Before: With 2 coating sessions of Birchwood Casey Tru-Oil: The thing is going to need another 5 coats or so before I do a final wax coat, but you get the general idea. I'm taking it slow. It's getting a Fender Original '62 pickup, a chrome Bad-ass II and one hole with a stacked 500K volume and tone pot (chrome too). Output Jack is at bottom. Should look classy and clean. Any tips on getting a nice clean glossy Tru-oil finish? How am I doing? Today I applied a nice sticky full-strength coat and then gave it a 'wash coat' with 50:50 Tru-Oil and mineral spirits, rubbing it and the tacky stuff in with a 3M white rubbing pad.
