I've had a while to rethink my original plans for this Jaguar, and instead of a "natural", shellacked finish - I'm going to spray a "white blonde" nitro finish instead.
A few "gentle stretches" to get back in the groove after my eye operation. Easy jobs at first. First off - I'm fitting a set of Gotoh tuners to a Fender Jazzmaster neck.
Last push to clearcoat my JagStang body, before I take a few weeks enforced lay off...
Another body prep job to fit in before the weekend. This time - spraying a Sonic Blue nitro paint job, onto my Warmoth JagStang body.
More essential body prep, before the enforced lay-off for my upcoming eye op. This time it's sealing and fine sanding an Ash Jaguar body.
With a lay-off fast approaching - I need to push on with a few spray painting jobs, so they can cure in the meanwhile. First-off - I'm priming the Warmoth JagStang body, ready for it's Sonic Blue, nitro colour coat
Sealing an alder wood body for my JagStang build. As always - the best-looking finishes rely on proper preparation
Polishing up the nitro clearcoat on a repainted, Fender Squier J. Mascis Jazzmaster body. The original "Antique White", body has been re-finished in a custom "Candy Apple Red". (Translucent Red over "Shoreline Gold").
The first stage of fine-finishing this swamp ash Jaguar body, is to apply a grain filler - followed by careful flat-sanding and burnishing
Stringing, and setting up my DIY replica, Wilko Johnson Fender Telecaster. Do heavier-than-usual strings make a difference?
