    man that looks amazing, I love the padauk in the scarf joint, that's such a nice touch. It really ties the guitar together.

    Well, now that Photobucket has decided to turn to a life of highway robbery, I'm in the process of migrating my pics elsewhere. In fact, I'll likely end up creating my own gallery site....

    Seriously though, here's what I've been working on this week:

    What kind of oil finish do you use? The oil finish on KnightBrolaire's Exploder looks phenomenal as do the two guitars in your last post.

    Seems a little pricey but looks great. I might try it out at some point.

    ^Yup, Odie's is my fave for sure. Dead simple to use, looks awesome, smells fantastic. Probably tastes alright too, just haven't tested it.

    It's actually not so expensive, a little goes a loooooong way. I can easily finish 5 guitars with a single jar, so that works out to 8-ish bucks a pop. Not bad!

    Sweet! May I ask, was there any pre-oil grain filling for alexes black limba explorer? Or just sand and oil? Limba looks like a wide open grain type.

    I don't usually grain fill with oil finishes, the natural look and feel are what I'm accentuating in these cases.
