Warmoth vintage style T body. This morning I routed for humbucker neck & S middle pickups.



Grainfilling in progress.

Grainfill done, neck tinted.



I used the same BLO/pumice filler, sans dye. I should have measured this time but I forgot. Laughing

It was probably a couple of ounces of BLO, and definitely 2 heaping tablespoons of pumice. It was just enough to do the whole body. I did have to add about a capful of mineral spirits toward the end because it was getting too thick. I'm loving this stuff.

Really good finish. Shows off the grain very well. Nice job!

Basically the same as on a Warmoth guard, i.e. don't take the plastic off if you're a dumbass.

Won't be long now.

That is a beautiful guitar, very, very nice job. Could you elaborate on how you tinted the neck please? That seems to be the hardest part to get right and that one looks perfect.
