I picked up another Strat at the pawnshop for 79 bucks. Squier Bullet Strat by Fender. At that price, I couldn't resist. Problem is they had 2 other nice guitars that were beckoning to me and marked…Continue
Like the title says, I was on the YT last night and found this band. They sound great. 1 guy sings and plays guitar and one guys plays drums while doing the bass lines on a keyboard. 2 guys and they…Continue
"Yes. I like the line. Veneer is cool too. Quick super flat strong veneer application: Coat both the veneer and receiving wood (head stock) with wood glue. Let dry till tacky, almost dry, position and iron together at the highest setting. Brown paper…"
"Yes Daniel, glue application is important. I also keep in mind that one of my surfaces is end grain and that can effect strength of the joint by absorbing more of the glue than the other close grain surface, [see photo above] this could also…"
"I have to say what my mentor always said,,,,,"it's all about the glue joint". Simply meaning the glue will be stronger than the wood. If you stood on it after thorough curing, the wood would splinter, not the joint. Bit unorthodox,…"
"On those mylar type materials there is usually one side that is transparent and one side that is aluminized. you might get different results depending on the side you apply the glue on. You migth also want to check out Make Magazine's adhesive…"
"I hear you. My playing skills are weak (understatement) but I'd like to get a four string built up and try out that CGCdsharp tuning Neanderpaul talks about in his old YouTube video. Probably won't turn me into a guitar hero but it looks…"
"Paul, Lock'tite outdoor didn't hold. Was a bite to sand off the guitar. I have Mod Podge. But honestly don't think it will work on this plastic. I also have Barge. But don't think I can finish over the top of it. Know that will…"
"Taffy - that's the way I've been doing mine as well. So far they've worked fine on 3 string guitars and 4 string ukes without any failures. The lines do show up in the finished product since I normally just do clear…"
"Sounds like a good plan, hadn't thought about stippling it on with a brush, and glad to hear you're keeping that brush pretty dry - should work. To help keep everything flat, after you clamp down the material, you might want to use a…"
"Yeah that looks good. I go the other direction so I don't have to add a headstock veneer to cover the joint which is usually a bit off/messed up due to me doing it all by hand tools and practically no jigs. That's changing now."
"Hi Paul, thanks for that info, now I see and understand. You cut from the nut back into the neck whilst I cut from the nut forward into the peghead.
I was working on this resonator neck yesterday and that's what got me thinking. You can see how…"
"The scarf joint line starts back side of nut and goes back to almost halfway between the 2nd and 3rd fret in that pick. The joint also has the 2 dowels running through the neck around the first fret area.
You can see the dowels on the back side of…"
"I saw a diagram from a Google search that showed a 3/4" thick piece of wood which is what we get when we buy a 1" thick board. The piece was laid on it's 3/4" side and a line was drawn across for the back side of the nut area(A)…"
"MadGomer. Tried an experiment using a good paint brush. Tapping with just the ends like you would stenciling. Using a dry brush technique I got good results. Like the clamping idea. Think i'll use two pieces of thin wood to hold it longways.…"
