    Last Saturday I went down to Russell Iowa and bought a pretty decent bed for a project truck I'm hoping to sell. Then we came home and the kids and I moved stuff around to get the bed put on the beater truck. Next we pulled momma's suburban up and I started ripping out the engine and trans. Sunday I finished removing the engine and trans and I then took them and traded them for a 71 Cheyenne K10. Monday I worked on cleaning my messes up and spinning the burb around to get ready to drop a real engine in it. Too bad it snowed that afternoon and rained so far this week.

    This was a Traveler Guitar that got dropped and broke in half, a little glue and paint makes em look like what they ain't. Just need to cut-buff and re-assemble, and this one is done.

    Hadn't seen that brand before. Looks like Fonzie from Happy Days had a go at it.... Or maybe Pete Townsend? 8-)
    Is that a "splint" you added at the neck joint for glue up? Or a hanger for paint maybe? Those 2 large cut outs really takes away the lateral body support, It must flex quite a bit while being played.
    Maybe get some "tonal changes" when you flex your left wrist? As in "bend" the note pushing / pulling on the neck.. ??..??

    The Traveler guitars have been around for a while, they are scaled down in size to make it easy to carry. The tuners mount in the body, kinda awkward.
    That’s my paint paddle, it has a piece of conduit attached and goes into a stand in the booth, it allows me to rotate as I spray, then hangs when done. If you look close you recognize my secret aluminum 1/8” x 2” bar source, yep it’s a ruler, they’re cheaper than the same thing in bare aluminum, lol.

    It arrived today.

    It's a real good picture of me driving. Usually I'm not so very photogenic

    And that is what I was asking about. Making out the ruler was easy. I was assuming the other end had a curl in it to loop over a hanger so your part could hang free to dry. Did you use something like a Kreg Joint to pull the bottom of the bout together. Or is is just a glue joint with no mechanical fastener(s)?

    No, I'm too cheap for that. I just flatten the end of a 3/4 EMT conduit and rivet onto the aluminum then wood screw it into the neck screw holes. There's a 1/2" spacer block under the aluminum that sets it up out of the pocket so the paint can roll in a little, simple but works great..

    You probably meant the body, LOL, I'm idiot. The body is wood glued and clamped, wood glue is plenty strong enough if the break fits back together well. On bad breaks I usually blind pin them.

    Not cheap... but frugal! and yes, I meant the lower body. Thanks for the info.
