  1. No problem, I'm always happy to help I would recommend SprayMax 2k clear coat, assuming you're after something in a spray can. It's proper 2k (there's a small cannister of hardener within the main can which has to be released prior to spraying) so cures rock hard but you will need a decent mask and ventilation. Not sure where you are located but it's available on eBay (amongst other places) in the USA and Europe. Sadly no YouTube channel... I'm too shy to stand in front of a camera
  2. Been making a bit if dust in the shop the last couple of days. Got myself some American Walnut and Black Limba to play around with - full reveal coming soon...
  3. Thanks dude. I use Polyurethane clear coat as a sealer nowadays
  4. ... In the meantime, getting this one ready to ship shortly... Custom SS with Quilted Maple drop-top on Alder body, Flame Maple bolt-on neck, Ebony fretboard with Blood Basin Jasper dots, Gotoh TOM and 381 Magnum Locking tuners, Seymour Duncan Custom 5 (bridge)/Distortion (neck) pups and that red-black burst matte finish
  5. Yes, the famous lion blanket. Can't get rid of that now, it's been with me and my online updates for some years now Regarding the V, that one is ready for paint but I'm waiting for better weather/temperatures at the moment (it's decided to get wintry cold here again) as it's gonna be a Nitro finish. Won't be too much longer I hope
  6. TBH, I never use tinted clear coat and have no knowledge of what can be done in terms of mixing spray cans for you other than standard solid colour 1k acrylic paint (like Halfords, U-Pol stockists, etc). Ask around. Failing that, you might have better luck with Nitro trans/semi-trans cans.
  7. That finish looks awesome and the stain colouring in the Poplar top reminds me of Buckeye Burl... Love the natural back too. Awesome work dude
  8. Spraymax 2k cans are available on eBay and is top quality (German) stuff ... but you can't tint it :(
  9. Sorry for late response but thank you very much... And your build is also looking great!!!
  10. I'm no CNC or headless guy, but that is some super work
  11. Well, this custom SS has turned out really well IMO and I am wishing I don't have to give it up, but it is almost ready to make it's way to a new home as soon as I receive the Seymour Duncan Custom 5/Distortion set I ordered... Full gallery photoshoot coming later this week
