Countdown post #7...

Don spent most of his time sanding and polishing last week while I was out. The new batch of guitars look like glass! Shown here are four JazzBlasters and two SST's.

Now they feel and look like guitars instead of just parts. Don began shaping the neck joins and routing for the pickups last night. The new neck join is VERY comfy and looks fluid, too (I'll photograph this for you on Saturday and include it in the next blog). I sanded the remaining guitar bodies that don't have necks yet. Although I spent 3 hours sanding, I probably only got about half the work done. We go through tons of sandpaper. 6 different grits for each guitar, I believe.
