Another day in the workshop. Lot's of sanding, spray-painting and some creative painting. Yes, we thought the name was a little bit long for a 3-string CBG, so now it's just; Anobium Punctatum!
We managed to spray some kind of a "sunburst" from black to pine. Did some letter stamping and gave it all few coats of semi-gloss lacquer, including the bridge.
Time to make the dots on the fret-board. The front ones are out of 8mm beech dowels and the top ones... just Saté sticks!
Time to put some frets on, glue the fret board to the neck and assembly our latest 3-string Recycled Box Guitar!
