It’s just begging for flake Marty!
I use a brass brush to remove that ùmxvck^pz goo left on the files by aluminium. It won't damage your files, but it is annoying to get rid of.
This is starting to look really cool!
Sorry I'm not a huge fan of flakes or blue guitars.
Yep, I have a brass brush as well, I think I'll just use my old set though anyway.
Covers. I drew a couple for the pickups and used the old tombstone shading trick for the control one.
I stuck them to the scrap pickguard material and cut them out.
I sanded them to the line and a smidge more. First the control one.
Then it was on to the pickup covers and I realized after the first one that I made them 4.5" long instead of 4.75, so I redid the drawing, the print out, and the cut out for them.
And sanded them too.
I couldn't resist drilling a few more holes for the pickups and pickguard.
Very cool! I love watching this build, thanks again for the thread!
Thanks for watching!
Last few details.
Dots on the side of the neck were drilled and glued with the green duco cement. I used 1/16" plastic rod from stewmac I think.
Covers got drilled and countersunk for tiny humbucker ring screws.
To do list; make and attach or just put on a pre-made jack plate, attach the tuners, and drill for and attach strap buttons. I started this Feb 14, so not bad for a month worth of work here and there.
Very nice, Marty. Looks like a fine guitar. It should sound interesting.
Great build,always something new to learn from you Marty!
Thanks guys, I appreciate it!
