    Dayum. Do you need a special glue to laminate the veneer?

    Awesome details you put into it. Is the trussrod cover made from wood? It looks crazy good.

    Too much praise folks, it's not done yet and I still have plenty of opportunities to screw it up!



    Yeah, I'm afraid you are right here ;-)

    I love the spalted top. Also the headstock. LP's are my favorite kits, very sad they're not available from PB anymore. Do you intend to screw the neck or will you dowel and glue it?

    I know I actually wanted to wait, but it kept looking at me.

    It's pretty glossy. Not a perfect factory finish, but I'm good with it for now.

    Man, this thing was a real b*tch. Thanks...

    Thanks Simon, I think I'll go with the more modern wire, then.

    This morning, I realized I put a whole can of polyurethan on this thing. OK, it was a small can, but still. This thing is huge.

    Great idea, actually! But how is staining with the holes filled with wax? If you get a tiny bit of wax on the surface, it surely won't take any more stain?
    Or do you do it even pre sanding?

    Okay, so it is not glue, then.

    I came across some white-ish kind of filler in some of my kits, so maybe somebody in the factory thought the veneer is too uneven and tried to fill it.

    It's a...

    Thanks again, Simon. I'll see what colors my husband has hidden in his drawer ;-)

    Thanks Simon, in your photo, they look nice. The product photo however on the website does not do the knobs justice.

    Currently my least favorite part of guitar building: Building the finish up. Adding coat after coat, light scraping in between, leveling out the biggest flaws/ridges, more coating, more gentle...

    For guitar kits, the veneer is 0.6mm most of the time. This sounds like nothing, but if you are careful, it can take quite a bit of sanding.

    I'd also try goof off/acetone first. But if the veneer...

    Hm, I don't know. It's already flat. I don't need to remove that much material....

    Oh, okay :-)
    I wanted to let it dry/cure for until monday or tuesday, then polish. Good I have asked before :D

    I would pick a stain that lets the grain show through on the back and sides, so not too dark. Maybe a color that picks up the dark grain color from the front. That could look pretty.

    The current weather (hot and dry) has allowed me to add quite a few more coats of poly in quicker succession. I'm now letting it cure for a few more days, but then, how should I proceed best?

    It's great guitar finishing weather, 33C and low humidity. So this is coat no. 9 (switched to wipe on poly after 3 coats).

    No, it's really this yellow. Thanks for the info, I'm getting the blade out :)

    Edit: Damn, this poly stuff is tough! At least it will offer a nice protection to the guitar.

    Thanks! It's Minwax Espresso, it's a bit warmer than the Ebony color they have which I first considered.



    You are right! And that's actually why I decided against it. I used it on my #3 build...
