    Is the burst lighter in the center, or is that just the way it looks with wet finish?

    Close enough you win, George!

    After getting maybe 5 coats in, the brown burst just became, I don't know, brown! And wrong. The pre finish brown was interesting but the varnish just mushed it up. After face timing Stacey, he gave me the go ahead to strip it! I could have lived with it but every time I looked at it I'd ask myself "does it look awesome?". That's not how it should be. It's much better when I look at, as I do this one, and say to self "wow I love that!". Soooo, it really only caused a few days set back so seems it was best decision ever!

    Working on neck, fretboard, inlay etc now.

    Man, I am getting excited. Sam has sent some awesome pics of the work. Pretty much know every inch of the guitar through his photos.

    This second run at the finish is perfect.

    Looking forward to seeing for finished!!!
