This ‘62 with an ages old refin job. It’s an amazing instrument!

Apart from the bass amp, I've just (finally) restrung my acoustic. I put 12 gauge chrome flatwounds on it, naturally. The shell-pink strat was on it, but at this point I think I'm abandoning it - nothing has gotten the strap marks out, and it's a thin-body affinity to start with. That kind of guitar just doesn't merit a refin.

My most important project right now is space-clearing, looking for homes for the Dano '63, the pink strat, the Aston Broadsword, my first electric (a crappy Yamaha that I'd still rather not see on a bonfire) and the acoustic and Ché 2 - if I decide to part with those two - to clear room for a cabinet for the bass amp and a semi-acoustic.

They who die with the fewest control knobs, win.

Simple one first....Trimming out my surf green Squier Start in black hardware

Currently, the bits and bobs from 3 MIDI controllers that are being transplanted into an enclosure that holds them and 12 sound modules. The enclosure itself is on a card tsble nearby waiting for me to finish the paint experiment for it.

It looks like a GFS paisley tele after that. When they moved, I got discount body. My daughter saw it and said that's her next guitar. I said only if you build it. So she will. Not too many 9 year olds out there playing an axe they assembled themselves!

So yesterday I made good cause with the T-cut at removing the black stains from my Shell Pink affinity strat. I succeeded! When the last of the paint was removed. The stain was all the way through the finish.

So that's sad. It's a nice playing guitar for an Affinity, but I'm not prepared to keep it at this point. The Laurel fretboard is nice, but if I have a 'keeper' strat, I want maple. And I don't want to have black patches or t-cut wear around the strap mounts. So the neck isn't worth keeping to me, and if I'm going to refinish the body - I want a full-depth body!

If anyone in the south west of the UK wants a free most-of-a-guitar, you're welcome to it. I've harvested the tuners as compatible spares for my as-original-as-possible 2003 Jagmaster, and it needs rewiring and new pickguard screws - but it's otherwise complete, and it was a well-playing guitar.

They who die with the fewest control knobs, win.

What's this hairy mess?

It's a G&G Jazz Bass case I scored,
now converted to accommodate my Squier Bass VI.
Had to cut foam at 3 locations - wings and neck pocket.
The glue absorbed too well, and stained the fur's exposed side a bit, but the VI now sits firm and secured.

Here's one current project: It's a 2011 Squier Cyclone that I'm getting ready to sell. I had enlarged the rout for the switch when I replaced the cheapo original switch that died with a Switchcraft type right angle switch. So I needed to clean that up and add some shielding paint. The swimming pool rout is original, not my work.

Also need to finish cleaning the fretboard and fix the pickup wiring - I had played around with installing a number of different pickups and then put the originals back in, but accidentally wired them out of phase.

It's a good guitar and was fun and easy to modify, but I've decided to let it go.

Jacks seem to be a theme this week.

Cool

Many years ago I started this Yamaha SGV clone project. I lost interest for it for a while, but recently I spent some time trying to finish the project. Now also I got some help from our cat with the wiring Smile

Bjorn, your SG is looking good, but that's got to be a lot of work. I sometimes get help from cats as well.

And speaking of projects, on your old blog, you described the two amps you built, but I never saw how they turned out sound-wise. Did they work well? Are they comparable to other amps in their sound?

Thanks EdwardSand —
