I'm in the process of building a replica of the Workmate Esquire. I started with a Guitar Mill swamp ash body. I grain filled with Aqua Coat and I'm using Sherwin Williams LoVOC nitrocellulose Lacquer with my HVLP setup. I'm using custom wound pickups.

I've finished with the grain filler and sprayed two coats of lacquer sealer










The weather actually cooperated today and I sprayed two coats of amber tinted lacquer for the burst today. I'll proceed tomorrow with red and hopefully black



Thanks guys! I'm going to relic it. I can always build a NOS Workmate.

I got my burst red and the black sprayed today. It's my first burst and I didn't use a template. I used a 4oz touch up gun for the red and my dual action air brush for the black. Then the weather turned too humid to lay on any clear.










Four coats of clear later it's done. Just got to wait for it to gas off then I'll wet sand and polish.

Thanks a lot. I used a lot of the advice I read on the forum and went slow and steady. I'm already thinking about a sunburst P bass and two tone sunburst strat.

I wet sanded and polished the body this weekend and did my relic work. The wear pattern isn't exactly the same but it's close enough imo.
