had another look at the tuners and they seem in usable shape, minus a missing button, so gonna use em.

after a cola bath, they look cleaner but still a nice tarnish to em.

now for some new buttons. drilled out some wood, then shaped and polished - el cheapo buttons for zilch cash

getting near the finish line now. got the humbucker wired in and strings on

headstock veneer looks not bad

omg, so well done- I am jealous- I like the idea with the bridge and what looks like extra support in the fashion of a trapeze. So good!

Wow this turned out great. What a transformation...

Awesome lookin Merle...job well done !!!!

 

I LOVE THIS!!!

thanks guys. this has been a fun little challenge to do.

here's a little sound sample - i'm off to party like it's 1929...

I like the vid and the guitar sounds just fine. What a result. Well done! What was the inspiration of the paint job on the back? anything special or just something you liked?

cheers lonman. the design is a kinda deco style which i remember from the old cinema here. was an amazing looking building from the 1930's.
