    Rabble rabble rabble... Another Elita run!

    Both look great, but I think I'd go with Pat's if I had to choose. :)

    Back from paint!

    My customer already has a Galaxy V with an oiled neck, so since this one was fully finished, I asked him yesterday if he wanted a satin finish on the back of the neck. He was down with it, so I knocked that out after leveling the frets:

    and then.... (noANDTHEN!) I noticed a smiley face in the grain. Cracked me up.

    Beautiful work! What did you use to rub the neck gloss down? Fine sandpaper and steelwool?

    I've got a bunch going on, but here are some highlights:

    I had a 1:1 build class last week, and my student built this in six days.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Since it was a 7 day class, I put her to work on day 7. Hooray for binding scraping monkeys!

    [​IMG]

    Carved top '71 #1 in clamps.

    [​IMG]

    And getting the heel contoured out. Because clunky heels are for jerks.

    [​IMG]

    This quilt topped '71 over limba body and neck...

    [​IMG]

    Then there's this one....spanish cedar body and a koa top. It has 2ply tort/white binding on the body, neck, and fretboard (once I get the fretboard inlays done)

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    And after a visit from our friend Mr. Naphtha....

    [​IMG]

    Here's a 1pc black limba chambered '71 with a figured Myrtle top. Neck is 3 pc very lightweight limba, tort binding, and will have a bois de rose fretboard with hollow block inlays.

    [​IMG]

    This spalted maple topped '71 was sent off to get the rest of the finish done...

    [​IMG]

    This quilt topped, floyded '71 is currently with Stike @ Rowyco Kustoms...

    [​IMG]

    ....as is this Galaxy V....

    There's a bunch more, but that's more than enough for now, eh?
