60´s Strat-bygg MJTele/Musikraft


Recommended Posts

Dette blir mitt første DIY-prosjekt. Målet er en tidlig 60-talls Strat i Fiesta Red, med noen moderne specs på halsen.

Kroppen er i or, laget av Wildwood og malt og etterarbeidet av MJTele. Jeg har gått for en lett fading og relicing med lett krakelering.

Halsen er produsert hos Musikraft og malt/etterarbeidet av MJTele. Specs er kort fortalt en litt chunky C-profil, quartersawn Maple, slab Rosewood, 9,5 tommer radius, 21 medium jumbo bånd, clay dots, heavy rolled edges.

Halsen har også fått en lett/medium relicing med overspray på den slitte baksiden.

Legger ved to bilder i farten. Flere specs og bilder kommer etterhvert. Gleder meg til å begynne å skru, men nå kaller noen timer på jobben :)

Fenders guitar spraying methods werent consistent. Sometimes they used an undercoat sometimes they simply sprayed colour directly on to bare wood, or over a previous colour that hadnt worked out. But they always finished off with a top coat of clear lacquer (which was also nitrocellulose based). But as this clear lacquer aged, it yellowed significantly and distorted the shade of the original base colour.

Not only that, Fiesta Red itself turned out to be an unstable colour that was highly-reactive to the UV in sunlight and fluorescent light. Fenders colour charts from 1960 to present show there was never a colour called Coral Pink or Salmon Pink. What is often called pink is aged and faded Fiesta Red, where the red pigment has deteriorated towards pink or orange.
