  1. The surface did dry to the point where I wet sanded it back to a fine polish. The issue which strangely fixed itself this weekend, was the indentation of the parts into the clear coat. I ended up covering the guitar this weekend on my work bench since I had to move on to building a door and a book case, last night I was able to take a quick look and found the spots completely gone. The first spray for the guitar was over a month ago and like in the last few posts I learned my lesson on using the medium hardener. It ended up drying too slow and causing the pin holes in the clear. As soon as
  2. Did a search on automotive clear and 2K clear, each thread touched on the issue that I am seeing, but not 100% sure I got the answer. I have used this paint before, mainly for gas tanks over a color, but I figured I would give it a try over wood. It looks fantastic, nice mirror shine on it I am completely satisfied with the sanding and polishing. Problem was the other night I placed the hardware on the top to take some pictures of it to get an idea of how it was going to look. To my surprise I got outlines of the hardware, not huge outlines, small hairline corners on the one and an arc on ano
  3. Read Ace Frehely's Autobiography, not much in there that I did not already know. I think the biggest surprise was how close he was to John Belushi, that I did not recall. All the gun play and such I knew about mainly from talking with Ed Roman..... Yes I dare mention that name outside of the realm of reality..... There is a man that needs an autobiography written about him as anyone that owns/owned/or may own a Steinberger would know his name. Read Gene Simmons also, but he is self centered - money maker, so you get more watching his show when it was on. Honestly his kids were spoiled brat
  4. Not 100% sure I don't have an old Warmoth body, but the neck pocket looks to have the Warmoth icon there.
  5. Although I have not done the swirling on a guitar yet, I have done it on other items in the past. I noticed you are from Belguim and in the states we use a product called 20 Mule Team Borax. What it ends up being is a laundry enhancer, when I do the translation on the site you put into the note, that is the same product for the most part. To me that would do the trick.... I did see that you or someone else asked the question on the page also about if it can displace water. I would go ahead and get that, or see if you can find some of the 20 mule product.
  6. One might be a ECC83, 12AT7 or 7025, which is pretty much interchangable with the 12AX7 or just different manufacture design. I know that in my old '67 Fender that I had a bunch of different tubes that I mixed and matched to create a different feel of the amp.
  7. Another thing you can do is try and find a local Luthier that is willing to take on someone and show you how to make a guitar. The advantage there is that they probably have all the tools that you need. Plus I know from my own experience that I am not a book guy, so having someone there to show me is definitely an advantage. I only need to see it once and I can do it, but I can read 10 books and never get it. The hardest part for me is still the neck, I have an issue with the why part. Yes I am an engineer by trade and it is probably the root of my problem, but someday I hope to understand it
  8. PM a picture of it if you get a chance, I would like to check it out. Thanks.
  9. Found the picture I was looking at... http://www.auctiva.c...,0,0,0&format=0 Hopefully that takes you there, but from what I have read they are powered by 2 6V6 tubes, have one Recto tube and 2 12AX7 tubes. On 3 different sites they mention that combination for that model. Based on what I have read that the amp was manufactured by either St George or Teisco Amps based on Massie's specs. As I mentioned earlier Massie appeared to be trying to break away from Fender at the time and was expanding. If it is a Teisco Amp I may even have the prints on it, unfortunately I did not have to time
  10. While searching for the model that you listed I was able to see a couple of photos of the rear of one and there was definitely an 12AX7 in the picture. The strange part was that the photos showed 2 AX7 tubes. If I can find the links again I will add them. Do a search on Massie or st. george and put the amp and model in. Sounds like a neat little amp considering that Massie worked for Fender.
  11. I can tell you that the one that I have works great, so far no issues or complaints and I have use both. The cutters are without a doubt important to have anyway.
  12. I actually just called them on the phone because that is where I got mine from a couple of months ago. These are not the actual Wagner ones they are copies and from overseas, the person said that they should be in soon.

  14. Anybody try soda blasting? I have not had to strip a body in a long time, but I have a couple of flame shape guitars in the shop now that I am thinking of repainting. I know I would like to try Ice Blasting, but just too cheap to buy one.
  15. Well as it turns out I threw the old paper back on and it has stayed together,so that must be the issue. Now I just need to figure out where to get the paper.
