cause bugs love fresh paint ,fresh varnish ,it kill them but nothing stop them.

Maybe some fine mesh you find at the garden centre would help? I've heard some places in America have swarms of micro sized bugs during the summer and folks seal doors and windows with a super fine mesh to keep them out. I'm not sure what it's called though.

Mosquito nets. They sell 'em in Poundland.

thanks Clarry
it can be a solution to avoid bugs but you will have trouble with overspray that will stay in

No problem with overspray, I'll just throw the tent away after!

no it is during your spraying ,you will have a fog near the piece if you are in a too small and no ventilated space ,and this fog going to go on the body instead of being evacuate ,when you made the top for example the side will be touch by the fog

yes no poundland here ,but i see what you speak we call it mousticaire
it could be a solution ,make a room with enought space to avoid the fog fill the holes like a birdcage ,but it is for the next and i think it will be long i have already too much guitar Big Grin always miss some for example i haven't a jazzmaster in fiesta red Big Grin

moreover it is maybe a year for bugs or too early in spring cause in july and august they are less ,too much heat and they re not appreciate it and also first time i made a finish outside in my new house maybe it is du to country too

Thanks, I'll rethink my strategy.

Not the specific brand, but growing up I made near-weekly visits to the 10F shop near St-Jouan-des-Guérets. Couldn't tell you exactly where it was.

I knew what you meant TQI. But can you imagine a Poundland shop in France.. a country that rejects the pound as foreign currency in shops! Big Grin Viva la Eurotrash! (TV Series)

It's a Model T and it's silver so is it a Tin Lizzie;) Jeff it looks really nice in this configuration - big thumbs up, like button and subscribe.

That is awesome Jeff! Your model one and the reverend charger are my two favorite original body styles! It’s got to be really hard to come up with something new that still looks appropriate and at the same time totally badass!!! Well done!

Thank you crumble and Agent71857.
I really appreciate your kind words, I like that creative Tin Lizzie reference.
I'm partial to this version as well. It preserves the lines on my original design and the versatility and flexibility are very much what I seek in a guitar.
I'll personally play the heck out of this one.

Cheers,
Jeff

This Univox Coily from 1967 (M.I.J.) received a new neck. I was lucky to find an appropriate 24-3/4" scale neck in a Guitar Fetish (website) closeout sale. Because it was made for a different guitar I had to cut and glue pieces of wood on the heel of the neck to complete it, and I also had to thin the heel. This is the heel with added wood:

image

The neck was too thick for me. It was also a bit heavy for this lightweight thin fully hollow archtop guitar. So, I shortened the headstock to the minimum. Then I thinned the neck to what I consider average thickness, using rotary electric hand tools and sandpaper. Thickness from the back of the neck to the top of the frets is 20 to 21 mm; it had been 23 to 24 mm.

image

I finished the neck with 3 coats of tung oil. Here is the neck when done:

And here is the guitar I finished assembling today. I had previously replaced the incompetent Univox vibrato with an Epiphone vibrato, and the incompetent Univox bridge with a roller bridge. I also installed locking tuners. The pickups sound great and the body is gorgeous, so it's all good now.

Wow, I started this thread back in September of 2014. Good to see that you guys kept it going. Some great looking pieces being built by some talented individuals.

I took a long hiatus due to a death in the family, and other personal matters.

East Coast Executive Director Of The Society Of Incompleted Projects

After trying quite a few other baritone guitars (Squier Bass VI, Neptune by Jerry Jones, new Danelectro, and vintage Danelectro), I purchased the PRS 277 soapbar semi-hollow. I loved the feel, balance, and unplugged sound, but I was unhappy with the raspy tone of the original pickups. So I decided to replace them with TV Jones' T-Armond in the neck and the T-90 in the bridge. Now the guitar sounds considerably smoother.

I experimented with strings and really wanted flatwounds so I ended up buying a D'Addario single CG075 and used the ECG26 flat wound set to fill out the rest; discarding the 0.035" string. The tension was a bit too much so it's currently sitting in "A" standard.

The original nut was twice the height it needed so I filed it down pretty significantly. You can see my less-than picturesque work.

After all that, I'm really happy with this guitar.

I really like that. The black pickup covers blending into the pickguard and the black contrast with the seafoamesque color just works for me. Nice blend of no-nonsense with being just-rad-enough.
