Re: Pineapple ukulele

Don't have the slightest clue why, I really like that body shape. It's very cool looking. Never knew it was called "Pineapple". The wood is gorgeous. Cedro is a type of Cedar (duh on me). My 12 String is Cherry and Cedar and I love it. That is one very cool looking Uke. How's it sound?

Re: White Spots on Spruce Top

Hi Peter,
I took your advice, dry sanded and cleaned with Naphtha. Am going to take it to the store and see if I can sorta match the color of stain. I like your idea about the "age" spots. Heck, this guitar is almost as old as some of my socks.
Thanks so much!

Thanks David, going to see what happens on a small piece of top.
Thanks!

Hi Barry,

Re: White Spots on Spruce Top

Hi Bob, Thanks for your reply. This is mostly parts. Not in very good shape either. I'm rebuilding these parts into a travel guitar. The neck is still attached to the top and is in very good shape. There were some very deep dings in the lacquer, scratches and even a gouge so I wet sanded with 800, 1...

White Spots on Spruce Top

Hi, I'm rebuilding a 12 string. 1970's Westminster Made in Japan. Sanded the top, it's Laminate. Then I got these white spots. Any idea what they are or how to fix? Thanks! (New member and first post).
