    So time for a good sand to see what im working with. Lots of little imperfections show up with the first sand, scratches, bumps irregularities etc.
    Good sanding and a few more coats of primer should do it.

    Neck

    So while i was waiting for the body filler to dry i looked for my pots of stain for black which i had decided to stain the fretboard with and came upon RED MAHOGANY!
    I couldnt go past it, didnt even get to the black, i had to try the mahogany.
    4 coats of stain later, not just on the fretboard but all the neck i had fallen in love. BLACK AND RED, the perfect marriage, at least in my opinion. And it was a dark shade not a cherry red, will match with my theme, dark, mean and classy. At least i hope so....
    Then i had to put on 1 coat of poly just to check the depth of the stain....yumm. Perfeck!
    Should look great after 20 coats or so.

    Cheers guys. I recon the white pearl fret dots will match well. In the meantime a few complications, as usual.
    A resand of the headstock to eliminate small crossgrain scratches and a primer undercoat paint reaction that will need resanding on the body. Will post pics later.
