    I've got a Gibson Ripper that I've stripped and it's just about ready to finish. I'm thinking about an oil finish but I'd like to see some pics before I commit. tung or tru, it doesn't matter! I'm pretty sure I want to spray a nitro or poly coat over it but that's subject to change, too (I'm planning on having to spray the fingerboard as it's maple). so if you've got one, let's see 'em!

    thanks in advance,

    Here are a couple of Spector's I sued to own with Oil Finished. Sorry, but they're not the best quality pics:

    This is an oil basecoat, before my hard resin topcoat.
