Gold Leaf

Postby AZGuitars » Tue May 02, 2017 5:07 am

Got a new VVV build starting in the shop now. My customer has asked me to build another Gold Leaf version.
Will reveal the requester later. Below are the rough parts that i'll be transforming into another Gold Leaf beauty,
build #2. Unfortunately # one is in the hands (maybe) of Mr. Vincent. Below is a shot of the parts that will soon
become a beautiful instrument. . . .

this will be awesome to see come to life. I'm certainly looking forward to more build shots. I definitely don't mean to detract from this thread, but Tom check your PM's (here and facebook) sometime. I messaged you a while back. I'm interested in one!

Hi Vince,
Sorry if I missed your PM's. I always look at the top of the page when I open up the forum to check for PM's
but I don't recall missing any lately. I'll be more diligent in the future. I don't check out Facebook very often though.
Will be more often now.

Yeah! It takes a bit of insanity to do something like this . . . .

Little by little I'm in the process of shaving the edge chamfers onto all of the wing parts and shaving the little blend areas
where the wings meet the neck. I've also got the gold pearl blanks for cutting the "V" Inlays which is always a somewhat tedious
process. That stuff is pretty hard and a bit brittle. It also wears out my fine toothed razor saws and they aren't something that's
at all easy to resharpen, so I just end up buying more.

By the way Genebaby, is there a drool section on the forum for the Money shots?
I don't want my posts to get all goopy!

Brother Tom,
I have dropped so many loads looking at your work that my peenie only dry heaves now. Cleanup is inconsequential at this moot point.
Smooches,

Hey Tom, it is the responsibility of each member to protect their screen and keyboard when viewing your work. :)

I can't wait to see more pics.

Sounds like fun to do some video, "BUT" I don't have a video camera or a mobile phone.
Maybe it's time for WalMart. I'll check them out when I get a chance. I also have an account with Office Depot too.
It would also be neat to have the ability to describe what I'm doing while I'm doing it.
I will be checking into this so check back soon.
