Grain filler for glued bodies

Discussion in 'Luthier's Corner' started by blipndub, Jan 29, 2005.

  1. I'm afraid I don't even know the correct terminology!

    Ive got a two piece body with two other wood strips that run through the body and I"m wondering how to fill any gaps between the sections.

    I was planning on using grain filler but I'm concerned that it will show if there are any gaps. Will the grain filler end up transparent or will it be visible between the woods. I don't plan on applying any stain.

    Here's a pic of the body.


    Oh, and do I need to use a pore filler if I've used a grain filler?

    A body from Brazil? I have used the pore filler from stew-mac with good results.....t
  3. yeah this is one of the ebay exotic wood bodies from Marcio. It's very nice, although the neck pocket is a wee off.

    Pore filler is totally translucent, yes?
