  1. Hey all, so I was at the hardware store the other day and while looking at wood finishes I decided to just use satin ploy for the neck rather than some exotic finish I wouldn't be certain would work. So here's the problem, I have an unbound neck, (Mahogany) so I have (engineered admittedly) rosewood from the fret board hanging off the side. Will the ploy affect the two woods differently, especially where they are glued?
  2. A story of a guitar I never played (yet) I noticed there's no topic on 'Introducing ourselves and who we are' and I've been around for a long time on this forum as a reader, lately more as a contributor. So let me introduce myself and share a story of a custom built dreadnought that's waiting for me in Nicaragua. My name is Age, nickname 10pizza, 42 yrs old and living in the Netherlands. First got the guitar-virus when I was about 14 yr old and a big Pink Floyd fan. My brother bought a cheap electric one day which sort of opened up the world for me: I lived in a small town and electric guitars were something I only knew from the TV! So I started with a job during summer holidays and I got myself a very nice, metallic red Fenix stratocaster (made in Korea by Young Chang, who also built guitars for Fender), similar to Dave Gilmour's strat he played in the 80's. since then I've owned a variety of guitars (GAS) and sold off a lot as well. Typically I liked getting cheap guitars and try to improve them with some TLC and hardware changes. That's how I came to know ProjectGuitar.com and how I ended up (finally) building a guitar myself. (in progress) Pilarte guitars now on to the guitar story. Me and my wife are in the process of adopting a child. It's a very lengthy procedure which takes a lot of time and since 2013 we are waiting to be matched to a child needing a family. You have to pick a country to adopt from and in our case it's Nicaragua. When we are matched to a child we will need to stay over there for about 4 months. This gave me an idea: I'd like to play some guitar while I'm over there, so I started looking online for guitarshops/luthiers. I found a local builder called Luis Pilarte and I started emailing with him on the possibility to build me an acoustic. He sent me some pictures of wood he had available and I selected some nice pieces of cocobolo. I gave him specs matching those of a Martin D28 and he started building. A couple of months later it was ready and now it's waiting over there for me to come and play it! attached some pictures of the wood and end result. Can't wait to go out there and first of all meet our kid but then pick up this baby!
