The laberbread in the neck pocket looks very fresh and green
Les Paul Tele?
Yes I have been meaning to do do one for years
Who did the body
Guitar Build UK do some nice stuff got some nice timber available not mad prices compared to some.
Back to natural I’ve had a nightmare with this, painting was horrible so I’ve stripped it back to start again and shellac and beeswax it is, painting around binding I will leave to the pros I like the top on this as it is there is a nice contrast going on as you can see with the back plates anyway the easy bit now put it together.
Looking really great but I’m interested in what type of gold paint you used on the first finish?
Nitro cellulose the new stuff from a local supplier.
Nice bit of progress this week.
I enjoy partscasters far and above factory builds in my price range.
This one looks to be stellar!
What year was that Strat Neck???
Good looking project
04 Highway one of my favourite necks.
Just lying around shame to see it go to waste my new build didn't suit a CBS headstock.
Well a bit more done whilst the site was having problems the pickguard is a mock up waiting for my material to arrive and then will use as a template.
Headstock laminate turned out ok a few little marks, had to shim the neck but strung it up and intonation is ok, gone for strap locks now waiting on pups.
A few pics
It’s looking good and I’m liking the headstock
Thanks it was easy to do, I glued some rosewood veneer then sanded and give it a few shots of nitro I made mistakes and it's not perfect but I am learning.
Learning is good but sometimes costly!
Looks great Gary
