Took some time, but the finish has been applied and the rosewood really pops.

I really don't like uber sticky/shiny finishes so with my shellac/french polish I usually go for a mild gloss instead of super duper nitro levels of shiny. Tends to make the guitar feel a bit more organic too in my opinion.

matthewpatrick since you asked for another back shot here you go.







Since rosewood bleeds like crazy with shellac I ended up having to do a good bit of separate finishing to keep the bindings looking clean with as little bleed over as possible from the rosewood. I'm happy with the contrasting colors though.

Fingerboard and neck are next. Not much longer until this one is making noise!
