Is this nitrocellulose? Sorry I couldn't remember

I seem to remember doing two or three cans of clear when I have done em before, and if it's nitro you wsnt to leave it for a month!

This is looking amazing by the way, probably my favourite restoration on here

Just came across this thread. Am mightily impressed with the OP's skill and the quality of the restoration. Kudos, sir!

I must admit, my heart went pitter-pat when I saw that neck break – what a great save. And the color is lovely. I hope you find the pickups you need or are able to make them yourself.

I will surely be following along to see the end of the restoration.

Woao, such a cool project :)
Do you like tort guards? I think it would look killer on this guitar!
