  1. any negative effects? will the lacquer mist freeze in the air? i don't have anywhere to spray but outside in the cold.
  2. cool, what kinda prep work should I do to make the lacquer adhere correctly?
  3. i guess i'm just used to being around CNCs at school yes that's where i got it from
  4. I just received a pair of $25 brass pickup rings for my bass. yes it's $25 PER ring and it's that expensive because no one else makes them now I need to know how to clear coat them. anyone have any experience clear coating metal? or is this even necessary? how do hardware manufacturers do it? here's a pic of the thing http://upload.theopenjam.net/files/IMG_9513.JPG thanks a lot!
  5. for some reason the pictures in the 5 string bass pictorial is not working I want to pull the frets on my bass, and would just like to get a scoop on how to fill the fret slots. I know I use laminates, but how do I trim the excess off? thanks...
  6. it's the mike mushok (of staind) model. comes with a gibraltar 3 bridge i think order through ibanez
  7. i see. i'm looking for a more technical book. most of the sites i came across on the web are too refined, and i'm willing to learn the more technical aspects of guitar building What exactly do you mean? CMA stuff like finding out the location of the frets using math, finding the pickup sweet spot, etc. most of the sites i run into tell you exactly when you put your frets depending on your scale, but what if my scale is something like 28"? I want to be able to calculate the locations myself.

  10. [quote name='LGM Guitars' post='15606' date='Jul 27 2003, 12:24 PM']Step 7, ok, last step (hmmmm, and 7? LOL) while you were ordering from stew mac, you can order some swirl remover, I like to apply it with the foam buffing pad you can buy and chuck in your dril. . once you've got it all polished with the swirl remover, leave it sit another 3 or 4 days, then, put your guitar back togehter, and enjoy it.[/quote] no buffing? when is buffing required and will using those high grits (6000 and on) have the same effects as buffing?
