Coated in oil and hanging around to dry.
A week later. The oil is finally dry. I have sanded the guitar up to 2000 grit using wet/dry paper and mineral spirits. It will take another day for the mineral spirits to gas off. Then we start on the final finish.
The padauk is all one color now. The oil darkened everything significantly.
The ribs of the maple are very visable now.
Truss rod cover made.
