But they might breed!
Last coat on this Paisley for the night...and maybe forever...
Just wish it didn't have that little "issue" on the front.
Let's all take a quick trip to the Orion Nebula!
the birthplace of stars!
I once drilled a couple of holes to secure archtop top plate down (through where the pickup routes would be - no worries there) to shape it. Handy because it doesn't slip and you can work easily.
Then I did the same to shape the backplate . No pickup routes in a backplate!
That bass is looking good. Nice job buddy!
Speaking of routs, this one seems to be missing one or two, as well as having some "non-standard" ones
I hope they are on the back...but with me you never know...I'll have to check later.
Because it is bound and checkerboarded, I didn't do the tummy cut or the arm thing. It may be a bear to play. Sort of makes me glad I'm not the bass player.
The Sparklebarn Drying Room Annex filled up over the weekend.
I think the Band will have plenty enough sparklecasters to play...if I can get them finished.
Have I told you that the Band is Getting Back Together?
HI guys sorry to be off topic but how do i start my own thread im new
Can you spell: Sparklecabronicaster
(or maybe someone can come up with a better name...)
He! He! He!
So, had to play in the trivia league tonight...2nd place tonight, but we lead for the season...with a large enough lead that we could phone in next week and still win for the season.
Didn't have a lot of time to work when I got home, but did manage to do this...
what all do we see in this photo... 1)bass strings for the bass...because, after all, the band is getting back together! 2)a couple of bodies that just up in a box from USACG. Basswood. He made me an offer I could not refuse. 3)a bound, checkerboarded, and masked headstock
True Confession Time!
I have started to bypass the the intermediate clearcoat/glue step that I have used for several years.
Here is some pure black base coat.
Here's a base coat story. I killed off a pint of it a couple week ago. So I bought another pint. Just plain old ordinary PPG black. No metallics. No pearls. No fancy yellows or reds. $35 in U.S. funds. So there is probably about $0.75 worth in the cup...two spoonfuls. Boy howdy!
We will put a THICK coat of black base on.
we will sprinkle away...
right on to the fresh black base.
The idea being to stick so much gold flake (stripper dust if you prefer) to the fresh, wet black base coat, that the base coat could be ANY COLOR, any color at all, and it wouldn't be seen.
something like this.
Which is totally sick!
I like sick!
I thought you might think it was MAHV A LOUS
Just a few from tonight...
and with the tape off
B.T.W. you should get a small package today, or tomorrow....
