Stunning. That beauty is saying "Australia" more and more.
I'm just inside after putting the 4th coat on. It is too dark for good pics now so here are some I prepared earlier..............after coat #3.
Hmm, they don't look that different from the ones before. I guess the next ones will be just prior to polishing tomorrow. Then the grand unveiling. Ooo I am excited. Hope I can sleep tonight.
Great work, beautiful wood!
Thanks, Walter Broes.
You should get an 8x10 of the stump, and an 8x10 of the finished guitar, and frame it above wherever the guitar will reside.
This is not only craftsmanship, but exquisite art.
I admit that I wasn't sold on the wood you selected initially, but it is turning into an absolutely gorgeous instrument. It's been a pleasure to watch your project come together.
And again, and again!!
I smell a winner.
that grain still astounding.
I wasn't 100% happy with the wood when I began because of its defects but I new the timber would look good finished. Thanks for your comments.
Thanks, robt57, oigun, Customisbetter and Maricopa.
Aussie Aussie Aussie!!! Beautiful. Australia for the WIN!
I sanded and sprayed a few times today and I think I am slowly working out how to spray lacquer properly. I then sanded flat the headstock and kept enough lacquer for one more headstock spray to cover this.....
Who needs decals when your wife is a stamper. I got my own custom headstock stamp.
What colour? This one.....
My wife being more able in this area than I stamped it for me.
How does it look? The tension builds. Has it worked? Yes, of course.
The model number is added in a similar manner.
Then it was off to the garage for the final spray. Now it looks like this..
