    While I’m waiting on more cans of nitro clear and pickguard material to arrive, here’s an exclusive sneak peek of the test piece for my next build:

    That bass is coming along nicely.

    Ok, I need to know what kind of filler you’re using. I’ve been putting off doing a dog hair finish on an otherwise built two years ago guitar. Are you happy with it ? Is that just a thin coat of black underneath? Cheers

    Yep, it’s just a very thin coat of black, followed by a water-based clear grain filler, with some gold embossing powder mixed in. Shellac over the top.

    I’m not 100% satisfied with it, I wanted to see more of the grain filler, so I’m gonna keep experimenting with different techniques

    Try drywall putty. It's white and water based.
