I think you're right John. They are an extraordinarily unusual shape and Westbone's right too, just plain black really doesn't do anything to enhance the thing.

That said, mine was originally black as well (and buggered up on top of it mind) and the urge to brighten it up was very strong, so I know where youse guyz iz coming from. Here's mine for comparison. The colour reads as white in these pix, but the true colour is "butter cream", a little bit warmer.

If I do use lacquer, I'll certainly keep a log!!

Looking nice.
FWIW I use nitro-cellulose or acrylic (2 pack) on wood as it can take the wood expanding and contracting. Poly-urethane can be too hard and crack. Nitro cellulose was what the man in Fiddes recommended for guitars.
Not sure what you mean by lacquer, arent they all lacquers?

Thanks. Yeah the chrome had that sort of appeal to me too. I also have one of those 50's style thin Tele straps on it. Seems to complete the slight retro vibe.

Here's the thing mocked up; I haven't done with the lacquer yet... it has a few coats to go! It's on the bench for a flatting session...







I've hit a bit o'trouble, though; a small section of the veneer has lifted under the lacquer and I'm hoping that an amount of superglue injected under the veneer via a hypodermic syringe will fix that with little effect on what I've done so far. White glue will not inject through a syringe and needle.. its too thick. Anyone care to throw their hat into the ring; I'm open to all suggestions!!

Looking good John.

Pity about the bit of lift.

What I do is lift the veneer up with a stanley blade(if it's on the edge) and then with another blade with glue on a corner try and 'push' the glue under. Might have to do it a few times with just a smidgone of glue each time.

Would warming the glue up not thin it out abit..
Boiling some water in a pan with a glass bowl with the glue in .
Would have to be quick to use it ,though it might go off too...
Know it works with paints... Just thought it might help...

My son warms his superglue to thin it out for his model making, I can say 100% it works.....though there are different compounds of superglue and I cannot vouch for all.

OK kids, you can heat it. That does not mean you should. Evil or Very Mad

  • heating can cause a dangerous increase in off-gassing that you can do without (remember, it's cyano acrylate); and if accidentally burned, the concentrated gas is deadly
  • constant heating is detrimental; the super glue can be compromised by the heat
  • heat from the glue causes the parts you're gluing to expand & when it cools, it contracts; expanding/contracting puts stress on the bond
Be aware that it ain't a one glue cures all solution. Many times epoxy is a much better choice.

tip
It actually cures with moisture unlike most glues which rely on a solvent evaporating. To speed up the cure try a blast from a can of compressed air. The cool air causes moisture to condense on the parts being glued and accelerates hardening.

Deep breath anyone?

Just out of interest.

When we were miles from any dentist(in the bush) a cap came off my tooth. Glued it back on with super glue, didn't taste all that nice but it worked for about 4/5 months.

I've used it in the scrub to fix dogs that have been dealt to by wild pigs; I also used to carry tampons to stuff into deep wounds to staunch the flow of blood, too!

Got some funny looks from people when they saw my med kit, I can tell you, but it saved 4 or 5 dogs and 1 unlucky hunter!

Back OT.....

That's right, Damian; it's a tiny wee area about 1 inch long by 1/4 inch wide so shouldn't be too much of an issue, really!

Nope; that's just a bit that's catching the light and showing my lack of preparation!

The section in question is visible in the top pic, about halfway between the strap button possie you've noted, and the tip; it's visible as a slightly raised section on the upper, flyaway bout...

Just been playing with it a little; I can lift the edge with a craft knife but nothing I've got will fit in up to the top of the bubble and that includes my selection of hypodermic needles! That stuff that Barry has pointed out looks like the answer to a maidens prayers; thanks, man!!

Super glue does not add moisture, it relies on the ambient moisture in the air to cure. The more humidity, the faster the cure. Using the compressed air (with a fine directional nozzle) momentarily increases moisture around the bond by causing condensation. It normally evaporates very quickly, so no worries.

Interesting stuff this CA glue. Apparently, it has been tested for dental use (maybe not in the bush though!). It was rejected because it fails under constant compression and flexion...as you discovered. Razz

Rightio, gang; just an update... slow progress but here's the thing hanging in the workshop getting its gazillionth coat of clear after yet more flatting back.





Complete with a little sandthrough and a bloody nick in it...

Anyway, I'm going to complete it from here and damn the tiny flaws; I just wanna play it now!!

That Stewmac CA with the whip tips was just the ducks guts for that small lifted section; good catch, Barry; thank you!!

The neck is bolted up, probably for the first time in many years and various bits and bobs are screwed and bolted back together.



I'm hoping that the wafer 3 way switch I've got will be able to replace the box type OEM switch..



Anyone know where the blue wire on the right hand side of that switch goes to? These are a V/T/T set up eh?


I can see the light at the end of the tunnel, boys...
