eb 0 Progress and CAD assembly

After the sanding was completed, we used some high-quality filler resin to fill in the gaps around the hack job logo.

Sand it down to reveal the pearl and level off the surface.

Then do the same for the points and the crown on the top, as the sharpness was sanded away in the previous refurbishing effort.

Sand again carefully around the filled areas.

We decided to go ahead and replace the frets, as they have been played hard since '69.

I'm starting to get excited about how it's shaping up. It's going to be brand new with original components. Awesome!

As for the CAD machine, we got it up and running yesterday. It took a little jerry-rigging from Don to get the thing to act right, but we think we've got it. Production resumes!

On a side note Don had to slaughter two snakes while they were making serpent love. This has got to be a good sign, right? Also the AC is out at the shop. Yeah. Poor Don.
