    One question.....can anybody place the headstock design?
    I didn't know it came that way, thought you did that...

    It reminds me of kind of a cockeyed Ovation headstock.

    Sanded and two coats of shellac.

    I have sanded the body and the neck through 80, 120,180 grits....then cedar/blackwood timbermate all over. Then both have been sanded to 240 grit.

    They have both now had two coats of shellac to try and even out the absorption of the water based dyes.

    The body shade does not really matter at this time as it will be died. But, the neck is looking okay with just the shellac. I have just checked all my Tru-Oil and it has all either gone lumpy or dried up in the bottom of bottles. I have ordered some of the unlabelled Tru-Oil from PBG.

    I really don't know whether I want to apply a stain to the neck and headstock. Tru-Oil and then the spray satin poly will add a yellow/brown shade to the finish. I am worried that the finish may go too deep as it did once before for me.....colortone amber is quite strong.

    What do you ladies and gentlemen think????
