Ready for Finishing

Now this Hurricane is really starting to look like a STORM Custom Guitar. The binding is in-place, all the control knob holes and the jack hole are drilled. The body has been lightly smoothed and it’s ready to be finished.

Even though the plan all along has been to finish it with a translucent blue lacquer, I kind of think it might look fine just clear coated. I like the light tiger maple wood accented by the black binding. Hmm…

No changes! I’ll stick with the original plan and finish it in blue. All the hardware is chrome, which will go with the blue very well.

All we’d have to do, though, is order new hardware in black to keep the body natural. That’s the great thing about making truly custom guitars – almost anything is possible. The combinations of wood, finishes and components are so varied that the possibilities seem endless.
