What exactly is the Z Poxy?

I used True Oil on an old 1978 Musicmaster neck that most of the finish was sanded off. Good results. Some of the leftover finish was darker.

Z Poxy is a two part finishing resin that isn't super picky about being perfectly 50/50 mixed. I use it as a sealer and filler. Smile

Damn you work fast, it usually takes me weeks and months of fretting and procrastination before I can do the slightest of things, like moving from 220 grit to 320. Very nice wood and stain.
I like the traditional tele cup, what I really like is that 45 dollar Rutters press fit cup, I wish some one would knock that off

Work is good because it keeps me from rushing to an extent. Normally I would have done another coat this morning, but I had to get to work so I will only do a coat on one side every 24 hours which is slower than the instructions, but helps make sure the layers are solid before I add more. I am thinking one more coat all around should do it. (Three total.) Then I will gently sand it and start putting tru-oil on. If it doesn't look nice and flat, I will do a fourth coat and even a fifth. I am putting it on very thin to avoid liquid bubbly resin that I would end up having to sand off. For the next coats, I will thin it with denatured alcohol so it will apply flatter.

I sanded the zpoxy filler smooth. There are still little grain areas that aren't totally full, but the tru-oil should do the rest.

First coat of tru-oil. (I put it on kind of thick. I will wait 24 hours before I lightly sand it with fine sandpaper.)

My bridge and hotrail pickup came in. Smile

So I learned something about tru-oil. (The hard way of course.)

I was putting it on with a plastic glove and spreading it all over. I found out I was putting it on too thick. It was drying with liquid bumpy bits and such. I sanded it flat (which I wouldn't have needed to do if I had done it right) and applied it using a paper towel. Basically I am now rubbing it on instead of putting it on the body and spreading it around. Seems to be working better this way. Dries faster as well.

Finish is drying so I can use 3000 on it to get it satin'ed up. Smile

Here are some updated pictures. I got the neck on, neck pickup added, switch wired, electrostatic cup attached, and pickguard ready for the screws. I am still waiting on the string ferrules for the back of the body, the string tree, toggle switch tip, and pickguard/control plate screws. I used some fun quirky knobs on it. I like that the black plays off of the guard and bridge pickup.

It is basically done now! I installed the back ferrules and the other parts. Just need the switch tip.
