Guitar duex (or the beatles reboot)

I am trying my hand at making another guitar, this time, playing with leather, and different colors, and just having fun… THIS is my progress so far


I left the ‘soot’ on the ring and then covered it with a flat coating, to give more of a shadow effect so the center looks deeper.


This looks wonderful!!

This is all Baltic birch, I am getting the different wood effects, by using different stains, and then taking some shop towels, and rubbing off the excess and adding boiled linseed oil onto a shop towel to muck with the lightness / darkness of the stain. (rubbing linseed oil onto stained / still wet wood)

I love what you did with this. Keep going. Your experiments come out as beautifully finished products.

Nice job on that! I’ve always liked that design. It just looks so realistic.

yea, so do I


It’s amazing how something as small as adding leather can make this look so much warmer! I can’t think of any other words for it but this is such a great touch!

LOL thanks! the DEVIL is in the Details
