Ive been working with the luthier at work alot, and learning tons. Eventually (long term goal lol) id like to make money doing this stuff, but feasible or not i intend to continue. For now though, Im just doing this as a learning experience, and as a fun hobby
Question to the luthier types. i was looking at an oil/wax finish for this. i lovelovelove tung oiled mahogany necks, but im not sure how that would handle on the ash. wax finish the body and oil the neck? Just looking for some advice on this one
