Very very nice. I have a '67 289 in my old Correct Craft Mustang.
Sonic Blue on. On another forum, someone suggested I should try to mimic the paint job on some early Corvette "Mako Shark" styling exercises. I really like the idea; how about you guys? The Sonic Blue looks like the right shade for the bottom area, and I have an airbrush to do the darker burst.
I like that idea too but maybe not as dark. Fade to a lake placid blue.
Can't wait to see it finished, the suspense is killing me.
Jack plate finished:
How did you get that flush without a retaining nut ?
It's just a friction fit for the photo- it'll have a nut on it when it's done.
thanks for sharing your build !
I've decided to stick with my original plan, all Sonic Blue. I usually regret switching plans in midstream.
Need some wiring help- any pros here? The setup on this guitar is:
(2) GFS Surf 90s
LP-style 3 way toggle (Switchcraft)
I've never wired an LP toggle, and the Surf 90s have the 3-wire Kwikplug system, so I'm all confused. Any help or some kind of diagram would be appreciated. Thanks
I did a bunch of research online, and it looks like wiring it for a Les Paul master volume & tone circuit will work. The '50s wiring supposedly maintains more clarity as you turn down the volume control.
First of many clear coats going on:
What clear are you using?
Awesome, man! I really dig it! Don't get me wrong, I love the classic guitar shapes, but there aren't nearly enough completely original guitar designs out there... The world needs more, variety IS the spice, hoss...
So not only "congrats" on an awesome successful build, but ESPECIALLY on the design! Awesome!
I always use Behlen products Triple Jim; Pore-O-Pac grain filler for porous wood, Vinyl sealer over any wood, Stringed Instrument Lacquer clear, Qualalacq reducer & retarder for clear coats. My lacquer color coats are either Stew Mac, ReRanch or a color mixed at the local auto paint store. I used to try to finish guitars with rattle cans, but decided to step up to an a gun & small oilless compressor.
Thanks SquierTap. But it's not a successful build until it plays properly; I've had setbacks before deep into the build, like a neck reset on a glued-in neck. That one sucked!
Getting ready to cut the pickguard:
That is going to be SWEEEEET! I would like to order another when you are ready.
The 289 is a nice engine. My Dad had a Galaxy Sport with a 289..... in your Falcon Ranchero the power to weight ratio is probably awesome to say the least.
