Eldy: frets and finish
« on: July 24, 2010, 10:42:07 AM »
Today I restrung Eldy and, as always, I took the occasion to clean it all up.

I took some pics of frets and finish: after 15 years (and I'm sure that the previous owner abused her... ) they look in excellent shape!
Go Parker!

Here they are: http://img514.imageshack.us/slideshow/webplayer.php?id=eldyfretboardandfinish0.jpg

You see 3 strings on because I usually remove half of the strings and clean that side of the fretboard, and then I repeat the process with the other half. I know there's a mark in the carbon fibre on the first fret, but it's just a scratch, it's not a hole or dip liek it may look like.

PS: the finish is actually darker, but after cleaning, it's quite reflective so it looks like a light blue in the pics.

Cool... thanks for sharing!

"Majik blue", right?   Love that color....

Not too many products on the market anymore that are actually built to last.



Life's too short to play boring guitars...

I like the green and maroon curtains.

I've added 3 more pics, taken without using the flash and only natural sunlight, to show the beauty and the real colour of the finish.

Just recheck the album link out: http://img514.imageshack.us/slideshow/webplayer.php?id=eldyfretboardandfinish0.jpg
