    The finish still has a ways to go, but she is starting to shape up nicely.

    Been working on building a Slide from a small, scuzzy, piece of 3/4" Schedule 40 Stainless Steel Pipe.

    I left one side looking like I found it, polished-up the other.
    I ground-off part of one end for knuckle-comfort and left the Seam of the Pipe intact. The Seam makes it a lot easier to control.

    Wondered why I hadn't seen more of these made from Stainless.
    Now I know, its a pain to work with!

    It's just Sherwin LOVOC lacquer. In a month I'll blow the guitar apart for a cut and buff

    Thanks all :D

    No, its getting one of Lollars Horseshoe reproductions. I was lucky enough to score two of them before Rickenbacker threw a hissy fit and brought in the lawyers over a 1930's design that the patent ran out on years ago.
