    Refinished back photo - happy with the placement of the fabric and no level issues in the fabric even after pulling off the first attempt.

    Epoxy cured and no real orange peel to speak of after a little work with sanding etc.

    Awesome!
    @FCD: I was wondering how you are connecting the front and the back patch on the sides?

    I am going to try and blend in then sides with the front and back with some paint. I will put in a small burst on the front and back. Due to the colour of the fabric black will be the colour of choice.

    Sounds like a good plan, i have gone a similar route, but i used a slightly raised binding to dam the epoxy on the top of the guitar, and done black sides with a yellow to red burst on the back. Can't wait to see how you go.

    Sounds great troubadour,

    Great thing is there are so many ways to do this. To be fair I probably wonít end up with a flawless finish as I am adding skills to this build that I simply am experimenting with and have never tried. For me itís not about it looking shop finished anyway but know this is something that would put others off. Otherwise I would have picked a simpler finish.

    Completely agree, there are always small bits that you know aren't 100 perfect, but the instrument become uniquely yours and something you couldn't buy anywhere else.
