Red Triple Threat

Posted by The Fret Wire on

Comments: This is my second Fretwire guitar. I first used black ink on the outside and up the middle then sanded. Next I laid down ten coats of brilliant red using polishing sandpaper in between each, next came the twelve coats of Minwax clear sanding progressively between each coat until fourteen thousand. I updated the potentiometers to CTK and painted the Humbucker holders in white, in the process replacing the knobs and the rhythm / treble plate in white and the pickguard in clear. I now always shield the electronics with copper tape which reduces the hum. It plays great and I am proud of the way it looks.
