    Just finished shooting nitro on my first ever build. Neck-through-body Les Paul-type. Came out way better than I had hoped. Now I have to sit on my hands for a month before I can wet sand a buff it. Gonna be a LONG month...

    Waiting is definitely the hardest part.

    But that looks beautiful. Great job!
