    Can you save money on finishing by doing your own prep/masking? Or did you already?

    I sanded the body to 220. He did everything else. I don’t think me doing the masking would save anything, and it’s something I don’t want to have to do anyway.

    And that price is actually reasonable for guitar finishing. The other guy I’m going to use has quoted me $400/body.

    Roger, simply gorgeous. Well done. BUT - putting up against a craggly old rock - Risk taker, you are.

    Thanks, Andre!

    Thank you, Robert! The pau ferro pickup rings were a great touch!

    Thank you, George!

    I had pieces of leather behind the guitar where the body touched the rocks ;)

    I've only just seen this thread (how?!!) and I've read through it from start to finish. That is a really beautiful guitar; it looks original without being deliberately in-your-face, it's subtle yet attractive.... Absolutely bloody gorgeous.

    What does it sound like?
