Stripy Double Cut With An F-Hole

I think the burst turned out fantastic.  The tuning machine choice really compliments the headsock too.

It did, yes. That's more or less the look that my dyed Zebrano is looking like it will turn out as also. Much classier than the gaudy original!

Thanks! And I'm a big fan of Gotoh 501 Deltas.  21:1 ratio and smooth turning and sleek looking.

It was buried just beneath the surface eh? I'd like to see yours when it's ready.

so- how many layers of tru oil in the end? not counting sand offs. I am thinking about this for the mahogany jazz master type I am building but I am really thinking I would rather suffer thru sanding solarex and be done with it in no time flat. I think I am done with laquer for a while- my lungs cant take it.

I'm not sure I can figure it not counting sand offs. There were about 15 wipe on coats with one leveling. And 22 spray on coats...which are thicker than wipe on coats. And two levelings after that.

And given my age and memory, I'd say the total is plus or minus 3.:blink:

You've done it again, Scott. 🤤 🥇 (smileys aren't what they used to be)

It almost looks too good to be played.

'Don't touch it! You'll wake the gloss pixies...'

If you scroll all the way down to the bottom of the drop down list, you can find all the old emoticons. I too, like them much better.:)

The level of gloss is inspiring.  

So, out of the builds you have done, where would you rank this?  Is it one of your favorites?

For sure.

But then all my builds become my new favorite.:)

I I had to rank them all, Justin's Guitar would be my favorite. The quilt and the way the top came out is just too cool. Plus it was for my son, and that gives it an advantage over all the others. I think this one gives it a run for its money in the looks department though.

The back seem to glow of itself. Super.

Gotta love sapele. I will take a little credit for the subtle burst that draws your eye to that glow though.:)

Thanks Andy, I appreciate it.
