Depends on how long you stay in one spot, how close you hold the nozzle, and what pressure you're using. I did a couple quick passes from a few inches to just rough it up and get that finish in the pictures. It's really easy to burn through, though. (At least on the squier CV bridge plate that I used it was, other bridges may have thicker chrome)
A super easy way to get the even bead blast look on a bridge plate or set of knobs would be to make an aluminum or stainless steel one and leave it unfinished. Then there's no finish to burn through.
EDIT: you can actually see a spot where I burnt through the chrome on the bridge plate in the picture that I posted. It's on the inside edge next to the high E string. In that crease along the lip.
Forgot to comment on this....body looks buttery soft.
I like the Rutters bridge. How did you dull it?
Nice hot rod pin striping.
Thanks......Acid fumes.....hit it hard and soaked in old engine oil.
More Barn worn than Rat Rod..............
Really like the wood color on this one....
My favorite finish.......Didn't have to do much. Wet and sand grain back a bit.....lil' bit of Boiled Linseed oil. Thanks.
If I may ask...Have you've bought that body somewhere or made/sanded it yourself ?
I'm willing to go about the same direction with my reliced & esquired CV50,
but think the wood (pine) will be to unprotected without the poly ???
Rat rod custom. I call it the Masonite Delight.
Very nice, I'm intrigued by the body, what is it? I've got an unused short scale neck and that body looks like it would be a good match.
I am always impressed with the different ways we guitar players modify/make/build our instruments.
My Rat Rod was a single coil Kay that I gave to a friend who had is Stratocaster stolen.
Very cool, I love it! Is that an oven knob on the volume pot?
I built this in 1970. My young son helped paint it,
The body is handmade from Masonite and pine, but was roughly based on the outline of a guitar called the Futura (not the Gibson by the same name).
Sure is. Set to Broil and you're ready to go. It also uses a can for printer toner (that has warnings about poison on it) as a pickguard. The pickup rings are from the rusty top of the can.
So far I haven't needed stitches while playing it, but the potential is there.
Thanks, for the reply. The body has the look of a fender musicmaster or a mustang body. I've been looking at them on ebay and they're a little pricey. I put a lot of parts together but haven't made my own body yet, that would take my diy to another level. Laminating might make it simpler to build a body.
I like your style
I remember those spirit duplicating machines, I probably shaved off a few dozen IQ points by sniffing the freshly copied handouts in junior high...
Boss! Love the know and the pickguard.
Thanks. I threw this guitar together in a week while my wife was out of town. I got bored and itchin' to make something and had a few parts lying around. The neck is from one of those super cheap Arbor guitars, but it plays great. Pickups are from a peavey T-15.
I took the tone control out of the peavey circuit. Would that change the super-ferrite's ability to be a single-coil/humbucker hybrid?
