Thread: #6 - sta-1ht

  1. #1

    #6 - sta-1ht - A sunburst Story

    The plan was always to stop at #5. Oh well, a few of glasses of wine and internet access are a dangerous thing.

    Current plan for this one is the classic Strat burst amber out to black, if I can get it right on a few practice pieces. If I chicken out, will probably end up natural, which with the grain will look fine as well.

    The Neck and headstock, Haven't seen it like this before, unsure how I feel at the moment, will be a more unique feature though I suppose.

    Shout out to Adam, for fulfilling my request to swap out all the white bits for black bits, and yes there are only 2 pickups in the box, 1 is on back order, they are Benson KWS's.

    That is a wild grain on the neck! Looks pretty consistent though, I bet it'll look great finished. Body grain is also really cool, be nice to highlight a bit through the burst.

    Build 2 - The Relliecaster TL-1
    Build 3 - The Black Cherry SG AG-1

    Yes, it will be especially visible on the back, being a HT, Will probably grain fill with Ebony TM.

    Some initial attempts which tell me I have a fair bit of practising to do. Although in fairness I'd don't think the 4th one is too bad.

    Completed:

    ES-5V
    Scratchie lapsteel
    Custom ST-1 12 String (to be converted to 6 string)
    JBA-4
    TL-1TB
    Scratch Lapsteel
    Meinl DIY Cajon
    Cigar Box lap steel

    Wishing:
    Baritone
    Scratchie 12 string
    Open D/Standard Double 6 twin neck

    Forgot to mention, the other adventure on this one, will be making it string through. Getting that all aligned should be fun. Does mean I'll need a new bridge as the kit one is top load only.

    Agree the outside edge is a bugger, start narrow, and it just creeps in every time. Oh well more trial and error to come.
