I'll trade you my -17°F for your cold and rainy.
kinda hard to get lacquer to dry on a -17 degree day....
Tell me about it...winter is time for oil and wipe-on poly.
Today it froze between the gun and the guitar!
That's how cold it was here!
Of course this is Iowa. We may have 50° temps by next weekend.
Gotta love it...because loving it is cheaper than moving!
Rofl, good one! And very very true! =P
Love the winter to Lacquer Guitars...
Not in Phoenix - we winterize our house by opening the windows. I saw in a previous Terry Downs thread he showed his spray booth. Well in Tempe AZ in the winter I open my garage door and use my spray booth.
I made it out of 1" PVC - no glue (in case I have to take it down because my wife wants to put her car in the garage). I used zip ties and shower curtains. Cost me probably $50 for the whole deal and one day's work.
Chris, Ron - any of you really talented guys want to come to the sunshine and show me the tricks and tips of guitar building - well...
Higgy...is thatt table in your booth...a wine rack stand...??.....
if it is.....hahhahhhaha
now that's funny.
Wine Rack in the Spray Booth...
I was waiting for someone to notice that. My wife bought a new liquor/wine cabinet and this one got tossed out to the garage. It is perfect height to lay a body on and work on it - especialy for wet sanding. And if I really screw something up I can reach below and open a good bottle of chardonnay or merlot. (Still looking for pilsner bottles long enough to stay in the rack )
It works great to hold a body so I can spray the sides as well. I placed a turnbuckle on some supports from the ceiling piece. I can hang a guitar or neck and turn it if needed - works great.
I built those body stands from the leftover styrofoam pieces Stanley Steemer places under your furniture after cleaning the carpets. I asked the guys for a few blocks of them - they work great. (BTW- I didn't spray the both pieces in the booth together - they are just in there drying)
Higgy, i think you got a smart idea going there.
i'm jealous of that plank and neck i see in the photo.....i think that's the body colour i'm after...is that a nocaster ish vintage blonde, more opaque with butter than margerine blonde ??
why am i talking like this ??
no wonder my cousin laughs at me when i talk about guitar colour.
Thanks Ron! Great Walkthrough.
It is great to see a Master of their Art sharing knowledge, instead of hoarding it and keeping it all a secret.
AJ, Welcome to the party.. just put the beer in the 'fridge.... and the Boys of Green Bay were my team bach when. . .
Now, I don't even have time to watch the "cut away" shots of the Cheerleaders.....
Holy Crap! Another cheesehead decides to bring this thread up to date......and with his very first post, too! It's really too small of a world! How cool is that?
Ron, when I called you the other day to have you build a guitar for me, I really meant to have you build me this:
I really hope it's not too late........LOL. Can't wait for the guitar, Ron! You're the greatest!
BTW, the GB cheeleaders were never all that exceptional when compared to other NFL cheerleading teams.....even in the early days....these days they're mostly comprised of volunteer student ladies from nearby St. Norbert's college or UWGB. GB could use an upgrade in this respect.
So anyway, which cheese gives the best tone?
Stilton gives me the best tone... but we ain't talkin' about that, are we...
Well, regardless of tone, it simply wouldn't be right to have a custom-built guitar come to Wisconsin without using all natural, aged cheddar cheese. However, it appears as though we might have to ask Ron to re-clarify his question.
Beautiful guitar! I hate to appear so ignorant, but what about the neck - was it custom, or purchased? Any info about this aspect of the project would be very much appreciated. Thanks.
Its on page 3 of the thread, VanGray.
Beware of mice....!
THAT is cool...where and how can I get Corian like that?
