Man I'm late to this party. Great work Tigger.
Saved you some cake.
This is one of the most inspiring threads in this forum.
There ya go Rex!
Selling a pre-broken headstock is a great idea! So, when you have to repear it again is not reducing the value of the instruments. From now on, we can sell a broken headstock Gibson as "carefully reliced in al the minimum details"
I'm afraid you are being overly kind. In fact, I'd never embark on this have I not spent the past decade reading build threads here!
The weather isn't great, humidity in the 80's. I'm still putting the base lacquer layer on. Once it's sufficiently built up I'll continue with R&F guitar neck lacquer. I'm not really sure what the actual difference is but it feels great as it doesn't stick at all.
But the beer's all gone.
Man, I just got home to find the beer is all gone
According to Yeknom, the cake is strictly for throwing... I think he’s been hanging out with Marie too much...0
Just so long as it’s only cake he and his minions are flinging . . .
Even more inspiring to see this - there may be hope for me yet (I work also work in software)!
Absolutely great work on the SG!
Rain and rain. We're leaving today for more than a week so there won't be any updates for some time. I put the headstock under UV for a few hours to turn it amber.
I will need to do the same to the binding to match up old binding color with new binding color. I need to be rather conservative because the existing lacquer did not age that much, the guitar has been clearly kept in case much of it's life, being more red than my '04 that's been out of it's case for much of it's life.
Tigger your work is terrific.
I can't get grain filler so here's my tip. I store the wood shavings of Mahogany in a glass sealed jar.
When I need it I use a dab of Titebond and some shavings. blends in perfectly, you can sand it and colour it when dry.
You sir have done a mind-blowing job. I can't wait to see the finished article.
Looking good, Tigger. You are doing great work - a meticulous craftsman. Can't wait to see the finished product.
