At least when it's one of your grandkids...  :(

Worked the first half of the day, then kids and grandkids came out for the afternoon.  Didn't know it, but one of the granddaughters is studying to be a pediatric nurse in the Air Force.  Go figure.  From all the news, just doesn't seem like a good time to jump into the military...

It did, Smurf.  Met some new neighbors, got to see a couple we hadn't seen for a while, and just had a good chat.  And everybody enjoyed the food.  We enjoyed it.  But now tomorrow and Monday will be cleaning up and moving a ton of stuff again...

I'm glad to hear that so many did show up with the weather being so sucky, and glad everyone had a good time! ;D

That included you folks also, right?! 8)

Well, after all that work it's over.  Did rain all day, so it was an inside affair.  And of course the rain kept a few from coming, ended up with 36.  All had a great time chatting and eating, it was worth the work.  And I have leftovers.  Now, song stuff...


May 19, 2018, 03:44:08 PM
I hope today is going well for you my friend!

Morning strangers .
Hey Joom no coffee outside this morning .


May 19, 2018, 08:56:30 AM
Welcome to my world Joom hope it all works out ;) there’s always left overs :)


May 19, 2018, 01:01:11 AM
Well, everything is ready to go, whether it's inside or out.  Tons of prep work, lots of food ready to cook, and today the wife baked 4 cakes and 50 cupcakes for dessert.  We have food for 50, but with the rain I don't expect more than 30 or so.  In any case, won't be back here till tomorrow night...


May 18, 2018, 05:08:45 PM
Some probably won't come, and the rest will all have to fit in the house somehow.

Why me Lord?
What have I ever done
To deserve even one
Of the days that I've had

Ah well...  :P

Got the 2 picnic tables hauled in and set up today, 30 lawn chairs ready to go, tables to cook outside, lots of other crap, and just saw that now they're calling for rain tomorrow...  :o >:( ???


May 17, 2018, 05:26:30 PM
Computer problems all fixed for the day.  Just corrupted system files.  They're happy.  Now to the real work stuff...


May 17, 2018, 10:43:50 AM
Well, gotta go fix a computer problem, then back to prepping for Saturday.

Have to find time in there somewhere to write a song...  ???

I'm just being silly based on neil's comments of weed varieties.  In my head, it was funny to associate Acoustic Alchemy to weed shops.   ;D ;D

I've been trying to get time, W, but the last 2-3 weeks have been one thing after another, every day.  And I don't see a break till maybe next Monday...

I’ve never seen that high grit in any of my reading....

You're right, I guess you wouldn't use 800 on bare wood. But. my headstock already has a satin finish, so that's where it's advised......  ~:)

Wouldn't mind an LP, but the price rises for the better kits..... Thinking about an Epi, instead, much cheaper. Not the same, but near as.....  ::)

Thanks White!
I’ve never seen that high grit in any of my reading....but you’re right....that will be soooooooth lol

I’m toying with the idea of not painting the neck....haven’t finally decided but I’m leaning toward leaving it au naturel......

The only reason I’m building a Tele is because it’s a Thinline, already have a cheap solid Tele  ;D

(And the kit was cheaper lol if it doesn’t turn out, it’s less of a “loss” ;D )

I might have gone with an Explorer had this place had one...never been sold on an SG, which was the other option....

Good start, Neil!

I'm currently refinishing the headstock of my Strat'. But, I'm using 1500 grade wet and dry (I read 800 was a must)......  :o
Gonna be smooooooth.  ;D

Semi-gloss is what it needs to be.

Looking forward to following your progress. I sometimes toy with the idea of building a Tele' style guitar. Then I have a ciggy and a coffee and get over it.... LOL  :P

I know absolutely nothing about baseball, but I had heard of joe dimaggio, so I thought that was a good place to start...a great idea for the Challenge by the way ~:)

I don`t know what I`ve done when uploading this track but I seem to have affected onetrack and way2lon`s track...not sure how to fix this....

Here is my  Deluxe with large headstock to use as a sample.

Nice work so far NM from that horrible square headstock that comes in the kit ;) ;) 8)

Does the kit come with two wide range humbuckers or two single coil pickups.

I don’t think this thing is going to need an awful lot of sanding.....

Been going over it with a 220 grit, which doesn’t seem much of a jump from the “out of the box” finish.....if I had to guess, I’d say it came with a 180 grit finish maybe....very smooth, could probably have painted it right out of the box....might not have been quite there for a stain or a clear finish, but a solid colour would probably have worked....
Very, very few blemishes on the wood - just the odd tiny ding ( I counted maybe four) that had to be sanded out, nothing big enough to require filling.....might have been the luck of the draw of course, but pretty good for a kit I’d have thought....

Anyway, tomorrow might give it another go round with the 220, then up to the 330 and she should be ready for paint....

The pictures don’t really let you see very much difference but here’s a few body shots anyway.....
