Couple more finished pics of Bailey Build
I ran out of room for some finished pics...
@steveadams It’s a wonderful finish Steve, what oil did you use. I think the whole guitar looks wonderful. Well done.
Make guitars, not war 🌍✌️🎸
Thank you..I have made a couppe of telcasters and came across Mark's site. I used his course for the necks and was so pleased with the rsults...
This guitar was new challenge, carving etc...I've done a zoom with Mark and will be starting my acoustic build very soon..
I used the fides oil reccommended by Darren on the forum..was great went on sooo well
Your guitar looks killer! Great job for sure and the pro photos really help it shine. Are you also the photographer?
Practice on scrap...
Thanks for the comments...I am a director/camerman (or at east was before covid!!!), I took some of the pics but a cameraman friend was bored and wanted to try some guitar photography so he did some of the finished pics...
Good job. Wooden control knobs. Nice touch.
there were a few false starts with them..I finally got hold of the right size grub screws..
That is a nice build and a great finish, nice job.
Give up the news folks, it’s liberating!
It's in my Dad's hands now, so hopefully he's enjoying it..
@steveadams Great build ...I’m sure dad is over the moon?
I have too many guitars...said no one in the world..ever!
Yes, he was very pleased..we dont live close so not sure how much he's been playing...
@steveadams Wow man that is looking soo good. I can only hope my builds will give me similar results 😍
Thanks so much for your comment. I'm learning to take my time and be patient when building.. I think it's an underrated skill.. Ha ha..

Indeed it is and I have none of it but I make that up with plenty of exaggeration skills.. 🤣
Your guitar looks stunning. Hope it plays as good as it looks.
Unfortunately I'm no star player, but hoepfully it will bring pleasure to my Dad...

Really like this build, looks amazing! Any tips you can give with the grub screws on control knobs? Recently made but seems to strip out on me or misaligns.
I bought some grub screw internal threads..I initially tried just screwing the grub screws into the wood of the knob but didnt work....there are a few places on amazon that do the internal threads...I ended up buying a pack of different sizes....
