Re: Covering an RG in fabric practice run (on a Tele guniea pig)
Now comes the hardest part: waiting till spring to finish it. But I have to make some choices: PUs, PU color combination, decal no decal... pffff choices.
This will be getting a black burst and a clear pickguard (i like the contrast of the kitschy flower fabric and the 'let's look under the hood' approach of a transparent pickguard despite the front route.
The RG was a bit harder to cover as it has more contours than a Tele. What was easier was to get the edges clean as the edge is a 90 degree angle on the RG body. The Mod Podge wet sands pretty well to a really smooth surface even though you have to watch out to not have the sandpaper too wet or else the glue dissolves again. I am almost worried that it might be too smooth for laquer to stick. I def have to do some testing ebfore i mess this up. And I hope clear coat won't be a problem like on andrewsfury's project.
I had to replace the tuners and the Cosmo black ones look really cool. Maybe i will replace the trem too, but i want to keep the spending to a minimum on this one. I'd rather invest in tools and equipment to get better at building and finishing.
