high visibility orange guitar (Part 6)
I've decided that this guitar I'm building will be difficult to lose.
The orangeness is coming along a treat. I know most people wouldn't do this kind of paint job, but I'm thinking that I'd rather have something that obviously stands out instead of another black or red guitar (I've got both those colours anyway).
There's also a well-known term in paint spraying called 'orange peel' when the paint goes on a little spottily. I'm thinking that "it's not a bug, it's a feature" to cover up my own spray painting limitations.
So if the finish is slightly textured, then it will be a proper orange peel finish for an orange guitar.
I should have listened, baby, to my second mind
Everytime I go away and leave you, darling, you send me the blues way down the line.
Oops. No. That's from the lemon song.
