I knew the curry wouldn't go down well They purée all the veg for some reason at the take-away it came from. I don't know why. It's tasty as Hell though

So I unclamped my headstock, and there's a crack in it. Maybe I used a little too much pressure

Anyway, here it is:

It might all get cut out when I thickness the headstock, who knows! If not then I'll just have to sort it I guess

That curry almost looks like a scallop with the roe sack still intact. However, I was expecting a sausage, bacon and egg butty. I am disappoint.

Looks like lacquer's winning so far! I should point out that it's acrylic I shall be using

Faux binding could be covering the edge so it doesn't get the stain/dye/paint.

Lots of commercial lacquers/clearcoars are Nitro-based: some from MinWax, Deft, etc.

I'm leaving a natural finish though y'see Also, I'm in Scotland so we don't have those places. I've used acrylic before and had good enough results, and I can source it locally so I'll just be sticking with that for the moment

I'm pretty sure you have similar manufacturers, available at your local bigbox DIY stores, since Nitro is pretty ubiquitous. Acrylic lacquer is fine, too.

You can have faux binding with a natural finish, especially if you plan to stain or dye it (transparent finish).

Lacquer for sure, make that flame plywood pop! Looks really good so far, keep it up.

Where abouts in Scotland are you whoomit?

True. Well, I'll maybe see about nitro if I don't have much acrylic left. If I've got leftover acrylic still then I'm using that though

Ah cool, I have a friend or two that stay in Edinburgh now. Supposed to be really good. As slapsy said, you should give it a go


Pickguards!
Aluminium? Wood? Clear perspex? With perspex I can always put something on the underside which will show through to the front.

What do you guys think?

Aluminium could be nice. Shiny or non-shiny?

Here's an idea, though it depends how much money you have left...

mirror finish motherf*cker.

I'd go with no pickguard, tbh.

...

Actually, why not cut one out of a bit of wood and stain it so it contrasts with the stain on the body? That would look nice.

Kinda tempting, but I'm not sure if it'll fit in with the rest of the build or not

Well if I don't have a pickguard then I'll have to make a small cover for the wiring rout on the body. Might look kinda odd

I don't think I'm going to be using any stains, but I was maybe thinking of making a wooden pickguard out of a lighter wood. Depends what I can get my hands on though

Probably not, on reflection.



Pun not originally intended, but I'll leave it in anyway

I actually came around to quite liking the idea of a mirror pick guard. I think I like the perspex with a design underneath - depends on the design, really.

Got any chequer plate knocking around?
