RE: dark shellac performance (in reply to jalalkun

really? 😳 think twice, its 200 hours at least and the outcome is most likely not what you imagine. but if you are patient and willing to handle a lot of failure, go for it! 😎
after my soundboardsurface looked like it has cellulite all over the place, its now flat again and beautiful. i think i can glue the bridge at the beginning of the next week. i will start a new tread later on and tell you something more about it (to compensate the uneasiness and anxious excitement thats getting bigger and bigger as the moment of truth comes closer).

yes, really. I have never really been blessed with a talent in craftsmanship, but I want to challenge myself and it's really appealing to me. if my clumsy hands learned to play the guitar at an acceptable level, then they might build one as well it doesn't have to be pretty or good, I just want to see where my curiosity can take me.

keep us posted about your baby, and don't forget: I look forward to trying it out 😜😂

than go for it, jajal, but be aware, its addictive! 👍
polishing problems with the dark shellac doesnt stop. while the soundboard looks nice and clean now, back and sides doesnt fit anymore aesthetically (they look more like 30 years aged in a room full of cigarette smoke). im thinking about refinishing back and sides also 🤯. probably first put strings on and refinish later. i love the amber look of dark shellac, but it is an art in itself to achieve a even result. i have lot of respect for those of you, who mastered it!

Darker shellac seems to dry harder than the blonder, lighter types. However it is harder to get an even color result if you are new to FP. As your skills progress you will find it easier to get an even colored result. I like the LMI #3 shellac (#1-#5).
