  1. Thanks! The headstock caps are indian rosewood, but they had some nice orangeish spots that matched up well with the board (which may be cocobolo, but I doubt it because I'm super allergic to that). Sully
  2. Just finished up this Galaxy V, thought I'd share. Specs: 3pc maple neck thru/set thru into a mahogany body with maple cap. Rosewood fretboard, MOP hollow block inlays, stainless steel frets, rosewood headplate (and back) as well as matching truss rod cover. Tortoiseshell binding all around the guitar with ivoroid binding at the position markers. Pickup is a secret menu Habanero from Grover Jackson's Habanero Guitar Parts, volume knob is push/pull to split the coil, Gold floyd with big block upgrade from FU-tone and Hollow point intonation system. Urethane finish with the back of the neck satin. Sully
  3. Ah man, I hate paint right in its smug little paint face. Glad you got it sorted out. Sully
  4. Been following this on facebook; too cool!
  5. It's been called "the guitar that only a KISS fan would come up with."
  6. Back from paint (thanks Stike!) earlier this month. It's done now, but I'll need to get some better pix. Oh...had some picks made, too.
  7. Thanks Doug! Thanks! Sadly, the coloring is due to the instagram filter lol. It's as light in color as the top on the previous page. I just wanted to increase the contrast to bring out the figuring (wasn't near any naphtha at the moment). Sully
  8. It prevents rust, penetrates the threads and lubricates for the life of the rod, lastly it stops glue from sticking to them as well. I use old pickup potting wax (straight paraffin) in a small crock pot. It is a bit tricky because the wax won't flow until the steel is hot so you have to start by soaking the bolt end for about 15 minutes then flip them and soak the other end. Then one by one you have to take a heat gun and heat the middle of the rods until the wax flows down the rod. If the rod doesn't get hot enough the wax doesn't flow and stick and is a messy waste of time. Tricky yes. But over the years I have had one or two go bad from seizing up or glue seeping past my tape and I never want to run into that again if I can help it. Very cool, thanks man!
  9. Awesome, as usual. Thought the truss rod wax bath was an interesting idea. Is that to prevent any possibility of glue/epoxy getting into the threads? What type of wax do you use? Sully
  10. Sending the most recent one out for finishing today. Then I got started on the next one over the weekend. Found some Angel step maple, glued it up and then added to a nice blank of mahogany. This one may get a Floyd. (There's a bit of a filter on the body pic - kinda makes the mahogany not look like mahogany) sully
  11. thanks man! It can mess with your head and look a bit odd at first, but it's kinda fun. Sully
