« Part 3: Shaping the Body Part 4 of Strat Style Guitar series Part 5: Finish Part 2 and Assebly »

Final sanding is done and the body is read for finish.

I first de-waxed the shellac, and then applied four coats by hand. This photo is after the first coat.

I put the parts together to have a look-see what the final guitar might look like.

Now I’ll wait a while for the shellac to harden and then apply may coats of wipe on poly.

Looks like a straight forward project. I may have to make one for my brother. He is getting a guitar stand for Christmas this year if I ever get back to it.

How did your guitar come out?

Just completed the finish on the body and working on the shielding. More photos coming soon.
