    Did some sanding on the body. Got the top pretty much where I want it.
    I also decided that I'm not going to do schellac on this, and probably go with an oil finish

    It's what I'm showing. It's nearly pitch black but actually has a redish hue to it. Here's how it looks in adiffernt lighting on a differnt bass. Came from the same piece of wood
