    Hi All!

    Been browsing this forum for ages but finally made an account.

    Currently building my first guitar (Tele).

    Love music and good community in music.

    See you round :)

    Yeah amazing piece of Ash! I made a practise body out of Aussie timbers and it’s been chambered and it’s still heavier than the neck and ash body combined!

    more pictures to come but none of my projects move along quickly....

    thanks for the warm welcome

    Yes Sir!! That’s an amazing hunk of ash. Don’t do a solid finish- let some of that show through!!

    Welcome from sunny Arizona!!

    Wasn’t planning on it!

    Refinished and painted a couple of guitars now.

    Plan is to do a sunburst with angelus leather dyes after I give it a go on the test body I made.

    Wont be able to spray lacquer until spring/summer here so considering a wipe on poly for a nice thin finish.
    Just need to figure out how to bury a waterslide decal on the headstock.

    Well, my friend, you have come to the right place. And before you ask like so many before you, yes you should buy that guitar, yes you should swap pups, yes you should or should not apply ___ finish....
