With all of the doom & gloom bad news running rampant, I just want to say this thread makes me happy.

Carry on...

Recently received this unfinished project. Working out the plans for the final product. In the meantime, enjoy the flame. Brazilian fretboard off of a '55 to boot, no flame in that rosewood though... Some naptha on the upper bout to accentuate the possibilities. That's raw wood popping flames like that! Streaks and flecks too. I'm excited about this one.

That's such a lovely piece of maple. I'd be really really tempted to just go natural lacquer on that and let it gracefully yellow over the years. Definitely keep it subtle/light if you burst it, IMO.
