My first Roasted Ash body and Bocote Neck

Received the beautiful Roasted Ash body , ex lightweight.








Really like the wood grain look, inspired by this

Thinking it would be cool to make it like aged raw wood with some metal rusted look. with this idea, just find a Bocote neck with wood grain to match on 20% off Screamin' Deals, so I order it.

One PS design  idea, need test to find out is the rusted effect paint can achieve this

rusted effect test, as Roasted Ash can turn quite a dark brown, I mainly use a dark brown wood for teasing, but also with some light colors wood.



Test with black iron / brown red copper/ golden copper



Add chemical rusted catalyst.



After chemical rusted catalyst.

I just pass by a guitar shop , find a fender master build with weathered aluminum pickguards look quite nice.

I thinking made a engraved aluminum pickguards with  weathered finish.

I planing to filling dark sunken wood grain with silvery color , and other part iron rusted effect.

  

here is how it look with the neck

连琴颈也选择了配合木纹的 Bocote Neck  









然后做了些木头金属锈的测试。

最开始想用铜锈 :

后来觉得铁锈更适合本身深咖啡色的琴体,但深咖啡色上木纹不清楚,就搞个反转色吧,把木纹搞成浅色的银色,其他部分铁锈色。

配合银色就又搞了个雕刻金色的铝合金护板。

配合木纹的主题,用森林做背景,用我在北海道近俄国海拍的白尾海雕的鸟类摄影,改成的线稿做主题。

雕的过程

测试把木纹搞成浅色的银色,其他部分铁锈色。




Sand off the testing area. 打磨高把位圆弧位。












加点 502 强化螺丝孔。
Add some super glues to reinforce the holes.




















Need more hand selection sanding

World weather getting crazy, 2 windstorm in USA , and we have typhoon nearly every weeks here , put my daytime project in delete and it near the deadline now , so not time to made much progress in the factory , only done some hand selecting area sanding . And some bad luck, as too many typhoon , air get hight humidity , when there are sun I put the the body outdoor under the sun , but a suddenly rain made it even more wet , so I need to buy a drying cabinet to dry it now .
