Tony is another regular customer who has produced some superb guitars painted using my nitrocellulose lacquer.

I think he has excelled himself with this superb tribute to an early Fender Stratocaster using neck and body from Musikraft.

Take a look at Tony’s post on TDPRI¬†where he shows how be sprayed the sunburst and aged the body and hardware, making one of the best replica Strats I think I have ever seen.

  1. Absolutely beautiful. A lovely job and a really interesting thread on The Gretsch Pages. I’m always impressed when someone cares enough about what they do to explain and document it so thoroughly.

  2. Great looking guitar! What colours have been used here? I’m just awaiting delivery of a bass kit and like this colour scheme- a 2-colour burst may be easier for first-timer!

    • Thanks Ian. It uses Clear Amber and Tobacco Brown. You would need Sanding Sealer as a base coat and Clear Gloss to finish too.

      • I’m a 1st timer attempting these colours on a bass kit- the amber coat went well, however, the brown has clouded in a few spots, notably the horns. What’s caused this and how do I clear it away?

  3. Hi Tony, great looking strat.. I tried following the link on the Gretch page, but there seems to be no listing of it.. Are there any more pictures of this project. I have a body and fancy having a dabble at the 2 tone burst.

    Tim.

  4. Does anybody know what dye tony used for the yello/amber centre
