All the parts are in. eBay ash 2 piece body, 3lbs 11ounces Allparts TMO-V neck Allparts "bakelite" guard Tonerider A3 hot classic pickups Rutter's knobs Kluson single line tuners. Lots of Fender parts for the rest. I found a good "how-to" for late 40s/50s blonde furniture, and I'm trying that. Sand, seal, grain fill, seal, white wash. That's where I'm at now. Next will be Behlens stringed instrument lacquer. It already has a very slight amber hue in the can and I'm of the understanding that it does turn darker over time. The neck will probably get one seal coat then a few coats of the Behlens lacquer, again no tint, just letting nature take it's course. I'm going for the catalog look!
