Blue-Eyed "Blonde"

Builder: David


TL-style build of standard TL in basswood and maple neck.

First guitar build. Filled basswood grain with shellac/spirits blend. Stained with a varthane vintage aqua stain, stripped most of stain back with spirits because of blotches. Re-stained with vintage aqua but thinned with 1/4 spirits. Finished with about 10 coats of minwax polycrylic (semi-gloss) with wet-sanding between about 2-3 coats. Last step was polish with Meguiar's car wax.

A new set of strings and sounding ok out of the box. Looking forward to learning how to do a proper set up. Currently has very high action.
