    Hey man,

    Sorry for the delay in replying, I don't actually surf the forums much any more now that I'm not working from home. So are you sorted or would you like me to vectorise and scale that for...

    Thanks Simon. Progress on spraying has slowed due to two weeks of crappy weather. It's definitely getting there though and probably good for the initial can and half of clear to cure a bit.

    Got...

    Well so far there is about 3/4 of a 400g can on there. I'm thinking probably another two cans.

    Decided to have a go at the pickguard today to get a better idea of the finished look. It's pretty...

    Dry enough for a quick mock up. Long way to go with the clear coating!

    Dots cleaned up, initial radiusing done, I think I'll give it another pass before I move onto frets. Also made a start on the slot for the nut.

    Few more coats of clear on the body, but doesn't...

    Cheers Drew, plan is to build up a heap of clear and block it back. Itís going to take a while, but I can see some areas filling up on the front of the guitar after about half 400g can of clear.

    Dots in. Had the pilot holes perfectly aligned on the front, but they still ended up slightly wonky after i drilled them out to 6mm. Annoying, but not super noticeable... I guess the test will be...

    Yep herpes of the craft world lol. Yeah seems ok, it's embedded in the clear pretty well.

    Well here goes nothing. Decided to put a coat of blue mettalic down to make up for any thin spots in the glitter. In the end the coverage ended up pretty even. Fingers crossed all goes well with...

    Cheers, I think it's going to work with enough clear built up over it.

    Been a busy few weeks with not much workshop time. A little more progress. Started clear coating the body. The back will be natural and the mdf will be a glitter finish (at this stage). Have been...

    Fretboard is glued down. A few more experiments for fret dots. I chopped up an old Kilometric pen to make a circle, now toying with ideas for filling. If I go the same blue glitter on the body I'm...

    Yeah I'm going to try putting a white undercoat in as well. I'm a bit worried about bleed into the wood fibers, but worth a try.

    Cheers, Rolf. It's not a bad proof of concept for the dots, but they look a little dark. I'm going to try with some white prismatic glitter and see how that looks.

    I'm just going to use clear...

    Some small steps forward. Bit more refining of the body shape and a redo of the round over. Belly carve done, might make it a little deeper. The composite birch is actually quite nice to work with,...

    Sorry, I meant round over bit. The transition I did with a file. Previously they've been way too steep so I'm trying to make it more F style on this one. It's not quite there yet, I'll probably use...

    Little bit more work done. Fretboard is located with pins. Headstock transition is mostly done, I need the truss rod out to do it properly so I'll finish it as much as possible before I glue the...

    It's odd. if I were making them I'd reverse the thread and put them in 'upside down' so the adjuster nut sits up a bit higher. Anyway, I'll get one of those T shaped allen keys that lets you come in...

    Yep. I've just found that the two way truss rod put the adjustment nut quiet deep in the neck meaning the headstock needs to be a bit thinner than I'd like, hopefully this gets around it.

    Truss rod in and neck shape routed. Trying something different at the adjustment end on this one.
