Finally got the oils I ordered last week.

Here's the current state of the Firebird after being oiled(first layer) and tinted.

The picture doesn't do any justice for the real thing though. The grains have almost 3d-quality in them. Especially the maple neck almost looks like flame maple.

Edit: Took a closeup of the horn.

Heck of a nice start!

From the title of the thread I had horrid images of someone submerging their guitar in oil and baking it in the oven.  :laughing7:

No problems with that. This is a one piece body. As far as I know. I don't see any glue marks on the body

Finished the second coat.

And no I didn't use the rapeseed oil you see in the background )
