Default SJ17, in finishing

Thanks Cigarfan.
Here is the guitar in finishing, waiting to cure before final sanding and polishing.
I am using almost the last KTM9 I have. Any recommendations about substitute water borne finishes would be appreciated.
The neck is torrefied flamed and birdseye maple, ebony fb. Also an experiment that I am sure is controversial, no adjustable neck rod, just 2 1/8" x 3/8" cf bars/rods. The reasoning that the adjustable neckrodslot weakens the neck makes sense to me, and that the cf is enough to stiffen the neck works, well, we shall see. LOL. It dos allow a lower profile neck, and I like that. It is an adjustable neck with partially elevated fb.
