The fretboard radius-ing is in progress and my Crafter (Sataev)
plans to finish carving (headstock bevel, heel, etc) and also to
install the Stainless Steel fretwire today and on the weekend.

He expects it will be ready for first layer of "sealer lacquer" on
Tuesday or Wednesday.

Update!

I was a little surprised to discover today that my guitar's neck
has not actually been set yet. The friction fit of the neck joint
is so tight that you can hang the guitar by it. That's a good
indicator that it will be a very strong 'n' solid set. :vampire:

When my Crafter (Sataev) finishes fretting, he will set the neck and
soon afterwards give the body its first "pore-filler" coat of sealer
lacquer. That should happen Wednesday or Thursday, probably...

I have Officially decided not to have a Logo put on my Axe.

I feel relieved.

The neck has officially been Set. The Head Stock bevel has been
carved, the Black binding and white side markers are on and the
first sealer coat of lacquer has been applied.

It looks amazing, I'm almost tempted to have it left as is, it looks
great with the wet looking mahogany grain showing.

This will get sanded right down to bare wood again later this week,
and the actual paint work will commence shortly afterwards.

I can't wait to see her all painted up and sexy lookin.

Small Update

Here are a couple pics from the paint room today. :D

and one more with a closeup showing the "lip" of the trem cavity...

PS: that "block" you see sticking up there is a special painting fixture, it will be removed after painting...

Stealthy 2009-07-01 23:02

Update time.

Here are some more pics, prepping for silver (silver bevels will be
done soon). After the bevels are painted front and back it will get
the first clearcoat.

After that's cured - the back of headstock art will be applied.

Then, final clearcoats...

Haha, DAAAAAAAAMN, no one gives a fuck about this thread.








Also, if it's a CUSTOM model, why do you want it to be a copy of another model? And even have a bandname on it?

Haha, DAAAAAAAAMN, and why the fuck not? It's his money.

Stealthy 2009-07-02 15:16

I changed mind a few weeks ago since I had that idea for the funny looking
PanterA logo, Don't worry kidz--> it will now have no logo at all. :smash:

Yeah, and I was just asking. By the way, are you (Deathmaster) the man behind Daemoness-guitars?

No offence, but who would ever want to play on that Antichrist-model? I would NEVER forgive myself if I got even the tiniest bit of bucklewear on that paintjob, daaaaamn.

Edited for Stealthy

And I can appreciate that custom model a lot more now, body shape isn't my thing though. Just never understood hwo you could be on stage for your band sporting "advertisement" for another one. On your instrument.

I'm not the man, but I am involved. I have played the Antichrist and I wouldn't buy it personally for the fact it doesn't have a trem. I believe the clearcoat finish Dylan uses is pretty tough, but if it was really a problem, I'd spend a few quid on a less damaging belt! ;) My own Daemoness custom has been through a good couple of years worth of rehearsals and gigging and there is one minor scratch, and that's on the anodized aluminium control cover on the back. Depends on how you look after your baby I guess!

Its has arrived.


The Bill 'n' Becky Bill Lawrence L500XL has finally arrived at the shop.

The painting process still isn't complete yet because the painter
wasn't at the shop for a few days but I thought I'd post some more
teaser shots for the hell of it.

The back bevel is not 100% the same as the Original Burnt Black Washburn 3ST's back bevel. They have carved & painted the back bevel to more accurately match the front bevel (unlike the original Washburn version). I'm glad it was carved that way. It looks like it provides a neck heel that will be more comfortable to play when I think about it.

Update.

Right now its in the paint room entirely covered in a polishing
compound. That's why it looks so dirty. I'll have much more to
report in a few days hopefully.
