I've applied the first layer of varnish 2 days ago but I haven't had time to touch the project since.
Here are some pics of this before sanding:






BTW, how shall I sand it? OOOO steel wool only?

I've already asked this here and there was no answer... So I give it another try:
Which pickup covers I should go with in your opinion? I thought about closed white with mahagony rings, but I'm open for more suggestions :P

I take it that tinfoil rig counts the number of winds? Interesting idea.
