    Neck arrived today. Very nice workmanship. Frets are pretty level, but the fret edges edges are not entirely smooth (not rough either). I may wait a few months and let it get acclimated before I round the edges.

    I applied some very very faint brown dye to age the maple a little, and fed the rosewood board with Howard Feed N Wax. Waterslides go on tomorrow.

    One of those paint can opener tools works good for this, as well. You might have one laying around. It works good on my '52 AVRI.
