    Maybe do a few coats of primer filler to fill the imperfections.

    Isn't it amazing what shows up when you spray primer.

    Photos have to be 1500x1500 and less than 1Mb. I think you can also upload to a photo server and then link to the uploaded photo. Someone else will be able to fill you in on that.

    Thanks TD. I am happy with the colour. I followed Phrozin's instructions on painting with cans.
  4. Update - body polished and ready for parts, back a few steps with the neck

    Update: I sanded back the headstock to get the clear flat on top of the decal. I ended up sanding through to the decal. So now I have taken it right off and I am back to base coating. I might do...

    After the recent post from Adam offering free SixStringSupplies pots for people to try and report back on, I went to the SixStringSupplies website and orders pots (push pull volume), 5 way switch,...

    ....but it didn't. The wrinkles came back, although not as bad as before. Perhaps the answer is to keep spraying clear coats until it does not come back at all.

    Another problem surfaced. The black...

    I sprayed over the wrinkled sticker - about 5 coats of clear - and the sticker flattened out perfectly. No more wrinkles. Hopefully it will stay flat while the clear dries.

    Can't believe it.

    I could either keep spraying clear coats until I have enough build up to W&D it back flat, or I could block it back, taking off the decal in the process then try again.

    Howdy folks.

    Bit of a problem with the inkjet decal. I sprayed one coat of clear (auto acrylic) after I printed it so it would not run when I soaked it in water. Then I soaked it in water and...

    That looks like about a 7mm gap. So if you wanted a 2mm action, you would have to add a 5mm shim under the neck, if they were parallel shims.

    If you used the suggestion of a tapered shim, it would...

    Thanks SB. I was fishing for exactly the information you provided. I have a maple neck....well I don't, but my current build does. I will finish the fretboard with Organoil (tung oil with additives).

    I use a tung oil based product called Organoil. The finish is super smooth and your hand slides up and down the neck easily. It does not stick the way it does on a full gloss finish. It is applied...

    I sometimes put a bit of solder onto the tip when I start heating an object to form a thermal bridge. My theory is that if you put the tip straight onto the dry joint, the thermal conductivity will...

    I just measured the gap under my frets - the biggest is 0.15mm. I also checked my PBG tele and it has gaps up to 0.1mm under the frets. Should I not worry about these gaps?

    I don't have a fret press caul, but they are $25 on ebay with 3 inserts and a neck rest is $12. Could be worth it.

    Except it will be a 6 week wait for delivery.

    Frets not seated

    Some of the frets on my maple neck are not properly seated. They are sitting around 0.3mm off the fret board. I can push them in, but they don't stay pushed in. How can I fix this?

    I used a few different stains - black, red and brown, and topped it off with Organoil. I think it is basically tung oil. We used it on our kitchen bench and floor so I had some left over. Makes for a...
