  1. Man... When Pat sims from sims custom shop, where I am currently working finishes a guitar, he takes a guitar un-grain filled and un-sealed, shoots 2 sealer coats of sealer and blocks them each out between coats. this totally fills the grain and gives a perfectly level surface to clear over. Then 3 coats of clear and water-sand and buffing... The right way to paint a guitar. No messing with grain fillers. Use a poly sealer blocked in between.... check out www.simscustomshop.com
  2. AN update. Got her polished out. Here she sits minus strings. I am having her Plekd next week in Nashville. Comments, Suggestions?
  3. Update : New Chrome Headstock Logo 2nd Sealer coat
  4. Same color of blue? I think its gonna need another coat
  5. Update Got the stains put on, and glued in the neck. Black Stain cut back Do you think this top is really going to pop once it's cleared? Im worried that the black is a touch un-even, and some of the figure isnt showing at every angle. Comments Suggestions?
  6. Got the inlays sanded flat, the body and top sanded to 220, made the dishouts. Now I have to shim the neck and then stain the top, and glue neck in, fret the neck, and finish the guitar.
  7. LOL i think you guys are correct. Hey my neck pocket is a little looser than planned, is there a way to shim on the side of the tenon to prevent like 3mm movement? If so, how and what is the best way to alleviate this issue.
  8. Hey guys heres an update. Got alot done this weekend. basically everythign that you see here was accomplished between friday.sunday night. I havent been able to build for the last 2 weeks, so I decided to make a weekend of it. Birds Inlaid
  9. Ya, I went through and deepened all the slots once i had the basic shape. I left like mayb 1/16 of pearl above the fingerboard. I need to re radius the board through the grits now.
  10. Right on man... Its like i get better after each one!!! each one looks better than the next.
  11. This is my fist inlay job. The first two birds have a small gap around the edges. My tolerances are getting tighter each inlay. When i mix rosewood dust in with the epoxy these gaps shouldnt be as noticeable right? any other tips/suggestions?
  12. I figured it would be tighter since it was scooted all the way forward when the template was locked down, and now it sits like 2/8 from where it was routed to because of the corners. Shouldnt it tighten up?
