Default Another guitar

Working on another guitar for the band Needtobreathe. This will be for their charity event in Charleston in April.

Jazzmaster with a Bigsby B50, maple neck, macasser ebony fretboard, reverse headstock.

The body wood is roasted swamp ash, and the pickguard I made from walnut. I'll do a slight burst on body with a base of amber shellac, and I'll ebonize the pickguard using the same solution I use on my pens: steel wool dissolved in vinegar.



Here's what the body looks like wiped down with some denatured alcohol. It's going to make for a really beautiful burst.

Wow ... awesome story behind your guitars. Sounds like something I'd love to do ... but don't have time to do right now.
But way to go just putting your hesitations behind you and just diving into what you wanted to do. I love your mission of using old and historic wood.

Beautiful, but that could have been a lot of pens ;-)

I was able to start the burst coats tonight. I've still got probably 2-3 darker coats to spray on the edges, then it'll be ready for clear.
