    Wow! :eek: :lol: :eek: I knew you were moving fast but never expected it to be so well done so quickly! Beautiful instrument and sounds good too! Congratulations! Did you ever finish your build from last year? Looks like it was going to be fantastic.

    That is a great looking and sounding guitar--I don't care how long it took to build. The fact it was built so quickly only makes it that much more amazing. Great work.

    Don't know about the sealer but the lack of plasticizers in a good quality nitro lacquer speeds up the curing process. Providing the finish film is thin enough it can get introduced to the buffing wheel in 2 days (-;

    I'd love to find something like that commercially available here in the states. Waiting > 1 month to wet sand makes me sad. :(

    No... not commercially available... but you can ask a local manufacturer to put aside a gallon or two right before the plasticizers are added so there's no need to make an entire batch and get stuck with way too much lacquer.

    Yep - I was wondering that too...:confused:

    Great build thread, igork!...:cool:

    Congratulations on building such a fine looking instrument so quickly and so beautifully. Nice quality, sounds great (your friend Dzifon managed to find some lovely jazz tones - very fine playing indeed :cool:).

    Every year the standard of the build challenge just gets better and better...:D
