Getting there.
Gone down the rabbit hole of lightly ageing stuff. I’m not into relic stuff but the new logo looked far too new so I’ve roughed it up a little to match all the old bits.
Just need to spray clear on the headstock now.

^ Looking solid, Jim! As Willie Nelson would say, time will take care of the rest, so just leave time alone…

Work slowed down on this as I’ve had lots of paid work on, an infected knee and the weather has been shit for spraying nitro. On close inspection after curing, I wasn’t happy with the clear coats I’d applied. A bit uneven on the back and still some rough metallic inside the horns so I’ve flat sanded and will spray the clear again once the weather improves.

Thanks. The weather looks good next week so I’m planning to finish spraying. I just want to play her again because it’s my favourite guitar.

Spraying done! Hard to capture the colour in a pic.

Looks sweet, Jim! And bonus points for not having underwear drying on the line behind it.
