thank you verhoevenc, i thought about putting some color to it, i really ike the root beer finish that Gbson used...but in the end decided to leave it natural. btw the way i finished it was sanded through 320, then 4 coats of Deft laquer sanding sealer, then 3 coats of Sherwin Williams hand rubbed catalyzed laquer. Then i rubbed it down good with 0000steel wool and johnsons floor paste wax . It has a nice feel to it, not to heavy, and you can feel the wood.
