    the finishing actually started as a big mistake. I was Planning on blue with black in the grain. I mixed black paint with the grain filler and applied it to the body before i used the blue stain. The stain should go on before the grain filler. when i applied the blue stain it wouldn't stick to the wood because of the grain filler. i was going to sand the wood down and start again but i actually likes how it looked. i did some surface sanding and brushed on a couple of coats of blue on the pine. sanded around the edges of the Ash. sprayed the clear.

    Very cool Guitartom. I love the way it came out, the top back and sides really go well together. I’m a big fan of that sort of look. That’s nice Ash you used there too. Good job.
