    I like the way your AL came out Billy and Rook it is still a flat top but the flame gives it the look of a arch top

    Well I got all the clear on so it is in my hang room thought I would shoot a couple of pics. It will hang for a week I will wet sand and let it hang for a while more until it gases out. The back has some light overspray on it as I had to shoot the front and sides again, but the back didnt need it. It will all sand off when I wet sand it. The cloudy look is reflections from the window.

    Whoa, wait, did you shave that black beast on the front page? I should have saved her. Man, first guitar ever that hasn't been ugly with that skinny headstock.

    RE: Melody Maker Project take 3

    Harpmaster, that is a nice piece of mahogany!

    I have a finish recipie that would look georgous on this: mix cherry tint into dark brown grain filler. Then mix a hint of amber tint with cherry to create an alchol based stain. After staining, shoot a couple of thin coats of clear {I prefer lacquer}. Then a coat of clear with a little yellow and amber tint mixed in. Then a couple more coats of clear. After you rub it down, it will look like an aged 50' ES 335 'golden-red'. [hr]
    Ooops: had not finished the thread on my last post. Sunburst looks good!
