I really like #4
It's simple .. make 4 and keep the one that you like the best
made a few new covers out of the same wood...
I think I got the second one right.. the first one was a bit thin and I went too dark on the brown...
got a few 3mm x 1mm n50 magnets coming to try out for holding power.......
Sooooooooo nice Trev
I like the 3rd down from the top!
You nailed the color and the grain pattern is brilliant for that spot! It blends at the edge but follows the contour. Brilliant, for sure!
How about wiping them with some naphtha and posting those pictures? I'm leaning towards #4 as having the strongest flame and I'm assuming that you will do a traditional '59 'burst. There was a good article in Fretboard Journal a few years ago about '59 'bursts and had a number of pictures of different guitars. Some had absolutely stunning figure but some were pretty plain looking (if you can call a $200K guitar plain).
First of all, you need to do a way better job in jointing than what u have there....
i like # 4 if you move the fine tiger stripes to the belly of the guitar- you dont want those to be cut away by the neck pocket and pickup routings
I'm still waiting for a barrel jack... other than that, the finish is all that's left. I've filled most of the cracks, knots and bug holes with epoxy or superglue, sanded down to 320 and put on a light coat of shellac.
"Rings like a bell" is a tired old cliche, but this old pine really resonates a bit.
Pickups and bridge mounted. Still gotta wire it, mount the PG, finish the nut and TRC, plus it needs 4 more strings......
Yeah! That's the one Trev!
Actually those photos shows the maple tops with naptha on them, but the light does not help much for better photos.
Thanks for the link!
I was thinking of a river-style maple top filled with blue colored epoxy resin!
Totally #2. I can see the Charlie’s Angel in there!
must be Farrah
looks a little flat
Rob now you have me worried
Dear Buddha! We need more info on this! Black cherry is my all-time favorite finish. That looks stunning.
Admit it Helmut, you see her too!
Another bass! Swamp Ash Body. Birdseye Maple neck. Cocobolo fretboard.
