    Hi. I guess I haven't posted an update in 3 and a half months... I've mostly been sanding the finish, doing touchups, trying to get rid of sanding scratches, polishing, etc. I'm thinking I'm going to need to upgrade some equipment next time, maybe get a buffing machine? My orbital sander seems...

    Hope to have good updates soon, but until then, here's a picture of one of the electroform decals.

    Thanks everyone! Yeah, I'm not sure why the previous posts are messed up, but they don't have an edit button anymore, so I don't think there's anything I can do. :( I forgot to caption that picture, but I was in the middle of making the nuts and testing out the bridge heights,etc. before...

    Here's my lavender mix of mica powder. In progress: Final color: Peeling the tape... Then there was more taping and I started on spraying the body wings and headstock face black. I sprayed a little extra so I had room to sand before spraying clear over the top, so...

    I have a lot of pictures to update on... On to finishing. So, first I dyed the necks (and thru-bodies) purple. and the maple tops black I used z-poxy with black pigment on the ash, but I guess I didn't take a picture. I did get pictures of all the painters tape, haha. Then I...

    Matching multi-scale guitar and bass

    I put in some time over the weekend and made a lot of good progress. It was fun to realize that I'm done with the router, drill press, bandsaw, and probably the angle grinder. There's a few more pilot holes to drill and the rest is mostly sanding. These are light! I'm going to use these...

    I'm putting battery boxes in these 2 builds and after contemplating where to put them, I ended up deciding to put them on the back side of the inlay since there won't be any pots/switches going through there anyway. This is the guitar. I got a battery box where the battery lays flat instead of...

    Yeah, that's a black veneer. It was a last minute thing and I realized that I haven't taken any pictures of it yet, so that picture might not make sense! Haha. I'll get a picture next time I work on it. The wings are going to end up a different color than the neck thru, so the veneer is kind...

    A couple weeks ago my friend came over to take some photos and video clips (the pictures above are from that day as well), so here's a little video (30 seconds) of starting the neck shaping of the bass with a shinto rasp. I only did a little bit for the video that day because I was doing...
