Does anyone know if urethane finish require grain fiiling like lacquer?
I'm planning to use 2k urethane spray cans on a spalted maple/korina body.
Yup, at that point the guitar wasn't intonated yet...
I would say A5 wound around 7-7.5k.
The tuner buttons are made of plastic.
It's a free upgrade here in Japan.
Hi I just finished assembling my telecaster.
My goal was to keep the final cost below $500+shipping using ebay as a source for the parts.
$135 for a 1 piece body under 4lbs from a guy with a good reputation seems to be a pretty good deal!
I would recommend HDCustom Guitar Supply
I have a 7.25 radius strat with stewmac #152(.092x.048) and it is very comfortable
and easy to play.
Anyone have experience with violin varnish?
I was hoping someone can give me some advice on how to sand and polish.
This is how it looks now...
The screws won't break as long as you don't use powertools/apply too much
sudden pressure to the screws.
The key of not breaking the screws is...
Ordered directly from them.
Some emails took a week to get response so probably not the best people to emal.
When I ordered my jazzmaster body+CBS style neck earlier this year, the waiting time was about 2.5 months.
Any comment on the quality of the bridge?
This seems like the same bridge and was wondering if it's a decent quality bridge....
It works fine.
Not the best tool but it will do the job.
Anyone tried pickups from this guy?
If you wanna go cheap I would recommend ebay seller "handsand" and "redhed62".
Usually Swamp Ash tele bodies go for $100 +/- $20.
You read Japanese?
This guy can be trusted;
Few things you won't find there are 4 way switch, fancy oil or film capacitors, and pickups(very limited).
Luck is not necessary.
I know a guy who will do a pretty nice fret dress for $50-$80(depends on how much other setup/repair is required)
No wonder people love pine so much...
Someone like me who has no skill and tool to build a body probably wouldn't
benefit from it...
What's the point of using pine?
Ash and Alder sounds as good as pine does plus they are less prone to dings and dents.
I live in Tokyo Japan and i'm pretty sure that there are many quality repair shops that will do way less than that!
Usually less than $100.
Thanks for the responses.
Is it safe to think it's like the C shape listed on USACG?
