i'm thinkin a surf green Cabronita and an antique white with a P90 in the neck.
Just feeling a little blue today. The dye is done & ready for clear.
Yet another intrepid soul dares to challenge the Blue Guitar Curse!,
Fare thee well, Pilgrim, she’s lovely, and worth the heartache you’re inviting.
Been here done it before, cursed and uncursed variety.
very classy looking guitar, class A and a lots of +
When you get close to winding that neck P90, PM me for a sweet recipe. The stock recipe is not so good in the neck position.
my 5e3 head finally made it to the bench
Well shootfire, Rob, I already have the P90. Boutique winder source; 7k, 42 awg heavy formvar, alnico 5 bar magnets. Thoughts?
I wanna set this guitar up primarily for playing slide. I’m shoppin for any tips for a good bridge pickup to go with the P90....
Obviously, I already have it routed for standard tele bridge pickup - any particularly slide-tastic pickup that will fit in there?
Yesterday, I made a sled for my new dado stack. Today, I made a little box joint key, glued it into a sacrificial MDF facing, and dialed in the placement. First estimate was a bit tight. Moved it over a whopping .004", and the joint came out perfect. Beginner's luck.
The "box" is a planter for my wife. It's 48" long, so it's a good thing I have a high ceiling in the shop.
No glue yet:
Dry fit, test clamping. Glue up in the morning.
Install it and see if you like it. If you’re ears are happy, they’re happy. I have worked out a recipe that I like and just wanted to share if you were interested.
I've been privy to a recipe of Mr. Yeknom's at Borco. I can attest they are pretty tasty.
Got back to my BO Diddly guitar, it had a problem with the paint peeling at the edges and pickup cavities. I went to Walmart and bought popsicle sticks and craft sticks and made a border around the top and pickup cavities. I used my Xacto saw and miter box to cut the 45 degree corners. I also made a 45 degree cut laterally on the straight edges to make them fit together better and help hide the joints.
I need to paint them, so far I'm leaning to Black.
Every Partscaster deserves a partscase, right? So I decided to build a hard case, mostly from timber that I had in my garage and a few hinges and latches from B&Q. The outside has been covered in 2 layers of a weed control fabric which will be coated with a clear varnish to make a tough, durable and washable outer skin. The inside will house 2 storage compartments (I've started work on the first one) and a cut out specifically designed for a Tele. The shape will be formed by building a temporary cardboard wall and filling the cavity with expanding foam. Once trimmed the entire inside will be covered in a silver/gray crushed velour.
I should really have taken pics from the start, but here's the build so far.

Great minds think alike, I just made these on Tuesday. Yours is nicer, I kinda rushed. I had some OSHA red spray paint, so now all my projects will have red stripes on them.
Love the "danger" red!
Every small shop project of mine either gets no finish at all (lazy), or a quick wipe of amber shellac cut with denatured (cheap). Cheap because I mixed up a can to coat a small tweed cab a few years ago, and I'm still working my way through the remainder.
final inspection before first start up on the 5e3. starting to get amped!
Today...gifts for my boys' teachers:
You made em spankin paddles??
LOL, Boards of Education! With holes in the sides to whistle like bombs on their way to the target to terrorize the victims and enhance the experience.
