Recommended Posts

Well, as some of you may have noticed is that I took quiet the internet break, and in the 2 weeks I've pumped up almsot two guitars, this is one of them. The other (superstrat) just needs the bridge posts and tuners drilled, which I'll do eventually.

The camera was gone for most of the time, so I was only able to snap these pics now, and one with an iphone a bit back.

no love?

Actually, I do. I saw this a couple of days ago and got pulled away before I got a post up. I love the chevrons on the top. How do you like working the Spanish Cedar? I've just used it for the first time and found it softer thatn what I'm used to. It worked easily enough....I just kept having to fix little dents. I hope it sounds good.

thank you, they came out perfectly this time. Its fine for me, it smells a bit bitter and dents very easily, and was taking oil a bit weird at first, and its more brown then 'normal' mahogany, but I'll get used to it. It's defiantly has a nice tap tone and is light.

I always loved not filling the pores with grain filler. it always looks so bad ass and natural. I'm pretty sure im wrong but wouldnt this allow the guitar to age and breath also once the finish shrinks a bit?
