    Default Check OUT what Dino knocked out for me...

    Guys-
    Dino REALLY did one hellva job fixing up my Satch. I saved this one from the Guitar Center. As you will see in the pics, whomever owned it beforehand did something screwy to it...its like they took a screwdriver to the body, near the tremolo, and TORE a piece of the wood off! Look at what Dino did for it!
    The damage done:






    The stripping Check out all the paint, as well as the repair):


    The initial prep:


    The initial epoxy:


    More prep:
    Eddie must think I'm a BOZO to want to drop THAT much on one of his new Charvel Guitars!

    Another coat of Primer/Sealer:


    The white basecoat:


    So, what color? I own a Verizon LG Envy. I really thought it would be cool to have it painted close to that. I think Dino got real close (remember, lighting affects the pics).

    Waiting for the clearcoat:


    Before and After:




    Dino says this is the closest he could get to trying to capture the pearl in the pic:

    the satch model is one great looking guitar.

    that has to be the coolest shade of red i've seen.

    really great work.

    Looks damn good... but I can't say I'm surprised. Everything we've seen of Dino's work is top-notch.

    Speaking of that... Dino, did you get my PM about clear coats?

    WOW! That color looks FANTASTIC on that guitar.

    Excellent choice and excellent work, Dino.
    How open-minded do I have to be before my brains start spilling out?

    Thanks guys!
    The color is HOK "Pearl Ultra Orange" and it's a bitch to photograph.
    The color photographed more "orange" in my shop than the finished pics ...

    SHOP


    FINISHED PICS






    To fix the damage, I lifted the split wood, applied TiteBond and clamped it overnight.
    Then I used masking tape to form my mold of the missing piece and filled it with marine epoxy.
    This stuff works great for repairs like this.
    Dolphin Glaze and/or Bondo is okay for filling scratches, but for structural repairs, I prefer using either real wood or this stuff. With the damage being so minor, I figured this was the better route.



    And here's the finished repair ...

    The marine stuff is great. Dont shrink in small apps.
    A composite is the rout I wouild have went though.
    Mix up some sawdust with some tilebond 50/50.
    Both work great in those little fixes.
