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.

    What would be best used on a piece of flamed redwood to really bring out the figure before I lacquer? Is it common or even needed to use something under lacquer? I've used Deft lacquer on the last few basses with great results but the wood used in those projects had little figure to speak of so there was nothing to really enhance. Ideas would be much appreciated.
