    Magnificent, Beautiful body and a lovely headstock form!

    How do you address porosity in the castings? When you finish a piece for a customer is any porosity acceptable? This issue is a struggle for me because I would like to eliminate every small defect, but maybe a small degree is acceptable like small knots in wood. I haven't encountered any voids that need filling on my guitar, but I have been peen hammering the small defects which becomes its own challenge for creating smooth surfaces. Paul

    Telecaster for a friend

    I really like the guitar colors and how the pick guard's angles are parallel to the angles of the guitar body.

    Yes, knew about the DrNo Skull, but I didn't realize how awesome the eyeball knobs were until now.

    This is fantastic! I like how you achieved such an organic form though your process. It is so cool that bronze can be realized by marring age-old processes with modern technology. The central form looks like something out of the Dark Crystal.

    Wow, this build is impeccable and possesses so many awesome design details. I have never really liked the flying-V platform until now.

    I am exploring of effect of resonance with my build with almost the identical theories you have. With my build I am hoping there will be a noticeable resonant frequency that will feed into "sympathetic vibrations" or harmonic oscillation. The reality is, the only true way to know the outcome is through building a complete guitar, there are just too many variables to speculate.

    That is an interesting video as well. I have not seen the tool that is used to do the first surfacing operation prior to the flywheel surfacing before. Foundry work is fun to watch, but there are so many elements of the process that make it very dangerous. I used to do pattern work on core boxes that belonged to a railroad foundry and I never envied the workers who had to do the iron casting. North of my house by half an hour is the Kohler headquarters where one can tour the different facilities form porcelain work to iron casting. Seeing them construct a cast iron bathtub is something to behold.

    Thanks Splintazert, That video does illustrate the exact process I followed. The only difference is my process is much sloppier and typically involves damaging whatever clothing I am wearing.

    I have been told by the Sikkens reps to not sand any finer than 600 between any coat of paint and especially prior to clear- so to achieve the greatest adhesion between coats.
  14. second that on the Delta Lectro- it looks like a Danelectro hooked up with a Gretsch and had a baby

    I can empathize with mistermikev as I am green on this subject as well. I purchased the stainless "straight ~8"-12" sticks" from StewMac, but I though I read that they didn't require pre-radiusing. This conversation shows I need to give this process some more preparation.
