I'm considering a parts build - a strat, to be precise.
Most of the parts/electronics are fairly straight forward. However finishes stump me.
Here's my question: if I order a Warmoth body with a urethane finish, will it mate with a nitro neck without any reactions or problems?
I'll have my first ever roasted maple neck in from Warmoth this coming Tuesday. This is my first experience with roasted maple. It's the only neck they insure without a finish so I assume it's alright to use without one but i'm just curious if I should maybe put some tung oil or gunstock oil or...
$700 for that beauty is a steal. Thinking of getting all my guitars re-finished in leopard tuxedo.
Yup! Basically what it says in the title. I have the trans black as my main guitar and want a backup. I'm only interested in the natural finish one!
If you have one and want to get rid of of it, just toss me your offer! :yesway:
This popped up on the 'bay.

It actually took me two minutes of staring at it to get. Though depending on which shapes you focus on you may see the cool version immediately.
This was my red Charvel San Dimas body. I stripped it back in the hopes of having an oil finish, but the alder underneath was paint-grade (duh) not to mention it was a bitch to sand all the sealer out.
So I had this idea of painting it in that really "shabby old piece of driftwood" kinda way...
My Jackson DKMG with satin black finish, is now only part satin and a lot of fingergrease black finish.
It was my main live guitar for about 4 years and to be honest I didn't always take the time to properly wipe it clean after sweating all over it.
So now some parts are looking shiny...
Definitely a feeler, but alas I'm falling out of love with playing in lower tunings and the extra reach is unnecessary.
Ideally looking to trade this in Canada for a comparable 7 between 25" and 26" in scale length.

I think I'm developing a fetish for satin finish necks. Yesterday I caught myself stroking a Squire Strat with a satin neck. Feels nicer than my MIM Fender Strat with traditional glossy finish.
Do you guys have a preference?
Thumbs up for necks like JP60 or Wolfgang Special.
Is there a way...
Uncle Ben here with a brand new episode of This is Why You Suck at Guitar. Typically on this series, i've been giving you the straight poop on how to improve your playing, but this time, i'm gonna give you the straight poop on how to improve what you're playing on!

Just saw this vid on yt.
Seems like a good and simple project for my old 6 string Ibby.
Has anyone ever did this on one of their necks ?
What's your thoughts about it ?
BTW, I really dig the look of the headstock... Is it legit or a refinish ?

The seller modestly describes it as a "super hero refinish" but to get the full effect you have to imagine you are wandering the streets of a dystopian future metropolis at night. Who will purify this city from the taint of crime? Suddenly a steroid...
So after doing swirls for years now, my mind got restless and started wondering "but what else can i do to make a gigantic mess at my house?"... and i landed on this! Its a cool finish i stumbled into utilizing copper and silver leaf, lots of distressing, and oxidizing all kinds of...
So the guy who was going to buy my HM Strat simply can't afford it (only $180 actually) so I decided to get him to send it back. He agreed, and I will hopefully get my hands on it again next week.
So the plan is to upgrade with a Gotoh floyd, cut a custom HH pickguard for it, and refinish it...
It's been a while since I did a feature like this so here's something some of you might find of use if buying used gear. So when I got this KH1 to sell it was covered in stickers. Generally they fall into 3 categories; vinyl, plastic and paper. Vinyl and plastic are pretty easy to remove...
Alright, he is a pretty funny dude and very humble and you can tell he really cares for his fans, here is the letter.
Your old pal, Dave here. Been a while, eh? It’s been one hell of a year, that’s for sure. Looks like we’ve got some serious catching up to do! Hmmm, let’s...
