LP Jr (Six) Final String Up Test and Grain Filler

So after leveling the frets, I decided to string Six up and test it out acoustically. Here's just a simple B minor chord progression.

And here is a little blues improv in E.

After taking of the strings and tuners it's time to fill the grain. I'm following the suggestion of one of the people at our local Woodcrafter. She suggested that because the grain is so fine that I could just use shellac. She recommended coating it on thickly. And then sand it back to the wood. I'll do the sanding tomorrow.
