A brand new Warmoth Telecaster Thinline body, ready for some fresh nitro lacquer!
Smooth access cutaway - a nice touch
Filling the pores in the swamp ash with some oil-based grain filler
After first nitrocellulose lacquer sealer/binder coats
Now on to the 'Gretsch Orange' shader coats
The shader coats are left to dry, and then will be sanded smooth and topcoated with clear lacquer
After the clear lacquer has cured, it's color-sanded and buffed to a high gloss
Initial assembly has begun!
String ferrules are fitted
The finished guitar looks great, and sounds even better. Look for this one on the 'big stage' soon!
