Hi, Dear friends! It seems I've developed an itch there's just one way to scratch... Right after completing my first build with finishing ( http://www.tdpri.com/forum/other-t-types-partscasters/609638-funcaster.html ) I just needed to spend some time with the smell of freshly sanded wood and tru oil again. And especially have my try on finishing figured maple. This time I'm trying to achieve a bit different character and sound. I really love the sound of The Jezabels guitarist Sam Lockwood's sound. Check out the start of the song "City Girl" He plays a thinline with wide range humbuckers and Orange amp. So humbuckers on a bright side it has to be. And naturally there's no other color for guitar than red. :roll eyes: I also really love the looks of La Cabronita, but I'd like get something unique. Not to spoil the surprise, I'll keep my lay out pics to my self for now. :roll eyes: To describe the goal, I'm trying to combine La Cabronita, bright humbuckers that are just a bit hotter that fidelitrons and sports equipment aesthetics with a hint of dandyness. I'm pretty sure it sounds crazy, but but I think it might be something quite cool. It might be my nod to direction of "Kimicaster" as suggested for me to build by member ThinLion on the thread about my earlier build. I saw some pics of some old Tokai tele with red dyed maple neck, so I'll try to do something like that too. Just really bold fire engine red. And again I'm on a tight budget, but I found a beautiful body from a guitar build.co.uk with a really great price. Walnut with curly maple top. The quality on the body I had custom made there for my earlier build was simply impeccable, so I had to have that as a basis for the project. No disappointment there, it seems to be simply perfect. Service and communication was great again. Could not recommend more if you need a place to make you a body. Neck is cheap unfinished WD parts thing, I hope I don't end up disappointed with that. It looks surprisingly convincing though. Fits like a glove after some sanding. All advise and suggestions from you are kindly appreciated to steer me away from utter failure. Here's some pics of what's happened to this date. Sanding and artist oil colors with tru oil. The only place I can work as a guy living in a flat in a city center is the laundry room of our apartment building in a secrecy at night. So you can be sure you won't see any fancy tools. To be continued... More tinkering this nite ahead.
