Nice! Did you spray the nitro?


No, I stripped the body with a heatgun, took the varnish off the back of the neck with Naptha then had local Luthier Steve Barkman spray the Nitro which I then rubbed down a bit to take some of the shine off with more Naptha.

At least they did a better job drilling holes in the body than the neck!

Yeah I moved the bridge too far right... Its aesthetic. I need to plug the holes (again) and move it left about 2 mm. Then remove the left shim and make one for the right.

Its complicated hahaha.

It plays great so its all in the looks!
