    That right there is what it's all about!

    We've all made plenty of mistakes, it's what separates the good finishers from the bad ones.

    Keep a cool head, good attitude & you'll surprise yourself more often than not.

    Looking good~! :cool:

    Great job man. Where are you going to let it sit for a month though? That's one thing I've always wondered about the nitro curing process. Does it have to hang for a month?

    Well, the month is up and I just started final sanding and polishing.... will reassemble and set up within the next week.

    Led, not sure it's better than yours, but thanks!

    Berserker, I left it up in my attic (heated) I only refin'd the top so I was able to let it lie flat on a table.... I'd say if you were doing a full refinish, hanging it's your only real option.

    Thanks guys...... I think it came out pretty well for a newbie project. Now once I find where that missing pup ring is I'll be putting it all back together and finally playing the damn thing!

    bfcg, Thanks for the scrap wood offer; I'll PM you about it.
