  1. Great looking stuff man. Almost makes me want to start a bunch of new builds!
  2. Thanks man! Fortunatley there was almost no waste. The way the veneer was cut happened to work perfectly with this shape. I knew what i was doing with it before i even bought it! I plan to do a green to blue burst on it. It kind of looks like scales, so hopefully it will look dragon like.
  3. Still havnt done much work lately. Funny how other areas of your life affect your passions. Finally got around to working on this one.
  4. Indeed she is, indeed she is.
  5. Havent done much work lately. Buffed the green and the purple EXP. I also got the punisher EXP shipped to its new home in california..
  6. A couple of update pics. Man, these kind of colors are really hard to photograph. The purple especially. I cant get a straight on shot of it.
  7. Not always. Up until this point about half and half. But from this point on, im going to stick to tinted clears. They offer much more uniform color. Zebrawood really doesnt take stain evenly and the lighter parts almost completely resist it.
  8. I use a small spray gun for the burst, a full sized one for the color and clear. I actually need to get a new one. Its about 8 years old .
  9. The sealer is polyester and meant to stick a little better, which i assume will help. Scott, i did burst it, i just didnt take a pic of the headstock after i did a black burst. I'll take some more pictures today.
  10. Progress has been slow, but its finally warming up here. I was able to get this sealed and the color sprayed, plus black burst. I think i finally found a sealer that works.
  11. Wow, i didnt even know about that. I didnt build that guitar with it. That was the second owner of the guitar and he must have done it in the past few days! Thanks for the heads up!
  12. Must be a different builder you are thinking of, ive never used any kahler stuff.
  13. Ok, here we go! Picking up where i left off from last years thread: The only thing i have to show for this year is this neck blank. Walnut, paduak and cocobolo. Im waiting for some maple veneer to come in, so it will give a crisper line between each of the woods.
  14. Happy new year everybody. I havnt done much lately. Been going through a rough patch in life and just lost all motivation to work on anything, it makes me way too anxious. Plus i just hate winter and it throws off my mood. I finally got around to finish sanding a couple of guitars, but nothing else really productive. I cut some 7 piece neck blanks up today and they are about ready for gluing, but thats it. Should i start a new thread or should i keep it going on this one?
