Purple SG

First coat of purple dye on the SG! Filling up those pores. Sanding it back on Monday afternoon to see how full the grain is, then a second dye, or grain filler if necessary. If the stain doesn't come out nicely, I'll probably do a solid baby blue instead.

A blue mahogany SG from a now-closed luthier from Florida. Depending on how the wood looks after this coat of dye, it will either be this purple or a baby blue.

Electronics - Ibanez ARC300

Pickup swap on this rare Ibanez singlecut! Stock chrome humbuckers switched to the traditional pairing of Dimarzio Super Distortion (bridge) and Dimarzio PAF '59 (neck).

An Ibanez ARC300 in Violin Burst; Dimarzio PAF (neck) and Dimarzio Super Distortion (bridge). This model was only made for a year or two around 2007, before being discontinued in favor of the ART series with sharper cutaways and hotter stock pickups - a more "metal" approach. These cover the whole spectrum a bit better, from jazz, to country, to hard rock and even heavier genres with the right electronics.

Cedarcaster

This telecaster is made out of reclaimed Cedar, hailing from Omaha, Nebraska. Today, it got some oil-based stain inspired by the scenery. The stain should be dry mid-week, allowing for another coat, or the beginning of the sealing and clear-coat process. Stay tuned for more updates!

This cedarcaster body came from a barn in Omaha, Nebraska. The reclaimed wood was reassembled and carved into this body; here it is before the stain.

Cedarcaster after the first coat of green stain. Filling up the pores for some definition; I'll sand this back and apply another coat later on.
