This blog is about the construction of my acoustic guitar kit and any other guitars that I decide to build I have built a couple of electrics but this is a big step,forward - I hope!

Starting the finish -Long time between drinks!

Well between work (you wouldn't do it if it wasn't for the money) and the weather (over 300mm of rain in a week) I finally found some hours to get back into the shed today.

I sanded the guitar down but the spruce top has some dark marks in it which I don't like.

I had sanded over the Rosette and this has stained the spruce top.It looks like its kind of set into the grain.

I decided to put a "spit" coat of Shelac on and it looked like garbage.

I have now sanded it right back, but I dont know if I should keep sanding or not.

I am starting to realise that this is never going to be the perfect guitar.
