I’ve been working on a ’59 and a ‘62 Duo Sonic build and I thought I’d show the necks I refinished for them. I’m pretty much just waiting for decent weather to paint the bodies and they’ll be finished. These necks looked pretty rough when I got them but I think they both turned out really nice.

1962 DuoSonic neck “Before Pics”.

Hidden: 




Water stains.



Notice the chip on the lower side of the headstock.









1962 DuoSonic neck “After Pics”.

Hidden: 


Chip repaired.















1959 DuoSonic neck “Before Pics”.

Hidden: 




Chip at the A tuner hole.

The '59 will be Desert Tan and the '62 will be Maroonburst.

Those sunbursts are pretty obnoxious anyway. It won't show if you mess up much anyway lol. Obnoxious in a good way by the way.

Excellent restoration work, I love how they still look old, just in a lot better condition.

Thanks. That's really what I was trying for. I'm using vintage parts to build these and I'm trying to match the age and wear to the hardware I have for each one. The maroonburst will be painted over Desert Tan and relic'ed slightly to match the hardware and neck. I read that Fender had a bunch of Desert Tan bodies they covered with Maroonburst in '62. I found some excellent photos of a Maroonburst over Desert Tan that I'll use for reference. It had some really cool wear areas that show the tan underneath.

Just need to wetsand and buff the body then put it together. I hate wetsanding so I've been putting it off.

It does suck. What color? And did you find all vintage parts?

The Mustang is Daphne with all vintage hardware except tuners and electronics. It'll have a set of vintage wound Bullock pickups.
Since you reminded me about the body I went ahead and wetsanded it today. Now it just needs buffing out.
Thanks for the kick in the ass. Wink

Haha you are welcome! That looks great! Majorly jealous of the neck. Is that my old body?

Brilliant work. That wood has new life to it. The first one had some odd, foreign colors happening and the second one looked like a tool from the tobacco or pork industry. You can't even find the chips now.

I'm glad this got bumped. Missed it the first time.

Wizardry as always. Fantastic job.
