    Got the first couple coats of Tru Oil on, which were more for finding any overlooked scratch marks. Drilled for the hipshot bridge, which went about as well as I could for not having a drill press. Decided to inlay a backplate for the ferrules because the string-thru holes, being hand drilled, were a little off. Got a little chip out from drilling for the ferrules, but it's being fixed. Also, will have to re-drill one, as it wandered... 1012211422_resize_84.jpg IMG_20211012_132255_494_resize_25.jpg 1012211312_resize_67.jpg 20211014_161943_resize_33.jpg 20211014_161940_resize_50.jpg 20211014_175352_resize_22.jpg

    Was going to edit the previous post, but I missed the time window. Anyway, here's some more pics:

    Really dig how the multi-laminate scarf joint turned out

    A little update on something different. I've had this old Rhoads stripped and primed for over two years now with multiple failed swirl attempts. I finally got tired of it sitting around in pieces and have decided to do a regular paint scheme. Some modifications were made, such as rounding off the square heel, and ebonizing the rosewood fretboard. The body will have the same fluorescent orange with the bevels painted black. As you might see from the pics, I am brushing on paint from those little testors model paint jars. Actually came out decently level. Had some problems with the black on the edges of the headstock so I'll have to do some touching up but other than that it's going well.

    Borrowed a Cricut and made a vinyl replacement logo, which I think came out really well.
