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.
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").
Fitting my customised Musikraft Jaguar neck onto my Candy Apple Red "Original '60's" Jaguar body. Featuring some new Gotoh SD-510 tuners, and a StewMac neck shim.
Finishing the painted headstock on my Musikraft custom Jaguar neck. A few gremlins in the detail - but maybe I just have to live with some of my practical limitations, and focus on the overall effect.
Spraying a nitro "Candy Apple Red" colour coat onto a refurbished Fender Squier J. Mascis Jazzmaster body.
Finding a way to apply a really smooth and consistent metallic basecoat, for a Candy Apple Red re-finish job, on my Custom Fender Jazzmaster
It's going to be tough to exactly colour match the finish on my Fender body - but I should be able to get reasonably close...
I've finally had a chance to polish up the re-finished Jazzmaster body. To be honest - I think there are a few issues. Back to the drawing board?...
This gilded Stratocaster body has problems. Maybe not that serious - but I need to get a handle on them. Best solution I can think of - is to cover up the problem areas with go-faster stripes!
