Set #12 Preparation and painting

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

I've done a bit of touch-up sanding, masked the fingerboards and blowen all the dust off,
Now we're ready to start painting.

I'm Spraying the first sealer coat on one of the "59 Maphis customs" after 6 coats of sealer and a few days drying time I'll sand the sealer smooth then start the color coats for the sunbursts.

Here I'm flat sanding the sealer-base coat, on the second photo you'll notice the back contour is a lot deeper that the one on your Mosrite, or Mosrite clone, unless you have one of 25 '62 Maphis' or the first few '63 Ventures model. There's so many cool features on the '62 Maphis,
And that's the guitar that sold Nokie and the rest of The Ventures on Mosrite, it's a shame as time went on a lot of the cool features disapeared.

I've got the sealer sanded nice and smooth. Now it's time for the Color!
First translucent yellow, red and then a special mix of black.
