Thanks Mick.

Next up is fret level and polish on an Epi Les Paul and an Agile LP clone. These are easy jobs :o)

I'll play.
New nut for a tele, that's usually easy.
New nut for a Gretsch, that usually sucks.
Sparkle a lap steel, he said everything but the fretboard. That should be fun, at least it's not all contoured like a strat.

Will do Peegoo. The steel player at church really liked the red strat so he's thinking the orange flake with a little holo flake mixed in. It's one of those cheap Rondo lap steels so no big deal if I mess it up.

A pimp-daddy lap steel?

Wow. Things must be quite different these days in church.

I may have to start going again after many years :o)

I play all my wacky creations at church, they're more surprised if I play natural or normal colored guitar than they are at the weird ones. The pastor actually likes to play the clear acrylic light up strat. I did a whole set of sparkly tambourines for the kids to bang on while we're playing. Now they need sparkly metronomes.

Finally getting some forward motion on the LP Junior DC project I mentioned earlier in this thread.

I decided to wuss out and order a CNC'd MOP inlay. This gal does outstanding work.

I've done inlay work in the past, and something this simple would take me probably six hours, hunched over the bench. My back can't take that sort of abuse anymore :o|

This will look cool on the headstock of the mahogany neck.

Cool, I haven't done any inlay in a while. Tedius stuff but it is cool for the one off stuff, on occasion. Did she cut it and put into the overlay? I might need her number "o)

It is first rate. The hornbeam wood is routed and the pearl is inlaid, and then the plate is run through a thickness sander. There is no filler anywhere around the inlay.

I finally started the lap steel. Cheapo Rondo that was a hideous blue color. I filled all the old hardware holes and routed it for a humbucker. He wants to use some kind of bar stock for the bridge and nut so I doweled the old holes from the badazz style bridge that was on it. I also made a stencil for his name that will go somewhere. Instead of using a decal I used a gold orange red chameleon pearl paint and a stencil. It looked good on the scrap board I tried it on. Subtle red from one angle bright gold from another and it almost disappears when it turns orange. I shifted the stencil slightly after the black base before the pearl so it looks 3D. Here's a crappy pic for now. I'll try to get a better one when it's done.

I do enjoy a good sparkle. This ones not for me, I've only kept 2 guitars and one pair of clogs. All the other weird stuff have been gifts or an experiment that went wrong.

Sorry Peegoo, there must have been some miscommunications with my secretary. We shipped out the fuchsia clogs by mistake. We here at Sparkleglog.com appreciate your business so we'll send out a return shipping label. I apologize for any inconvenience.



Sincerely,
Mike Tracy CEO of Sparkleclog.com
