Thanks guys! :hug:

I plan to finish sanding and start finishing next weekend. Hopefully should be ready to wire in 2 weeks.

Thanks

Update, I have a screw stuck in the body, so project is on hold until I can get it the hell out. Rage quitting for the day and I'm going to go sulk with my pedals.

Finally got around to working on this thing again. Got a new project so I should finish the old one, right?

Stained it nice and dirty, gonna start the tru-oil tonight.

Man, good luck with the Tru Oil. My apartment is about 3000% humidity right now. Ain't nothin' curing in here for the next few weeks.

My apartment is dry and boiling (top floor and I leave off the AC). First coat was dry enough to sand and put the next coat on in just over 3 hours.

Man, for some reason I always assumed the Warlock was a form that experimented with some Alembic inspiration and the Bitch 10 string thing...Just realized looking at the form that it wasn't designed for the Bitch 10 string set up.

I am still bummed I passed a few years ago on a pretty cheap Bernie Rico Seagull. Great sounding 70's craft + ridiculous electronics. I really want a vintage Bitch or Eagle...

Definitely would not work for the 10 string thing, would have been awesome though. Also, this is one I bought in a pawn shop for all my then savings (a.k.a. cheap in not broke teenager dollars) years ago. So who knows how closely the shape is to the actual warlocks. I know for sure the pickguard I bought from Moser for a warlock did not fit the dimensions properly of this thing. I'm assuming that's on my end, not his.

Those Seagulls are sweet.

Layer after layer going on. For some reason the body is taking it better than the headstock :idk:

Just put on the 11th coat (a diluted one). It's already shinier than I was expecting. I figure one more just to be thorough. Let it rest 24 hours. And then see if it is ready to be refitted with hardware. The only thing I think I might need is a string retainer to keep my strings in the nut

Done-ish

Did the most 12 string thing and broke the high G string while intonating the thing.

Image

I also can't find the back cover for the wiring. It'll show up.

Image

This thing is super fun.
