I finally got around to taking some pics in natural light (no flash)
Here are the decals I made.
As you can see I have been playing this guitar every day since I finished it...
Ooooh, that's nice, yeah.
awsome ! Mike , how did you get the cool neck wear so fast , that looks great, o and any one know if B benders can be routed in pine ? id herd they wont do work on basswood as its soft.
Man,,, there's something to be proud of!!
Thanks everyone... I wanted to show more of the true color with the natural light. The pine is sort of "silky" in the light and seems to vary in color depending on the angle of the photo and the lighting / flash. It can look anywhere from pale yellow to an orange amber.
The wear on the neck was done the old fashioned way... I play this guitar a LOT... I did not try to make it look that way, it is just happening on it's own. perhaps it's the nitro or the way I applied it but if I did anything to accelerate wear other than playing it... it is purely accidental. The finish is Nitro over shellac.
Mike! Stunning and quite Pinetastic I might add.
Awesome! I love this thread.
Here is what it looks like today after a year of playing it ... a lot...
I have made no attempt to purposely relic it or any attempt to keep it from showing wear.
Wow, Mike, this is an amazing thread and an even more amazing guitar... just gorgeous!
Hmmm.... Going to have to coin that someplace.
I finally got around to making a matching strap a few weeks ago.
that is it! major admiration for your work amigo! I gotta know that instrument gets played with LOVE!
What a great Tele...i would be so proud of that...the leather work looks amazing, very brave of you !!
Looking good Mike! The matching strap is a great touch too. Great job!
Awesome, guitar, pick guard, strap. All of it looks great and apparently plays great as well.
