alright! ive been crazy busy with work. lots of ahrd labour long hours, but i'm also in comunity with 20 or so other people so its awesome to have peopel around to ahgn otu with, talk to, and jsut recently, jam with =]


the cajon is finished and has been lovingly received into our usual acoustic jams. sounds pretty decent, leared a few thigns il imporve on the next one.. whenever that may be.

so im not going to lacquer this one.. no need, and my spray booth is currently torn down.. without me knowing.. but w.e


anyways, pics of cajon




and in other news, i got one of the tele bodies, grainfileld, sanded, and painted. painted outside then hungit in an empty cabin nearbye... not as good as a spray booth.. but w.e

staretd with a light tack coat, then sprayed the edges abotu 3 times, then did 3 ligth coats on front and back, enough to ensure whiteness, but still sligthly visiable grain. best of both worlds. il leave that to ahgn for a few days until i have a spray booth, then shoot a couple thin coatws fo clear. im shooting thin because im hoping this one will naturally relic, but quicker than most lol.

the white tele looks fantastic jay,
If you ever get round to making hollow body LP v.2 go with a finish like this I reckon.
(have been stalking your older builds for tips on an upcoming LP project of mine)

Killer thread, Jay

Have you tried the Jescar EVO fretwire? Supposedly, while being a bit pricier, it's easier on tools than stainless and lasts longer.

A question for you good sir!

You use wenge necks on your Empress. I know wenge can be kind of heavy, how does it affect the feel/balance of weight/tone in your mind?

yeah theres a couple dents.. they just kinda show up by themselfs. at this point it would dent if you look at it too hard. if i werent planning on this relicing fast, i would fix them.


i LOVEEE wenge. it feels and looks amazing. soundwise it is warmer than maple, brighter than mahogany.

the empress ahd a featehrweight body, and there was no balance issues.
