Eventually, if you stay if woodworking long enough, someone will ask you to build them a guitar. I made this one out of a wood "sandwich" of genuine mahogany, hard maple and pommele sapele. After all the hardware had been fitted, the bass guitar was finished with several coats of polyurethane, with each coat being wet sanded along the way. After the last coat, the finish was polished to a high luster and waxed silky smooth. #1350.
