift. And if it isn't in the mood to be sprayed, well, forget it. DPP, hey, give me two seconds, good to go. Always ready.

    Gluing the top on, finally. I should have snuck in a few more clamps.

    When I started this thread, I promised a unique feature. Feel free to prove me wrong - but as far as I know, unlike all other guitars ever, this is (going to be) the first guitar where the A-hole is on the front.

    Here's a gratuitous A-hole close-up.

    I'm sure Brainy would have loved your A-hole...

    Wait... What???
