I started this project to celebrate my 50th year and do something definitive with all those years of experience. Then it became obvious that I needed to explain what exactly that experience was.
Dig the archives (and weep)
Nuts held by UPS!!!
I bought my nuts and files from Warmoth in the States, who previously supplied the body, neck and bridge for my guitar.
50th Anniversary Headstock
I've added a couple more coats of cellulose after the rubbing and levelling a few days ago, just to make sure I don't cut through when it comes to the final smoothing and polishing.
Please see my lawyer
So, the project will mean writing, recording and publishing songs...
The question remains, how do I distribute the material without some shifty bastard coming along and ripping me off?
Feel the Love (don't stop)
Writing the bio has been educational, not to say traumatic.
Nitro-cellulose - Mmmmmm
Rather than the usual method of using decals on the headstock of the guitar, I used a 'rubdown' - which is the same technology that Letraset originally built their fortune on.
To do to do to dey
Time creeps on apace etc...
Jazzrascals go down easy
Having said in the bio that the Jazzrascals site didn't conform to the usual accessibility expectations, I realised it was time to do something about it. So I've done a quick rebuild.
Confirmed - I hate soldering guitars
I managed to suss out what was wrong with the wiring in the guitar. One wire soldered to the wrong tag on a pot. It worked fine, just not quite the way I wanted it to.
The web site is ready
I've said what I need to say - the project should be clear enough now.
