Excellent! Absolutely lovely looking instrument.I took everythin off or poked it down into the holes like the volume and tone pots and toggle. The pickups I just used a few thick rags and moved them out of the way setting them on the rags as i did each area of the guitar. I also used the Meguiar's but used the Ultimate Compound cause that's all walmart had... I had org started on the back of the guitar because the back was all gritty feeling and i wanted to knock that down. Aweek or so later i did some work to the guitar and decided while i had it apart i would do the top of the guitar. I chose to do it by hand because i didn't want a supper high gloss!! I started off by just using a clean rag to apply the stuff and rub it out then a clean fine cloth to polish the guitar. I too ran into orange peel but found the more i went over it the less there was. The tight areas took a little more work. I found that after a while wetting the application rag and using that to rub the polish into the finish i was making faster progress and it started looking better too. I honestly like the way the guitar came out. I didn't do the back of the neck or head stock just the back and sides of the guitar... Hope this helps man good luck....
The neck on my 59 is the chunkiest neck I've ever owned. I've seen reviews and forum posts that will say it's "not as big as such & such" but it's stout to me, and I've got hands on the bigger side, long thin fingers, etc.the 59 neck is not the best choice for thumb over style i tried it and its not comfortable , the V shape as mentioned its ideal , if this is mainly your style i would suggest you to look for a strat
