That's great! You're doing some fine work there, lownote. Keep it up
kwerk, are you surprised it turned out nice because it was brushed on? The water born finishes can be brushed on because they dry a little faster than nitro. You do have to work fast and lay it on thick. It's been cool out here in So.Cal. so that helps to slow down the flash time and work with runs. It will have to be wet sanded and polished, though. When I get some time I'll document how I apply the finish.
It was actually Bently who was surpised. Phil was asking him why he was surprised
This guy approves!
Also a proud gradgitate of the DuPont Surface Blasting school !
The finish has dried enough to wet sand and polish. As you can see in the photos the finished dried pretty smooth with hardly any brush strokes. The first thing I did was tape off the top (seams get taped a lot). Since the finish was pretty smooth I wet sanded with 2500 grit and then to 3000 grit. I put a drop of dish washing liquid in a pint sized squirt bottle and spray a little on the guitar and sand in circular motion with the 2500 (an area about 6" in diameter) until there are no shiny spots left and go to another section. The same thing is done with the 3000 but, since the finish is dull I sand until I get a semi gloss finish. The body is wiped down with a wet cloth
and dried to remove any soap residue.
With a clean cloth, I use an old sock. Again with McGuire's #7 I polish in circular motion an area the size of a soft ball. Too large of an area and the polish smudges. I wipe off the residue and move to another spot. The finale step Is too go over the polish areas with McGuire's swirl remover and the residue is wiped off with a good clean soft terry cloth towel, and it's done.
Took about four hours the put all the hardware on and set it up.
I love the sound of this bass!
Now I have to finish the neck.
Beautiful! Great work!
Beautiful boomin' bass.
That is such a bangin' build!
I totally agree! Love it, and it’s giving me more inspirations!
