Definitely not loud yet... but looks promising.
Please forgive me for being the village idiot here, but what is DPP?
Lookin' awesome, Rex. I was trying to remember where I saw this color before, then it hit me:
Keeps getting flatter and flatter. Unfortunately I found a tiny fiber in the finish on the first coat this morning so I'll need to let it sit a day and scrape that off before proceeding. What a blessing to be in no hurry on this. I'm loving retirement.
It became Loud after he painted it.
Rex, you might want to retire that paint stick after this job. It would be a sin to paint over it.
Ha, I saved the pieces of masking tape I just removed from the pickup cavities - couldn't bear to throw them away.
I'm kind of cheap - how about I just turn that paint sick over so at least a little bit of the DPP coating gests protected face down in the neck pocket of the next body? Or maybe it will only be used for clear-coat finishes from here on out?
Hmmm, hmmm, hmmm, tap, tap, tap...
Thanks for this thread...I was looking for something different to paint a new Explorer build/assembly...
the Roth website was just the ticket.
I will probably use their spray can rattle bombs, though.
All the finish is on the body. I plan to let it sit at least until the end of July, but maybe later. No need to finish the body before the neck, right?
Somewhere deep inside of me there is a frustrated chubby 3 year old in overalls face down on the floor all red-faced kicking and screaming..... The sparkly pink ice cream cone, it’s just.. out.. of.. reach.....
Well Rex, is it hard yet? uh, um, er the lacquer I mean...
I was looking at their metal flake rattle bombs. Had anyone tried those, vs Reranch?

wow, that is looking great... and my elbow hurts.
Not only is the lacquer drying nicely, but it is still looking super smooth. There is no sign (YET) of it shrinking down to the point of starting to get "lumpy" again. I think this is going to be a really successful first sparkle. That's the good news.
The bad news is I have not (as grandma would have said) "hit a lick at a snake", WRT getting the neck built for this axe. I got involved in another new non-guitar woodworking project in my shop, and along with my new garden and a bunch of other hobby commitments I have become a worthless luthier! But I shan't remain one forever, I promise. I have three unfinished guitars to knock out in addition to the DPP, a custom build for an actual famous rock guitarist, a major PRS refinish for a fighter pilot friend, and maybe a few specialty bodies in response to my new vendor status. But other than that and maybe buying the house next door to do a major floor-to-ceiling renovation on the whole bloody thing, I am pretty much just lounging in leisure.
This retirement business is easy-peasy.
EDIT: If in reading the above I sound at all like a jack@$$, that was not what I meant.
It is amazing that once you retire, other 'stuff' expands to fill your available time.
Can you put on your business card, "Luthier to undisclosed famous rock guitarist?"
Want a neck?
It's the one on the right. First neck I ever made. I had sprayed it using some behlens amber but it came out to orange. So I stripped it using lacquer thinner. Never been attached to a body. Needs some clean up / fret work but isn't too bad. It is yours for the asking.
Wow Rex! You get the whole house next door as a shop? That’s awesome!
