I am in the final stages of planning out my first build, and I have a couple questions. How does a warmoth body blank compare to say...wood from home depot? Can I pick up wood of the same quality from a relatively inexpensive local place? As far as finishing goes, I am looking for something that dries pretty quickly, and doesn't require special equipment. (Nitrocellulose is out). I could use a water-based lacquer, but I understand that they take quite a while to dry. What about oils? For an alder body, I don't need a sealer or anything, do I? Just a topcoat? Thanks!
