So that's 2 coats of diluted FW Golden Teak; 3 coats of blonde shellac shellac (also sprayed) and 5 coats of gloss poly.

    Hoping to get the satin all done tomorrow.
    Looking really good mate! Love the tone too..👍
    Do you use your airbrush all the time for guitars? Or a normal spray gun..

    I used the airbrush here because I only needed a small batch of gloss poly for such a small area. Plus the airbrush cleans up a bit faster when I'm done than my other two guns.

    I'll use my .8mm touch-up gun when I do the rest of the neck with satin. If had chosen to do the whole neck in satin, I would have just used the touch-up gun. I've been spraying exclusively with guns/airbrush on guitars for about 2 years or so now.

    I haven't done a burst on a guitar yet, but the airbrush is perfect for doing it when I've mucked around on scrap timber.


    Also, thanks BD!

    It hasn't happened to me in a while.
    I should have known I was tempting fate when I posted about it in someone else's thread recently.

    I was able to extricate the wing with minimal damage, and strip sanded the spot. I spot sprayed a bit of poly there, and it's drying now, but I can see I'll have to do that a couple times to get it buried properly

    I was able to remove the bulk of the little bastard (including a leg that came off) with little to no marks, but that wing...

    Or Little Bastard Wing!

    Did Jimi ever play a tele?

    Good to see you back Simon.

    He's supposed to have borrowed Noel Redding's Tele on a few recordings. But if you read all the various guitar forum reports, he'd have played it on almost every major hit!

    A quick image search online doesn't yield any photos of him with a tele.

    I once saw poorly photoshopped pic of Jimi with a Les Paul though. (probably on the LP Forum!)
