    I can concur that the mini- or touch-up guns are the way to go for guitar bodies and necks.
    Mine is also a .8mm nozzle and there's heaps of flow. Mine came with a 125ml cup, which has been okay, but...

    The product page lists it as Ash which, TTBOMK, is likely American Ash aka White Ash. FTR it most definitely is not to be confused with Swamp Ash. The Ash supplied in the PBG kits tend to run quite...

    Nice axe!

    I've taken a lot tips out of Dan's books and videos. Especially when I first started doing nut work. I see you also follow a similar philosophy with the depth of the string slots. I set...
