Trimmed the cloth ribbon to 1 1/8"
Get the essentials ready
Start at the neck route,trust me
Then down the first side
Then continue around,this what it looks like with the glue
Then rolled smooth
Now this is important,go around to the beginning and overlap at least 1 inch
Put the lap in the corner then there's no noticeable hump. Although this isn't one, when you do your Dano clones this beats the hell outta that tape. I fill with polycrylic then go over with polyurethane varnish. My 12yr old jazz is just as shiny and stuck as hard as the day I did it
Is that ribbon from a fabric store or some place else?
Walmart of all places lol.Not the shiny stuff,got that by mistake once. 50/50 cotton polyester like my old job uniforms
Right ribbon,wrong width
Trimming tools,cut carefully with a razor then scorch the edges to prevent peeling
Tucked in tight,and as I said,no hump on the overlap
Really hard to believe this started out once as that
12" wide 1" thick pine board from a sawmill with Formica for a top ,well you live and learn (ya hope lol)
Today was a day to sit and relax,doesn't mean you can't sand lol. Getting a few things together
Will do the cloth tape next
I think I can deal with that
Finally replaced the battery in my meter and checked the wiring harness versus the pups. The harness is two wire the pups 4. The tip on both kwik-plugs is positive and the color even matches. The ground is also in the same place but different color(who cares). Leaves a SC tap and shield ground on the pup side unaccounted for.I've never used these as single coils so no big deal there.If the shield grounds become necessary I can add those on the pup side.So all good to go all in all.Just need to get the cap I'll use.Even if I could use the one with the harness it was soldered too close putting the pots side by side. I don't care for that so will use a new one that actually has leads sticking out lol. Sigh,nice to accomplish a little now and then.Good night guys,
Started the first coat of Polycrylic on the sides. Because of compatibility issues have about decided on spray polyurethane for this ones body
Been saving a nice piece of tortoise pickguard material for something and thought MAYBE this but my scarf mark on the front from being frugal with materials ABOUT talked myself out of that
Round two, loaded the brush WAY to heavy
Yeh I think I'll let it ride tonight and yes, I realize it looks goofy working a guitar from a wheelchair!
A few holes and a swoosh of lacquer or poly and I THINK I'm done on this end
Time for neck work then fitting hardware,
Now the damn like button ain't gonna cut it here.You folks can type,right? LOL.Choosing a headstock overlay and yes do have a preference but opinions are welcome so COME on down!!!
What say ye? Hmmm?

This is how you get 12 tuners in 7" of peghead
