Ceruse finish on an Ash guitar body blank

hey guys welcome back to the shop so
today I’m going to show you how I turned
this ash body into something like this
beauty here so let’s roll the intro and
we can begin
okay guys so lately I’ve been looking
for some different types of finishes for
this ash body as you might know ash is
highly open pores and I wanted something
that it will stand out from normal
finish rather than just put Troy and
leave it like it is so I’ve been looking
online and I came across this particular
technique which is called serous finish
and yeah so I looked it up I saw some
pictures well it’s very common for ash
body to be in this kind of finish
basically what you have is that the body
would be stained in a particular color
and then the grain will be accent
accented well basically the grain will
be in another color and there are a lot
of methods in which you can do this kind
of finish but I experimented with a
couple of stuff and well I kind of find
a way and either way easy and cheap to
get this result so basically what you
need to get this result is a nice body
sandpaper 220 or the 40 something will
follow and the paint or stain that
you’re going to do overall the body and
paint or stain in which you’re going to
fill up the pores of this body in my
case I’m using a white water-based putty
to fill up the greens and another thing
you need a wire brush explain you later
so the first step is to prepare the body
first of all you send it up to up to 220
or 240 gripped going along the grain so
you minimize scratches what is already
well it’s not almost ready I’m not going
to send spent five minutes sending this
body okay whoa so when you have the your
body ready with sanding I suggest you
raise a bit degree in a couple of times
you never know how the paint is going to
react with your body with your body
blank so after you send down up to two
hundred fourteen you sprinkle a bit of
water let it dry resent again and do
another another pass sprinkle more water
let it dry and then send it again so we
come to eliminate that fuzziness of the
grain and just in case that the paint’s
will react with the wood no after that
what I do forget this wire brush and I
just go along the grain in this way
you’re opening up more even more deeper
it was important you go along the grain
rather than across because if you go to
ask you’re going to scratch the body
okay you’re scratching about the body
like this but another grain is different
no yes they can fix this body is not
properly sanded
I still have blue paint from my front
door because recently I was different
fishing my front foot but this is just
for demonstration purposes
no after the way brush it’s a good idea
to go slightly over the body with three
to four degrees just to eliminate that
fasteners from the way brush no the next
step it will be to paint or stain the
body now you can use paint in my case in
this case I used I’m going to use a
spray can a rattle can a spray can
black it’s I think it’s acrylic paint
but you can use a good stain I don’t
suggest water-based because I don’t
think it’s quite covering is a good idea
so yeah let me do let me paint this body
and we can continue okay now do Polly
flooding I put a couple of coats of
black paint as you might notice this is
not technically the same body I have two
of those but this was a good way to
demonstrate the process now that the
paint is dry it’s time to get a little
bit dirty as I said I’m going to use
this is a water based wood putty it’s
kind of a heavy paste I tried to deal
you ate it with water but the effect
didn’t really worked good so I just try
them it straight up the out of the can
and it worked really nice now a piece of
rank and now it’s time to go crazy I
like to do for example Harvard
and then do the other half the end so
you need to rub it really well in the
open force yes I know it looks like a
big mess that’s just the way it’s
supposed to look and then get the follow
the rule and see the magic happening in
front of you now look at that
some spots required a second application
to be better
and it’s good to put a heavy coat –
rather than a smooth coat I’m not
pressing hard with this table and just
slightly gently wiping the body and now
we can continue with the other half now
guys I’m not an expert in finishing but
this is something that I was
experimenting with if not the right way
or the proper way to do it there are
different methods but this is what works
for me with what I have and with what I
know about finishing
and there it is guys look beautiful is
that
too shiny so as you think
there isn’t much into it the most
important is you when you’re going when
you’re wiping out with the steel wool is
to go really light because you might end
up removing the black paint as I did
here a bit but that’s not a problem
sustain it a bit more and that will
cover my little mistake so for today
that’s it I hope you guys enjoyed this

If you are looking for a good solid body electric guitar but do not want to pay top dollar, consider a simple guitar body blank, that is essentially a simple body veneer attached to the neck of your guitar, by attaching a plastic screw or dowel, or sometimes even a bolt. It is an inexpensive way to obtain a nice inexpensive body for your electric guitar.

Some of the more popular options are those made of fiberglass, steel, or acrylic. The choice is yours. A popular choice in body blank is a fiberglass model, because it is very lightweight but does not take up much room on your guitar. Most of these body blanks have a metal core which fits into the guitar, making it secure at all times and giving you a strong, stable guitar body.

Some people prefer the sound of a metal frame. For this reason they choose the metal frames that have an open area in front of the neck. The advantage of this type is that the guitar sounds like it is played in a metal band, but it will be a bit more expensive because of the cost of building the metal frame, and then putting it on to the guitar.

Many guitar manufacturers offer these types of body blanks as a kit. They will include the blank, the hardware, and a plastic screw or dowel that is attached to the neck. With this kit you can create any sound that you want. They will allow you to use the wood grain, or even the color of the wood that is on your guitar, you are free to create the tone that best suits your needs.

Another option is to buy a blank, and build your own guitar. You can make a very unique guitar body that has the same “feel” as the ones that the professional guitar makers create and is much cheaper than buying a kit.

There are also companies who will build a complete guitar set, including the guitar body blank and hardware. These sets are usually sold separately from the actual guitar and can be assembled in one day with the same convenience of the kits, however they will not come with the wood grain pattern or color.
