I don't think you will go wrong with the rust oleum brand. I use it on just about everything .
I do, it covers real nice.
Yes $28 shipped. And the wood is very light. So I won't pre drill anything.
That there Strat is lookin hotter than a pawnshop pistol, amigo!
Already a Thing of Beauty, with only one coat of clear on th back...
Where did ya come up with a $28 Strat body, if ya don't mind my askin?
LOL... Thanks Mr Bones. Check your inbox.
Just Applied 1 Coat to the Front. As you can see the other piece is lighter. I still like it though. What do you expect for $28 LOL.
Sprayed it outside. Now im Letting it dry in the cellar. Its cold here in NY.
Different photo. Still 1 Coat of the Clear Rustoleum spray.
This looks great. The grain on the fingerboard looks lovely too.
I don't need another guitar, but this has got me thinking...
Smokes, I love this thread. Keep it coming. Can't wait to see the finished product.
My only issue is that I'm drill-aphobic.
Take pics of when you drill and how you align the neck.
I cropped out the fat on the background.
Thanks... I'm not gonna pre drill. This body is almost like balsa wood. That's how freaking light it is. Im serious. I hope I can mount stuff to it. Lmao
Sorry off topic for a moment... I built this last year. I named her Leslie after my girlfriend. The body came from Canada. Tonebomb. He has some nice body's. They run about $120 or so. I used a Turquoise Angellus Analine Dye with 3 Coats and 6 coats of Tru Oil. I won the neck on ebay for $200, its a Musikraft Neck. Sick neck.
Smokes, that looks amazing !!! Did the screw-holes for the neck line up?
Man, that looks amazing !!! You used a blue stain? The grain looks fantastic.
No, its a turqoise leather analine dye. Its made by Angellus.
1. The neck didn't have any holes drilled so it was an easy mount.
2. And yes the grain is quite amazing. Great company. Tonebomb in Canada.
Did the final clear coat just now. I'll start the hardware when it dries/cures really good. It could take two days or more I suppose. Its cold here in NY.
****I guess that's why Fender and other guitar manufacturers have wharehouses in nice climate zones, for their body's to dry decently.
@Angry Possum - BTW, did your friend ever pick up the NC in New Jersey for you?
Yes $50. Its a 1996 Squier Strat but not an affinity. Cool though I'm sure.
Oh that looks nice. If I ever get an electric guitar again I want it in natural wood.
