Catching up with one of my Premier "2000" snare builds. Fitting the hoops, new Remo heads and NOS snare wires to a 1974 refurb
A second, vintage Premier "Elite" kit rebuild begins to take shape... but not necessarily how I originally thought it was going to pan out. Mahogany shells now?... Let's see how this late 60's, 14" x 8" "tuna fish can" tom cleans up first...
Spraying my "62 vintage" style Jaguar body with an Olympic White, nitro paint, and clearcoating with gloss lacquer
Drilling my replacement "62" Jaguar body for a tremolo. Ensuring the tremolo and neck are fitted straight and true.
Trying to match a 1970's Premier "natural" birch finish, using a modern polyurethane varnish. Close - but perhaps not quite what I'm after
Prepping and priming a two-piece, alder, "vintage" style Jaguar body - ready for spraying an Olympic White, nitro lacquer paint job
Continuing the saga of the repair, re-fit and preparation of two Jaguar necks, for a couple of my project builds. Lacquer repairs, finishing, hardware installation, and fingerboard toning
Applying the colour and clear coat lacquer finish, to my candy apple red, H/H Jaguar. Translucent Red over Shoreline Gold... plus cautionary notes on spraying lacquer in warm weather
Drilling my H/H Jaguar body for a tremolo. Ensuring the tremolo and neck are fitted straight and true.
"Keeping the neighbours sweet"... Muting my restored 1970's Premier "Elite" kit, for practice...
