    The back of the guitar looks very nice indeed.

    The top's looking good too apart from those probable/possible glue areas down the join. If it's not glue on the top, then it should take the stain a bit better. It's only the bit between the pickups that really stands out. If it were me, I'd get a small brush and try and stain just that section a bit more. If that doesn't take, an oil-based stain might work better on the glue areas.

    So I got the first coat of hard Shellac down today... did it French polish style purely to see how it would turn out. Seems some parts of the top were thirstier that the rest as the shellac truly disappeared in some places particularly on either side of the neck picup hole. There are a few imperfections from the wire brush and a few more grain holes than I realized, but overall I'm pretty happy with the result so far....

    I think I'll leave it for a day or two to harden/cure/dry before I set in the neck...

    I intend to. Hopefully somewhere between 5 and 10 coats depending on how the finish comes up, and how well the imperfections disappear...

    Had a look today to see how well the Shellac had set and it seems to have gone reasonably hard, so considering that tomorrow will be a busy day for me at the Wowan car rally I decided to set the neck this afternoon once temps get below 25C.

    The actual process was pretty simple. Goo up, press in, clamp up, wipe away the excess with a damp cloth....Then the worry set in....Is it all the way home? Do I have enough pressure on the joint in the right places? Will it move overnight to some weird angle or drift while I'm away all day tomorrow? Is the neck angle correct? Will the joint look okay once the Titebond dries? So many other stupid questions that can't practically be changed now.

    I think watching Pro & semi pro rally cars doing their 'wild thing' in the hills 100km South West of Rockhampton will be a good mind clearer...

    Hanging to 'dry after first coat of Tru-oil. A few 'coats' of Shellac added in too for good measure...

    Three coats of Tru-oil and I've lost count on how many Shellac on the LP-1SSP...
