Last nights work...

Did some Cloud Clone work on the CAD machine. Cut the body profiles out, cut the neck join, drilled the knob holes, and cut out the control pocket. On the tele models we did some top secret fine tuning for the joining process. I was only there for a few hours, but I think we made some good progress.
Don's still plugging away at repairs. A couple of refinishing jobs and some build-ups, too.

Back in the saddle.

Had a good vacation weekend away from the shop, but now I need to wedge my way back in there to see what's happening. You all know the drill by now. I'm going to call Don and see if I can make him work on the Tele. I'll let you know how that goes.

Them there repairs...

just keep on coming in. We are blessed to have 'em! However, I'm going to go over to the shop tomorrow night and try to convince Don to work on the Tele model.

Right now he's putting necks on Cloud Clones.

Blessings from across the pond...

Check out this testimonial.

Ooh, that smell

Not THAT smell, the smell of old guitars. Check out this '63 custom recently purchased for $15,000. All original. Don's doing a little work on it. The neck is whacky, so the thing won't stay in tune so I didn't play it. I pretended, though.

We also did some work on the Tele. We installed the light posts for all of the bodies last night. Next step is to fuse the bodies.

Damn Yankees won again.

Last night, tonight.

Yeah, Don's a sci-fi buff so I didn't get over to the shop last night. He was checking out the premier of V on ABC. I don't think any dramas are worth watching if they are on network tv. Plus I saw the original in '83. I remember wishing I was watching Night Rider instead.

I did, however, watch Dirk go off for 29 points in the fourth quarter against the Jazz.

So yesterday evenings plans are now tonights', and we will be working on TELE!

Going to the shop tonight to coax Don into working on the Tele shape. He's really busy with repairs, which is great, but I feel like I've got to nag him about staying on top of the Bell product line.
