Kemp Guitars Thread 2020

Recommended Posts

I love the build quality of the Kemp guitars, at least from photos, never seen one in person.

you've obviously made your own templates, do you just use MDF or have you had them laser cut?

the reason I ask is that the bearing on my router bits always digs into the MDF making my cavities slightly larger than they should be.

Water down wood glue slightly and paint the edges of your Mdf templates then sand smooth, it will seal and harden the edges so the template doesn’t turn to smooth under your router

Thanks for the comments 😃

My templates are made myself from MDF. In terms of keeping them damage free, as @ADFinlayson said; watered down wood glue or thin CA 😃

Sorry dude, I missed your post. Yes, it's an odd colour. Looks very blood-like and almost orangey until it was sealed, now the red has popped and is awaiting clear coat. It will, however, be a matte finish in the usual Kemp style :)
