I'm still trying. I got a cover made for the rear cavity last night and put two coats of oil on it. I made it out of ash and I think it looks pretty good on there. I also sanded the finish on the guitar level and applied another coat of oil on it. I'm think that it will take another coat or two then sand and buff. Then get it wired and cross my fingers that it doesn't completely suck. ;)
Oh, and I gotta level and polish the frets too. It's gonna be close, but there is a chance that this is gonna happen.
