    Stew Mac Hot Rod Truss Rod upside-down

    No problems using the Spoke Nut truss rods upside down , I do it all the time. As mentioned, the adjustment is reversed.

    Its coming out great Brian. Love the headstock shape too. And P90's ? You can't go wrong :-)

    Confused -What have I done wrong

    You should be able to intonate that , there seems to be a bit of adjustment left on your saddles. Having said that, ideally the bridge should have been mounted a couple of mm further forward.

    Importing Body Blanks into Australia

    I'd grab an Ash body from Stewmac if I were you, their freight rates & delivery times to Australia are excellent. You will have no issues with customs.,_necks,_wood/Electric_guitar_body_blanks/Swamp_Ash_Body_Blank.html

    tele with a twist

    Love the variation on the tele shape ! Can't beat tassie blackwood for a top. I bet it sounds as good as it looks

    Cherryburst Problems

    If it were me, I would go to 1800 then 2400 before moving onto a compound if you are buffing by hand. A buffing wheel is a different story though

    Looking for a rich brown for my Telecaster Custom

    OK, without a spraygun you will have to buy aerosol cans pre-tinted. You could try ReRanch - Something like THIS might do the trick and then clear over the top.

    Looking for a rich brown for my Telecaster Custom

    To me it looks like you are spraying a solid colour which is not going to work. You need to tint your clearcoat with a liquid stain such as THIS then clear over the top. From the examples you provided, a red mahogany should do the trick nicely. It will provide a transparent color-tinted look...

    Thanks Gil, I can have a go at mixing that. Royal Blue seems to be a dark Blue

    1961 Stratocaster build

    Hi Gil, If I wanted to mix my own Olympic White using only the Stewmac pigments, do you have any tips to get me in the ballpark ? Cheers Fletch
