Prepping a two-piece, alder, "reissue" style Jaguar body - ready for spraying a candy apple red, nitro lacquer paint job
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.
Sealing an alder wood body for my JagStang build. As always - the best-looking finishes rely on proper preparation
Time goes by so slow... or so it seems sometimes. Obviously - some projects take time to assemble a sort of "critical mass" of componentry. Working with Fender parts can be a time-consuming thing for us "Limeys" - what with waiting for shipping and the inevitable customs clearances. Plus - I have to spin on a limited budget. Nevertheless - bits for the JagStang are beginning to roll in...
Another week - another look at the "Dragoncaster" clearcoat. The sanding sealer drop-fills have cured and shrunk back. Now I can see if the technique using sanding sealer works, and if I can continue to build up a lacquer coat over the top.
The body for the "Dragoncaster" has finally arrived. Before I can begin to add the dragon design by hand, I need to make sure the body is prepped well enough to take the paint well, and prove a suitable base to build the rest of the guitar upon. As with most things - preparation is everything.
It's all in the preparation and approach.
