A Week in the Shop

A busy week in the shop: getting ready to spray a 3D-printed guitar body; learning to use metal rods for dot-inlays on a neck; and when copper insulation goes rogue inside a guitar.


A selfie of me in the spray booth, wearing all my PPE (respirator, eye-protectors, goggles), and behind is the over-exposed 3D-printed body of a guitar ready for spraying with lacquer.

A week in the shop

5 Feb 2019 - electronics, the dandy warhols, the-clydesdale

I work on the electronics for The Clydesdale guitar, I get some bits for my pedal-board and pedal projects, and I get to see one of my favourite bands.


A mustang-style guitar sits on the workbench. It has a crimson body and a white pickguard, into which are installed two chrome covered humbuckers. The neck is maple with a wenge fretboard.
