    The P-90 and coming soon bodies are from Mario at Guitar Mill.....It took some time to get them.....but worth it......I'm not one to get into the tapping the wood and all that....I don't have the smarts or the ear(I was a tanker in the Army) but you can crack your knuckle on the tops of these pinebodies and they have their own sound to them.

    Goal is to cut my own....but I gotta say....between Jaydawgs "Naughty Pine" and Guitar Mill.....I have to recommend these guys.

    I had a one little glitch with Guitar Mill no big deal other than a delay in getting the P-90 out to customer....but Mario more than made up for it.


    Jaydawg just absolutely took care of me on the Ol'Yeller Naughty Pine....What a freakishly fun guitar!!! And yes....its Yeller.:lol:

    First wet sanding and some buffing.......

    We are lookng at options....I kinda got in a mind frame that a player should do his own thing as far as play wear and aging....I can/could never use the "R" word sometimes.....I get it....it feels good in your hand.....nice tastefull rub in the forearm area....nice worn in neck.....it just feels good and its comfy.....and I gotta say makes for a nice playing guitar......so,we may go that way....and I now know why a "relic" job is most often a upcharge......it's gonna pain me to "know" end(knowing first hand ;))....with the prep and finishing and sanding....all the while not donking up these pine bodies........after all that,start smacking it around.......its tough.

    Looking good. [​IMG] It took me a while to put two and two together but I think I've got it now. Glad to see you're not planning anything goofy for these guitars.

    Love it! The knobs are cool in the middle of the plate like that! I like the comfortable, worn-in relic look as well, rather than a beat-up relic look. Nice job.

    Thank you....I like the knobs with that layout also.
    The aging was harder than any thing else....and way more
    time consuming than I thought it would be.

    That's one of the better relicing jobs I've seen- really, really gorgeous build.

    Thanks Guys.....It feels really good.I hope its exactly what he wanted.This was a nerve racking build for alot of reasons.....but it was worth it.As always,keep learning something each time......stop and ask questions...proceed with caution.

    Filtertron is up next.....no takers on it....so gotta get a game plan on color and or stain.

    I love the Filtertron mock-up (even if I'm not so crazy about the gold hardware)! I've actually been reading up on Filtertron style pick-ups ever since I saw your original post. What kind are you planning to use? And are you going to do a mounting ring like the mock-up or a body mount?

    Can't wait for pictures!
