The lacquer has cured for a while now, so I can start handling it without too much care, or getting a headache from the evaporating thinners...
Got the Logo going, cut from a 2mm sheet of alu, then made smooth with needle files and sandpaper. Rounded the edges and polished to a high gloss. Don´t know exactly where to place it though.... Will decide later. Still some time before I can rub down and polish the whole guitar.
Hmmmmm..... Part 1
Hmmmm... Part 2
Still haunted with indecision concerning the pickguard. Don´t know what will look the best. You guys got any ideas or suggestions, you´re more than welcome.
I like both pickguard and logo #1 best
(Sitter själv och spånar på mitt första bygge, mycket inspiration här. Ruskigt snyggt!)
Man tackar, man tackar...... Får se hur det blir när den är klar. Mycket att göra än...
Välkommen till forumet förresten. Kul att du är sugen på att bygga. Bådar gott.
That pickguard is perfect.
Edit: just noticed they're not the same - I think they both look equally good.
Well, thank you. (Bashful) But which one? Full horn or thinline horn?
Logo one. Pickguard two (thinline horn).
Nice looking guitar.
Maybe Thinline - you get to see more wood.
Logo #2, Pickguard #1. But I'd rather see no pickguard and some other "logo-way" or matched wood plug to cover the wire route, and then let the wood show off.
pickguard I would try to find someone to do me one on this colour:
That is gorgeous!
Logo #1, Pickguard #2.
Tony from Pickguardian will shoot you a gold-backed plexi Gretschy guard if you want that look.
How about something like this?
I like the Thinline horn pickguard but I think something even smaller than that might work. With the wiring chase, yes, there must be a pickguard of some sort.
Definitely logo 1! And either pickguard 2 or no guard. . . my 2 cents
Pickguard, 1st try
Sometimes you just got to try something without thinking about it for too long just to be able to see how it turns out. Planning is good but it is better to see it in front of you instead of in your head.
I´ve worked from a regular Fender-guard that I ran through a copy-machine so I have about 20 of them on paper. Fooled around with different ideas, cutting off pieces here and there, trying different shapes but cant get to a final decision, so here goes.
Superglued the rough idea to the Plexi-glass blank (local hardware store, about 2 dollars..) and cut it out on the bandsaw. Then the boss shows up early, so it´s back to regular work.
Hope i can start fitting it tomorrow.
Btw, my Allparts-dealer never seems to get the control-knobs I want though I´ve been pestering them since January.
Anyone got a spare set of concentric dome knobs ? (Allparts 0137-010 I think...)
