    This is when you want to get the flat surfaces as flat as possible. If you can stick sandpaper to a long flat piece of wood with double-sided tape, then you'll quickly get an idea where any dips are in the wood as you'll still see them as shiny areas. You really need to sand until they are all gone. You may need to re do the grain filler, as it almost always needs more than one application. And don't use too coarse a grit paper on the grain filler, as that tends to pull out the filler from the pores, so use the finer stuff once you''re getting close to the wood surface, even if it takes a bit longer.

    As to the finish: colour or clear coat. I like the dark mahogany wood finish and have never been a fan of Pelham blue (or any metallic finish for that matter) on a guitar, so my own choice would be to just clear coat it.
