Demo Guitar #1

Assembly

Well finally the finish work on the custom guitar is complete. Now it is time for assembly.
The set up process, to me, is almost “zen” like. This is where the guitar’s feel and sound comes to life. First, control pot cavity is completely shielded with aluminum tape then the control pots are dropped in and sodered to the pickups.
After the tuners are installed the bridge is placed and the the nut is cut entirely by hand. We make our nuts from raw materials this way we can have total control of the quality. From there we set up and adjust string height, intonate and complete fret work as needed.
When it’s time to play test, the best part is hearing what kind of character the particular guitar will have.Demo Guitar #1

Base coat….Almost there!

Once the base coat goes on the grain really begins to “pop”. Even though it is the beginning of a tedious process, this is where a guitar really begins to look like a guitar. This will be the first of many coats that will create a smooth gloss finish. The blue on the fretboard is tape so finish doesn’t get on the fretboards playing surface.
