nice! decision on stain or natural?

still undecided!
silly and all as It sounds I've not really figured out if its primarily an electric or acoustic instrument.
if its the former I'd go with a blue stain/tinted shellac finish, if the latter possibly clear.
I'll wire up the pickup this evening to see how it works...
Engleman spruce I used for the top is strange - seems to have very loose fibres for want of a better word - I did this with masking tape! It’s obviously strong, but flakey.. hopefully the seal coat will help pull it together

I’m planning to make a pickguard from scraps of mahogany left from the back in any case
