That is very nice! Looks like a pretty high gloss finish? what technique did you use?

Hi Simon, thanks and it is a nitro finish. Sprayed in many thin coats and finally buffed.

Martin,
That sure is classy, the fretboard & bridge fooled me for EIR.
The rosette done alone in paua looks spectacular & I would love to get a gloss finish like that.

Well done. . .
cheers wayne . . .
