Set #5 Triming the binding & finsh body sanding

Postby EFElliott » Sat Jan 31, 2009 8:29 pm

Well, I let the glue dry overnight, this morning I peeled all the tape off, then I took my little scraping tool and scraped the top and sides of the binding flush.

Routing the radius in the back edge.

Belt and drum sanding the back contour shape.

And hours and hours of hand sanding.

Well, I'm putting the bodies in the rack for now and starting the necks, after I set the necks I'll do the routs for the pickups, the 2 bodies that have the concave bottom carve are the "59"
AKA 61-62 Joe Maphis style guitars, they don't need much of a pickup rout, the're going to have the flat mounted "Dog Eared" pickups, also they will be routed for the recessed vibratos units. Going to have the mistake plates too.
