Finished scraping the front of the binding.
So I FINALLY got around to getting my garage heater hooked up. Now I can continue my guitar building adventures.
There were a few trouble spots on the body so I sanded off all the paint, addressed the issues, and started over.
I'm still doing the gold on the front but the back will be metallic charcoal duplicolor. I taped off the bindings, sprayed the back, and removed the tape.
That can cure for a few days and then I'll do the front.
I also picked up a can of the spray max 2k urethane. Allen gets such good results with it I figured why not give it a shot? It's stocked at one of the local Napa stores so I can get it anytime.
Hey Brian , looks good
Love the gold!
Thanks Herb & Rob. It's good to be back at it. Darn Canadian weather!
Looking great! I really like that belly cut. the neck heel and all the lines flow together beautifully!
Good to see yo back on your project Brian. I sure know what you mean about our winters but with that heater, there is no stopping you now! Enjoy yourself in your new heated place! The charcoal is looking great.
Thanks very much guys.
Been busy but I finally got the color all sprayed and the binding scraped.
I emptied one can of the 2K onto the body. I'll probably need another one on there. I'll let it cure for a couple days then I'll scuff it up and do some more coats.
If anyone decides to use this stuff make sure you use a decent respirator! Ya don't want to breathe in any of it!
Picked these up a couple weeks ago.
The Ridgid one has pretty good reviews. It'll be nice to use real router bits!
Looking good Brian , yea , that 2K is some bad stuff to breath in . Nice routers , I have the big Ridgid , its a good router , so is the Colt
Yeah Herb, the routers are great.
I wet sanded and polished this a couple weeks ago. Started assembling tonight. I just need to order pots and knobs.
Looks great! Is the neck pocket angled?
Looking mighty fine Brian. I like that color.
Thanks Glen, yeah the pocket is angled at ~2.5 degrees. I can't remember the exact angle but it's back in the thread somewhere.
Thanks Richard. I'm not sure if I'll use duplicolor again. It went on kind of rough and you can see the roughness through the clear. It might have been simply too cold. Next time I do a solid color I'll get Napa to mix me up a spray bomb. Those lay down a bit better from past experience.
Wow... that's what I call a comeback!
My uncle who is a great painter and an expert has said that acrylic lacquer is the way to go for metallics. I'm sure Napa can do that for you.
