    Thanks!
    It`s clear nitro over stain.
    Too bad that it is impossible to get reranch products over here.
    I`m thinking about getting a spray gun.

    Thanks guys!
    #2 will have a P 90 in neck position.
    And a Callaham bridge.
    Did anyone say partscaster building is an addiction?
    They`re right!

    Since you are building a #2, you are sending this one to me, correct?;)
    That is a stellar guitar - you should be proud of it! Give us the lowdown on the parts...

    One to be very proud of for sure - congrats. Nice components and bet it plays/sounds great. Is that neck modern frets/radius?
