Three or four years ago after my friend and neighbor painted my Harley, I asked him if he’d used the left over paint on a Tele body I had laying around, he said sure. So I gave him an unfinished body that is routed and ready to assemble.

Some time passed and he told me he had a few other ideas that he wanted to play with and would I consider letting him have free reign and sole creativity. I’ve always done my best work and received the greatest feedback from unfettered artistic control of my projects, so yeah, have at it.

I was over at his shop a little while ago and saw movement on the project, I said to Laurie you’ve started the project, he said yeah but he didn’t want me to really see it until he was done. What I saw looked like a black undercoat and an area that was masked off. He also asked me a month ago if I had a home made Saw Palmetto brush with stiff bristles and I gave that to him a couple of weeks ago.

I’m looking forward to this build, I’ll have to see what he’s done before I can finish the design. Whatever he comes up with I’ll take my inspiration from it and do my thing. This project has cool potential. Maybe I should take a neck over to him before he sets too far into the project.

Apparently he isn’t too far into the project, he was glad to get the neck. I made sure he didn’t cover the fingerboard. Showed him the line between the fingerboard maple and the back of the maple neck.

That does sound interesting.

My interest is piqued!
