i thought that solos were just random notes played high on the neck. i kept trying to play them by hitting whatever and couldn't figure out why it sounded like ****. so i asked my friend how people knew what notes to hit....thus i was introduced to scales
not me, but my dad also thought electric guitars were made of plastic....
it looks very similar to my Kay that i picked up last summer. same tail piece and similar pickups. also the thin body.
congrats! i love my Kay, and that looks great too!
how does the bar attach to the tail piece? mine is missing the bar and there is just a hole there, no threads. i'm thinking of bending some threaded rod and just using 2 nuts to attach it, but haven't gotten around to it.
it's a left over piece of the figured maple top. i made it using a jig saw and a spindle sander.
thanks for all the good comments....and orgasms i suppose.
edit: for the finish question, no i did not do a silver. the reason it came out so trans is because when i applied the clear some of the stain lifted with it due to it being a water based clear and the fact that i brushed it on.
So i started a build thread a long while back with my basic plans, and then never really updated it...the guitar is done now. here are pics and specs!
i'll try to record some stuff next week maybe.

i don't think you can pull stain back out of the wood, depends on what the base of the stain is too. if it is water based you can try wetting it down and wiping it off. i think the only way to get it all out is by sanding though.
