I knew a guitar builder/wrangler from Lancaster that was so cool he looked down on everyone when it came to guitars. He's a damn fool because he'll never know everything he could.

I'm up to about 6 coats of sanding sealer now. I've got it hanging to dry between coats.



I'll try to get 2 or 3 more on tonight then move it inside for the next few days to cure real good before I start sanding it for paint. I'll have Friday through Sunday to paint and lacquer then I'll start LC0002.

Completely forgot to spray the head stock while I was building layers on the body. And the end grain where the fret board drops to the peg head is v thirsty.....



{I still miss her)

I got a couple coats on when I realized I'd forgotten, and I'll do one more before bed. I don't think it's the end of the world, just inconvenient. I think that little part would be ok with not much finish sanding, being that it's mostly flat to start out. I wish the seam down the middle of the body would fuck off already...

Fill it with paint, sand it down, it'll be fine when everything else is painted.

You're nearing the end, maybe you're starting to second guess stuff.

I'm hoping that when I sand it back, it will fill in, and then paint will cover. Plus I'll be doing a bajillion coats of lacquer

But for now... And the immediate future....

Keep the Conch coming


This is you



This is us




And here's a rooster

It would do double duty with a bass skin of Buddy Guy, too.

some people wondering the same thing as me-- did he get his guitar idea from Buddy Guy?

Here we go!



Back yard paint booth... Kinda


Hanging the body and neck

I'm just painting the face of the head stock.

Test spray to check the color and spray pattern.


It's round, which isn't ideal, but this is pretty ghetto anyway, so...

Edges first, holding the body by the stick, then I'll hang it and give the body a light coat.

First, a little liquid courage


Just a little. Lite.


Eta: I sanded the pieces with 220, wiped it down then 320, wiped with a damp sponge to get as much dust off as I could, let that dry 30 min and then wiped with a tack cloth right before painting it.

It's so blue

Or is it green?



That little seam is absorbing the paint, but I think it will fill it in as I proceed through coats

45 minutes later, the second coat



Time for a quick nap. (the best part of vacation is naps at will)
