Picked this up in the sale area. I plan on painting it black with a matching headstock. Then I am going to sand through the black in some places showing the burst under it.

Here is what I am starting with.

Three random little holes?

Totally a refin. All black back. (With sparkles.... )

20150523_180439 by Christopher Louck, on Flickr

Non-Fender strap buttons...

Did I mention it is a refin? Yeah that is right... the burst is only in that one area. (Pickguard area is black.)

Got everything apart and steelwooled to be painted. Just waiting on masking tape.

I can't really imagine how this will look. So I am interested in the results.

Parts of it will show through again. Smile It is pretty bad really. It is yellow paint and black paint. A tiny bit of orange. Since it was painted over a finish, there is no wood showing through. Also the back was solid black. LOLOL

Headstock is done with black. I couldn't get a clean edge because it is dinged up, but when the rest is done, it should fit in fine since I am going to be kind of aging the body. Smile Once the lacquer cures, I will start getting clear on it. Smile

Not sanded, but satin spray done.

20150531_102400 by Christopher Louck, on Flickr

Started working on the back of the neck. All the shiny stuff is super glue in the dings and scratches.

Wore through the color coat in a couple spots, but looks worn, so no biggie. Main thing is it is smooth.

20150531_133950 by Christopher Louck, on Flickr

Also cleaned the fretboard.

I liked that burst a lot. Very in your face and cheap looking. Hopefully a good bit will shine through at least.

Got the guard Cooterfinger made for me. Here it is on the body with my tele switch plate.

20150608_182513 by Christopher Louck, on Flickr

I outlined the openings with a pencil so I could put a humbucker template over the markings to help center them.

20150608_182524 by Christopher Louck, on Flickr

Taped off the body and routed the spots 1 1/8 deep. (The neck pickup has long legs and I just figured to do both the same.)

20150608_190435 by Christopher Louck, on Flickr

Pickups fit fine.

20150608_192244 by Christopher Louck, on Flickr

Some black paint to make it look sort of like it is supposed to be like this. LOL

20150608_192858 by Christopher Louck, on Flickr

Body still needs to cure more, but it looks good! I will likely just do matte black and let it wear through on its own if it does.

Long time no post on this project. To be honest, I got it close to being assembled and just wasn't excited about how it was going to look so I stopped working on it.... for almost two years... LOL I have a new plan and have some new steam. This is the last back burner project I have going on. Kind of excited to get it done. I didn't like the idea of all black with white guard and black pickups. Just kind of felt blah to me. I am doing to paint the body white and sand through to the black in some spots and such. I am going to go for chrome humbuckers. I am leaving the headstock black. I acid bathed the metal parts and have them rusting at the moment to go for a beater look. I am leaving the upper plate empty. The switch plate will just have two switches and no filter switch. That hole will be empty. The volume plate will just have a volume pot and knob so the second hole will be left empty. I kind of thought going for a haugepauge look might be kind of cool. At least it is exciting me to finish. I have the white done. I did two cans and will let them dry for a week before sanding. No clear since I want to sand through to the black in the usual places. Forearm, upper control area, and back belt/tummy area. I stained the white guard after sanding it to a matte finish so it has a beat up look. Anyways, here are the pics.

That volume control plate is a tank. It is back in the acid for a longer soak. It barely has any difference compared to the other parts. Here is how they are looking. I am pretty happy. I know that this kind of look is not natural. It isn't really what I am going for exactly. I want them to look beat up instead of shiney and covered in fingerprints. I also "aged" the white switches with dark walnut stain. Rubbed it on and wiped it off. It builds up in the little lines making them look kind of dirty. I like it.
