  1. Thats pretty much answered it... i knew that candy spray was a transparent, but i've seen some guitars on here which have used candy spray and didn't show any woodgrain. I'm not that knowledgeable on paints and finishes so it is pretty much the same thing for all paint finishes? clear sealer underneath for a show of woodgrain and primer to not show the woodgrain. I imagine this is pretty basic stuff, but i just wanna confirm.
  2. What has to be done to ensure that the grain of the wood does or doesn't show through a coloured finish... i thought it was all about what you used for the colours, however i noticed some guitars finished in candy spray paint that do show the wood grain and some finished in candy spray paint that don't show the wood grain so it can't be the coloured finish. Is it the used of a primer that does it? Any help is appreciated Cheers.
  3. The routed area for a truss rod... is it the same depth the whole lengh? or does it need to curve down? (does anyone have a sort of cross section picture of a guitar neck... real pic or diagram) cheers.
  4. How do i create these? it it done with a very very thin piece of dowel?... if so, what size dowel (and thus drill bit) is used (and where could i buy dowel that small?)
  5. Just a quick question, (i'm trying to learn as much as possible before i attempt to make a guitar) [url="http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/d/d9/J0191.jpg"]http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/d/d9/J0191.jpg[/url] I take it this is the soloist style body, was the guy asking how a 1/4 maple top could be applied ontop and bent downwards over the 'slope' at the bottom of the guitar body for the arm (so the top would remain the same thickness at the way though which wouldn't occur with sanding it) am i right? (i know its an old thread and not so much a question but a confirmation, but like i said, i'm 'revising')
  6. Thought so, cool Cheers for that, dw, i've been reading up on stuff for a couple of years, but due to a lucky increase in finance, i may actually be able to make it so i'm really reading everything and going through stuff with a fine tooth comb now. Won't be starting anything until the summer anyway
  7. Sorry if i sound stupid, i've only started planning to make my own guitar. the style of guitar i'm making is a fender style... a guitar with a low bridge, does a guitar with a low bridge really need the neck angled?
