    Buy a bespoke bone nut from PB not the cheapest option but it will be cut to suit your requirements

    Hi Paolo, despite the problems, the guitar looks great. I'd love to attempt one some day. Looking forward to see how you go with this.

    Was the back done in FW Golden Teak, straight, mixed, thinned?? I'm about to use it on the back of my new thinline build, wondering how it would look. I like what I see on yours.

    Hi djefster,
    The Front and Back were done with a roughly 50/50 mix of FW Golden Teak and Maple but with some of the FW extender in the first coat as I didn't know how strong it was going to look. I think I did 2 coats of the stain on back and front.

    The Sides and neck had more Maple in the mix, but I wasn't that exact with measurements. Just used a syringe.
    The Head Stock face and the Pick guard have some FW black added to the Golden Teak and Maple mix.

    Loving playing it with the band.

    Thanks Paolo. Great colours. That headstock stain is really effective too.

    Think I'll get my FW collection out and hit the practice board.
