OH SHIT MAN SORRY I FORGOT TO REPLY TO YOUR PM!!! :fp: :-[ :ph34r:

Ha the market still looks the same. I remember it from 1999 there were refin Jags and Jazzers for 5000 pesos, blackface Fender heads and Mustangs for 2000-3000 ... good times. :'(

Again sorry...
i love delay SO much ...that i procrastinate all the time.

Btw that's an ancient Ibanez Bizarre behind the Egmond.

And you will ALWAYS find some ShinEi pedals there!!! :P

Yeah - I was considering the two pedals under the Jolana (one of them was WOW-WOW!) but they both looked like they were missing parts that would be tough to track down.

The Ibanez had a weird trem setup - looked sorta Yamaha SG sorta Teisco Spectrum.

wow, seeing jolana Star IX in this condition IN MEXICO? :)) huh - those were exported only to "socialist countries" back then (they are quite common in former USSR countries for example), some went probably to Cuba. but yeah, it would make a killer mustang project :D

anyway, I'm amazed how you managed to salvage a hacked up body like that. What a story !

Will, I was just wondering if you had already finished this project - any update would be appreciated :)

After waiting over a month for a clearcoat to harden, I gave up and scraped a bunch of lacquer off. It may be a month or two before I'm ready to put it back together.

After I left it outside trying to get it to dry, some lines showed up - but a little bit of scraping leveled things out.

Here's the thing. I knew this was going to come out perfectly, because I've been following this forum long enough to know that the woodworkers here have seemingly superhuman powers.

And yet I'm still blown away. Magnificent work.

Also, although "Phantom Limb" is a near-perfect name for this thing, considering that it grew the limbs back, this guitar clearly must be forever known as The Salamander. (Btw, I meant to suggest this a few pages back but forgot; I was going to suggest an "amphibious" blue-green finish, and sure enough you read my mind!)

Just saw this one. Great work. However, anyone who made a massacre like that, should be sentenced.
