    Es-12q

    My Spring project just arrived!

    Electric semi-hollowbody 12 string. My second kit from PitBull. The quality is really good - better than I expected. Although it was advertised with a basswood body, it's actually mahogany, the neck as well.

    Wiped it down with white spirits to check for glue spills, and found none. Really nice book matched quilting on the veneer.

    Gold hardware. As I'm staining it azure, I may want to switch to sliver.

    Now I just have to wait for the finish to arrive. I'm using Wudtone Azure Lagoon.

    Always the most nerve-wracking moment.

    The first deep colour coat has gone on. I'm really pleased with how the quilted veneer is popping.

    Now only 12 more coats of finish to go!

    Converted a 6 string piezo bridge to a 12 string. A bit ugly, but let's hope it works!
