Back has it's second coat. Tough balance. I want it white, but I also want to see the grain through it.

Thanks! Now that the sealer dried, it was ready to add my images.

20151118_075728 by Hentai No Baka, on Flickr

I glued them down with some decoupage glue. Here is the back.

And the front.

Tomorrow night they will be ready to get damp and rub off. It should just leave the black image behind. We will see.... Smile

Decoupage was a bust, so I ended up defaulting to my go to and made some decals for it. Those look awesome. (The decoupage paper was rubbing off instead of transferring the printed image. Oh well, I tried....)

Not sure if I explained the imagery, but the Buddhist goddess there is my wife's favorite. We have a statue of her in our room. She is the goddess or mercy and children. As a teacher, I am pretty fond of her. This image was a modern painting of her that I made black and white and edited. The lily is a symbol for my daughter. I have one (not this image specifically) tattooed on my leg with her name. The symbol is spring. (Chun)

On the back I have a poem about spring and peace as well as a sparrow. That is an image I have tattooed on my leg for my son. (Not this specific one, but it represents them.)

Looks great. I really like the front. Too bad about the decoupage but at least you won't need as much clear this way. Cool

Thanks! I am grateful to not have to do too much more clear wise. Maybe two more wet sealing coats and I will be able to work on it more tomorrow.

I wiped on some dark walnut stain and wiped it off. It gives it a darker aged tone and helps the white pickguard stand out better.

Yeah, I see where this is goin. That walnut stain is a very nice touch with the beautifully selected, carefully arranged decals. You might consider aging the pickguard a bit...? Maple neck?

Beautiful work. And really like the choice of three SCs for a truly unique JagStang. A JagStangStrat?

Cheers for New Years,

Doug

Progress. Smile I had to dowel the neck so I can redrill the holes. They don't match up to the body. I was able to get the body finished. I am pretty happy with the look honestly. The neck pickup is a bridge Jaguar pickup. The middle and bridge are a custom Mustang set. They noise cancel like a strat does. There is a 500k volume pot and a TBX tone pot. The mini switches are used to bypass the controls and go straight from the switch to jack. Tele hardtail bridge and knobs.

Neck is attached. I put in scrap strings to make sure I drilled it straight. Once strings arrive, it should be ready to rock. Should be interesting to hear how the pickups sound in this setup.

All done. All went as planned except position two is out of phase. I don't see myself using neck/middle enough to take it apart to rewire at the moment, so it will stay that way for now Unfortunate thing that happens when mixing pickup makers. Wink Sounds great. Pretty much sounds like a strat. LOL

Looks great. The wash of dark stain really gave it a nice feel.

That looks great, my version of decoupaging on a build I did last year was just to print out images on the house inkjet, cut them up and stick them on with PVA glue, then when dry, a few coats of clear.

Looks the same, but I changed the guts and I also changed the switches. I installed a set of Texas Special pickups. Sounds much better and honestly sounds like a Stratocaster which was sort of the goal. I like how strats sound, but don't tend to like the bodies or something about them. The middle switch between knobs turns on the neck pickup in any position so I get seven sound options. The lower one is a kill switch now.
