I like it for some reason. I don't like the sharp cut ends though...
So, I mentioned that these 2 builds are gifts for my best friend's Son and daughter. But in a perfect world, it would have been 3 builds. My friend lost a son, Sam, a few years ago. His family is as much apart of ours as anyone . So, I had to do something to honor Sam. So each guitar will be getting one of these neck plates.
Love you and miss you every day Sam.
Wow. Good on you Robert. Sorry for the loss.
Next comes the fret end bevel and dressing.
But first the dog and I need to get our afternoon siesta in.
Hope you enjoyed our 1 week of spring...lol.
It has been some great weather. Actually started riding my bicycle again. Feels good to be out and about .
Got a bit of sealer sprayed in my basement. The nice thing about using water based lacquer.
After the sealer dries I need to grain fill the bodies.
Which water born lacquer are you using, Guns?
I use the Target Coatings stuff. EM1000 sanding sealer and the EM6000 top coat. I just got an email the other day about a new product of theirs, a water born dewaxed shellac. I may order some just to see how it works.
Just about done with the color coats on the swamp ash. Mary Kaye (ish) / dirty blonde. The edges need a little more and the top and back maybe a quick pass.
Water slide decal day. For some reason, it took me longer than usual and a couple attempts. Not sure why but they are on now. Mörhult is the name of a small area outside of a small coastal village in Sweden called Fjällbacka. So, one neck is named "Ingrid". Ingrid Bergman had a summer home on one of the islands just of the coast near the town. This neck is going on the swamp ash body. Fitting for dirty blonde.
The other neck is named "Badis". It is named after a much loved and hated local bar / restaurant/ nightclub. A fitting name for a p90 rock guitar.
They both look great. Love the wood, love the decals/font, love the names.
Sanded (micromesh 1500 to 12000) and polished. A couple of small spots on the ash body where I sanded through the color. Reliced, Close enough for rock n roll.
Next up, attach hardware to body. Then get the neck set up and attached.
Started attaching some bits. The bridge on the orange one came with really bad screws. So I need to take a trip to the hardware store to get some better ones.
Moving along. Who can resist a quick mockup.
Next up is to install a nut on each neck and get the necks attached to the bodies.
Looking good .
Also a very nice way to honor your friend's son with the neck plates.
Something about the hips on those, a little off or something
They have a bit of girth on the bottom. The curves from the bottom up to just above the bridge cavity are / supposed to be symmetrical. Design is not my area of expertise. But I like the way they are turning out and that is really all that matters.
