Because Photobucket has chosen to in effect "take down" everyone's photos (unless you pay them), we have extended post edit time in the Luthier's Corner to UNLIMITED.  If you used photobucket and happen to still have your images of builds, you can go back and fix as many of your posts as far back as you wish.

    Using a light wax or oil, rub it up and down with non Abrasive white scotch brite or 0000 steel wool to get all the dirt out of the grain. Then wipe clean with a paper towel. Then put oil or oil/wax on it with the towel, let soak in for 15-30 minutes, then wipe dry again. Do this or as necessary between string changes.
