Noooooooo! The planked guitar looks awesome as is! Leave it be!
Agree. Put a thin coat of clear on it and be done.
I made my first fretboard!! Got a few spots I gotta figure out how to fill. This wood is super smooth. Don't mind the mess, I have 1 1/2 year old.
They both look spectacular. For the plank top perhaps a clear satin lacquer for invisibility and wood stability?
Also, I'd love to hear the GA pups.
Thanks Gentlemen! A thin satin clear coat it will be!
Rob, I will try and get a good video of those pickups later on this week.
That's A-W-E-S-O-M-E- !!!
Very cool dude! What sort of wood?
as far as the "ruined headstock" goes...I'd use amethyst powder or turquoise powder and epoxy...never waste wood. God is watching
Like the coloring in that, but you sure have a lot of sanding to do.
Got so close to plugging this Terraplane in yesterday. Nut slots & strings & initial set up today.
Fill it with some phosporescent epoxy, put a fretboard on it, use the same epoxy for fret dots, and sell/reuse it. That wood is too pretty to waste.
What P90 covers are those?
I am actually not sure what kinda wood it is. I'm leaning towards Brazilian teak. I'm glad I have a lot of room for sanding though. I was marking inlays and realized some of the lighter colored wood is almost spongy. My pencil sunk into the wood. I put some ca on it those spots and let it sink in, I'm hoping that doesn't mess with the color to much and hopefully plenty in when I finish it. I'm thinking of thoughing it on a walnut neck
I can't breathe just looking at that thing!
Now that second photo is just plain ole showin' off, that's what that is. The first one should only be posted after hours because it's pure porn. Beautiful work, Mark.
So the Planks get some Tru-Oil...here is one coat...
Here is another...the grain on this one reminds me of my beloved Japanese Sugi wood...but, this is all western cedar...three piece body with a two piece top...will get one of my "Walkertrons" in the neck and one of my blistering overwound tele bridge pickups...weight should be near the 6lbs range.
Thank you guys so very much. As much as I love crafting and building these are my favorite days. The first strings, the first plug in...ahhh. Thank you guys again for the kind words.
Strings on. Set up. Killing it. This thing just sings. Clean is great. The cascaded plexi dirty tones are unreal!!! Neck is very clear for such a powerhouse. Bridge is my typical overwound rock & roll machine. Bonamassa would love this thing, I just know it...
