                  • The overlay material is a vulcanized product of some sort.

                    It's the same type material as was on the guitar originally.

                    I found out about it from Benedetto, who also uses it on some of his work.

                    I did a glue test over the weekend on some scraps of material, between super glue, epoxy & titebond to see which worked the best.

                    Super glue didn't seem to get a very good bite, but epoxy & titebond both worked well.





                    So I chose the titebond since it cleans up with a wet rag.

                    Used Q-tips to clean out the drippage coming down the tuner holes.



                    Clamping pressures were very moderate, as I have already top coated the screen printed logo with clear nitro for protection & wanted to avoid any damage to that area.





                    Quick shot of the back of the body.







                    Ready to trim flush with the headstock sides & get the pearl in place.

                            Fitting P90s to cavaties previously filled by mini-hums....seems I remember GD saying?

                            • The attention to detail and work you've done with this guitar amazes me, Meandi. I can't wait to see the final product, how much work actually remains before finishing starts?

                                didn't you say you were going to have to clearcoat the pu covers & pg so it would match the binding?
