    Man, that sounded great Malky. You should continue on with it. Beautiful finish on it also. Mine doesn't look near that good. Excellent playing style.
    I want to hear more.

    Thanks Richard, I like the finish on it but I would love to see Robbie's finish with blue candy on an instrument like this, a lot of lap steels and pedal steels tend to have a mother of pearl finish and it seems to suit them, I was actually aiming for a mother of pearl look on mine but it was done with metallic paints and transparent blue water based varnish.

    Weeeell, I probably managed to get myself on some government list with all the chemicals I've ordered the past two months.
    I was after doing the crystal FX thing with waterbased paint and trying to figure out what class of chemicals their propietary ingredient belonged to/ different types of crystal forming substances and such that would make the process compatible with waterbourne.
    This was a happy spinoff involving some stuff I got from DOW.
    I've managed to work out the whole waterbourne thing finally too but im still tuning it.
    I haven't really divulged the whole thing because im actually seriously considering developing this into a commercial product if the idea has legs?

    For sure I'm gonna get some different combos done and put it on whatever i find thats cheap.
    And i'll get some shipped out to some of you guys to try out when I'm a bit more sure of its behaviors and quirks.

    Definitely! I’ll second that Malky.
    Nice job Robby, it looks really cool and there’s a lot of scope for the finish too. Good luck turning this into a product. I’m sure there will be some willing volunteers here to help give it a try when you have the formula locked down.

    You can always find realky cheap guitars in junk shops and garage sales, I really would love to see this effect on an electric guitar, I reckon it woukd look amazing with a gothic or tribal design here and there, woukd turn a cheap guitar into an axe worthy of a rock legend.

    And who knows? It might encourage you take it up:)

    Can't wait to how this evolves:thumbsup:

    LOL I've tried several times over the years. I can learn songs, kind of, but I never really progress with it. Not saying I can't do it. Just that its something I have absolutely zero god given talent for.

    Edit: I meant to say great “Tone”.

    I was literally about to suggest a Squire Affinity series. Perfect choice.
