TDPRI Telecaster - Finishing

Before I could startI start finishing process, I strung up the guitar. This would by my last chance to make any major corrections without having to worry about screwing up the finish. No corrections needed. And I love how she feels. Just as good as my ES-125, only different.

I started rubbing shellac on the top of the body and then the sides. At some point while applying the shellac, I smudged the side. To fix it, I had to sand the spot back with 320 grit, then re-apply the shellac.

I applied several coats of Tru-Oil to the neck and shellac to the body today. I'll keep doing this for a couple more days, and then wet sand the body and neck.
