Body Paint and Clear

I painted the body today. I wanted to make it blue using a dye, but it didn’t work out good with the mahogany body. So back to my fallback plan: cherry red lacqUer left over from the Less Paul.

I also applied some tung oil finish, which I really really like. It’s easier to apply than wipe on polyurethane, and it looks better.

Headstock Decal

It’s time to put the logo on the Teenycaster headstock. I put a couple coats of tung oil on the neck and let it sit overnight.

I downloaded a font named Strato that mimics the Fender script logo and fired up Photoshop. I used the Calibri font for the TEENYCASTER part. This is what I came up with.

Print that out a billion times on waterslide paper and I’m good to go.

The end result looks great!

Seal Coat

Today I sanded off the grain filler and applied a few cards of vinyl sealer. This is what the parts look like now.
