    Working on a Starcaster in silver burst. Changed pickguard to a 3 ply and upgraded the bridge to a Fender with roller saddles. Refinishing the neck right now.

    Had my Epip LP Junior out playing it and didn't like how the turners were acting ( you know the cheap covered ones). I took the covers off, took them apart, and flaked off the hard whatever type grease they used. Then greased them up with Super Lube. I asked the company for a couple samples a few years back and they sent me 2 tubes and it retails for $10. Good Stuff. Left the covers off as well.

    I love a silver burst! The neck looks good too.

    That finish looks great. I love the grain and color. What color pickgaurd are you going to use? I hoping you say black. That would look killer!

    I’m wiring up the pickgaurd for an NC project. First time I have ever used a super switch. Very tedious work. Should be cool when it’s done

    Not sure yet but I had a white one on it before and it looked good so we'll see where it goes.

    Early days of my first build.
    Colour is applied to the body, but not to a photographable standard yet...

    Did a minor repair on this Ken Smith bass for my cousin. The 9-volt battery connector needed to be replaced.

    A super filthy 1995 MIM Strat. I plan to polish up the frets and try to get the swirl marks out of the body and pop in some early Highway One pickups and just make a player out of it. Poor guitar looks like it hasn't been cleaned since the Clinton administration.

    I need to put this to work :) Wifey's B-day present to me last April.
    [​IMG]

    Later this summer when humidity is down I am going to paint this SE body that carved out for humbuckers. I think it is a sea green or ocean blue. Hesitant because the bod and paint are in great shape.... but black!. But.... I also found a guard I built at some point with some HB sized P90's..... hmm what to do
    Not very motivated to do any guitar work these days. I would like to but I have so much going on and so many great guitars already......... first world problems! :D

    Or this one, I already built another using this exact wiring and pups.... why do it again? I loved the way it turned out.

    It's not really on the bench at the moment. since it's not currently having work done on it, but I got a relic looking solid brass Tele bridge plate from the last box, and I've been planning to build a Tele or Esquire around it.

    Last week, I found the wood for the body in the form of this large antique wooden crate for four bucks at a garage sale.
