I enjoyed watching that clip. Thanks Allan. The orange coloured cutter on your CNC machine..is that a bull nose cutter of some sort?

Enjoyed the clip Allan, the cnc work was quite interesting to watch. and a great end result.
I think I have read in past posts that you use PPG 2 pack, Is this still the case? I use the D800 range here myself on a few projects.

Cheers Mark

Hi Mark.

On my guitars there are many varied products, it depends on the application. Sometimes PPG or Autothane, sometimes UPOL, sometimes Mirotone, it depends on the application.

Your work really is amazing Alan, I haven't seen anything of yours I don't like, I don't think you could make anything better.

Thanks Col. I appreciate the kind words.

As anyone here would know, when you build a guitar, or build anything for that matter, as the builder you know every tiny little thing that didn’t go quite right and it grinds on you. Luckily the more you build the amount of those little things gets smaller and smaller!
