A Union Jack guitar.... mmm, would have been an Epiphone Supernova in 2002 I recall. It was my first realisation that spending £750 didn’t necessarily get you a nicer guitar than what I had at the time (a second hand Sheraton).
Following the last upload I went out on a limb again with this and took some advice from a few heavyweights in the guitar world... “you should totally do some videos, Scott!”.... yeah, but I don’t think this is what they had in mind! You won’t find me in front of the camera and yes, it’s shot on an iPhone but hey.. it’s about the guitar, not me. Here’s the second video and hopefully many more to come.
Sorry, I’ve been quiet. Apart from being ridiculously busy we decided to divide our workshop into 2 rooms which meant I had to build a stud wall while a friend hung the door. Today we will be sheeting said wall and finally we’ll have a dedicated dusty prep area and a clean music room.
In the meantime, this T Type body just left for Greece. I did a vintage faded burst on this one, I’ll be doing more like it soon. I love ash and I love how the paint highlights the grain.
Nothing overly interesting with this post but I had this picture from last week and figured it was worth sharing. On the left is a body coated in white primer. The body on the right has had a healthy lashing of Olympic white and clear coat. It’s always cool to compare colours to a white body to get the full story. Oly white, mint guard and rosewood neck is a timeless classic imo.
