Starting on 2 new multiscale 7 strings.
Needed a switch knob for the Blackguard. I could order one but this is a cheap prototype so lets grab a piece of ABS and make a knob. Can't be that hard. I didn't use the drill press to drill the hole so the first 2 ended up being a bit crooked. After finally getting a straight hole I rounded it on the belt sander, sanded it with a 180 grit sponge and buffed it on the buffer wheel.
This is why I hate using CA for a sealer. Big yellow discoloration. There are also yellow streaks on the front and it gums up the sand paper really quick.
3 coats of clear before going to the color. This way I can level it before the burst without worrying about cutting through.
After leveling we get ugly.
Sanding out the red witch II.
Time for decals. No more water slide decals for me.
Lets get oil
Almost time for the 2014 version of this thread.
Getting some 54 strat clones built and a set of Quarterpounders (because of the .25" A5s)
Getting the control plate and pickguard fitted.
I am using stainless steel flat heads instead of philips because I want a vintage look.
Watching the clear dry on this one. I am going to scuff the surface tomorrow to help speed the process
Control plate for the Red Witch.
Time to assemble the Blackguard.
I have not found any lightweight .25" shaft knobs for it yet. I have got to have some somewhere...
The "tone bar" style string retainer was the last piece to cut out on the CNC. I am going to make the string cups smaller on the later models. Originally I was still going to use string ferrels but there is no point.
You're brave to use those tables for spraying.
I've got about 5 beers in my carpet from those shitty tipsy tables
Slightest bump = table takes a tumble.
My guitar would fall in the grass if I tried that.
Or worse, fall onto the cement.
Thanks for the warning. True. Those tables are useless for anything other than starting fires. However I charge extra for "relic" Teles...
See the box under the table. It has 2 heavy duty Jeep Cherokee coil springs in it.
I don't spray customer guitars hanging from them... beater telecaster prototypes are a different thing. Dents make them worth more.
PS: Don't drink the beer until you are done spraying. Its all about procedure.
Funny enough there is at least 1 bug in the finish. Perfect with the spread wings...adds to the mojo.
Don't spray outside.
Finishing up things for 2013
Working on a few sets of humbuckers.
