The Guitar Saga, Post VII

This past Saturday I very lightly sanded with 800 finish paper, cleaned, and then put several coats on.  Sunday wet-sanded to level, cleaned, and then the last, very light, finishing coat.  Here's what it looks like now:

Yeah, looks a lot better than with the original finish flaking off.

The lacquer instructions say to let it dry 6-8 days before stringing; I'm going to give it the full eight, so I'll string it Tuesday, and see how it sounds.

It looks a LOT better; overall, happy with how it's turned out.

Now I just have to wonder for another few days if it's affected the sound...
