Finishing Woe No Mo'

Not much of a photographer, but now, thanks in part to help on this forum, now I’m at least “officially” a builder. It’s a Sapele Mahogany Tele named Franklin, after my son who custom-cut the body out for a school project. Anyway, nobody wants to hear, "sand it down to 220 and start again", but that is exactly what I needed to do. The finish is flawless now, glossy and smooth. I just wanted to post a note to thank those that offered some needed advice at a frustrating time in the finishing process, especially Ken Hundley, Ray Ray, Jim H, and of course, Bill Cory. Thanks again. Frank
