It is a semi gloss polyurethane. It is a bit satin, but stilll has a good reflection.

That is tough, because to find a piece of quilted maple that large is nearly impossible. So it would depend mostly on that.

Got the zebrawood all glued up and am sanding it now. Should be able to hit it with clear tomorrow.
Got the V cleared too. Looks pretty awesome in person.
Will be starting 2 new projects soon. 1 will be a much more traditional style. Maybe that will get your attention!

I've never been a fan of scarfe joints on the neck but that guitar looks really nice that wood really pops and the top is amazing

Quality!

I came to the right thread.

You've got some really nice builds and ideas explorer. I am insanely jealous, the woods on them all just look so beautiful and Im digging the racing stripes
