You gonna use Southbound Mike? They do a superb finish. The hairline cracks won't be seen as the darkest part of the burst will hide them. Neat. Very Happy

This is Hubert Brown "Brownie" in 1978 at the Detour Inn in North Highlands Ca. He was in the band with Okie Paul and Ola Louise. This is just too cool.

I didn't know you had Sacramento roots Mike. That's great. It's a wonderful city. And I'm glad you knew Chris...

Yes Tom, I was born and raised in Sacramento. I had the pleasure of picking with guys like Brownie, Chris Ivy, and so many many more. Things really changed out there and we moved to Nashville 13 years ago. It was time...

Mike,

It is fantasic to watch the restoration.

I have a question that I hope is not too personal, and perhaps will shed some light on the changes in pedal steel and likely country music in general. You mentioned that things changed 'out there' (Sacramento) and you moved to Nashville. What things impacted you and your work, that you felt it was time to make a change?

Cheers, Bryan

Hi Mike,

I hadn't heard from you in awhile with the latest on this restoration. What's the status? Any new updates? Is the body finished?

I've really enjoyed watching these Emmons PP transformations. It will kind of be a let down after this guitar is finished since it appears to be the last one in your restoration series.

You should get into the restoration business! Your work is great!

Thanks,

Don

Hey Don,

Things are on hold now till the body comes back from Southbound and I get the polishing back. I am expecting a few more weeks. After that I will begin the whole assembly process. This is going to be a great guitar...Smile

That is just stunning Mike, and certainly one of a kind. Another successful project by Southbound. Can't wait to see her fully assembled.

Mike, I am curious as to how many coats of lacquer are sprayed on the cabinet? That is a beautiful finish for sure!

So.... The finish is not lacquer but Acrylic Urethane. Lacquer as you might guess is very fragile and dries very hard. It is also a little hard to maintain in my experience. On the other hand, urethane is tough and polishes out great and holds it's shine. With modern materials, we now have great choices when it comes to finish products. The guys at Southbound in Nashville are among the best in the business IMHO and when they tell me to go a certain way I listen. Now if I were restore a 61 Strat I would use Nitro Lacquer but steel guitars is urethane all the way.

Just my 2 cents

Mike

I agree with Mike and Steve (from southbound) Poly is the only way to go these days. Vastly superior durability, and amazing gloss. No Cracks! Sounds great, tastes great, less filling.
I use it exclusively on my refinish jobs.

Mike, as tempting as that is, if I did that I’d have to come live with you... there’s only so much I can get past my wife... Laughing Laughing Laughing
