One more week of curing for the clear-coat on this mahogany neck. Maple fingerboard with black inlays and a black gloss headstock.
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.
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).
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!
