Gorgeous! Nice work!
Really nice, splendid in fact. Love it. Great work.
Very nice work-but I'm sorry, leather covers on guitars just look silly to me.
I'll take his please.
Do you have a picture of how you did the rest of the leather bound headstock?
I can barely tie the leather laces to my winter boots!!
In a nutshell I traced the outline of the headstock. Made up a pattern of flowery looking things. Tooled the pattern. To do the lacing I punched holes around the outside (about 5 mm from the edge) Dyed the leather then laced it. I use leather cement to attach the leather to both the body and in this case the headstock.
That's beautiful. Wishing I could move from designer to craftsman and make a living at it (not necessarily leather, just no corporate boss lying to the customer but sending us into explain when he gets caught).
Do those two ends get pulled together to hide the sides or do you make a small piece to fill that?
There are a couple of tricks to make several pieces of leather look like one continuous piece. On the headstock I thread the lace back through itself to finish the ends.
...don't know if that's the proper way to do it, but it looked good to me so that's the way I left it. Ha Ha Ha.
Your leather working skills are amazing as the chops I've heard
That is F'in COOL! ... Love it.
You drew the designs yourself then?
First leather worked headstock I've seen. Your work is too badassed. love it!
Hell bent and leather bound. Outstanding!
Being as Waylon's leather bound Telecaster/Broadcaster instruments were my original inspiration and such, this resonates with me - kudos on amazing craftsmanship.
Love the shot of the Waylon tribute - I did a crude version as a teenager that's pictured somewhere on the forum (overhauled a while back to look nicer).
That Tele would be perfect for me. I could just stand on stage, not even play, and get applause.
That's pretty doggone SWEET! This might out-Waylon Waylon's tele...
very cool !!!
