Oh and as for progress...
Good news - I got the finish sprayed (I think it looks FANTASTIC) and the tuners installed. I used Deft satin spray lacquer, and it did a great job.

Bad news -I tried to do my fret level and crown, but it appears thay my technique is somewhat lacking. I butchered it horribly even though I had the correct tools. Apparently there's an element of art to it that I don't have. So the next step is to remove the frets and try again.

I'll try to get some pics up this week of the finish.
