    Started with the final sanding and polishing of the body. Now I remember why I hate black guitars... :mad: ;)

    Back and sides lookin' good so far, but the top is still loaded with lots of scratches. I'll spend the Sunday to polish the top and try to get rid of the remaining scratches.
    I also removed the tape from the cavities, the edge around the neck was a bit tricky, but happily I could remove it without any damage on the lacquer.
