Starting a Broadcaster build. Neck is an Allparts u shaped one. Body is from Reverb. Needs a lot of finishing but I like the grain. It’s Ash. .01k cap with a 15k resistor. 250k pots. More to follow.

grain fill?

caution: I used Timbermate but in a color (walnut?) that ended up looking purplish under amber shellac

for a trad look, go for a darker color like ebony

I’ve got a jar of Goodfilla in ash I’m going try. I’ve never filled grain on a body so we get to if it’s a win or not.

Nice. Grainy . Never heard of that nitro , did U order it online

Yes, thru Amazon but I’ve ordered it direct in the past. Used to buy from ReRanch.

Before I looked closely, I thought it was a beer. If you're looking for beer names, there you go.

Ohio Valley
Nitro Butterscotch Lager
Or something like that.

Update! Painted the body. I’m sloppy.

I was going to use the Ohio Valley Butterscotch, but they were out of it when I was building my black guard tele. I used the Mohawk Blonde Toner instead. I actually prefer the Mohawk because I will yellow up over the years due to the nitro gloss coat on top. Otherwise, you can just use an Amber tint like the picture in sean138 that allows the grain to show through.
