When I got my tele thinline a few months ago, I thought it was quite pretty. But I always thought it would look _really_ sweet with a natural wood pickguard. Many hours of cutting, dremelling, sanding, staining, and polishing later...

:)

It was a ton of work, and could probably stand to be sanded / polished a little more, but overall I'm pretty happy with it.

Looks nice, what did you use for wood and finish?

Thanks guys. :) The wood is just cheap 1/8" birch plywood I found at the local craft store, and the finish is reranch alcohol-based dye (dark red mahogony), with deft sanding sealer and lacquer on top.

PS- huh. I just went to the reranch site and it's all screwed up. Every page asks you for authorization. They must be having a hard time making any sales... I had this dye hanging around from a previous project...

Great job on the guitar. :D It's something I've often meant to do - refinish a guitar and replace some of the tackier plastic bits. So it's excellent to see somebody actually do it instead of just dreaming about it.

Cheers,

Chris

I got three today for show and tell.


This is my Lyon by Washburn. I don't know a model number, it came in a starter pack from Target. My first guitar, just wanted something cheap to bang around with. I still love this guitar and luckily since it was so cheap, I'll never have to worry about the whole "trade-in or keep" issue because it probably has absolutely no resale value!


This is my Epi LP Special II. Got this 9 months after the Lyon. Once again, wanted a cheapie and my buddy who is the most talented musician I've ever met started with this model and spoke highly of it. Once again I got my money's worth.


This is my Taylor 410CE. It's less than a week old. It was just too good a deal to pass up ($400 less than I have seen on MF.com). Also got a free strap thrown in. I'm too scared to play it though, I don't want to ruin it, so the Lyon remains the work horse.

Well thanks for indulging me. I have to say that I have found these boards a blast to visit. Thanks to ColoradoFenderBender for "INSISTING" I post the Taylor.

The Taylor is beautiful. All guitars are beautiful - even those that are beat up.

Play that Taylor. Beat it up. I'll bet it sounds better than it looks.
