Seeing how your last project came out, i'd gladly buy your guitars.
Seriously - you've got the magic touch, turning cheapo lumber into terrific looking axes.

....

at the weekend continued to work with an overlay. Made cuts to fret and put markers frets.

















All is fine, but small errors in the cut holes for the frets. Which proved to be quite profound.






Chances are we going to do tonew fingerboard.

Looks pretty fantastic man! I am going to be starting my first build soon and it will be a 7. Anyways, that sucks about the fingerboard man. Everything will turn out for the best though, your build is awesome to watch! Wewt!

You build looks great. I love wenge as a fretboard wood on guitars. It's overlooked for some reason. Keep up the great work!

Continued saga
Hammered frets (can anyone Interestingly more talk about this later pattern during)








And probably the most unpleasant thing happened.
I ....ed with the milling the holes for the pickups. And it turned out not very smooth opening
On the bass on the side of the neck pickup


It was decided to make a new form for pick-ups and close it all the plastic panel.





And my BKP for 6-string project))






And came out something like that


thanks for watching

A few preview photos of the final result.
It remains to apply several coats of tung oil. And solder all the gizmos.
Texture of the wood looks simply awesome live.
Did not expect such a result

Almost final version of the painting.
It sounds surprisingly cool. Although with Blackouts anything probably will sound cool.

finish

Actually, after a long pause ...
Completely removed from the tung oil and painted in a toxic red))) Ferrari))))
Fingerboard soaked in black.
By the sound - all of you advise blackouts.











And next to my 1527))











Overall - it's all very time-consuming work. But the result was worth it. For the price of everything was about 500 bucks.
I do not know how soon I'll start doing the next project, but it will be for sure))
Thank you all for your attention.
Stay djent
