Great color! Do you have some lacquer to put over it? I'd like to see it shine.

put tape on the sides of the maple to do a natural binding like the chris broderick 7 string lacs (the black one)

My friend: I just had an argument with a girl I know. She was saying how it's unfair that if a guy ....s a different girl every week, he's a legend, but if a girl ....s just two guys in a year, she's a slut. So in response I told her that if a key opens lots of locks, then it's a master key. But if a lock is opened by lots of keys, then it's a shitty lock.

Really? I'm going to have to look into that. Thanks!

I don't right now. Tim still has the body but I'm going to drop by Monday hopefully for another update on the neck.

Yeah no doubt. But Tim told me about another technique of doing that but I forgot how so I will ask him next time
Natural binding is awesome and was part of the plan from the start

Taping the binding and staining the wood might result in stain penetrating the wood in the binding area, under the tape. It is possible to spray the binding first and stain the wood later. The binding is sealed this way.

I have to do the same thing in a few weeks.

Thanks. So just to get this straight, I should clear-coat the back and sides first, THEN stain? Tim told me something like that because just taping it wouldn't do it because it would still bleed through. If so, just a thin coat or a pretty heavy coat?

To do this I would tape up the front body and just spray on the lacquer, and let it dry. When it dries and I start the dying, tape up the sides, and apply the stain and the natural binding should be fine right? Also would I be able leave the tape on going from staining to bursting (after a period of drying of course) ? Sorry for all these questions but you guys know everything and I don't

i would say not too heavy a coat...and make sure you give it time to cure and seal up..that is a good idea though basically going backwards to do it.


im +10000000000000 to the 1st coat of black stain...that will totally make your grain pop..do a light coat, dont give it too much time to set in, sand it back, go back again with your purple...should give a real nice 3d grain effect..

Do you use water or alcohol for the dye? Be gentle on the sides. Too much water and it might bleed trough.

I read about someone who does it with a flower sprayer (don't know how to call it in english) You can spray water on plants with it ;-)
He said this prevents too much water penetrating the wood. He also said some colours are know to bleed through. I suugest you try it first on a piece off scrapwood. Better save then sorry!

I used water to mix the dye with. I will be extra careful when doing the edges. Also we picked up like a sprayer for the clear coat. Speaking of clear coat, what exactly is used to get that high gloss look? I though it was polyurethane or something

Also are you referring to the clear coat for the spraying thing or the burst

Thanks so much. I love your build so much.

+1. Seeing that color makes me tempted to try to do a purple finish instead of a natural finish with my Ibanez S series that I'm refinishing!

Neck update! I will be getting the body and neck back on Tuesday

Tim is really REALLY an awesome guy. The veneer started to separate because it was drying out and he is fixing it and he drew out the placement for the holes for my bridge and pickups so I don't screw up the important parts . And he also did the neck pocket free of charge as well. I cannot describe how awesome he is .

Less talk moar pics !











Cell phone pics but Tim assures me once it dries and he tung oils it, it will look 100x better.

The phases of the moon inlay are sick!

the body and neck look awesome so far.



So I'm guessing the neck is maple, but what's the purple stripe in it?
