    Huh.
    I suppose it would have been quite the design flaw if it could not be used with one of the most popular models of guitar.
    Clearly they are not as dumb as I thought. :oops:

    Finally some progress! I ordered some lacquer from amazon a while back, not noticing the delayed shipping due to the virus. UPS brought it today, so I threw on several coats of white lacquer in my "spray booth". The next step is fitting and attaching the sheepskin. If anyone has ideas about attaching a hide to painted wood, I'm all ears!

    Dang, mate! How have I only found out this thread now?? What a cool-looking project, this seems sweet! Can't wait to see the fur coating the guitar ;)

    OK, this is going to sound REALLY weird, but during this covid House Arrest, I've been trying to stay busy every day, and as a result, I've been seriously caffeinated, so this is probably a result of the squirrel running a marathon on the wheel....

    But, with thought, planning, experimentation, and patience, you could design and create the fur as a ......ready?......'costume' for the guitar. By this I mean it could be fitted and attached in such a way as to be removable. Magnets? Small snaps? Hidden velcro? See, that opens a whole new realm of possibilities once you get the basic foundation worked out. Color changes, Theme changes, obviously doesn't have to be always fur. It also gives you a 'regular' guitar.

    Sorry, my brain is 'thinking', and it won't stop. A mind is a terrible thing....

    There is something strangely satisfying about watching that guitar spin. It’s hypnotic.

    BB, you are friggin' DEDICATED! Great ingenuity! Who looks at a flying V and sees an Explorer in there?!?!? Awesome work! Can't wait to see the finished product. Best build of the Covid era for sure!

    Glued the sheepskin on the body today, using contact cement. I made a paper tracing of the body and the areas to be cut out, then flipped it over, positioned it on the pelt, and traced around it with a Sharpie. Then I cut out the holes where needed, slathered on the glue, let it get tacky (appropriate!), then set the body on the pelt. Applied my massive bulk to press it in place, then threw a buncha junk on it to weight it down.

    Trimmed the edges, glued & stapled the sides, then mocked it up with the neck. I think I'll need to do a little shearing to bring the overall size down a tad; Billy's looks a little more groomed than mine.
