haha thanks to you, my husband decided that his bass was no longer pretty enough black.  So I spent over 12 hours getting his painted for him, but I wanted to show you what you inspired Cheesy


If I could buy the world a coke, then I would say "SCREW YOU WORLD" and go buy more fabric.

thanks to all of you!  Grin

grace: yeah, stripping the tough finish of a guitar SUCKS. it's hard on your lungs, takes time and makes some noise, and at the end your arm aches horribly (but not as much as after hand polishing it:p) but in the end it's worth it!

captain outrageous: the painting was done in an afternoon, but the stripping, varnishing, polishing and putting back together parts were too long to be enjoyable:p

mamafen: that's one rockin' bass guitar your hubby has there! lucky guy! it's nice to see I inspired this^^

That's really awesome! I'd never have the patience for something like that, and I bet putting it back together was rough. Btw, congrats on making best of Craftster 2008!

xXxshadow_bloomxXx: actually the longest and hardest part was to remove the original paint and sealant, and to polish the guitar once the work was done. the rest wasn't that hard or long at all!

I have an old acoustic guitar of my Father's. It was his first guitar (bought used when he was eight, which would make it, oh, at least 56 years old). He didn't like the sound it had, so he sanded it, and coated it with beeswax.

Since he died in 2008, I've been meaning to do some artsy didicace to it (possibly woodburning). Since its already sanded... But I wonder if it would be a sin against the guitar to do stuff to it??

Brilliant work! Now, If only I could draw something that awesome, my project might turn out alright....
