After seeing this sparkle. I might do a metal flake - maybe a flake burst?

Making necks is all about tools - a few key tools make it much easier. Luckily, Matt has decided he wants to have those tools!

Indeed Wes. Here is a pix of the original in 1965. The new boat has been painted in the the same color scheme, the new one is classic Corvette yellow. It is currently wrapped up or I'd go out and take a picture. I'm currently building up a lower unit with a different gear ratio. When done I'll take it back to the lake.

Traditional........speak softly and play through a big blonde amp. Did I mention that I sill like big blonde amps?

Thanks for the kind words guys. And hey Mike, in retirement, all things are possible.

I do have a couple of Richard's blonde amps on the bench that I absolutely, positively need to get done.....and soon.

Chris with that grain you should do the translucent blonde finish.

See? Never mind the boats; I would never have thought of building a neck. To many things to screw up with these tight tolerances. Nothing you can hide behind a coat of heavy epoxy.

Flakes are my favorite. Make sure you get the big ones!
(mine are regular, cool but just not sparkly enough)

Hey G-man, that looks pretty flakey from here. Just kidding you. I like that that. Kind of lake placid blue on steroids.

I may build boats but I sure can't paint them, or paint anything. I hate paint and anything that has to do with paint.

Did I mention that I have a strong dislike for painting?

No, I didn't paint the new boat. I paid someone else to cob it up.

'58 Junior in for a refret and bone nut. First year double cutaway, this thing is killer!

That thing is cute. Although they will do more, I always thought of them as one of the quintessential R&R rhythm guitars

I went to Guitar Center recently armed with $150 of Birthday gift cards not particularly looking at anything special...this Mexican strat jumped out at me. 2004 very neglected example of a well built instrument. It was very dirty and missing strings but priced at $199. I bought it, installed a new 5 way to go along with a set of ‘65 grey bobbin American pickups I had lying around and it popped out amazing. Wonderful shaped and straight neck with almost no fret wear. With the matte purple color, it’s unlike any of my other instruments. I think I’ll keep it in my trunk next to my golf clubs!

Nice score & stealth mods. Love the idea of a beater guitar hanging out with the golf clubs. Thumbs Up Need a little Pignose or something riding in the rack on the back of the cart, maybe for when the course is backed up. Gives "playing through" a whole new meaning.

Abernethy AA model. McNelly Stagger Swagger pickups, Ferro hardware, torrefied woods. This thing is a beast.

60's Kay K100. In for a refret, bone nut, and some electronics work. Fun little booger!
