It’s On…

June 1st, 2008

Since Friday I took care of some crucial errands and tasks to progress my extra-musical activities. First I got a package of shims and stuffed them into the rear cavity of my Washburn electric (the solid body I use most often–a really nice guitar that I vow never to drill a hole in.) Doing this helps transfer vibrations to the body and allows for better sound and sustain. I also took it in to Twin Town for a setup–its first professional
setup since 2000 when I bought it.

While the guitar was away, I made a decision: I’m going to completely refinish the Jackson. I bought three grades of sandpaper and stripped all the paint off the body this weekend, down to the bare wood. Tomorrow I’m going to a wood shop to do the routing. I bought a piece of alder to glue in, then I’m going to route the new single coil cavity. The whole thing will get a shiny new paint job in the end. So, no Telecaster hardware. It’s getting a Strat hardtail bridge.

The guy at the Youngblood Lumber informed me of a place down on Central (which I can’t remember the name of) that will plane wood for $30. So I got the big piece of Mahogany planed down and it’s ready to get cut as soon as I make a template.
