No.


Well, technically it could be done, but only in the same way that you could change a cat into a hamburger. It's an unpleasant process, and nobody is happy with the result.

thanks guys.

it should look badass, it's a nice piece of quilt. (thewoodwell.com $15.00)


it's a shame some of that is going to get cut out.


here's the plan.

1 - pickguard will be replaced with a white one.
2 - knobs/pups either black or white - will test out in the store to see for sure before the pups are ordered.
3 - trans black burst finish on front and back. (only quilting the front) we want as much of the veneer to show as possible so it will be somewhat of a "rim-burst" and more towards the edge of the guitar than most fender burst finishes.
4 - headstock to be veneered and bursted to match.
5 - the neck has a rosewood board.

and you won't have to wait too long on this one as it has a gig in a month.

What the heck did he do to that thing?!

i'm told the "rock guard" type is the result of throwing snow at the finish while it was wet.


no lie, my jaw hung just as low as your's is right now.

Dear god is that a Fender Tornado body?

I literally have not seen one of those guitars in about 10 years.

i don't think even he knows what it is. it's a MIM that he got used for $250 off of craigslist, is the story i got. i'll have a look at the headstock when i get it and see wtf it is.



i'm hoping to get some sanding done today if possible.

That wood is sick!!! thewoodwell.com huh? How do you like them?

it's the third time i've ordered through them.

i'd try another supplier but they've been great to work with so no real reason to switch.

nice people, good product.

got some 100 grit to persuade the rock guard to leave town.


went through 6 sheets on my vibrator.


oh behave.




i don't think the old veneer covered the body completely. i didn't sand that off, i barely got the finish off the wood and found this.



the backside may turn out pretty nice, there's some decent grain going on there.








yea i know i have to remove the ferrels (?) and sand around the string entry point . i just wanted to get the bulk of it strip-sanded today, the rock guard off etc.

maybe 2 hours today in labor, 6 sheets of 100 grit.

Pics or it didn't happen!

Edit: Fucking ninja'd! How often does that happen in GB&C!?

i told Zach i was considering modifying the pick guard and he came up with this design. (yes the blue part would be gone and it would be quilt top there).



he's buying a new one anyway so i'm going to see how tough they are to modify.

edit: i think it's a brilliant idea.

Looking good! Nice veneer.
How did you apply it to the guitar? Clamp press? Weights?

But I'd leave the pick guard alone.
#35
I like your idea with the pickguard. It would show more of the maple top and it looks better in general in my own opinion.
#37
thanks guys, i have to get the top arm curve glued down today.

i used glue, clamps, bags of sand, and then ninja and jedi powers.

i still have to use some filler, sand the top half outer edge, do some leveling, drill some holes etc.



boring people don't comment.

Yes that's true. For my build the wood glue and filler took the dye much much deeper than the hard maple. My dark green dye looked great on the maple but looked almost black on the filler and glue.

Since you're going to do a black dye I'd just paint the sides and back black and do a burst fade with the black around the edge. Basically exactly what I did with my SG.
