    Damn I think I need this. Should have showed me this earlier now that I have added laquer to it Gonna need to do some sandback then.
  2. Mr_Riddlers build thread

    Sounds like typical sorcery.
  3. Mr_Riddlers build thread

    Daamn that is black, what kind of sorcery is this?!
  4. Mr_Riddlers build thread

    @ScottR that's about it, a couple of souls in return and the deal was done. @Prostheta Do you got any examples of this? Google wasn't that useful in this case.
  5. Mr_Riddlers build thread

    That's true, It did get that hellish look i was aiming for with the cracks and chunks missing in the black paint. Obviously the perfect blues guitar

    Thanks guys glad to hear that you like it. As promised some more pictures how it looks at the moment. Just got the neck glued in but got some sanding and stuff left. The neck is Swedish oak and padauk. But unfortunately it got an aesthetic issue. Didn't do that much thinking when cutting the pieces for it and the centre piece is a little to wide. Which made the padauk peak out on one side when cutting the taper. It Bothers me a alot but it's an easy fix, will just paint the neck solid orange and red and of course add a crackle finish to that as well.

    Thanks, I need to redo some parts of the crackle because it didn't crackle as much as I wanted thank God it's really easy, just need an exactoblade and rip it of like plastic sheets. It does remind me of the Etna build also! That build is one of the nicest I have seen on this site 😁

    Been kind of slow work the last couple of weeks. A lot of snow and really cold weather don't really get you to excited to work in an unheated shop. But I have managed to get some progress done. Here is a little sneak peak of the progress hopefully I can add some more pictures of it during the week.
  9. First Build, so many lessons learned

    yeah there is a lot of work if not using a hole saw, But absolutely possible, but I would just buy one

    Use a holesaw for the template.
  11. Stratocaster build

    Well that happens all the time, when you'r'e busy building you usually forget that part.
  12. Mr_Riddlers build thread

    Ah! I see what you mean, don't think that would be an issue, but will add some drops of CA just to be on the safe side.
  13. Mr_Riddlers build thread

    @Skyjerk Thank you Sir! @Prostheta Thanks for the gesture but I will stop by the local supplier, It's just next door to my daily work. They usually have some great stuff laying around, hopefully they got a piece i can use for testing, I keep you posted if it's a dead end

    Thank you for the kind words! Never tried the resin to hold down frets, but I think it's possible. the resin turns rock hard when cured, hard as CA or even harder. The downside is the curing time of 24h so I don't see the point of using it for frets or am I missing something?
  15. Mr_Riddlers build thread

    Thanks, it's just carved in the fretboard, added some stain and filled it up with epoxyresin.
