Jag-Stang Project FINISHED Pg. 4

Recommended Posts

I usually just grab my bit that is just slightly too big for the existing holes to open them up. It the pot still doesn't fit, I got up one more and repeat until they do.

A week of stain and dry time. Then about a week of zpoxy sealer and light sanding. Then about two weeks of clear. Two coats a day and about twelve light coats total. Then one month of cure time.

Repair completed. I am very pleased with how the repair went in the end. Would be extremely hard to tell there was anything repaired there. Now I just need to keep saving to get that pickguard made. I have all the other parts.

Great "mistake"! Very nice finish.

One thing I'd consider is a pickguard that works with the grain and stain...an aged pearl, the yellowed pearl would really harmonize nicely.

Enjoy whatever ya choose!

Thanks! The plan is an aged looking red tortoise guard similar to Costello's Jazzmaster. Can't wait until I can get that guard ordered. :)

Small update. After several months of saving money only to have a bill come up, I finally got the tort guard ordered. Tony said he will be sending me the guard tomorrow in the mail. Once it gets here, it is assembly time! I have every other part. Can't wait for this to be done. Probably the longest time I have spent on a build. LOL

By the way, it is the red nitro tort with parchment (instead of mint) layers like what WD sells. For those who like their tort, I solute you. ;)

So I went to work putting the switches on the guard and pickups. Here is a mockup. (I still need to do the wiring.)

I love how this guitar is shaping up. I would, however, HIGHLY encourage people not to buy bodies from this guy. The gut routes ended up also being off. I had to dremel where the switches are to get them to fit correctly. Won't be visible, but another thing wrong with (Alden?) guitars.

I am really happy with the pickup sound. The neck pickup is really warm. The bridge on it's own isn't impressive to me, but I like the sound of them both together. :) It's a keeper.

Great work HNB! Not only does it look great it sounds great too!

If it's ok with you'll I put up a front page blog post with a few of your photos and video pointing folks to this forum thread. Let me know?
