Acousticraft Posted December 2, 2006 Report Share Posted December 2, 2006 (edited) I thought about and made up a jig for rotating a guitar while you spray it. It can be rotated to any angle for convenience. The jig is simple with 2 brackets that can be screwed to a table and a headstock mount which is 1/4" rod and uses two tapered bushes that fit through a tuner hole. They are locked in place by a nut and washer on each side. The body end has a 3/16 rod with about 1" turned down to 1/8". A fractionally smaller hole is drilled in the tail pin location and the rod tapped home. To remove it just clamp a pair of vice grips on and pull it out. The vice grips are used to turn it as well. I used it when I sprayed my semi-hollow body guitar today and it worked a treat. For masking and sanding work it is excellent as well. I found spraying in the flat position you could put a nice wet coat on without runs although I did manage that on the peg head so will sand back and redo that piece. For the curious the body is mahogany and chambered and has a curved profile block added to the centre block front and back with a 1/8" maple skin glued front and back. You cant tell from the pictures but it looks just like a arch top. http://i54.photobucket.com/albums/g111/One...29Image0064.jpg Edited December 2, 2006 by Acousticraft Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
