Re: Finish ideas

I did keep the scraps of the wood I used for the top & I've been experimenting... I'm almost thinking a nice brandy wine color might work out the best. https://lh6.googleusercontent.com/-xjv1C0WQ7Wc/UXVbfmIiwqI/AAAAAAAAAFo/71tlkgm7g-g/h120/IMG_0509%5B1%5D.JPG https://lh4.googleusercontent.com/-q2sqQ...

Finish ideas

You guys have any input on a finish that would go well with a padauk fretboard? I was originally thinking an iced tea or honey burst would look good but I'm starting to think all blonde would be the way to go.

Re: My first build

My first attempt at an inlay. Patience is proving to be the key with the fretboard... I've had to rebuild because I hurried through the first one...

Re: My first build

It's a Gerber Sabre. Great for two dimensional stuff, but I've had to get really creative with jigs and such for any angled stuff.

Re: My first build

I guess I forgot to mention that it's not quite finished yet... But I'm really happy with how it's coming together.

My first build

This is my first guitar build. I gotta say, I'm HOOKED! I've been researching this for quite a while and learned a lot from reading these forums.
