Comments: If you're looking for outstanding finishing products for wood and string instruments, check out Mohawk Finishing (https://www.mohawk-finishing.com/). Their products made finishing this project a breeze, not to mention so much fun. I made this for my boyfriend's 23rd birthday, and he couldn't believe it! He kept saying, "You made a guitar! How did you make a guitar??" I loved building this, and the kit really was great to work with. My only complaint was the ugly plastic knobs. I found some solid brass ones on Amazon that really complete the look I wanted. This was so much fun, I want to start another one for myself!
