    Thanks! Setting the neck is probably one of the two steps I'm most worried about. That and sawing the fret slots. I've got the correctly sized fret saw from stewmac, but their fret sawing jig was a little beyond my budget for build #1. I'm going to have to figure out how to make my own jig. 

    Something like this works a treat and won't break the bank

    I meant to mention...that I love the F-hole.

    That sounds so dirty...<_<

    Which in a guitar is actually a good thing.

    It's good to hear from @Muzz. He once had the distinction of authoring the longest running thread, POINTY STICK, I do think @Norris has probably usurped that honor by now though.

    Always great to chat with you Scott and nice to see someone mosey along the build pathway enjoying the journey

    I used Rustoleum rattle can lacquer. I will probably not use this again as it still hasn't cured very well, but it did take to wet sanding fairly nicely:

    I finished a guitar in Rustoleum and it cured well after a month except I had to recoat the bits that sat on the foam in the guitar stand with two pack because the foam reacted with the Rustoleum and went dull. Your guitar looks awesome though, great job on it

    I would try filling with veneer and re-cutting first. If that all comes bask out when you re-slot it, then go with CA or epoxy might even be better and clamp it down white the glue cures.

    I've got three guitars with 23 frets...

    Between us we have five, I love guitars with 23 frets, I don't know why, they just look cool :)
