Wow - this Ugly Duckling has turned into a beautiful Swan!. This is a work of art!
Great playing too
This is what i use to tint nitro. It's a solvent based glass paints. IMO, it works great, and a color palette gives endless options. This particular lacquer is known here as NC218.
This is for the amber coat.
And now a stand up comedy moment:
this is my setup
I'm short of room and making 1-2 guitars in a year. So it is what it is. Though, looks funny to me also)
Anyways, the burst is on, as are some of clear coats.
You might have noticed that i've added a little support underneath the neck extention. While neck was setting up under string tension, the bottom of the heel moved a bit. I could fit a paper between the heel and body's back. This hasn't happened right away. So, maybe wood had contracted, maybe (more likely) i've missed something about the joint. Anyhow, i hope that additional support will help a bit.
My 'gramil' helped a lot while scraping the binding. The lacquer had a tendency to chip - i should've started scraping it earlier. My scraper uses a piece of hacksaw blade.
That looks great!! I love it.
She looks amazing!! Fantastic result so far
Love it! Nice playing too!
Man! That looks amazing! I want one!
Mr P, you sure know how to use a sprayer as well as tools for fixing old guitars. That is one beautiful guitar now. Once its put together and strung up I think you should do another video of you playing it.. S
El Tele Lobo,
You very kind, thank you!
i'll think about it)
Gluing the neck
I'm backing myself up with the band clamp on the bottom of the heel. Required making a disposable holder.
Sanded to 800 grt
Looks amazing mate!! Such a fantastic job from start to (nearly) finish!
I’m amazed. Your craftsmanship and improvisatory skills are remarkable. A real pleasure to follow!
Some more pics: sanded to 2000
Goooooosh I am AMAZED. Can’t wait to see the pic of the guitar ready to play, and to hear a clip. Wonderful job!
I'm lost for words. That's come out stunning!
