  1. You need a metal surface for powder coating, so a guitar body won't work. Also, the heat needed to cure it would probably cause the wood to crack, if not when it gets hot, then when it cools down and the powder coat would flake if you could even get it to stick at all.
  2. Don't know where you got that it was CNC made, I've never owned a CNC in my life. I worked in machine shops with CNC, but I sure don't have one. It's hand made
  3. What the heck, I submit for your viewing pleasure: Shane Regals Leviiathan "Mrs Butterworth" (get it, cuz of all the maple ) Specs. Ash body with 7/8" thick Flame maple top. Flame maple fretboard and headstock overlay Hard rock maple neck Dunlop 6105 fretwire Dimarzio Evolution neck and bridge Graphtech Piezo system, total stereo seperation (can run it to 2 seperate amps, or both together) Gold side dot inlays. 11 coats of Clear 2 Part Polyurethane Laser etched truss rod cover and battery cover (ash cavity covers) Electronics cavity http://pics.lgmguit
  4. I'm waiting too. Sadly I haven't had time to get work done much less take pictures, with some luck once I'm in the new shop I'll be able to do so.
  5. I'm not nuts, I'm simply entitled to my own opinion. What I don't like about how the lamination ends there is that it kills the curve of the body. If it had been carved into more of a compound curve, like the tummy cut on the back, I'd probably like it more, but it's the straightness of the line interupting the flow of the curve around the body that bothers me. And true, I don't like laminations in a body like that, I think it looks like mistakes more than planning, but again, that's my opinion, doesn't make it right or wrong though. I like the way the laminations work on the tummy cut, it
  6. Had to give my vote to Stew for the police guitar. Here is why, forgive me for being harsh, but after reading nothing but praise on some of these instruments I'm going to be straight. The police guitar, though probably not the most complex instrument here, is different, graphics aren't done often, and I liked the concept and the execution looks very well done. De-Fre's SG guitar. Well, first, I don't like SG's, but I don't take that into account. What did strike me as poor was the cutaway's in the horns, perhaps it's in the picture's, but they look very rough. Also, the piece of ma
  7. I did some searching after the recent thread with Cocobolo wood, and found this chart, some interesting stuff I didn't know, there's a couple woods I'm going to be a hell of a lot more careful with now, that's for sure!!!! http://www.cs.rochester.edu/u/roche/rec.wood.misc/wood.toxic
  8. More than a Mexican Strat, less than an original 59 les paul In the end, after he gets the clear and everything done, he'll have spent about $10,000 Canadian on the paint. The clear is being done at the same body shop who did the prep work on it.
  9. Yup, it will be cleared in the end, as for it being a bit much, I love it, and to each their own
  10. 4. Now take a curved stencil (I made a few out of photo paper and solvent proof airbrush stencil material) and start to crisp up your pattern, start doing some filling in and start to build the fire pattern. http://pics.lgmguitars.com/pics/SSR/stencil1.jpg http://pics.lgmguitars.com/pics/SSR/stencil%20and%20red.jpg http://pics.lgmguitars.com/pics/SSR/stencil2.jpg 5. Then I goofed and didn't take a picture, but after you lay out your first stencil set, spray the entire thing with a Kandy Tangerine same as you did with the Kandy red. 6. Next, using chrome yellow, start to brighten
  11. Here's some pics for you on the current project in the shop, a 2004 Chevy SSR. Yes, I know it's not a guitar, but the same principles apply! 1. First step was to sand the entire truck with 800 grit, this was actually done by the body shop that will be clearing it (due to lack of a full size booth at my shop) http://pics.lgmguitars.com/pics/SSR/prep.jpg 2. Then using Moly Orange, lay out a loose pattern for your fire. http://pics.lgmguitars.com/pics/SSR/map.jpg http://pics.lgmguitars.com/pics/SSR/map2.jpg http://pics.lgmguitars.com/pics/SSR/map3.jpg 3. After your pattern
  12. as far as I know the minijet is only an HVLP gun, but you can still set the pressure higher and use it as a conventional gun
  13. $100 isn't bad if they lay on a nice coat, when you consider the clear is around $300 a gallon. However, when it's just coats after the car is done, seems a little high, especially when you have to do the final sand and buff. Oh, under NO circumstances should you color sand this stuff, I don't get why people ever color sand anything to start with but do NOT color sand Kameleon paints. Usually most body shops charge $50 when they're doing it along with a car.
  14. geez, this is embaressing now LOL, a thread gets started about my guitar being in GOTM and it's got the least number of votes in here can I forfeit and save face now LMAO!!!!!
  15. you can use nitro, but I don't recommend it at all, especially with the chameleon paints, they are developed specifically for use with the 2 part urethane, if you can't clear with that yourself take it to a body shop and have it done. The nitro will mess with it more than it's worth.
