    Carve turned out well. The burl causes optical illusions and make it seem rougher than it is in places.

    I am going to have to deal with the knots and inclusion at some point. I have new System Three epoxy to try on these.

    Thanks guys...

    Only thing I am not sure how to use the little 3 way switch thing...o_0. I wired it up to switch the pups. Seems like over kill. Any suggestions?


    j/k... :) ha ha ha.

    It is cool to hear an S9 with both pickups running (if you follow my builds you know I usually use a push/pull to switch the pups).

    Knots sealed and clear is going on. The constant thunderstorms have been a real pain as it makes it too humid to paint.

    Next year we will play who wants it first!

    Sick of the delays.... Weather has not been cooperating at all.... this hazy rainy summer shower thing is a pita.

    You can't spray lacquer when it is this humid.

    Finally the weather has agreed... nothing better then spraying lacquer in 100+ degree temperatures.
    More shots of a guitar getting clear... final buff coats went on today. After it cures we oiled the neck, buff, fret dress, and assemble.
