Been pretty busy despite the lack of thread updates. Just finished the finish on that Ibanez neck, now I'm working on the frets. I replaced the stock plexi Ibanez dot inlays with real mother of pearl, and replaced the stock crappy frets with stainless steel. Fret job is still in progress, but going well. The other neck is getting lacquer finish on the face of the headstock, then TruOil on the back and fretboard (maple board). Did the staining on this one today. Started by staining it blue then sanding it back, finished off by using an airbrush to spray the stain on evenly. There is a slight burst effect that I achieved by just spraying extra stain on the edges, giving it a darker appearance. The granadillo neck is going really well. The body is all the way through finish already, and on to curing before buffing. The lacquer cracked on this one, so I had to go backwards a bit and respray some coats, so it's back to being buffed out. It goes with the Ibanez neck above, and this project is very nearly done now.
