Thumbs up Squire Mini Fretboard Scalloped

Over the weekend, I scalloped the whole fretboard. It's a killer mini shred machine now. Looking good sitting next to YJM and 78 Strat.

Thanx

That would be because he hasn't posted any pics. Quote the post.

AlthoughI do agree, this thread is without value unless accompanied by relevant photography, lithography, or other pictorial representation of its subject matter!

Re: Squire Mini Fretboard Scalloped

How did you scallop? Did you follow the project guitar tutorial? My friend has a $100 dollar throw away guitar and I want to try and scallop it to get some practice on scalloping.

Re: Squire Mini Fretboard Scalloped

Hi newbieguitarmaker,

I used 1/4 file to do the rough scalloping. Wrap a skinny boll point pen with 320 or so and sand. Then finish with 500 or so. Although it's time consuming, it's very simple. As long as you cover the frets and do not apply too much pressure when sanding, you will not mess up the board. If you are happy with the result, seal the board with tang oil. For maple board, you might want to finish with a coat of lacquer.

Check out Project Guitar Web page for more info

Thanx
