Hi there guys, I had another long weekend (revolution day over here) so I managed to finish my first cgb, whee!
So, first I did the last polycrylic coat(satin) and wet sanded with 1200 grit, the plan was to do some polish to the finish… but it turns out that, when wet sanding this finish it looks and feels just like the necks in 3 of my factory made guitars – natural matte look, and smooth to the touch- which I love a lot so no polish needed!, and that means a lot less elbow grease too hehee.
Let’s see what I did this weekend:
Piezo, bridge ground, volume pot and jack wiring, also you can see the little wood triangles in the corners, I added those to fix the lid with screws as it was buzzing a little:
You can see the screws here, silver 4-40×1/4” hex button screws to match the rest of the hardware:
So, I’ll call it done!:
(this photos are before the screws)
I’ll add a couple more photos like the next one in the project page ;)
Aaaand, as Mauricio and Mads requested, here’s a tiny video of me playing the guitar, some comments first:
It’s been some years since I played guitar regularly
Is taking me some time to get used to this string spacing
While fretless, the action in this guitar is low enough to be played without a slide like I did, but is not easy, my fingers still hurt :D
That being said, here you go, please turn up the volume some to hear it ok:
