i’m sure you’ve heard of the persian rugs with a poorly tied knot included to avoid perfection. i like to think i have that imperfection built in.
as much as i hate admitting when i’m doing something for the first time, it’s true that this is my first guitar build. once i had the primer in place, it became clear that i had some waviness in my guitar body. i could start over by sanding down the body again and removing those waves or i could start painting the color.
the finish line is way to close for me. this guitar was always going to have some imperfections. the only difference now is that i know what one of them will be.
