So Luke finally received his Tele Body and Neck from the showcase today!!! and we couldn't be more excited!
We started working on it straight away! Like the first Soycaster, we won't fill grain, since we are after a natural open grain look!
just a light sand here and there, and some cleaning with Naphta:

here are pictures of before and after the first coat of Tru Oil - See how much of a difference it made! the grain and different colors of the pao ferro came popping out, and the light Mahogany turned into a warm red, with some nice grain, (ribbons?) and even some flame coming out! it's even better in person!!

Before:

Very nice indeed, that pau just looks sweet with the tru-oil. The mahogany is pretty spectacular too, but it would have looked so much better with some black grain fill in the mahogany...

This is the back of my spalted tele after the black grain fill... :headbang1:

I gotta be honest, I like it more with out.. same with my black korina backed strat.. something about no grain fill really appeals to me, the look and the feel.  :tard:

Oh, don't get me wrong Luke. That back on that is scrumptiously delicious, but the black grain fill IMO tends to enhance the grain structure a bit more. But that does look fabulous without a doubt... :eek:ccasion14:

Advise me bretheren..

I can't seem to find the DiMarzio 36th PAF in Gold.. at all.. so unless someone can point me to it, I'm open to many recommendations.

Thanks!  :headbang:
