    I don't think you will go wrong with the rust oleum brand. I use it on just about everything .

    Just Applied 1 Coat to the Front. As you can see the other piece is lighter. I still like it though. What do you expect for $28 LOL.

    This looks great. The grain on the fingerboard looks lovely too.

    I don't need another guitar, but this has got me thinking...

    Smokes, I love this thread. Keep it coming. Can't wait to see the finished product.

    My only issue is that I'm drill-aphobic.

    Take pics of when you drill and how you align the neck. :)

    Sorry off topic for a moment... I built this last year. I named her Leslie after my girlfriend. The body came from Canada. Tonebomb. He has some nice body's. They run about $120 or so. I used a Turquoise Angellus Analine Dye with 3 Coats and 6 coats of Tru Oil. I won the neck on ebay for $200, its a Musikraft Neck. Sick neck.

    Smokes, that looks amazing !!! Did the screw-holes for the neck line up?

    Man, that looks amazing !!! You used a blue stain? The grain looks fantastic.

    No, its a turqoise leather analine dye. Its made by Angellus.

    1. The neck didn't have any holes drilled so it was an easy mount.

    2. And yes the grain is quite amazing. Great company. Tonebomb in Canada.

    Did the final clear coat just now. I'll start the hardware when it dries/cures really good. It could take two days or more I suppose. Its cold here in NY.

    ****I guess that's why Fender and other guitar manufacturers have wharehouses in nice climate zones, for their body's to dry decently.

    Oh that looks nice. If I ever get an electric guitar again I want it in natural wood.
