Thread: Caparison #1 HeadBender Mod

    Caparison #1 HeadBender Mod

    So, it has been started. Today I have received the victim of the mod, a Yellow Sand Horus.

    I will try to give regular updates and post progress pictures as well.
    As for today

    This is how it started:




    Removal of the pivot studs:

    Strap Button: no comment

    This is how the upper horn screw looks like:


    And the typical Caparison sickness (thank god in this case only in the clear coat and not in the wood:


    @Gabriel, you Guys really need to do something with this.

    Here it is stripped:

    Started to thin the neck satin clear coat with some 00 Steel Wool.
    (The Maple has some nice figure!)



    First checks how the Rosewood reacts with the dye, I guess in the end once it gets to that it will result well. The grain is still visible so its not complete black, but looks deeper and darker then originally. This is after maybe 1 layer (1st and 2nd fret)



    Thats all for today. I only had 2 hours to deal with it. Next step is to order the Luminlay (I am going for Blue ones on this) remove the satin clear coat completely, then oil the neck. Decide if i will refret it or not, if not to glue the frets, treat the fretboard, then apply the dye. A Truss rod cover out of Rosewood and I guess thats it for the Neck. Will also check if I need to do a fret levelling if I go for the original frets, but I might end up refretting with a narrower fretwire. Any input if I should go for it?

    Nice. What material is this? And bindings to go around, or leave it natural?
