Last weekend

Aussie blackwood... Vic and Taz. With a ringed Gidgee fretboard to boot. No plan yet but glad to have them.

Needed a switch knob for the Blackguard. I could order one but this is a cheap prototype so lets grab a piece of ABS and make a knob. Can't be that hard. I didn't use the drill press to drill the hole so the first 2 ended up being a bit crooked. After finally getting a straight hole I rounded it on the belt sander, sanded it with a 180 grit sponge and buffed it on the buffer wheel.

This is why I hate using CA for a sealer. Big yellow discoloration. There are also yellow streaks on the front and it gums up the sand paper really quick.

3 coats of clear before going to the color. This way I can level it before the burst without worrying about cutting through.

After leveling we get ugly.

Sanding out the red witch II.

Time for decals. No more water slide decals for me.

Lets get oil

Starting on 2 new multiscale 7 strings.
