its working fine and is only messing up a little cosmetically, and even then its very little.

think i may have gone a little deep though.

any idea where i can get some of that gloss from the internet or the UK? i really should have thought of that beforehand :S


eh no idea i live in the states, but our normal hardware store had it under wood cabinets section of the store haha smile.gif

as far as how deep to go... i went down to right about my markers on the top (facing you when playing) part of the neck.... that seemed to work good for me...

and when you done and start shedding dont get discurouge at first of how weird it feels... with a days practice i had it down and loved it smile.gif

ummm the brand was like minwax... but any polyurathane clear gloss should work.

Well in theory if you scallop a binded (bound?) neck it could mess up the binding a bit because you will file away some of it.
I haven't any experience with it though so i'm just speculating based on observation.


It would depend how deep the binding went, but you'd probably end up going through it and it would look a little wierd ...
