treble side is pretty much done but lots more of the bass side to do

that is looking very sexy! The grain really is wonderful, it'll look simply stunning under the matt or satin finish.
Did you say you were going for satin? I think satin will look soooo good (the sort of 'good' were you can't find the right words to describe it!!!)

ok, i see.
I think satin would be the best alround, possible last the longest without showing up the slight marks/ buckle rash etc.

Also high gloss polyester would look amazing, the grain would be glowing! You do often get nice contrasts through polyester. Could also look good on the head stock, neck, back and side of body.... satin on top. Just a thought.

*edit*: probably satin!!

that headstock is also awesome. let's not neglect it's loveliness!!!

seriously though, that's really coming along nicely. That's shit about your pc, but these things happen. a friend of mine doing his repeats lost everything too, but fortunately, like you, he had the important stuff on an external hard drive.

cant wait to see the finish on it

its the same stuff as korina - the wood the original flying v's and explorers were made out of. korina is white limba
and yeah, on the front its a pretty good match - happy accident rather than by design tho hehe.

got the burst done yesterday. was going to do the clear today only my spray gun is leaking out of every orifice so im going to have to get a new one.

i went a bit black happy on the neck, but ah well. also, theres not the huge difference in brightness of the neck and back as there looks to be in the pic either
